TameKA “Tiny” Harris, born on July 14, 1975 in College Park, Georgia, is an American singer and songwriter. She is most famous for being a member of the popular female R&B group, Xscape. Her parents were Charles Pope and Cottle Pope. She developed an interest in music from a young age, singing many pop songs and attracting the attention of her school friends. She is nicknamed 'Tiny' due to her small stature of 4 feet and 11 inches.
Tiny began dating T.I., a famous rapper, and they fell madly in love. They got married on July 30, 2010, in Miami Beach, Florida. Together, they have two sons: Clifford “King” Joseph Harris, born on August 25, 2004, and Major Philant Harris, born on May 16, 2008. The couple also has a daughter named Lelah Amore Harris.
Before dating T.I., Tiny was in a relationship with Zonnie. They have a daughter together named Zonnique Pullins, who was born on March 20, 1996. After a six-year marriage with rapper T.I., Tameka filed for divorce, stating that their reality TV show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, had harmed their relationship. Creating a balance between their entertainment life and family commitments had proven challenging.
Following the divorce, Tameka and her ex had frequent disagreements over co-parenting. Tameka claimed that the conflicts stemmed from the way they spent time caring for their 15-month-old daughter. Tameka also confessed that co-parenting hasn't been too bad, especially now that the divorce allows her more time with her seven children.
Essence asked Tiny about her feelings when T.I. expressed his happiness over their divorce, labeling their marriage a distraction. "I had to...like, how could he just...say, a distraction?" she responded. "He doesn't even understand the backlash his comments have caused. He can't comprehend what he said that wasn't right. 'I don't get it,' he says. 'I didn't say anything bad about you.' To me, that's just nonsensical and a cop-out. You're too old for that. A distraction? We've been married for seven years, and we've been in this relationship for 15 years. How could you say that?"
Tiny admits she still doesn't understand what he was trying to convey. "I don't see much of a difference from when we weren't married. What changed so much?" she pondered. When Tameka attended the 2017 BET Awards, looking stunning, she was trying to show her ex-husband what he had lost. Her appearance on BET was due to a reunion performance with her Xscape girl group. Before the girls' epic performance, they showcased their alluring ensembles as they walked the red carpet.
Tiny Harris attended Tri-Cities Performing Arts High School and simultaneously joined the R&B group, Xscape, formed by her father and uncle. Xscape offered her a national platform, gaining recognition while performing at a Martin Luther King Jr. benefit in Atlanta. A prominent producer, Jermaine Dupri, impressed by her performance, signed Harris along with her group on the spot.
Harris subsequently recorded three albums with the band: Traces of My Lipstick, Off the Hook, and Hummin' Comin' at 'Cha. Her career soared when she became the lead vocalist for five of Xscape's songs: Do You Want To, Love’s a Funny Thing, All I Need, Love I Dreamin, and Understanding.
In 2005, Xscape released an album titled Unchained “What’s Up”. Additionally, the group recorded songs for film soundtracks including Soul Food, Love Jones, and Panther.
Later in her career, Harris embarked on a solo journey, releasing a song titled “What the Fuk You Gon Do,” which ascended to the number 5 position on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts.
Instead of competing with other R&B female groups, Harris chose to assist them. She contributed to TLC by co-writing the number one hit, No Scrubs, earning her a Grammy Award for her songwriting. She also received an award from the American Society of Composer Authors and Publishers. Over the years, she collaborated with artists like Lil’ Kim, Bow Wow, T.I, and 8Ball & MJG.
Harris made her TV debut on the BET reality series, Tiny and Toya, in June 2009. She currently manages her eldest daughter and approaches this role with utmost seriousness. Consequently, Harris has committed herself to mastering the entertainment business. For her, participating in her daughter’s career is vital and a significant part of her own life progression.
