T.I just dropped a new video for “I Believe,” the intro track of his Us Or Else: A Letter To The System album. The cinematic video stars T.I in multiple roles, opening with one of his characters witnessing another black life lost in a police shooting. The video’s strongest moment comes during the first verse, where TIP faces off against a preacher version of himself, engaging in a heated discourse that brings a new, back and forth perspective to the verse that wasn’t necessarily evident on the album version. “I Believe” continues with sociopolitical imagery, culminating in a tense standoff between Black Lives Matter and riot police. Insert Pepsi joke here.
