Besides Nas, is any artist as consistently ferocious on the intro than T.I.? Regardless of where each of the P$C MC’s albums have ended up in the consciousness or on the charts, the first track usually sets the tone that has the veteran Tip listener thumping their chest, and the newcomer craving more immediately.

With Paperwork processing tomorrow (October 21), is it any surprise that “King” (sharing its name with arguably Clifford’s finest title) lives up to that trend?


The 1500 Or Nothin’ (Game, Nipsey Hussle) cut explodes as Tip crosses every ‘T’ and dots every ‘I’ before the ink on the Paperwork is even dry.
