T.I. clearly hasn’t sat down since he got out of prison – remixing cuts from Watch the Throne and churning out teaser tracks from his own upcoming as-yet-untitled record, the man hasn’t taken a break (we hope he’s not too busy recording new music to attend his parole meetings this time).
Latest track “Hear Ye, Hear Ye” sees T.I. riding a simple, painfully repetitive looped drums-and-horns beat, expostulating on his prison stint and subsequent generally tough existence. It’s kind of disappointing to hear T.I. resort to early-2000s hip-hop lyrical tropes and hashtag rap at the same time, but give it a listen anyway.
