Video Premiere: T.I. Featuring Sk8brd, “Here Ye, Hear Ye”

On tonight’s episode of T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle, Tip and Tiny spend some quality time with T-Swizzle (aka Taylor Swift) at the Atlanta stop of her Speak Now tour, which culminates in the two duetting on a killer version of “Live Your Life.” Well, that isn’t T.I.’s only duet of the night; we’re excited to be premiering the video for “Here Ye, Hear Ye,” which T.I. cut with Sk8brd (who is also known as Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes).

“Here Ye, Hear Ye” was one of the first songs that Tip recorded after he got sprung from the Big House back in October, and it’s a real window into T.I.’s state of mind during the 11 months that he spent incarcerated in the federal prison system (“Still baffled how my life unraveled / In the meantime time just traveled.”) As for how it came together, Pharrell told Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex back in October that “My man came home and I just sent him something. And he got to it. You know what it is? He just got home. He’s in training. He’s getting ready. These are pull-ups, push-ups for Tip.”
