"Bring Em Out" is a song by American hip hop recording artist T.I., released as the lead single from his third studio album Urban Legend. The song, produced by Swizz Beatz, contains a vocal sample from Jay-Z's "What More Can I Say". "Bring Em Out" became T.I.'s 1st Top 10 single, peaking at #9 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. The renowned hip hop whistler, Griffdaddy is credited with the "whistle" in this track.

According to Swizz Beatz in an Drink Champs interview, the instrumental was originally made for Roc-A-Fella artist (during that time), Beanie Sigel, when he was released from prison, but turned it down.
