T.I. + Pharrell Williams Show Off Their Kingly Status in ‘Here Ye, Here Ye’ Video
All hail, the King is back! Rapper T.I. drops his new video for ‘Here Ye, Here Ye,’ the latest single from his upcoming album ‘Trouble Man.’ Tip teams up with Pharrell Williams (aka Sk8brd) for a simple performance clip of the trumpet-driven track.
In the video, Sk8brd, wearing a military cap, red jacket and Timberland boots, gets his shine on rapping a few bars before he introduces the self-proclaimed “King of the South.”
The clip pretty much belongs to T.I. as he raps poignant lyrics about the death of his dear friend Philant Johnson who was shot and killed in 2006. “Since Phil got killed I ain’t never moved on / Like I’m still in the club where the blows got thrown / When my crown fell down and I got dethroned / Bunch of n—-s around but I feel all alone / Like a piece of me is missing, guess it never came home,” he rhymes.
T.I.’s son D-Money, Young Jeezy and B.o.B make cameos in the video as they mean-mug in front of the camera. Tip’s ‘Hear Ye, Hear Ye,’ should help build a huge buzz for his eighth studio effort ‘Trouble Man,’ due out in 2012.
