Art imitates life for T.I.

In the new music video for "Dead and Gone," a song featuring Justin Timberlake off T.I.'s Paper Trail album, the pop superstars find themselves rethinking the gangsta life. Hey, that's good (if late) advice guys: T.I. begins a year-long prison sentence in March for gun offenses.

"You could mess around / Get shot, die any day," T.I. raps while driving a vintage muscle car through a desert landscape reminiscent of the final scene from the movie Se7en, as images of tough-looking thugs, wheelchairs, and bloody bandages flash by.
