The “King’s” sister died on Feb. 22 after being involved in a nasty car wreck. The rapper and his wife decided to celebrate the 66-year-old’s passing with a lively home-going party instead of a traditional repast.
The event was arranged by a family friend, Hannah King, who noted that over 1000 people attended the “service” in Atlanta at venue Revel Midtown on Ellsworth Industrial Blvd. The funeral service was reportedly held at Salem Bible Church.
Tiny shared a video of the event to her Instagram page and explained that she went all out for her sister-in-law’s ceremony, with no expense spared.
“I didn’t play about you when u were living sis & we didn’t play with u taking u out of here,” the singer wrote on March 2. “U went up the strong way @preciousharris1913 u would of been like Whuuuutt!! I’m a superstar! Your home going just showed how special of an individual u are!! Shine on sis!! & throw some of that shine down on me!! Till we meet again…R.I.H 🙏🏽👑.”
Several of the music couple’s celebrity friends were in attendance at the event, including Monica Brown, KeKe Wyatt, Kandi Burruss, Reginae Carter, Toya Wright, Shekinah Davis and many others to pay their respects to Precious.
Tiny and T.I.’s 14-year-old son King Harris also performed at his late aunt’s celebration along with rapper T.I. himself who performed the song “Swag Surfin.”
T.I. added in a separate caption, “I promised to celebrate your Life and damnit that’s EXACTLY WHAT WE DID!!! Thanks to all the family ,friends , and supporters who been lifting us up in prayer and came out to show LOVE for my BIG Sister!!!!”
Harris, 66, died after being involved in a car accident in Atlanta on Feb. 13. A recent police report said she had an asthma attack while driving, lost consciousness and veered into a utility pole. Although she would be rushed to Atlanta’s Grady Hospital, Harris succumbed to her still-unspecified injuries a week later. She left behind three children, Kareem “Plug” Chapman, Kayama Chapman, and Avis Chapman-Reese .
Fans have offered the Harris family their condolences and prayers.
“So sorry for your loss. Praying 🙏🏾 for strength and comfort during this difficult time.”
“I’m praying for y’all family, she is in a better place now ❤️🙏🏽.”
“What a lively Celebration! You guys did that! She would be soo proud praying for the Harris fam ❤️.”
T.I. has shared several posts about his sister since news of her crash first made headlines a few weeks ago, the first on Feb. 18, where he wrote, “I Love You Sis…❤️We can’t thank you enough 🙏🏽#MyBiggestFan.”
And on Monday, the Grand Hustle founder posted a video of his music performance at her homegoing party and wrote, “Yeah Sis we was LIT lit 🔥 #LongLivePreciousHarris.”

This one hurt me. #ripprecious but to see over 1000 people show up to her service. She was loved. I’ve known @preciousharris1913 for 15 years. Her spirit was so young and vibrant so you never thought It would end. My heart and prayer go to her kids @kamayadaplug Kareem and her granddaughter. So @troubleman31 calls me last night at 8pm to set up the repast. I wish i had an extra day to plan but i couldn’t have made this day happen without @whatuptory @mzyramirez @iamjchristopher @porschasinclair @jasthegreat @mshbcu @everybodyknowstroud the amazing band @djmlk @mr430carter and the kind interns.
