T.I. Gets Pulled Into Life of Crime in ‘King’ Video

T.I., King, video, gunfight

T.I. is a significantly better musician than he is an actor, but that didn’t stop the Paperwork rapper from interrupting his “King” video halfway through to tell a self-aggrandizing crime story. The track’s visuals star T.I. as himself, sort of?

The Atlanta native plays a criminal-turned-celebrity who “got out of the game” a while ago, but he’s drawn back in by a former underworld associate. When the two meet at a dingy bar and T.I.’s old boss threatens him, the rapper goes into the bathroom, gets a gun he hid there, and violently kills everybody. Watch above.
