Like seemingly everyone, I’ve been enjoying the Clifford Harris comeback tour so far. I’m Back was a banger, Yeah Ya Know was a banger; it appeared that T.I. was dead set on proving he was still vicious on the mic and in the streets, until now. Today we get the first made-for-radio offering from Tip, Got Your Back, a female-friendly cut that essentially attempts to recreate the magic of Whatever You Like. On the production tip DJ Toomp turns down the trap and turns up the melody, delivering a brightly bouncing beat that T.I. uses to drop rhymes about buying his girl all the good things in life (sound familiar) and thank her for visiting him in jail (personal experience?). And who’s this lucky, loyal lady? How does Keri Hilson sound? A combination like that could only mean one thing; we’ve got a hit on our hands. Don’t call it a comeback, T.I.’s been here for years. The King’s new album King Uncaged is set to drop on August 7.
