“Dead and Gone,” as an above par pop rap song, harnessing the selling power of two of the most popular artists of today: TI and Justin Timberlake.
However after dredging through the five minute wonder it is, the lyrics merge into one, and you can not tell the difference between the artists.
Both sound mediocre, washed up and bored. To make things worse, the song tries to be preachy with a strong message.
This is only visible if you watch the depressing video, as the song itself is so cryptic, the message is lost amongst lots of noise, and random vocal effects.
Avoid this song, it is not worth buying unless you want another lecture.
