Last year, T.I. proclaimed that the trap was back on his Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head LP, and it appears that Paperwork: The Motion Picture will also echo those sentiments to an extent. The lead single “Turn It” premiered earlier this week, and today Hustle Gang’s head honcho returns with a proper visual treatment.
To match the furor of DJ Toomp’s knocking production, the rapper flexes his “Kang” status in his hometown of Atlanta from atop of a helipad. Other scenes are a lot gloomier, as T.I.P. spits street savvy lines as flames engulf the background.
The PhillyFlyBoy-directed clip doesn’t go without cameo appearances from longtime T.I. affiliates like Big Kuntry King and a proper lyrical homage to fallen Hustle Gang member Doe B.
Paperwork is executive produced by Pharrell. Look for that album to release some time this year. Enjoy the “Turn It” video below in the meantime.
