T.I. and Meek Mill bring back the dead in visuals to ‘Jefe’

T.I. finally seems ready to release his most anticipated body of work – his album “Dime Trap”. The Atlanta rapper has been discussing the release of “DimeTrap” since 2015 and while he has still been putting out several mixtapes and has collaborated on various projects with different artists, the demand for an album release has been growing every year. Earlier this week, Epic Records announced the signing of the trap rap pioneer so it seems “Dime Trap” might be coming out sooner than we thought. In anticipation of it, T.I. released two featured tracks – “Wraith” featuring Yo Gotti and a Meek Mill collaboration called “Jefe”.

The cinematic visuals for “Jefe” were shot by Nathan R. Smith who captures T.I. and Meek Mill in the middle of a Day Of The Dead celebration that took a wrong turn. Following a violent shootout, victims seem to be ressurecting as the two rappers arrive to bring the party back to life. The two absolutely murder the Bangladesh produced, mariachi inspired beat, mixing English with Spanish in some of their punchlines, relating more to the video’s scenario.

T.I. and Meek Mill are two heavyweights in the industry, having collaborated before on “Black Man” featuring Quavo and Rara. The song is featured on T.I.’s 2016 EP “Us or Else” which came as a reaction to “the repeated deaths of unarmed black citizens at the hands of police.”

The two artists have been setting levels recently not just through music but also with their involvement in changing how things work in their community. Realising they could use their platform to help and motivate others, T.I. has been actively involved in USA’s politics, sharing his most honest opinion over Trump’s current presidency and fighting for the rights of the black community while Meek Mill has been working on changing the current justice system in America. The Philadelphia rapper has also been in the spotlight for recently squashing a three years beef he had with fellow artist Drake, a moment which fans from both camp sides were ecstatic to see it happen and referred to it as “growth”.

With these first two released projects looking fire, it’s needless to say T.I. has everybody waiting for “Dime Trap”. Meanwhile, make sure you watch the visuals to “Jefe” out now.
