King Harris Didn’t Know Will Smith Was A Rapper Or That Tupac Acted, Shocking Dad T.I.

Days after going viral over a family dispute, T.I. and King Harris appear on Complex’Goat Talk series, where a 19-year-old Harris admits to not knowing Tupac Shakur was an actor before his 1996 death. He was also unaware that Will Smith was once a rapper known as The Fresh Prince, leading father Tip to hang his head in Hip-Hop embarrassment.

When asked about the GOAT rapper-turned-actor, T.I. reveals Tupac as his pick, leading King to ask, “Tupac was an actor?”

“Man, get out. Get OUT!” Tip responds, pointing at the door in disbelief. Harris adds that he thought a Tupac “lookalike” starred in films such as Juice, adding that he’s never even seen Poetic Justice.

“That’s your generation,” he told his dad before naming Ice Cube as his GOAT rapper-turned-actor. “I rock with Cube. Cube the OG,” Tip said in agreement before bringing up Smith.

“Will Smith. Can’t forget Will,” Tip added, leading King to ask, “He a rapper?”

“Oh my god!” T.I. responds, with King adding, “Bruh, I don’t know no Will Smith songs! That’s like asking me ‘what’s a Nick Cannon song?’”

“No it’s not! Nick Cannon has no hits!” Tip replied, going on to inform his son of Smith as The Fresh Prince winning the first Hip-Hop Grammy. Harris then asked why is “none of his music out now?” before jokingly adding, “I feel like ya’ll about to tell me Denzel Washington is a rapper.”

The light-hearted conversation comes days after the father and son tussled over comments regarding King’s upbringing, with Tip and wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris claiming he had a “silver spoon” childhood, which King vehemently denied.

“Do y’all wanna go to the bando in my neighborhood,” King asked before accusing T.I. of lying. “To make him look better, he say sh*t that he know not true. Silver spoon? I ain’t never ate with that a day in my life….They ain’t gonna tell you everything. They trying to hide it, sugarcoat it. He capping. He know I stand on business, he know that. Ain’t no n*gga ever pull my card ever in life, I stand on business.”

The argument resulted in Tip putting his son in a headlock while telling King, “You are embarrassing yourself and your family! Boy, you can’t do nothing with me! Ain’t sh*t you can do with me!” before the clip ends.
