No Mediocre

T.I.

featuring Iggy Azalea

Paperwork: The Motion Picture

June 17th, 2014

T.I. doesn't want to mess with mediocre women--he only wants "bad bitches." His criteria includes: shaving (everything), asking for a Benz when someone gifts you a Jag, doing your hair, and wearing six-inch heels instead of tennis shoes. Iggy Azalea steps in to prove that she is, indeed, a "bad bitch" in need of a "bad boy."

  • The video begins with T.I. in the Tavares Bastos favela and making his way through the village, playing a quick game of football before heading to his home, where some exotic- looking women await him. He then meets up with Azalea, as she dances alongside T.I. at an outdoor party.
  • As of August 21, 2014 “No Mediocre” has peaked at number 6 on the US Hot Rap Songs chart, number 11 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and number 40 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
  • Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. was born on September 25, 1980, in Atlanta, Georgia and is better known by his stage name T.I. (and formerly T.I.P.).
  • He was raised by his grandparents in Atlanta's Bankhead neighborhood.
  • T.I. embarked on his music career alongside his longtime friends and fellow rappers in the Southern hip hop group Pimp Squad Click (P$C).
  • He is the founder and co-chief executive officer (CEO) of Grand Hustle Records, which he launched in 2003.
  • In 2009, Billboard ranked him as the 27th Artist of the 2000s decade.
  • He has won three Grammy Awards throughout his career.
  • T.I. has served two terms in county jail, twice for probation violations and a federal prison bid for a U.S. federal weapons charge.
  • He was once known as Rubber Band Man, a reference to the custom of wearing rubber bands around the wrist to denote wealth in terms of drugs or money.
  • On October 13, 2010, T.I. convinced Joshua Starks, a 24-year-old suicidal man in Atlanta, not to jump from a 22-story building. After hearing of the situation on the radio, he drove to the scene at the 400 Colony Square Building asked police if he could help. T.I. then talked to the man, and convinced him not to jump. Afterwards, T.I. stated "For one, I'm not taking any credit. I didn't do it... I could've just as well came down there and it could have been resolved in another way. The fact of the matter is that God put me in a position to help, and I can't take any credit for that."
