T.I. griped to MTV Monday that his new video for “Swing Ya Rag” is being held up by fashion houses Louis Vuitton and Gucci, who are apparently upset over his use of their logos.
“We did it, and it came out hot,” the rapper said of the clip. “Louis [Vuitton] and Gucci started trippin’ about it. They were saying we were infringing, in one way or another. They weren’t happy about it. They didn’t want it to come out. But it’s hot, though.”
Tip has instead decided to shoot a video for his latest single, “Live Your Life” with Rihanna, as well as a possible clip for “Swagger Like Us,” featuring Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lil Wayne.
“I hope we can pull that off,” he told MTV. “That was the definite intentions initially. We have to see when everybody is all available. I’m available whenever they are.”
