King (Explicit Version) (2006)

|T.I.'s delivery is fluid and drawn out, and his rhymes tackle subjects typical to the gangsta rap milieu. The musical approach on KING isn't much different from the rapper's previous releases, but it's nonetheless better, with tighter rhymes, more assured execution, and superior production. In fact, it's the latter that gives KING its gleam: T.I. is backed by expansive, innovative tracks that set the stage for the next generation of Southern rap.|

Customer Reviews of King (Explicit Version)
My T. I. Opinion7/26/2006
A lot of my friends think T.I. is really sexy. Not hatin' or nothin' like that, I just don't see it. He's average to me. But I ain't mad, do yo thang, Boo. I know that the album is selling really well but I think that's only because he had already made a name for himself. A lot of fans said the CD fell short of what they were used to T.I. comin' with. I found very few songs that I liked myself. Maybe the next one will be better.
