As the title of his last full-length, Trouble Man, attests, T.I.‘s seen more than his fair share of setbacks over the course of his career in the game. Recently, though, the tide seems to have turned. On this freshly-released single, it’s not the Grand Hustle kingpin who’s got Problems—it’s anyone foolish enough to tangle with him and his Hustle Gang colleagues. B.o.B. handles production on this street-ready joint, crafting a gritty, gangster whistle-laced backdrop for fire verses from himself and his label boss, as well as equally scorching contributions from crewmates Trae the Truth and Problem. Fire also happens to be the central theme of PhillyFlyBoy‘s newly-released visuals, which depict the collaborators literally bursting into flames as they rhyme. For more, check out Hustle Gang’s G.D.O.D. (Get Dough or Die) tape, released earlier this year for free digital download.
