It seemed as if T.I.’s prison stints coincided with a transition in Atlanta hip hop. As T.I. was being sentenced, Ludacris shifted away from his rap career. Meanwhile, the number of other Atlanta rappers fell out of the public eye. Coming back, T.I. finds himself the veteran among a number of newcomers.
A few other veterans have also made comebacks, however. Gucci Mane, through his street releases, held Atlanta down in the drought. During the summer, Gucci Mane renewed his beef with Young Jeezy and brought T.I. into the mix. Previously, the two worked together.
Being dissed, now, by both Gucci Mane and Alley Boy, T.I. delivered “Addresses,” a tough-talk track off Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head. T.I. spoke on this track, last night, with DJ Drama. This morning, when he dropped off his latest leak, T.I. also discussed this with Sway Calloway for Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning,” getting very vocal.
