There may be no music video for 'Swing Ya Rag' as T.I. decided to not release the video due to Gucci and Louis Vuitton's protests and reportedly not shoot a new one to replace it.
In an interview, T.I. revealed that he will not debut "Swing Ya Rag" music video after Gucci and Louis Vuitton, two companies mentioned in the song's lyrics, are not happy that they may be full-on visuals for the record. According to MTV, the "Live Your Live" singer also said that he has no intention to film another video to replace the pulled-out one.
"We spoke to them. The video, it's done. But I guess it's one of those corporate things where they don't wanna be associated or affiliated with a certain type of brand," T.I. said in a statement. "A T.I. video ain't the best look in their eyes right now. No harsh feelings."
"At the end of the day, it's gonna be a time when somebody is gonna have to sit at my table, and we gonna have the same type of conversations," T.I. shared his thought further. "It might be something as simple as just a party or endorsement. One thing is, the world goes around and comes back. I can take it when it's my turn."
T.I. shot the "Swing Ya Rag" video many weeks ago, around the same time he made "What Up, What's Haapnin'" music video. In filming it, he set rapper Swizz Beatz to make a cameo appearance.
