Whether he's conversing frankly with a room full of youth about the positive side of staying in school and following their dreams, or moving tens of thousands at one of his concerts, the audiences are immediately engrossed by the King of the South's words. T.I., here delivers his most potent and important LP to date; Paper Trail. The title is a direct reference to T.I.'s return to literally writing down his lyrics- a practice he hasnt engaged in since his debut. By going back to the basics T.I. has evolved into a better MC. The album features guest appearances and production by Lil Wayne. Rihanna, Usher, The Dream, Fall Out Boy, Kanye West, B.O.B, John Legend, DJ Toomp, Swizz Beatz, Drumma Boy, & Danja. Warner. 2008.

The other is T.I., whose chart topping hits are impossible to ignore. His ability to corraborate with so many well known artists and put out such an outstanding album displays his skill, influence, and style in his latest album "Paper Trail".
Especially moving is the fact that he dedicates one of his songs to Soldiers in Iraq, of which I am one of them. We have this album playing constantly while driving around in our NTVs (non-tactical vehicles). I am not the only one who feels particularly moved by the fact that he throws a shout out to us.
I don't love every song on this album, however, the songs on here I do love carry this album's weight. I give it 4 1/2 stars out of 5, specifically for "Live Your Life", "Whatever You Like", and "My Life Your Entertainment".
There's some ok tracks that have a lot of bragging tough/rich/cool guy lyrics like "On Top of the World", "My Life Your Entertainment w/ Usher", "What Up, What's Haapnin"
But then he pulls out some awesome tracks like with great beats & lyrics on "Live Your Life w/ Rihanna", "Whatever You Like", "No Matter What", & "Dead & Gone w/ Justin Timberlake"
However I have to skip "Swagga Like Us" feat. Jay Z., Kanye West, & Lil Wayne every time it comes. I like all these guys & they could've made a much better track, but the Sample they took of the girl sayin "Swagga Like Us" & played it over & over until the annoying repetition drives you nuts!!
Other than that song, excellent cd!!
I WOULD RECOMMENED THIS C.D. TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO KNOW HOW T.I. FELT ABOUT SHAWTY LO, HIS FRIEND GETTING KILLED AND HIM GETTING CAUGHT WITH GUNS, ETC. THIS C.D. RIDES FROM BEGINNING TO END. HIGHLY RECOMMENED!
