We are getting word that rapper T.I. recently made his first public appearance since being released from prison. While currently holding residence in a half-way house, the rapper showed some love to his longtime girlfriend Tiny by making a surprise appearance at her and Toya‘s “For The Love of Our Fathers” fundraiser for Alzheimer’s research. Tiny’s father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a few years back.

Several sources have reported that T.I. (who wasn’t allowed to take ANY pictures) took to the stage to show his support for the fundraiser, which included performances by classic R&B group The Tams (which includes Tiny’s father Charles Pope, and was led by her brother Little Redd); newcomers The OMG Girlz (which includes the daughters of both Tiny and Toya), QT Jazz and Lil Shun and New Nu (from T.I.’s Grand Hustle label); as well as established R&B singers Kandi, Jaheim and Pleasure P.

“I am very well, very happy to be seen,” is what T.I. had to say as he accompanied Tameka “Tiny” Cottle on stage at the “For The Love Of Our Fathers” fundraiser for Alzheimer research.

Along with making the appearance, Tip surprised Tiny with a brand new blue Porsche Panamera, which was parked right in front of the venue with a big red bow. Clearly, T.I. wanted to show how much he loves and supports his boo!
