‘They Got the Same Face!’: T.I. Staggers Fans After Twinning with His Eldest Son

The resemblance between rapper T.I. and his eldest son Messiah Harris is simply uncanny!

It’s safe to say the majority of T.I.’s children take after his “good looks,” but fans never realized how much his 19-year-old son looked like him until this week.

The “You Don’t Know Me” rapper took to his Instagram feed Wednesday evening and posted an image of himself and Messiah at the Hope Global Forum Conference on Wednesday afternoon in Atlanta, Ga. He, along with Alphonzo Cross, Ryan Wilson, John Hope Bryant, and a few others were invited to the event to give their insight on entrepreneurship, ownership and business.

T.I.’s photo captured himself seemingly in deep thought and his son parallel to him on the red carpet. He added in his caption: “Longevity. Lineage. Legacy.”

Fans immediately pointed out Messiah’s similar facial features to his father’s and were blown away by how much they favored.

“Up until this picture I never thought they looked alike. But that’s def TIs face on Messiah 😲.”

“They got the same damnnn face!!!!! doppelgangers.”

“Messiah is your twin! ‘Like father like son.'”

“The fact that T.I.’s face is in this pic twice. Looking like a set of twins 🔥❤️.”

“That’s yo twin rt there… He gone run the business 💯.”

Speaking of business, T.I. has been making it his priority to carry on the work of late rapper and entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle, as the two hip-hop moguls apparently had a tight-knit bond.

T.I. went to Washington last week and met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus to discuss incentive investment in low-income communities. The Atlanta native said he’s just as interested in helping impoverished areas in Atlanta as Hussle was doing in South Central.

Hussle reportedly had been scheduled to appear at the meeting weeks before he was shot to death in March, and apparently had invited T.I. to join him.
