T.I.‘s most recent album, The King, already reached platinum status. After hit singles such as What You Know and Why You Wanna ruled the airwaves for most of the summer, T.I. decided to release the Jaime Foxx duet, Live in the Sky. Though the song is one of his best, DJs didn’t like its inability to move bodies to the dance floor. As they say then, if it isn’t broke—then don’t fix it. So, for the first single from the new Grand Hustle compilation album, Top Back(remixed), T.I. grabs up ATLiens Young Dro, Big Kuntry and Young Jeezy, along with the newest member of the Atlantic Records family, B.G., and flows over the Mannie Fresh beat with his typical swagger and cockiness.
