Editors’ Notes

Recorded while T.I. was under house arrest on pending gun charges, Paper Trail is split between songs that address two distinct objectives. “No Matter What” and “My Life, Your Entertainment” allow T.I. to speak candidly to his audience about his stress, his mistakes, and his anger as an impending prison sentence looms over him. Just as importantly, “Live Your Life” and “Whatever You Like” are memorable radio spectacles designed to bring the masses on board and keep them there, at least until T.I.’s legal woes subside. The album’s heart and soul rest with the tracks on which T.I. bares his soul. On “Ready For Whatever,” he admits his own guilt, and confides: “500,000 every year spent on security / My future was bright but now its getting’ blurry.” Paper Trail is at its most compelling when T.I. is confessing his vulnerability in the face of all that plagues him.

Customer Reviews

Album Of The Year. Period

I could go into detail and description about every song on this album but it just isn't necessairy. All I need to say is buy the album. The full album because you can sit there and listen to this work of art again and again and again fully. I dont remember when I could do that alot with an album. Even C3 i started skipping tracks here and there. If you are a rap fan or just like nice beats pt covers it all. Man even the bonus tracks are fire. Tip coulda released another 10 tracks and i bet they all would be fire. He is a lyrical poet and has a great ear for a great beat and getting back with dj toomp was smart. The only people who will hate this album are simply haters who cannot bear the fact that t.i. is KING . he has his crown and its not coming off anytime soon. Go get the hard copy as this is a sure classic. KING.

Wow.

This album is nothing below the best for all you Hip-Hop heads. It definately isn't that meaningless stuff like 50 Cent and Soulja Boy. From talking about the streets, to rapping for one of his friends. This album has everything. Take a second to actually listen to the lyrics he wrote in this album and you'll definately agree. My personal favorite tracks are; My Life, Your Entertainment - This track goes and explains his currently position and what he goes through. Swing Ya Rag - This is another trend starter; smokin' instrumental and a catchy hook. Slide Show - This one really tells a story and gives a lot of advice to people. Dead and Gone - Definately the best track; smokin' instrumental, great hook, and really dominant lyrics as to what goes on day to day with people. This is what it's really about. Listen up and you'll understand.

But, Isn't Rap Supposed To Be Garbage?

I absolutely hate rap. I agree that rap is poetry, and is expressed to the beat of music. But, seriously, the rappers we hear today have destroyed the appreciation of this artistic way of speaking. In other words: Rappers nowadays sound horrible. Therefore, my mind, and everyone else's minds, have been warped to believe that rap is garbage. I don't know about you, but atleast 6 songs from this album are excused from the all-rap-is-garbage rule. Listen to the entire song, and listen carefully to the lyrics. They aren't just about nothing. They have perfectly good meaning. Most of the people who are saying that the songs have no meaning, are probably just listening to the 30-second samples. Don't be stupid and ignore these following songs: Live Your Life, Whatever You Like, No Matter What, Slide Show, Dead and Gone, and My Life Your Entertainment.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Once dubbed "the Jay-Z of the South" by Pharrell Williams, T.I. gradually came into his own and established himself as one of rap's most successful MCs during the early 2000s. Like Jay-Z, T.I. — born Clifford Harris in Atlanta, Georgia — carried a balance of smoothness and toughness, and although 2001's I'm Serious didn't shoot him out of the gate à la Reasonable Doubt, he consistently grew and launched a string of major hits with 2003's "24's." Throughout the six following years, T.I....
