Product Overview

Father, astute businessman, fashion icon, King of the South, future Hollywood A-Lister, and hip-hop standard bearer. With all these titles, no wonder Atlanta, GA native Clifford Harris needs two monikers to tell his whole story. And with the release of the year's most anticipated rap album, T.I. vs. T.I.P., we get both sides of one of contemporary music's most compelling characters.

Album Notes and Credits
It seems like T.I. hasn't gotten any rest since he hit it big with his sophomore release--2003's TRAP MUZIK. With an impressive array of LPs, mixtapes, countless guest spots, and enough industry legwork on his Grand Hustle label in the meantime, the self-proclaimed "King of the South" has been steadily putting in work.
With the follow-up to his multi-platinum smash, KING, T.I. carries a concept, pitting one persona against the other on the fittingly titled, T.I. VS. T.I.P. Speaking alternately as the rap industry mogul who moves millions and the street-corner hustler who just can't get the hood out of him, the ATL native is smart to slyly examine this duality on his own--a dilemma that has been known to dog the most successful hip-hop artists under the umbrella epithet "sell-out." Mannie Fresh, Lil C, Just Blaze, the Runners, Keith Mack, Danja, Eminem, and Jeff Bass are among the varied contributors whose production work makes T.I.'s fifth solo LP bang. T.I. VS. T.I.P. also features cameos from an array of superstar guests including Jay-Z, Eminem, Nelly, Alfa Mega, Busta Rhymes, and Wyclef Jean.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.89) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "T.I VS T.I.P. boasts the latest in hardcore synth beats -- long on tweedly hooks, brooding chords and deftly syncopated electro-percussion..."
Spin (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "In Act I, T.I.P. is at his boastful best, nodding to N.W.A....Producer Mannie Fresh supports a gothic, ethereal beat with rhythmic handclaps."
Entertainment Weekly (p.136) - "[T]he dual protagonists make for an intriguing bout." -- Grade: B
Artist Bio
Clifford "T.I." HarrisIf you ask the thought-provoking MC if he's satisfied with his success, he'll tell you it's not enough. Yes, he is grateful for all the support, but he still feels he has way more to offer and is far from being content. T.I. vs. TIP is his most eclectic project to date and finds the rap icon at the apex of lyrical skill. The album is broken into three parts. Songs by Tip open up the opus, then records by T.I. take center stage. Towards the end, the listener has a front row seat to one of the great epic sparring matches ever, as both T.I. and Tip are featured together. Along the way, both T.I. and TIP enlist such friends as Eminem, Jay-Z, Andre 3000, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Ciara, and Wyclef Jean as tag team partners. And whether he goes by T.I. or Tip, he already has quite a story to tell.
