T.I. Featuring Justin Timberlake 'Dead and Gone' Free Music Video


Since he exploded onto the music scene in 2001, T.I. has become a firm favourite with pop, R&B and hip-hop fans alike. Although incredibly successful in his own right – he has had nine top 100 songs in America and six successful studio albums – T.I. is best known for his collaborations with popular young artists such as Rihanna, Destiny's Child, Britney Spears, and his friend Justin Timberlake. Having produced numerous songs together and worked on other musicians' tracks, they seem to have become an unstoppable duo, creating massive successes with all of their projects.

 

Justin Timberlake started as a run-of-the-mill boy band member, he has been catapulted to fame through his solo success and cooperation with Timbaland and T.I. Having found success together with the smash hit 'My Love', T.I. and Justin Timberlake are back together again with the massive chart-topper 'Dead and Gone'. Unlike 'My Love', their new collaboration is more T.I.'s work and although it still has the funky beat and sexy tones of Justin singing the chorus, 'Dead and Gone' is a more serious and sombre offering. 'Dead and Gone' has been released as the fourth and final single off T.I.'s sixth studio album 'Paper Trail' and, like much of the album, was inspired by T.I.'s own personal life.

The title of the album refers to T.I.'s new song-writing technique of writing lyrics and ideas down to get a more concise and ordered feel to his rapping. The song and the album were written as T.I. awaited trial for federal weapon charges and possession, and he says the album reflects much of the "fear, anger and guilt" he felt at that time. Although a lot of the songs are still fairly up-tempo, T.I. unveils a new maturity and consideration not seen in his early work, as he faces a year in jail.

The collaboration with Justin Timberlake is very personal to T.I. as it is a very contemplative track. In 2006 his best friend was murdered in a shooting after one of T.I.'s concerts in Cincinnati and the song captures some of the regret that he feels. Instead of the upbeat party track that many R&B fans are used to the song is more heartfelt and serious; even so it is still a fantastic tune. The video reflects the mood of the song and in particular T.I.'s new-found maturity and is precluded by a Bible verse which talks about growing up and moving on. In the video Justin and T.I. perform in a bleak rural area but use a lot of religious imagery to show T.I.'s belief in God's work. This is contrasted with images of T.I.'s past life of crime and violence as he thinks about his new path.
