In the new video for T.I. and Keri Hilson’s “Got Your Back,” an actor plays an imprisoned man sustained by the love of a loyal lady back home. This must be a subject near and dear to the heart of T.I., who spent much of 2009 behind bars on a weapons conviction. His own real-life longtime love, former Xscape singer Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, even makes a sweet cameo with Tip at the very end of the clip.

The rest of the video shows the two main performers grooving to “Got Your Back” in various well-chosen outfits, often while separated by a symbolic wall. Check it out after the jump and let us know what you think, and if you’re looking forward for T.I.’s King Uncaged to arrive this September.
