Watch T.I.’s Lil Wayne-assisted “Ball” video.
It seems like we’ve been waiting forever to hear T.I.‘s forthcoming Trouble Man disc (it’s officially out Dec. 18, FYI!), but thankfully, we’ve got some new tuneage to check out while we wait. We’ve already heard “Go Get It,” the nostalgic ”Trap Back Jumpin’,” and now we’re psyched to watch the video for T.I.’s Lil Wayne-assisted “Ball.”
Watch T.I.’s ‘Ball’ Video Featuring Lil Wayne after the jump.
Shot in Lil Wayne’s hometown of New Orleans, the “Ball” video features cameos from Birdman, Mack Maine, Trae Tha Truth, the song’s producer Rico Love, and well, the most fun looking block party you’ve ever seen in your life. T.I. and Wayne get it poppin’ as they throw a street-side rager rife with some delicious looking BBQ, cold bevvies, and sick tunes. It seems like the entire neighborhood comes out to chill, and as night falls, Tip and Weezy take things indoors for a nighttime style house party full of, how shall we say, bumpin’ and grindin’. There’s also a surplus of cold beverages that miiiiight make you forget exactly what you did last night. Weezy and Tip then make their way over to the skate park, which they proceed to light on fire, as one does. (And that totally coincides with our earlier theory that lighting stuff on fire has become a serious music video trend.) The clip closes with a shot of the trashed party house, which in our opinion is in dire need of an industrial cleaning crew. You and I both know a Swiffer and a regular old mop just ain’t gonna cut it.
