T.I. tackles police brutality from multiple viewpoints in his new "Us or Else" short film.
You can now watch T.I.'s politically challenging new short film, Us or Else, which aired on BET last month.
The 15-minute film is released in support of Us or Else: Letter to the System, the double EP that Tip dropped in December (following the original Us or Else EP in September). A couple of music videos from Us or Else: Letter to the System tracks are worked into the new film, which deals with a community's response to the police killing of an unarmed black man.
T.I. plays three characters -- a friend of the victim's, a police officer, and a preacher. They each must fuse their individual perspectives in order to join forces in the fight against systematic oppression. Appearances in the film come from R&B singer Charlie Wilson as well as Hustle Gang artists like London Jae, B.o.B, Young Dro, Translee, and more.
