“Love This Life,” produced by Mars of 1500 or Nothin, is a throwback to 2008’s “Whatever You Like,” when T.I. gave his lady anything she wanted in the world.
But this time around, T.I. isn’t speaking to a stock music video character — he’s directly addressing the one and only woman in his life, his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle. The married couple is living out their happily ever after for all the world to see on their reality TV show on VH1, “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.”
In “Love This Life,” T.I. goes beyond his usual materialistic references — bags, shoes and jewelry — and expresses his need for an understanding relationship.
“Mansions, jewelry all I need is for you and me to have some understanding / Have a couple candid conversations / Your frustrations I take in consideration.”
But that’s not to say the brand name-dropping rapper doesn’t fill his quota of swag.
“Anything you could ask, do it for you / Drop Jags, Berkin bags, Louboutin heels / Summer homes in Miami, Hollywood Hills.”
