The highly anticipated Official Video for “In The A” off the Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors album. Big Boi, Ludacris, & T.I. all got together and put on for the city in a few different locations. The concept of the video is rather simple. Just footage of the city, with a couple of variations of performance scenes. But, for a fan of all 3 artists this video is much more than that. It is like a family reunion. Let us know what you thought in the comment section below.
We had the opportunity to sit in with DJ Drama, and Young Jeezy as they shot their takes of the “We In This Bitch” video. We posted the BTS video yesterday, now here is the official photo recap from our photographer Jason McCullough at Soul Assassin Media. Hit the jump for the Full photo recap.
TIP told us this was coming yesterday during his interview with Billboard. The song, Pyro, is produced by Two Band Geeks and is said to be on his upcoming album, Trouble Man. I’m sticking with I’m Flexin’. Not that this is that bad, it just doesn’t do what it should with such an explosive name. It is nice to have T.I. back in the booth though.

TIP stopped by one of his favorite females, Chelsea Lately’s spot, and laughed and cracked jokes while she carried the interview (her words, not mine). They do speak on his book Power & Beauty, prison life, the “Diddy Incident ” and more. Chelsea loves her some rappers, as Cliff notes to her last name now being “Cent!” Ha!
TIP was up at the king of all media’s house today and in this brief clip he describes an altercation with a fellow inmate that went down inside the prison. Which means know one really knows if it’s true or not.
So, last night at The Compound in Atlanta, Georga, Diddy was in the building and was acting very immature. He was calling out people for NOT drinking his vodka, Ciroc. In the two videos Diddy is seen cursing at non-Ciroc drinkers one of which just happens to be an ambassador for Grey Goose Kenny Burns. You can see T.I. calling for the mic after he realizes this is about to be some bafoonery. Once TIP gets the mic he checks Diddy, and tells him to let people drink whatever the fuck they want to. Shouts out to T.I. for checking this idiot and shutting it down before it got ugly. Hit the jump for more footage.
As The King of The South nears the end of his “vacation” he gives us a final letter before his release in September. As a true fan of T.I. I have kept his music in rotation while he was away. Read what he wrote to all his fans below.
What up world? This will be my last message from Forrest City. Just reaching out and sending my love, respect and appreciation to all who have been ridin’ with me throughout this chapter in my life and not just recently but since all the things started happening one after another back in ’06. From Big Phil’s murder to my beautiful little angel Leiah being called home to heaven, to my arrest in ’07, the 1st prison sentence in ’09, to this last journey that I’m nearing the end of. A lot of people who are aware of all that has happened to me in my life say that there aren’t many men who could have endured and withstood so much pain, pressure and turmoil while managing to remain sane and keep their wits about them. I must say that I wouldn’t have been able to do so without God’s grace and having a strong support system behind me every step of the way. So often we spend time acknowledging the presence of “haters” and all the negativity they send our way but we don’t take the time to acknowledge and appreciate all the ones who love and support us and supply us with the positive energy we need to overcome. We complain about the pain so much that we don’t even notice how much stronger, wiser and better of a person the suffering has allowed us to become. I heard Pac say once “To live is to suffer and to survive is to find meaning in that suffering.” I later found out it came from an author by the name of Friedrich Nietzsche. When I heard Pac say that it was just some hard shit to hear your favorite rapper say before he kicked a verse. Now that I’ve gone through it and grown from it those words have a real true meaning to me. I know this won’t be my last battle with adversity but it has truly prepared me for whatever else may come in the future. For that also I’m thankful. Now it goes without saying that I hate I had to come back to prison for these 10 months but I am truly grateful for the knowledge, growth and understanding I’ve received from the experience.
Next time you hear from me I’ll be back out there with you. Doing for those who can’t do for themselves and speaking for those whose voices are never heard. When I touch down, I’m going all the way back to square one, like I’m fresh in the game and never sold a record. Back on some I’M SERIOUS, TRAP MUZIK shit… But until then RESPECT to all who deserve it. I’ll be back at you in a minute.
So, in just a few weeks Atlanta, Forrest City will FREE THE KING!
