The Harris family is full of talent. Although T.I. and Tiny are known for their professional rapping and singing skills, they aren’t the only ones in the family with musical skills. The duo’s 26-year-old daughter, Zonnique, followed in her mother’s footsteps as a singer, while 21-year-old Domani took the rap route like her father.
What fans didn’t see coming was Tip’s oldest son, Messiah, embarking on his own journey as a country music star. A video of the 22-year-old making his artist debut at Vinyl in Center Stage Atlanta has made its rounds online.
Performing under his stage name Buddy Red, Messiah wowed the crowd with his blues-inspired record while playing electric guitar. Messiah took to Instagram to share a clip of himself performing his record, ‘Quand je rêve’, sharing, “Can you say this is my first live performance? You all made it feel so good to be up there, I really appreciate it. The song I’m playing is out right now: ‘When I Dream’-Buddy Red.
Tiny also took to Instagram to congratulate the Family Hustle star or his first gig, writing, “We had an amazing time watching our son do his thing on his very first show! I love how he got so into the guitar that he taught himself how to play; that’s talent!
While Messiah, Domani and Zonnique put their talents to good use, the family’s second son, King Harris, received different attention. Earlier this year, the 18-year-old made headlines following an altercation with a Waffle House employee. Months later, he was arrested for unknown reasons, but posted bail soon after. Tip has spoken publicly about King’s antics, admitting his son could end up in jail if he continues on his reckless course.
