T.I. On Scrapped “Swagga Like Us” Video

In the latest RESPECT mag cover story, Clifford chops it up with Datwon Thomas and reveals the concept behind the all-star video that never was. Damn shame! Issue’s on newsstands now. Gon’ get you some!

Are you ever inspired by movies?

For videos, we are at times greatly inspired by them. Actually, we had an idea and concept for “Swagga Like Us,” and it was taken from Reservoir Dogs. Schedules conflicted and we weren’t able to make that happen before my sit down, but I think that would have been an iconic moment.

    In order of best verses
    T.I.>Kanye>Jay-Z>Lil Wayne

    Jay-Z’s verses these days are so average…How many times does Kanye have to kill him before other people besides myself realize it too…*Goes back to listening to The Blueprint…yeah the first Blueprint*

    What the HELL ever happened to Swagga Like Us 2??? I know B.dot reads the comments, so B.dot tell YN to tell Ye, instead of ruining his album by dropping songs from it each friday before release, make some of those Good Fridays unreleased Hov shit like SLU II, or “She’s Like That all the time”

  • Belize

    That song really did suck. T.I. and Kanye were good. The hook was annoying. Jay-Z was dissappointing. And as usual, Gayne sucked ass. *kanye shrug*

  • H84NOREASON

    @ Bleeze

    His Swag is definitely influenced from that East Point Hit Man (Yep I bought the single for “Watch 4 the Hook!!!), but T.I.’s actual flow is 2nd best in ATLANTA…

    #1 is Andre 3000.

  • nikkidc

    Jay Z Has That Same Look On His Face As When Lil Mamma Came Up On Stage. TI Better Stop That Damn Saluting. Monkey See Monkey Do

    @ Bleeze

    Smh @ T.I. not remembering that vid. Especially considering Cool Breeze was the 1st rapper on wax to refer to the hood as the “trap”.

    Anyway,that swagga song was nothing special to me. I actually forgot about it.
