Exclusive Video: T.I. Performs 'Rubber Band Man' on 'VH1 Storytellers'

November 29, 2010 3:26 PM ET

In this exclusive clip from his forthcoming VH1 Storytellers episode, T.I. further explains the meaning of his song "Rubber Band Man" and performs it with a full band.

Many people wondered why T.I. wore rubber bands on his wrists early in his career, and rather than explaining it repeatedly, the MC broke it down in the lyrics of the 2003 song, his first major hit.

T.I.'s VH1 Storytellers will air on the channel on December 10, just three days after his new LP, No Mercy , comes out. T.I. also discusses his current 11-month prison sentence during the show.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
