T.I. and Teyana Taylor Team Up in 'You (Be There)' Video

  /  09.17.2019

A year after the release of his Dime Trap album, T.I. debuts the cinematic video for “You (Be There)” featuring Teyana Taylor.

After directing videos for Monica, Lil Durk, ScHoolboy Q, Teyana “Spike Tee” Taylor steps behind and in front of the camera in the nearly 13-minute clip, which doubles as a visual for her T.I. collaboration “You” and the London Jae-assisted “Be There,” two tracks off Dime Trap.

The rapper and R&B singer play a couple of armed vigilantes who are out to fight evil and save their community from sexual predators including a pastor who preys on children. They take matters into their own hands, bursting into the church and shooting the preacher in the head in front of his congregation. They then free a group of women who are being held against their will and gun down a corrupt cop.

In between fighting bad guys, they reflect on their romantic relationship, which goes back to childhood. During their violent encounter with the cop, Teyana gets shot and dies in front of Tip’s eyes. The video ends with a powerful message about sexual abuse and child sex trafficking in Atlanta, which has one of the highest incident rates in America.

Next up, Tip will appear alongside Cardi B and Chance the Rapper on Netflix’s new hip-hop competition series “Rhythm + Flow.” The 10 hour-long episodes will roll out over the course of three weeks starting Oct. 9.
