King T.I.

T.I. is a braggadocio but he could back his swag up with fluid flows and lyrical skills. From the self-boosting “King Back” to the shit-spitting “I’m Talking to You,” King, his most successful album to date, proves T.I. at the top of his game. Clocking in around 75 minutes, the album could use some trimming, but the fine productions, especially the hypnotic horn samples and energetic beat from Just Blaze’s cuts, help pulling through. In fact, several revisits to King are necessary.
