Is Pharrell’s first verse line, It's fecal fam/ Yea it’s the shit, the most surprisingly undemure of the year? With flip flops on and a Qream cocktail in hand, P nearly outraps Tip on "Hear Ye, Hear, Ye." But the longtime collaborators give complementary performances in this video, staring down the camera together with goofy hats on. Cameos by a trumpet and drum set, T.I.'s kids and Jeezy, but not Tip's Family Hustle costar Taylor Swift. "Hear Ye, Hear Ye" will likely appear on T.I.'s 2012 album (his eighth!), Trouble Man. T.I. promises a mixtape anticipating that release, entitled Fuck the City Up, for the first of the new year.
