In 2001, an unknown rapper broke through on the southern underground with his debut album 'I'm Serious' - which was highly slept on. On his debut and then the follow, he makes the claim he's 'Da King Of Da South' and no one was going to argue. The rapper: T.I. Since his first album, T.I. has rhymed alongside some really noteable name's - David Banner, Lil Jon, Killer Mike, Bonecrusher ('Never Scared' anyone?) among others. On 'Trap Muzik', T.I. really delivers. Everyone's heard the riding anthem '24's' and that's just one of the hits he drops.
To kick things off, T.I. and Grand Hustle artist Mac Boney deliver the title track 'Trap Muzik'. T.I.'s flow and delivery is one target and this cut's amazing. 'I Can't Quit' follows this up and T.I. really gets at the haters on this one. Really ridin'. One of the hottest tracks is definetly 'No More Talk' with a chorus that's just pure fiyah. T.I. really delivers on this one. '24's' is amazing and is swiflty followed by the third single, the David Banner produced 'Rubber Band Man'. The beat is menacing and the hook is addictive (Rubber Band Man, wild as a Taliban!). The hottest track on the album is easily the soulful 'I Still Luv U' which is T.I.'s hottest cut to date in my opinion. Amazing with such great replay value.
Other tight songs include 'Be Easy' where he gets at DTP, the insightful 'T.I. Vs. T.I.P.' and the Bun B and 8Ball & MJG assisted 'Bezzle'. There's not a bad track on the album and T.I. captivates you from start to finish. The lyrics, flow and beats on the album keep T.I. ontop of the south, and you can't deny him as Da King Of Da South with this one. Easily a 5 star classic.
