T.I. admits he has to bribe his son to take part in his TV show.
The 33-year-old rapper confessed his wife, former Xscape member Tameka ''Tiny'' Cottle, has to persuade their six-year-old son Major to take part in 'T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle', by plying him with gifts.
When asked about the boy's reluctance to feature on their VH1 reality TV show, T.I. told US chat-show 'The View': ''Major! He doesn't really like 'celebrity-ism'. He don't take pictures often, he just wants his video games.
''They take him to Wal-Mart and GameStop.''
The father-of-six went on to talk about his parenting techniques on the chat show, disclosing that while he is generally laid back with his children, there are some things which he is very strict about.
He added: ''I'm the cool dad about some things; I'm lenient about some things.''
However, the 'Live Your Life' hitmaker confessed to being stern with his youngsters on issues linked to ''school and respect''.
T.I.'s reality TV show is currently in its fourth season and follows the life of the hip hop artist, his wife and their family.
