Maybe it was just me, but when I heard T.I. was going to prison, I knew he was going to come back hungry and raw, right? Well, since his release T.I has kept a relatively low profile, making some of us wonder when the King was going to truly take his throne back. Now I’m not saying his new street single Yeah Ya Know (Takers) is going to rocket him back to the top, but it’s definitely a banger that reminds us why Tip is praised. The single, which does double-duty as a promotional single for his upcoming movie Takers, shows T.I. dropping an ill flow and lyrics that let us know that prison hasn’t changed him, but rather has made him better. Produced by Smash Factory and DJ Toomp, who has helped T.I. craft hits like What You Know, the song is built around guitars, synths and heavy drums that transform the record into a real trunk banger. If this is a preview of T.I.’s upcoming album King Uncaged, which is set to be released on August 7, then the king will probably be back on his throne soon.
