Just two days after returning to jail, T.I. debuts a music video for "Get Back Up", his new single from upcoming album "No Mercy", to keep him visible on the screen. The incarcerated rapper raps to the camera alongside Chris Brown with footage of random people on display.
"No Mercy" will arrive in stores across United States on December 7. He said, "This album represents some of my best work inspired by my most recent best and worst life experiences. They say adversity brings forth inspiration so y'all can imagine how inspired I've been during the recording process for this album."
Seemingly referring to criticisms and some negative publicities following his recent legal woes, the Atlanta MC stated, "I've been taking stock of myself and digesting eveyone's comments and criticisms. Now it's my turn to express myself and take you into my mind. The real won't hate and the truth won't wait! If God is with me who can be against me."
"Get Back Up" itself is an ode to his mistake. The lyrics read, "I'm only human, y'all/ I admit, yeah I've done some dumb sh**/ Disappointed everybody, I know/ Try not to hold that against me though, My road to redemption has no GPS/ So guess time must be invested for this to be manifested/ Yes, it's hard living life in the spotlight/ Trying to dodge the haters the same time as the cop light."
Beside having Chris Brown on the remorseful tune, the album will feature guest appearances from Kanye West, Eminem, The-Dream and Christina Aguilera with production from top producers like Dr. Luke, Danja and Jim Jonsin.
The album was originally titled "King Uncaged" which was later changed because it's no longer relevant since he is now imprisoned again. "For those of you who already pre-ordered a King Uncaged package," it was explained. "You should have received an email regarding your original order setting out the contents of the new, replacement No Mercy package that you will be receiving and instructions on how to cancel your order if you wish to do so."
