T.I. Addresses Sexual Assault Allegations in his Newly Released “What It’s Come To” Music Video

T.I.’s new single “What It’s Come To” has quickly gained attention from the media and many fans are shocked. T.I. has decided to use the track’s music video as a way to publicly address the sexual assault abuse allegations brought up by over ten women that were made against him and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris. 

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, and his wife have both denied the allegations. 

In the “What It’s Come To” music video visual references are used to portray the accusations against Harris as a conspiracy. One specific accuser is labeled as “The Parasite” and showcased to play the role of the ring leader within the news stories. Throughout the video, “The Parasite” is shown working on an evidence board that targets the famous couple, gathering other women and a lawyer to bring claims against them.

T.I. and Tiny both appear in the music video, and it is very clear their position on the alleged crimes. The video includes a quote from licensed marriage and family therapist Syreeta Butler saying, “A toxic person will create drama and then portray themself as a victim.”

An alleged victim, Sabrina Peterson claimed on Instagram that T.I. once put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her. In March, she sued the couple to still no avail, and she has also shared other women’s stories. 

The current claims made against T.I. and Tiny have been out in the public for several months now. 

These allegations are said to have occurred between 2005 and 2018 within California and Georgia. Tyrone A. Blacksburg served as the initial attorney representing 11 alleged victims before even more came forward. 

According to Blackburn, his clients are pressing charges for claims including sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, false imprisonment, intimidation, assault and harassment.

These accusations are denied by T.I. and Tiny, and they are still under investigation within the Los Angeles Police Department.
