The King of the South is officially back. After announcing that the release date of his first post-prison album 'Uncaged' has been pushed up, T.I. debuted the official music video for his first single 'I'm Back' via his website Monday (April 26).

Dressed in a black hoodie, Tip makes his way out of a SUV and into an abandoned building, lighting a match to reveal his face just as the beat and the sunlight both creep in. Fittingly so, the 'Trap Muzik' star changes his clothes, throws on a pair of shades and takes a spin around his hometown in a black Ferrari before making it to the recording studio. If the lyrics for 'I'm Back' are any indication as to what the album will bring, Tip is all but boiling over from all those months of silence. "I'm disappointed in you dog you ain't hold it down at all, but I ain't goin' in your jaw I'm just gonna show you how to ball," he spits in a verse. "Standing tall through the storm on the yard or in the dorms cats in prison who expecting me to represent for 'em."

Since his release from prison to a halfway house last December Tip has been laying low, making spot appearances in Los Angeles and his hometown of Atlanta. Meanwhile, his label has been dropping promotional hints about his album mainly via his website and Twitter page. The King will be officially 'Uncaged' when his album drops August 17.
