T.I. has grown to truly be one of his generation’s most captivating speakers. 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, audiences are engrossed by the King of the South’s words. On September 30, 2008, he delivers his most potent and important LP to date, Paper Trail.
“I’m not doing too much pre-hype on the album,” Tip says of his new project. “I just want everyone to know that it’s coming out, and that I’m going to answer a lot of questions in the music. It’s intense and insightful; it’s gonna shake up the game and it’s me at my best.”
Paper Trail’s title is a direct reference to T.I.’s return to literally writing down his lyrics – a practice he hasn’t engaged in since his debut, I’m Serious, in 2001. Ironically, he found that going back to the basics has helped him evolve into a better MC.
