Few Rap stars have the ability to find the kind of balance that T.I. does. The ATL trap veteran is able to seemingly always appease his core audience, while growing the circle through catchy production, out of genre guest-work, and Euro-Dance samples.

Gearing up for Paperwork, Tip continues what he did brilliantly on 2008’s Paper Trail. The MC’s first album in the Columbia Records machine is believed to include “About The Money.” Featuring budding sensation/Gucci Mane protege Young Thug, the song presents a rapper who knows his worth, but hasn’t dumbed down his flow or softened his street edge just to reach younger, wider audiences. Produced by London On The Track, this trunk-rattler has that knock that’s made T.I. such a mainstream juggernaut, causing his peers to reconsider their sound.
