Wowwww… T.I. went full ‘Red Table Talk’ on this episode. Brought the spouse (Tiny) on, like Jada did with hubby Will Smith, to sip and spill all kinds of marital/relationship tea. I will admit to being a bit nervous when I hit play.

Tip welcomes his matrimonial life partner, Tameka “Tiny” Harris into the #expediTIously studio for a “private,” refreshingly honest conversation on getting through life as a team.

VICE: The Japanese Love Industry (Video)

Ryan Duffy, VICE

VIBE found an answer… Less focus on family, and more focus on buying, has left Japan a nation that is dying.

‘Japan is a country that is dying—literally. Japan has more people over the age of 65 and the smallest number of people under the age of 15 in the world. It has the fastest negative population growth in the world, and that’s because hardly anyone is having babies.
