If I were the GM for a rap baseball team, I would most definitely want T.I. on my squad. In fact, the ATL hitmaker would be my Ichiro Suzuki. While the former All-Star didn’t hit a homerun every time up to the plate, you knew that he was good for a few quality singles per game. Like the Japanese ballplayer, T.I has been a model of consistency for over a decade, delivering one sold single after another since his rise to stardom in the early ‘00s. Less than a month removed from the release of his new album, Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head, the Grand Hustle founder is back in the Booth with Addresses. Tip uses his unmistakable, Southern-twanged flow to call out all the haters and fakes atop a raucous T-Minus production. Without listening it should be fairly obvious that Tip hasn’t changed his approach at the plate one bit. For more from the hip-hop mainstay, purchase a copy of Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head, available now.
