King and Domani Harris, the sons of T.I., have collaborated on a new song titled “Father Like Sons,” which demonstrates how the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

The brothers honored their father and how he has influenced them.

The record, Father Like Sons by the brotherly duo was released on November 29th through Complex Premiere, but it became available on streaming services on Friday, December 1st.

Hip-hop’s longevity can be attributed, in large part, to the genre’s lineages and the first person to step up to the plate in T.I.’s camp is King Harris, formerly known as Kid Saiyan.

Additionally, the 19-year-old rapped, “This sh*t just runs in the family; I ain’t cappin’ ni**a/I got that side of my pops; I ain’t actin’ ni**a” in the first verse. Domani, his 22-year-old brother, picks up the slack next. “I just can’t ignore how much I look like my dad anymore. To what extent do you want more? I call it breathing, they call it rap, and I’m getting a lot more done.”

In a statement to Complex, King said, “‘Father Like Sons’ describes my life off of the camera and the fact that I am independent. I genuinely share who I am on this record; this is how I was raised; I got it from my parents. I was the only student in public school, smaller than everyone else, and my brothers were attending separate schools from their mother’s house.”

T.I.’s son also mentioned how T.I. brought him up to be independent and not to step into other people’s messes.

“That’s who I am, no matter where I’m from or what my background is,” he declared. “I’m standing on my ten That’s how I was trained! I stand on business even though I’m not a gangsta, a thug, or the toughest person around! I don’t need to act in any particular way. Ultimately, it’s within me, not outside of me. You already know if you know me”.

King and his father recently made headlines for a fight about the former’s childhood.

When T.I. put his son in a headlock, the argument turned physical. King responded to the altercation on social media, writing: “If ima mistake says dat, stop making da world think u fw me when u don’t.” N-GGA is fabricating an online persona. It’s not me.”

Nevertheless, cooler heads prevailed, and the father-son duo managed to reconcile and continue their relationship.

T.I. posted on Instagram, “Fck what the internet is talkin’ about… Da Family Tied Like a Knot.” “We All Have Four Lives… I will ride to the moon and back regarding my junior, and nothing will make that stop.”
