Total family affair!

The 2019 Bounce Trumpet Awards was held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta over the weekend. And Clifford "T.I." Harris was one of the night's honorees.

Tip was presented with the inaugural Xernona Clayton Award by Trumpet Awards founder and civil rights leader Ms. Clayton herself. The rapper/activist/actor - who looked dapper in a Hideoki Bespoke suit - was recognized for his extensive charitable work and numerous contributions to economic development and job creation within his hometown of Atlanta.

2018 was a year of building for the rapper and his wife Tiny Harris. And they have seemingly gotten back on track after she filed for divorce two years ago. The XSCAPE singer was right by her man's side to show her support on his big night. They also had most of the kids there as well, including Major, King, Heiress, Zonnique, Deyjah, and Messiah. Tip's son, Domani Harris, was MIA for the family night out.

Tip's mom, Violeta Morgan, and Tiny's mom, Dianne Cottle, were in the mix as well.
