T.I. is so accustomed to a life of constant excitement and looming danger that, to him, the Wildside feels like the normal side. (As for whether walking on the normal side would feel wild or just boring, I’ll let y’all speculate.) Coming on the heels of reader-approved, Cee-Lo-assisted single Hello, this freshly-released album standout finds the Grand Hustle head honcho coming together with rising rap star A$AP Rocky to offers listeners a glimpse of the only world they’ve ever known—one where 15-year-old kids sell keys and tote AKs, dead bodies are an everyday sight and fortunes can be gained and lost overnight. Chi-town mainstay No I.D. provides a slow-burning synth instrumental to back the record. Tip’s long-awaited Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head is scheduled to drop Tuesday, December 18, and Rocky is currently prepping his studio debut, LongLiveA$AP, for release January 15.
