Ball is T.I.’s latest single off his upcoming album, Trouble Man, due mid-December. This song kind of goes against what I said in my J. Cole post, but damn… the beat is infectious and the chord progression used in the chorus is so good! Not to mention T.I. is a family man and still goes hard!
Since we haven’t had any rap posts in a little while, here’s a handful that are fresh off the Pro Tools..
DJ Drama feat. 2 Chainz, Meek Millz, Jeremih – My Moment Beat and vibe very similar to I’m On One, and that’s a not a bad thing.
DJ Khaled feat. Kanye West & Rick Ross – I Wish You WouldKanye getting violent and buck on his verses these days.
T.I. – Go Get It Vintage T.I. swagger over a nasty beat. His latest studio album Trouble Man is coming soon.
Replaces the original’s mediocre lyrics with some strong, on-point flows from the relevant artists in the game. Keeps the hypnotic beat. What’s more to like?
New T.I., expected to be the single off his upcoming release Trouble Man (what a fitting name). He’s a beast on this beat. Download link
New T.I. featuring his Grand Hustle label mate B.o.B. This was written after he was released from his bid last year in December of 09. Back behind bars, T.I. decided to release it now to keep the fans ears perked until he’s back out in the real world this fall. Download link
Featuring a fire “Speaking in Tounges” type beat. Killer Mike is a slept on cat, he usually shows up with a dope verse and a slick flow (he outshines Jay-Z on “Flip Flop Rock”). This one dropped mid-way last year, but never really got much attention, per usual.
This track bangs too hard for the lounge crowd but is perfect for the crack rap aficionados. One of those joints to knock in your car as the 808s are booming. Rick Ross shows up with his straightforward to-the-point flow and for those that need help with their drug vocab, Urban dictionary is the spot if you don’t want to make the trip to your local projects.
Here’s another Rick Ross and T.I. track, another one bound to bang in trunks of old Cadillacs. The intro gives me goosebumps it goes so hard, this one’s called “Pledge Allegience to the Swag”
