Clifford “T.I.” Harris covers Upscale Magazine’s September/October 2013. The self-proclaimed King of the South showed his pearly whites on the cover and dished on how he’s shifted his image, his fatherly duties, convincing little Major to get mic’d up and turning down a record deal.

Excerpts from the interview below:

On being known as a father at this point in his career:
I guess a lot of things I’ve done in my career that I’ve gained attention for I wouldn’t have never really concluded that would’ve been a probable outcome… I guess [being known for being] a husband and a father is better than the guy with the machine guns and silencers.

On turning down a couple million for a record deal:
I get that from The Family Hustle and we’re not even talking managers cut, that’s just me—not Tameka—that’s just what I’m getting. I can get that on my own, I can get that on tour.

On convincing Major to get mic’d up for the show Family Hustle:
Sometimes he just doesn’t like to be fooled with, like, ‘I’m not into it today… I don’t force him to do nothing. I let [the production crew] handle that. For a while Gushers worked. He was like, ‘Ok, I’ll do one scene for a pack of Gushers’ and then the Gushers stopped working. One time they came and said, ‘If you come down we’ll give you five dollars’ and he said, ‘What?! I’ll give you five dollars.’

T.I. is best known for his hustle so there’s no stopping him when it comes to getting that paper and he’s molding his kids into being self-made millionaires as well.
