In T.I.’s new video for “Go Get It” we see how much things have changed for Tip, who shows what life was like pre and post fame.
The Alex Nazari-video starts with T.I. begrudgingly waking up to the sound of his ceiling fan in his regular bedroom. The scene juxtaposes with him rolling over in a king sized bed with three ladies in lingerie. Basically, pre-fame T.I. swam in community pools and drove rundown cars. Post-fame T.I. swims in his massive outdoor pool and drives a beautiful, sleek ride.
The song is from his forthcoming album Trouble Man.
T.I. dropped a new uptempo rap banger called “Like That” in which he raps about how his fans want reckless, non-sensical rap these days. He also talks about the expectations placed upon him: ”They want that super gutter ignorant/ That new ghetto belligerent/ Authentic grip flippin’, dope boy trap.”
The Lil C and Mars-produced track is from his upcoming album Trouble Man, which should be out this summer. It’s been a while since he’s had a really legit hit single so it’ll be interesting to see if he can pick himself up again. Do you think this is the track to do it?
Listen to it here:
T.I released the first official single from his eighth studio album Trouble Man, which comes out today.
Although he’s had his share of public battles (and multiple trips to prison) he wants his lady to know that the good outweighs the bad: ”You know you love this life, don’t nobody do you like me,” he says.
But T.I. doesn’t forget about showering his special someone with expensive designer dresses and sleek cars: “Cavalli dress and high heels/ And drop tops on hot wheels/ We live how we wanna live ’cause we got mils/ Dem other belly, belly buy hot wheels/ In V.I.P. dem bottle popping do it B.I.G./ Come get with T.I.P. and be balling til you D.I.E.”
The Mars-produced track is just a taste of what to expect. What do you think of it? [Source]
