T.I. & DJ Toomp Are Back To Making Trunk-Rattling Trap (Audio)
Does anybody make trunks rattle quite like DJ Toomp? A product of the Miami Bass movement of the late ’80s and early ’90s, Toomp found mainstream success in developing a sound that fit so snugly with T.I.’s cocky lyrics about never backing down. The pair, like Common and No I.D., Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, and Pusha T and Pharrell, have an amicable, but on-again/off-again working relationship. Some Tip purists often argue that the self-proclaimed “King Of The South” never sounds as good as he does with those fuzzed out basslines, which sometimes incorporate some stellar sampling.
“Turn It” is not only an ongoing reunion (Toomp was on Trouble Man and No Mercy), but the first single (remember the last time this happened?) from T.I.’s upcoming Paperwork: The Motion Picture LP.
