Tip and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle hosted a luncheon for their foundation “For the Love of Our Fathers,” which raises money for disease research and offers relief to caregivers. Tiny’s father has the disease and T.I. said his father and grandmother also had the disease when they passed.
“It’s very, very personally close to our family,” Tip told the AP. “And while I was, you know, while I was going through my … period of hiatus, Tameka had the idea of … starting this foundation. And I thought it was an outstanding idea.”
