As a blogger, it’s easy sometimes to get so lost in the weirdest parts of the internet that quality mainstream tracks, like T.I.’s “Memories Back Then,” get lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday searching.
While the song has been out for a little bit, visuals for the track were just released today. Working with Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B, and Kris Stephens, the music video has a special kick with these artists that a veteran like T.I. can’t always provide by himself. Miss Stephens also further brought a little sexy to the video, perfect for the otherwise macho-vibe, even though her vocals were my least favorite part of the song.
I do miss the old T.I. days when he was yelling “Bring Em Out,” but I think that’s more of a personal nostalgia for the Hip Hop of my youth. Despite my wish that that style would come back, T.I. Did a real number to the song, and the end product is very enjoyable.
T.I. has a whooping 46 concerts listed on Soundkick, including a tour with Lil Wayne, as well as this single out on iTunes. To no one’s surprise, Kendrick Lamar is having another massive year, including a college tour with Steve Aoki; B.o.B.’s home page also indicates a busy schedule for him as well.
