Album Review: T.I. – ‘Paperwork: The Motion Picture’

ti-paperwork-cover

T.I , the self-proclaimed king of the south has been receiving commercial success from the early 2000’s to now. His mainstream presence helped him become a recognizable name in today’s music industry. Albums like Paper Trail, King, or Urban Legend are oftentimes praised whilst his other LPs such as T.I vs TIP, No Mercy, Trouble Man etc.. fall into the overlooked category. T.I is one of the rare musicians that has provided his fanbase a precisely equal amount of good and bad. Take his latest singles for instance — About The Money: an undeniable crowd pleaser vs No Mediocre: a mundane dedication to appealing women. You’re not sure what to expect from the album if you listen to both tracks back to back. Nevertheless, No Mediocre also did relatively alright as a result of the audience Iggy Azeala’s feature enthralled. T.I was on a triumphant run throughout 2014 thanks to the two singles. Sure, Paperwork’s release was highly anticipated, but its outcome quality-wise seemed extremely difficult to predict.

So, is Paperwork a gem, or just a regular stone? Read more
