T.I. and Tiny Mimic the Huxtables


Two years ago T.I. drew comparisons between his family and the fictional Huxtable family lead by Cliff and Claire Huxtable [click here if you missed that].

With the new promo for T.I. & Tiny The Family Hustle on VH1 the transformation is complete...

Cliff and Claire had chemistry. Claire was charming and well spoken. I'll stop there.

Comparison? So gaudy and materialistic living, "hustling" and ignorant sounding broken slave English is comparative to the Cosby show? Thank goodness I handed that "black card" over years ago.

Vh1 has been dead to me since the Road Rules, Alanis Morrissette era. Matter of fact, that channel is blocked on my cable box. Utter trash.

They shuck and jive and YA'll sheep love it!!.. They will never EVER in this life come close to the positivity The Cosby Show showed. One minute T.I is TRYING to promote positivity, then the next minute he's rapping about "Trap Life" and phucking hoe's and bitches. Bill Cosby never did that did he? T.I aint sh!t but a puppet and ya'll falling for it

yall are a bunch of hypocrites on here.... First of all The Cosby show was a fictional family show, yes in their real lives they were well kept people in the public eye but you don't know what they were actually doing behind close doors, i'm pretty sure Bill did something in his time.... Second why are ya'll knockin a Man who is just trying to make an honest living for him and his family... yes he has a past just like all of us but what made your better then his???? He rap about "trappin" and whateva for entertainment purpose that is what the fans want to hear they don't want to hear him rapping about "getting jiggy with it" or "summer flowers" i mean really.... and not all Vh1 show aren't that bad just "Love and Hip Hop" which I'm pretty sure half of yall be tuning in on mondays watching it cause when every blog writes a post about it ya'll be right in here commenting about it..... if it so much trash why bother???? I never understood that from people... why give engery into something that don't tickle your fancy??? anyways I'm glad it is coming back I actually like the show... yeas he has his faults but he keep his children in line so they won't end up like him... and he show how to earn a dollar instead of living off him

It is interesting that people who obviously did not appreciate/understand/relate to what 'The Cosby Show' endorsed and exhibited are always attempting to bring up the personal lives of the cast members. At this point, that is irrelevant. What is relevant, however, is the fact that 'The Cosby Show' was created in 1984 and gave an inspiring, wholesome depiction of Black family life and excellence for the entire world to see, and it is still adored by many today. Contrary to ignorant belief, there were and are real Black families out there whose pedigrees mimic the Huxtables'.

@MsLee I hate this generation b/c they take everything and ruin it. Music, movies, fashion is all ruined. Calling Rihanna & Beyonce "icons" is borderline mentally ill shit. These young niggas would rather watch "Martin" and "The Wayans Bros" and call these coon shows legends but then try to say "The Cosby Show" was garbage OR unrealistic.

@MsLee I don't know a better way to agree with you. You spoke truth. It is sad that people believe the Cosby Show was fictional as if it is impossible to be reality.

Ms. Lee said...

When I heard people seriously saying that 'The Cosby Show' was unrealistic, it made me realize that not everyone has or wants the ability to dream big and become. Having a family of five with both parents being respected professionals is not impossible or unrealistic at all. You have to want better in order to do better, and with that, you ultimately become better.

Ms. Lee can I marry you? Wow....what a brilliant mind!! People are mentally lost out here, and you seem to get it. Very refreshing...

I already have a husband (I am assuming you are male), but thank you. I appreciate your sentiments. :-)

I am not about to kill my precious watching these inbred crack babies and their fake ass foolery, I would rather watch paint dry its far more interesting, than these herpatic, hepatitis hoes.

Cute Family. Tiny's daughter Zonnique is a very pretty girl.

Hated it. That shit was all over the place. Zonnique is a pretty girl and so is Deyjah. Shes growing up fast. Havent watched in a while. Do the girls still act awkward around him?

Anonymous said...

And what exactly is stoppingTiny from getting that awful ass job redone or reconstructed or something?

Anonymous said...

I luv these two's "do what I say and not what I do" mentality towards their children. Then compare themselves to a fictional t.v show.
sidenote: did shaunie and shaq compare themselves to the brady bunch?

God, I love crazy! I live for this shit.

I have watched the show and it's pretty good. Yeah the parents both have shady pasts, but who doesn't?! I'll leave it at that.

Bee Gee said...

I'll probably never be interested enough to watch this show, but I just saw this clip as their ode to the Cosby's. Obviously He's no doctor and she's now lawyer, but maybe they're just saying that they believe in the inspiration that The Cosby Show injected into them as people of color.

