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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
