Editors’ Notes

The saga of the Rubber Band Man continues. While the rapper/author/reality TV star has had some well-publicized run-ins with the men in blue, he always seems to snap back and his tribulations have made this urban legend's story more compelling. This star-studded collection opens with a Marvin Gaye-sampling hustler’s theme, (“Introduction”) that reminds listeners of T.I.’s journey—a candid glimpse into his life and thoughts that’s echoed on the R. Kelly-assisted “Can You Learn.” Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head is packed with sinister beats punctuated by dramatic synths (“Addresses,” “G Season” feat. Meek Mill, “Trap Back Jumpin”), which offer the perfect canvas for The King of the South to paint with his smooth, relentless flow. P!nk pops up on a touching ode to doomed relationships (“Guns and Roses”), Lil Wayne stunts on the ‘80s-inspired slapper “Ball,” and listeners are treated to appearances by André 3000, Akon, A$AP Rocky, and Cee Lo Green.

T.I. Still got game as far as his rapping skills, but this CD sounds rushed. I think T.I. Definitely wanted to hurry up and put his name back out there but I have heard better. I agree when he said in an interview 'it's hard to give the people what they want when you really want to go in another direction' this sounds exactly like that "thrown together". Thank goodness for iTunes and that you don't have to buy the whole album. T.I. Gets by with a few singles from this and maybe that's all he is expecting.


this is a combo of king, paper trail, and no mercy. this has awesome artists on it like meek mill, p!nk, cee lo, lil wayne, asap rocky, akon, and r.kelly. The king has done it again!



It is worth every point of interest. He went back to his sound of trap music, with an edge sound that is very current and impressive. His production team for this album is good. There is room where it could have been great.

His album aligns with the love for his family and friends. They have put together a well rounded package. The right amount of guest artist, but not to many to take over the album.

T.I. - I am proud of you!!!

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. maintained...