Maybe when we stop putting the Cosby's on this unattainable pedestal, we'll realize that many of us have in fact followed through on Bill Cosby's vision and are shifting the paradigm of thought (that African-American families can't be the Cosby's") one family at a time.

I'm not insulted by Tip and his family paying homage to the Cosby's. That show had a profoundly positive effect on me..

I think they are very cute. Everybody loved the Cosby's, what's the problem?

Bee Gee shut up...you trying to kick some knowledge coon? Be seated, because you have done nothing but promote foolishness in the comment section for years. Sit down sheep!

Bee Gee said...

@1:55pm - I see you learned a new word ("sheep"), huh..

Anonymous said...

Bee Gee have a seat. TI is a typical rapper with a ghetto wife and bunch of out-of-wedlock children. If they're really paying homage to Dr. Cosby, Ms. Rashad and The Cosby Show in general, they ain't really the right "type" of people to be doing that. They honestly represent everything the Huxtables weren't. The Cosby kids had the same parents, they were educated, etc. Nice try, but TI and his clan look dumb ass hell up there trying to be the new age Cosby's and you're just as dumb for co-signing this coon mess.

Anonymous said...

lmaoooooooooooooo @ 1:55. he swears he refined. lmao. nigga is clown.

Bee Gee said...

@2:13pm - You don't get to decide who pays homage to whom and what way they choose to do it in. And tell me where I'm co-signing on what you feel is their attempt to be the new age Cosby's. I don't know if that's what they're doing and I don't even care. Like I said, I just see THIS CLIP as them paying homage, and I have no problem with that. Smh

Anonymous said...

2:13 please STFU. Nobody in here cosigned them as the next Cosby family. Overreact much????

hell bill cosby and phylicia rashad weren't anywhere near the characters they played..bill has a problem with keeping his thang in his pants and phylicia had a huge coke problem before the cosby show..so if ti and tiny want to compare themselves to beill cosby and phylicia rashad than go ahead ..

@10:26 MsLee, I agree!

@10:53 oh shit. That explains it- I didnt watch the clip. Lol!

Bee Gee said...

@3:53pm - Baby it will never be that serious and I will never donate enough fucks. You need to find a mirror, stare into it for about 10 seconds, then ask the reflection "how did you become 3 kinds of crazy?"..

So, I'm not trying to be funny but is this going to be the "hoodrat" version of the Crosby show? What's next? Are they going to take the cameras to the kids school and do a "hoodrat" version of "A Different World?" *blink blink* yeah, ummm...I can't wait.

These ghetto dusty niggas shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as





the Huxtables.

Isn't it amazing how many perks you get when you snitch, lie, and take the oath? Money, fame, power and the list goes on... The Harris family is riding high on the hog, y'all. In no time at all they've move up higher on the puppet ladder. I ain't mad...IJS!

Bee-Gee, I usually agree with you but:

"
I'm not insulted by Tip and his family paying homage to the Cosby's. That show had a profoundly positive effect on me.. "

This I don't agree with it. If you like them fine. But just so you know these are some ghetto, hood rich, rank, stank niggas. The daddy out giving skrippers (yes, SKRIPPERS) sniff tests, the mama look like 15 different types of hell on the beach with her ass on Instagram and posing with nasty dank strippers at the club. Her little daughters in that hoodrat-version of My Little Pony music group OMG Girlz, singing about "Gucci this, Gucci that!" and "Where da boyz at"?

Just stop. Enough already supporting ghettoism.

Bee Gee said...

@7:59pm - I don't like Tiny & Tip. I never have. All I was saying is that I have no problem with what I see as them paying homage to The Cosby Show. They couldn't taint or disrespect what the Cosby show symbolized if they tried. They'd only look stupid trying.

To me this just looks like they were having a little fun with the intro to the new season, not trying to pimp themselves as The Huxtables. I didn't look into it anymore than that. I don't look at it as supporting ghettoism, but everyone has their own way of seeing things and I respect that.

Best comments of the day are from 1:11pm and 1:55pm you two had me dying laughing up in here. Please proceed!!!

Talk about jumping to conclusions. All these ppl did was mimic the intro to the cosby show and you rachets get carried away and think they are claiming to be cliff and clair? Black ppl are such simps sometimes.

Y'all so fucking dumb... The Huxtables are indeed a fictional family. No one ever alluded to the fact that you can't have a Huxtable-esque family only that they are indeed a fake family. It is rather foolish to place these people on a pedestal for playing characters. Especially Bill Cosby who as been accused several times of sexual harassment and assault since we are digging into people's personal lives. TI and Tiny are human just like anyone else and half of you trifling bitches are or were unwed mothers so stop judging these people based on standards and ideals that neither you nor the sainted Huxtables live by.
