T.I.'s Post-Prison Proclamations


Last week was a busy one for T.I. Ready to position himself as one of the best in the game again, the recently released rapper dropped his first post-prison music. In total, there were four songs: his single, “I’m Flexin’,” featuring Big K.R.I.T.; a guest spot on Young Jeezy’s “F.A.M.E.”; a new verse on Future’s “Magic”; and “Spend It,” alongside 2 Chainz. Based on those collaborations, it’s clear that T.I. has his pulse on who’s hot in the South. An examination of his lyrics on the four tracks—a total of six verses—also reveals some trends in Tip’s content. Take a look at what the King wants people to know…
