    T.I. Explains "Go Get It" Video
    Posted by      

    In a recent interview with SOHH, Tip discussed the meaning behind his new video for "Go Get It". Check out what he had to say:

    For "Go Get It," we really went with a "Then & Now" type of concept because a lot of the activites are the same, it's just the surrounding and my position in the business is different.

    I think that's true for me probably more so than a lot of other people in my position or my level of success. I still kick it with the same cats for the most part, I eat a lot of the same food, my activities and pasttimes are very much the same.

    It's just different clothes, different cars and different houses and hanging out at different states. I think for us to capture that was key. That's what adds to the authenticity of it.

    It wasn't my intent for us to approach it as a T.I. vs. T.I.P. type of video. It was just showing me then and me now. It's the past and then the present. That was really the truth behind it.

    It was about waking up back when I was trapping and living that life back in the day when I recorded I'm Serious, "Dope Boyz," and it's showing you how I was getting it and how I'm getting it right now.

    The video is showing you how similar [those lifestyles are] but how different they are at the same time.

    In case you missed it, check out the video below!
