Photos From T.I. & Lil Wayne Ball Video Shoot In New Orleans

T.I. is getting ready to release his new single “Ball” featuring Lil Wayne in October, which will appear on his upcoming Trouble Man album, due out December 18th. The King Of The South and the Best Rapper Alive shot a music video for the single on September 24th in Wayne‘s hometown, Hollygrove, New Orleans. Cameos in the Marc Klasfeld directed-visual will include appearances from: Birdman, Mack Maine, Trae Tha Truth and the producer of the song, Rico Love.

If you are wondering why Tip and Weezy shot the video in New Orleans, it is because “Ball” samples the N.O. bounce record “Triggaman“, so it was only right to. You can view some pictures from the video shoot and listen to a preview of the single after the jump below, courtesy of HHNM.

Tunechi is staying in New Orleans all this week, because later today he will be cutting the ribbon and opening his new skate park in the Lower 9th Ward Village that he built in partnership with Mountain Dew. Plus he will be celebrating his 30th birthday tomorrow with his family!
