T.I. and Justin Timberlake have a new hit single once again, “Dead and Gone.” With Justin, nothing he does goes unnoticed, and with T.I. going to jail soon, the single was sure to be a hit. Personally anything with the name Justin Timberlake is on my radar, so I was excited to hear some new stuff from him.

The duo preformed the new single at the Grammys and was one of the main highlights of the evening. Tip entered through a billow of smoke while Timberlake rode shotgun at the piano for a stellar performance.

The video does the song justice and pays a nice tribute to T.I.’s assistant, Philant Johnson, who was killed in 2006.

Check out “Dead and Gone� music video below along with the lyrics below.

“Dead and Gone” Lyrics

[Chorus – Justin Timberlake]:
Ohh I’ve been travelin on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
Ohh I’ve been travelin on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone

[Verse 1 – T.I.]:
Ever had one of dem days you wish woulda stayed home
Run into a group of niggas getting they hate on
You walk by they get wrong you reply then shit get blown
Way outta proportion way past discussion
Just you against them, pick one then rush em
Figure you get your hair? that next
They dont wanna stop there now they buzzin
Now you gushin, ambulance rushin you to the hospital
with a bad concussion
Plus ya hit 4 times plus it hit ya spine paralyzed waist down
now ya wheel chair bound
Never mind that now you lucky to be alive,
Just think it all started you fussin with 3 guys
Now ya pride in the way but ya pride is the way
you could fuck around get shot die anyday
Niggas die every day all over bull shit dope money
dice game ordinary hood shit
Could this be cuz of hip hop music
or did the ones with the good sense not use it
Usually niggas don’t know what to do
when their back against the wall so they just start shootin
For red or for blue or for blow I guess,
from Bankhead or from your projects
No more stress, now I’m straight, now I get it now I take
Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family’s sake
That part of me left yesterday the heart of me is strong today
No regrets I’m blessed to say the old me dead and gone away

[Chorus – Justin Timberlake]:
Ohh I’ve been travelin on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
Ohh I’ve been travelin on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone

[Verse 2 – T.I.]:
I ain’t never been scared, I lived through tragedy
Situation coulda been dead lookin back at it
Most of that shit didn’t even have to happen
But you don’t think about it when you out there trappin
In apartments hangin smokin and rappin
Niggas start shit didn’t next thing ya know we cappin
Get locked up then didn’t even get mad
Now think about damn what a life I had
Most of that shit look back just laugh
Some shit still look back just sad
Maybe my homeboy still be around
Had I not hit the nigga in the mouth that time
I won that fight, I lost that war
I can still see my nigga walkin out that door
Who’da thought I’d never see Philant no more
Got enough dead homies I don’t want no more
Cost a nigga his job, cost me more
I’da took that ass-whoopin now for sure
Now think before I risk my life
Take them chances to get my stripes
A nigga put his hands on me alright
Otherwise stand there talk shit all night
Cuz I hit you, you sue me,
I shoot you, get locked up, who me?
No more stress, now I’m straight, now I get it now I take
Time to think before I make mistakes just for my family’s sake
That part of me left yesterday the heart of me is strong today
No regrets I’m blessed to say the old me dead and gone away.

[Chorus – Justin Timberlake]:
Ohh I’ve been travelin on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
Ohh I’ve been travelin on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone

[Justin Timberlake]:
I turn my head to the east I dont see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the west still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the north, swallow that pill that they call pride
The old me is dead and gone, the new me will be alright
I turn my head to the east I dont see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the west still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the north, swallow that pill that they call pride
The old me is dead and gone, the new me will be alright

[Chorus – Justin Timberlake]:
Ohh I’ve been travelin on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
Ohh I’ve been travelin on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
