The self-proclaimed King of the South has our attention. T.I. promised Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head (December 18th) would give the Trap Muzik fans what they’ve been missing from him. So far “Trap Back Bumpin,” “Ball” featuring Lil Wayne, “Sorry” featuring Andre 3000 and now his latest “Hello” featuring Cee Lo, has not disappointed.
Produced by the Neptunes, “Hello” is the soulful ode to progression. T.I. has a lot to say on that front given everything he’s overcome. “So many times I’ve shown dudes I won’t lose,” he raps over the bassline. Cee Lo smoothly sings, “There’s some jealousy in your rearview, wave hello/Push that pedal to the max/Count that money that’s in your lap.” Judging by the four aforementioned songs (and we may or may not have heard others during a private listening), Trouble Man has it’s mix of club bangers, riding music, a song for the ‘hood and of course, something for the ladies. But until December 18th, get into “Hello.”
