Fresh out the pen, back on the grind, Tip’s first official release as a free man is a mixtape. F*ck that. Actually, it’s F*ck A Mixtape and judging from the tracklist, it’s easy to see why its named that. It sets up like album and plays through just like one. Featuring original production from Jim Jonsin, No I.D., Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, DJ Toomp and others, T.I. proves that ever since he hit that halfway house earlier this year, his time has been put to good use. No questions about that.
This should carry him over nicely until August 17 when King Uncaged hits shelves – and Takers hits theaters August 20. If it plays out like King and ATL did, then we could be in for a repeat offering of deja vu. Regardless, The King is back. So how’s the rest of the game going to act? You shouldn’t worry about that, however. All that is required of you is simple. Throw this on the iPod or grab a blank CD. This may be in rotation for a minute.
