T.I. & Teyana Taylor’s ‘You (Be There)’ Video
Under the direction of co-star Teyana Taylor, Atlanta rapper T.I. (real name Clifford Harris), releases a dramatic short film on Tuesday (Sept. 17th). In the video, the ride or die duo take action by seeking revenge upon evildoers in their violent, dual video for “You (Be There).” The short film features the final two tracks from T.I.’s latest album, ‘Dime Trap.’
The visual opens with T.I. and Taylor relaxing in bed, watching the news report on a rapist on the run. T.I. sets the tone of the story saying,
“There’s some people on the Earth that just don’t need to be here. Some people just deserve to die.”
The duo puts their words to action by strutting into a near-by church and going out with a bang, literally.
Afterwards, the couple hits the road checking into a motel room where they overhear a sexual assault happening in the next room.
After intervening, the motel room was filled with drug paraphernalia including a spoon and needle.
While confronting the police officer responsible for the assault, Taylor gets caught up between the chaos leaving T.I. to carry on by himself.
The video ends with a powerful message about sexual abuse and child sex trafficking in Atlanta, which has one of the highest incident rates in America. It reads,
“3,600 minors are sold into sex slavery every year in the state of Georgia.”
