Hip hop recording artist T.I. released a twelve-minute movie for his song “G Shit” featuring Jeezy, and Watch the Duck. “G Shit” is the fourth single released from T.I.‘s Paperwork album. The mini-movie features a guest appearance from actor Wood Harris, who also starred in the films Remember The Titans and Paid In Full. The “G Shit” movie was directed by Chris Robinson, and its theme is set in the 1960s. T.I. plays the role of a club-owner who is trying to escape his “gangster-like” past. It appears the movie is loosely based on 50 Cent‘s television series Power.
