Christmas is next week, and playing “Santa” to a six children is something that T.I. has a lot of experience doing. Mr. Trouble Man stopped by VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live, where he described what Christmas morning is like with a house full of children, his continued work at giving back to those in need, and his family’s holiday tradition.

“Pandemonium,” Tip said when asked to describe the Christmas scene at his house. “There’s not a shortage of trash and empty boxes lying around, I can tell you that much.”

Last week while promoting his forthcoming Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head release—due out tomorrow—the Grand Hustle leader stopped by a Detroit hospital to deliver presents alongside Lions player Ndamukong Suh. “I was fortunate enough to go to the hospital in Detroit,” he said. “He [Suh] and I, and a few others from the radio station out there, we were able to give away some toys to some less fortunate kids in the hospital. I had an awesome time, I enjoyed myself.”

When asked of his favorite holiday, the 31-year-old said he loves it all. “Thanksgiving Christmas, New Years, I love the whole block. Fourth quarter. I love the fourth quarter” And as for holiday traditions, life at the Harris household is pretty simple: “We eat and get drunk.”

Check out the entire interview below, and be sure to tune in for the season finale of  T.I. & Tiny’s Family Hustle tonight on VH1.
