Taylor Swift proved she wasn't just a country music cutie in 2009 when the singer teamed up with rapper T-Pain for 'Thug Story,' a PG rap parody of her crossover smash 'Love Story.'

Decked out in a flat-billed cap and gaudy gold chains, the blonde beauty proved she can spit rhymes just as well as she can write them. The talented twosome premiered the video during the CMT Music Awards ceremony, where Swift later took home the night's top honors with Video of the Year for her fairytale-themed 'Love Story' clip (the real one) later in the evening.

Swift continues to nurture her penchant for cross-genre collaborations with the recording of her upcoming album, with the singer reportedly working with an array of musicians including British rocker Ed Sheeran, Foster the People's Mark Foster and famed pop producers Butch Walker (Pink) and Dan Wilson (Adele). The highly-anticipated projected is expected to be released later this year.
