Getting Money On You Lames: From The Ceil To VH1, T.I. Lands New Reality Show

Earlier I reported that T.I. was released from prison, after serving an 11-month sentence for a parole violation after an L.A. drug arrest. The King of the South hasn’t been home for an entire day yet, and he already landed a new TV gig. VH1 has announced plans for a new show; which would follow the Hip-Hop mega super star as he re-adjusts to life as a free man, husband and father as he reunite with Tiny and his children. The show will also focus on T.I. in the studio working on his new album.

As of press, the doc-series is still “untitled” and will debut on December 5 at 10pm. Read a statement from VH1 top executives Jeff Olde below:

“Viewers have always connected with T.I. and we are definitely thrilled to show the next chapter of this incredible artist’s riveting life with this new series,” said Jeff Olde, EVP, Original Programming and Production VH1. “T.I. is such a multi- talented artist and actor, and though he has had some setbacks, there is no doubt he will use his considerable talents to get back on top of both the music and film business.”

A Star Is Born: Should Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith Be Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Baby’s Godfather?

Over this past weekend, the Interweb went crazy, even setting a world record on social networking site Twitter, when it was announced that Jay-Z’s wife Beyoncé gave birth to the billionaire music couple first baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter. There are a few good people who will be a great godfather to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s baby such as Kanye West, Memphis Bleek, OG Juan, Steve Stoute and even Diddy himself. After carefully thinking about who would be the best godfather for The Carters baby, I came up with Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith.

Ty-Ty is Jay-Z ‘s childhood friend and road manager. When Jay-Z was the President of Def Jam Recording, Ty Ty served as Vice President. He also was the A&R of a few of Rihanna’s albums including Music Of The Sun, A Girl Like Me, Good Girl Going Bad, and Rated R. Since Reasonable Doubt, Jay-Z have been shouting out Ty Ty.

Can’t stop I, from drinkin Mai Tais, with Ty Ty/Down in Nevada, ha ha, poppa, word life” – “Dead Presidents II” from Reasonable Doubt.

And they was havin a lil’ trouble with the pool…You and Ty Ty was laughin’…Emory was there, what up Emory? What up Ty?” – “My 1st Song” from The Black Album.

And I brought my boys with me, say what up to Ty Ty/Still sippin’ Mai Tais, sitting courtside/Knicks and Nets give me high fives…” – “Empire State of Mind” from The Blueprint 3.
