Tomorrow, T.I. will release his album Paperwork, but before it hits shelves and iTunes, he's decided to drop off the project's intro track, entitled "King."
A soulful, brass-led track produced by 1500 Or Nothin', this is, quite fittingly, one of the few tracks on Paperwork that recalls the rapper's King era (the 2006 album, not to be confused with this track). Tip raps with the swagger of a practiced veteran and the hunger of a rapper eager to reclaim (or, in some minds, confirm) his "King Of The South" title. Do y'all think he deserves it?
You can stream Paperwork right here until midnight tonight.
Call me the chief, no capo, capiche
These streets all I need
And yeah how I walk it exactly the way that I talk it
Once at the head man he rest in the coffin
