T.I.'s Dime Trap single "The Weekend" now has a Kid Art-directed video.

Up top, watch the new video for the Swizz Beatz-produced track—based on a story by T.I.—via YouTube. T.I. and Young Thug are joined in the narrative clip's cast by Coqueta Torres, Bella Davis, Stephanie Gonzalez, Sophia Serrelle, Nour Assaf, and Gloria Louis.

Kid Art has previously helmed videos for Cardi B, Pusha-T, Wyclef Jean, Dave East, and more.


On Dime Trap, his first full-length studio album since 2014's Paperwork, T.I. assembled a veritable group of top-shelf producers and featured artists including Dave Chappelle, Bangladesh, David Banner, Scott Storch, Anderson .Paak, Meek Mill, Teyana Taylor, Jeezy, and more.

With the album, T.I.'s stated goal was evolution for both himself and the trap genre. "I want to diversify it and also, I guess, allow it the ability to mature," he toldBillboard on Dime Trap release day.

As for how those Chappelle narrative bits found their way onto the final product, T.I. explained that the collab was a natural one due to the frequency of their hangouts. The two will usually hit a dive bar after a show, where T.I. prefers to order Scotch.

T.I. also recently became a member of Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms' transition team, where he will assist with the development of policies that will "drive the city of Atlanta forward."

Meanwhile, a Melania Trump is apparently bothered by T.I.'s previous Dime Trap promo video. "Dear 45, I ain't Kanye," T.I. tweeted Friday when sharing the video, which shows a Melania lookalike removing her notorious I Really Don't Care jacket:
