T.I.’s son King has found himself in some legal trouble.

It looks like the 18-year-old was arrested, though it’s unclear why. Tip has now responded following his son’s incident.

“Got a small request,” T.I. said. “Stop hitting me and getting in my comments, telling me what to tell King, okay? I know my son. Think I ain’t spoke to my son? Think I ain’t told my son, his mama, and his grandmama? His ass going to prison if he goddamn keeps up. His ass going to prison. Ain’t no way around it. Ain’t nothing I’m going to be able to do it about it. Can’t nobody stop it but him. I’ve already had the conversation, I’ve already made my peace with it. ‘Cause I know that energy—I was that energy. I know exactly how it’s gonna turn out.”

He continued, “King’s a good kid. He’s chasing after the wrong shit and I trust in God to deal with it the way he see fit. … Now, he going have to go through it and get through it.”

In another video from King, it looks like a girl who was with him in a vehicle received a violation for not using a seatbelt, and King said he “got four.” In a separate video, King seemingly addressed the situation saying, “Everybody that’s say n***a tryna be gangsta. I ain’t ask for the police to pull me over, y’all bitch ass n***a.” 

The arrest follows King’s recent altercation with a Waffle House employee back in late May, where he reportedly argued with an employee after they allegedly messed up his order by including pickles in his food.
