T.I. To Debut Short Film, ‘Us Or Else’

blame it on Meka April 24, 2017

In 2016 T.I. eschewed his trademark “trap muzik” stylings for the politically and socially aware project Us Or Else. That project will now be turned into a short film, slated to air on the various BET Networks tonight (April 24th) at 11pm EST.

In the short T.I. plays a conflicted police officer, stuck between his job and partners and the rising tension of cops gunning down unarmed Black youths. Eventually he turns in the Martin Luther Tip and leads a community in a Black Lives Matter march… or that’s what the trailer below suggests, at least.

T.I. will also have a discussion with CNN’s Angela Rye on the topics of Us Or Else, immediately following its airing. Watch a preview of the short below.
