Last Night a Trap Boy Saved My Life: T.I.'s Urban Legend

I realized I couldn't seek comfort in the music me and Daddy shared. I needed something raw, music that would hit me in my chest where only natural, involuntary muscle movements indicated I was still, technically, alive.

The Best Hip-Hop of 2008

A return to the mic nine years in the making, a hip-hop supergroup of sorts, and Tom Waits beatboxing: this year's top-shelf hip-hop is equal parts anticipation, teamwork, and wha?!

Best Hip-Hop of 2006

Quentin Huff's top-ten list of mixtapers, hustlers, protesters, emcees, and self-proclaimed kings finds hip-hop very much alive and well in 2006.

T.I.'s Winding Road to Redemption

The road to Grammy-winning rap star Clifford "T.I." Harris, Jr.'s positive outcome may be paved with good intentions, but self-interest fuels the journey.

T.I.: Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head

T.I. (mostly) returns to trap rap in an attempt to deliver what No Mercy probably should have been. Perhaps not amazing, but certainly reinvigorating.

T.I.: No Mercy

Oft-delayed and seldom promoted, T.I.'s latest release arrives as perhaps the final nail in his popstar coffin. The King isn't dead, but he's certainly been dethroned.

T.I.: T.I. vs. T.I.P.

The Rubberband Man snaps back better than ever on his new release.

T.I.: King

It's pretty early in 2006 to talk about albums of the year -- but this record says it's time to start.
