In preparation for his upcoming album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head (released 18 December), T.I. has been offering up a new musical treat each week in the form of “Trouble Man Tuesdays” and now drops this short film for “Trap Back Jumpin.”
The ten minute video, directed by Clifton Bell, shows the Southern rapper back in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia and documents a day in the life of a hustler. From ‘cooking’ with his crew, to shooting a possible enemy, T.I. enables fans to visualise what he is talking about in the hard hitting street anthem and also brings a level of seriousness to his lyrics.
Building up to the track, T.I. discusses his childhood and how much potential he’d had as a youngster. The film then draws to a close with the ATL native asserting that he is living the life that so many men claim to be living, but often aren’t. “This is that life”, he says as we are left in suspense and the words “To Be Continued” flash across the screen.
