Award-winning rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris has just made a promise to his wife to stop cheating on her forever. The oath, which was made yesterday, comes on the heels of Lil Duval’s “Black Men Don’t Cheat” single which has now turned into a challenge. The rapper posted the message on his Instagram, and many fans are raising their eyebrows and rolling their eyes by the announcement.
According to a source, T.I. is currently working on a remix for the recently released song.
“Smile (Living My Best Life)” singer, Lil Duval wants to change the narrative of how black men are viewed when it comes to relationships. He recently released a new single “Black Men Don’t Cheat” with the help of Charlamagne Tha God. On Wednesday, he tweeted, “Today we celebrate all the men that try to be faithful. From this day forth, we will try harder to be better. BLACK MEN STAND UP!!!”
Charlamange also posted an image onto his Instagram page with the faces of several black male celebrities.
It’s no secret the T.I. has not been the most faithful of husbands, in fact, rumor has it that he has been cheating throughout the couple’s two-decade-long relationship. He has been caught cheating on Tiny over a dozen times, each time saying that he would try to do better.
Things came to a head when Tiny served him divorce papers, but decided to change her mind and work on her marriage.
A source close to the Atlanta-based rapper says that he is very serious this time around and that the vow has given TI a renewed sense of faith and commitment to fidelity. Many people are proud of him, including Lil Duval, who posted a message on his Instagram. He wrote, “Tip took the oath and said he solemnly swears to try his best to be faithful from this day forth.”
But not everyone is as supportive of T.I.’s promise.
Some fans commented “Tip knows he’s a Jussie Smollet lie, y’all funny asf!” one person wrote. Another said, “His best is undoubtedly not good enough, he’ll break this oath expeditiously.” One more fan said, “Okay, Tip, I’ll play along…”
The hashtag #blackmendontcheat is now trending, and so is T.I.’s story. We’ll have to wait and see if he keeps his word.
