The actor in rapper T.I. gets unleashed anew in the new music video for his collaboration track with Cee-Lo Green entitled "Hello". It's a talent he showed off not only in the movies "Identity Thief" and "Takers" but also in the short film he dropped last March as the music video for his track "Addresses" off album "Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head".
The newly-released Marc Klasfeld-clip begins with the 32-year-old Grand Hustle mogul waking up on a dirt-side road as his own voice-over plays out in the background. As he comes to his senses all dusty and dirty with just his hat and a briefcase, he looks around as he tries to recall how he got himself in the situation he finds himself in.
He flashes back to the point where a face-painted kid gets him into a car that cruises along before being hijacked by a sexy lady into going into a saloon to forget about his worries. The cinematic treatment is quite different from the laidback "Hello" lyric video released a couple of weeks ago but fans of the rapper/actor will surely not reject any new opportunity to see their favorite artist in his element.
The easy-listening track produced by The Neptunes is a flawless blend of T.I.'s rhythmic verses and Green's retro-soul tone on the hook. In recent episodes of "The Voice", both T.I. and Green appeared as musical guests, with the former performing with fellow featured artist Pharrell Williams on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and the latter dishing out his hit "Only You" with Juliet Simms.
