In the 'Hell of a Life' music video, T.I. recalls how his life was before he was checked into jail.
It is true that T.I. lives behind the bar right now, but it doesn't stop him from making a music video and releasing it for his fans. Like "Remember Me" video which features Mary J. Blige, this new one which is aimed to support his single "Hell of a Life" also brings out jail theme.
Directed by Erik White, the video shows T.I. in his prison uniform making his way to his cell. Then, it flashbacks to 24 hours earlier when he was still a free man. Sitting on the bed, he watched footage of his glamorous life on TV.
Both "Remember Me" and "Hell of a Life" were supposed to be listed in "Paper Trail: Case Closed", the re-release effort of T.I.'s sixth studio album "Paper Trail". However, a spokesperson from his label, Atlantic Records, told MTV that "the re-release is definitely not happening" and the songs will be put out for digital purchase instead.
