T.I. returned to his old stomping grounds in Atlanta’s Bankhead to shoot the video for his street single “I’m Flexin’.” Tip, who’s been keeping super busy since his release from prison, cruised down Cedar Ave. in a candy red Chevrolet Chevelle. The track’s producer and guest star Big K.R.I.T. filmed his scenes the day before and Deon Grant of the New York Giants paid a visit to the set.
The King of the South is determined to put his hometown back on the map.
“I ain’t seen much Atlanta lately. I took direct offense at that,” he told V103. “Right now I’m putting the city on my shoulders. It’s too heavy of a load for Ross and Drake and Wayne to be the only ones who represent hip-hop.”
T.I. will continue his press tour to promote his first novel Power & Beauty with a trip to L.A. next week.
