"Live in the Sky" is the third and final single released by T.I. from his album King. It features Jamie Foxx. The song is mainly about T.I.'s deceased family members and friends who have died in violence, drugs, and even tuberculosis. An alternate version exists with varied lyrics, due to the explicit nature of the original track. The alternate version does not also include the third verse.

Music video[edit]

In the video, the track's alternate version is used. As T.I. states in the beginning of the song, the video is dedicated to his deceased best friend Philant "Big Phil" Johnson, who was shot outside a nightclub after the release of King. Actor Forest Whitaker appears in the video. The music video makes similar references to Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's "Tha Crossroads".[1] The video was directed by Chris Robinson.
