T.I. found himself in the middle of controversy last year when speaking on protecting his daughter’s sex life and he caught the vitriol of social media once again this week regarding his parenting. While interviewing 21 Savage on his ExpediTIously podcast Thursday (December 17), Tip described him spending quality time with his daughters as “Thot prevention hours.”
The comments came in response to 21, who explained how he instinctively felt more overprotective for his daughters than his sons, which the trap pioneer and father of six agreed with.
“Because sons can’t get pregnant,” T.I. began. “You can’t keep her from running into one of them niggas. Me and Lil Duval call it thot prevention hours. Keep your daughter off the pole. You spending time going to daddy-daughter dances and taking her on trips where it’s just you and her, those are thot prevention hours.”
He continued, “You don’t do that, they’re gonna be somewhere in Magic City tryna figure it out. That is absolutely necessary for any father. If you ain’t putting in your thot prevention hours and your daughter end up a dancer, don’t blame her now. You did not set an example. You did not show what the fuck it was that she should be doing versus what she’s doing.”
The rest of the in-depth 90-minute conversation between the ATL staples touches on doing music together, their back-and-forth poker matches, romance and much more. T.I. recently joined forces with 21 for “Thank God” off his October The L.I.B.R.A. album.
The 40-year-old previously felt the outrage of social media in November 2019 when detailing how he would take his teenage daughter, Deyjah, to have her hymen checked when she was “15 or 16” to ensure her virginity.
