Right after unleashing his new EP Us or Else, T.I. releases yet another politically-charged video for “Black Man” featuring Meek Mill, Quavo, and Rara.
Filmed in black and white, the visual kicks off with Quavo running from cops and continues with Rara in a Malcolm X-inspired pose.
From there, viewers see Meek at a funeral service and then Tip at a Black Lives Matter-inspired rally. As signs go up for justice and freedom, T.I. expresses his frustration with law enforcement.
“Police see I got my hands up,” he raps. “Still wanna kill me, they don’t understand us / They be looking for a reason just to shoot me / And wanna do me how they do us in the movies / Or how they do it out in Baton Rouge / Or Ferguson, or Florida, or Baltimore, they make excuses.”
