Review this album
Nov 23, 2010While not excessively deep, this album is a collection of clever rhymes and excellent high profile guests such as Justin Timberlake, Usher, Ludacris, and Rihanna. While much of the album focuses on "The King of the South", when he actually gets deeper, it's really something extraordinary.
Jul 11, 2013Paper Trail is a reflective album for T.I. Lyrically he reflects on his career so far and focuses on his merits and the fact that honestly nobody currently in the game compares nor have they made it very competitive. This holds as solid material based on what he's previously accomplished and how he's blessed hip hop with the realest and best material the past 7 years. The production in this album is something new for T.I. and isn't exactly what fans of his have come accustom to hearing from him, but then again neither is the lyrical content. The beats are more high pitched and slowed down which somewhat diminishes the quality of the album along with the lyrical content lacking the direct realness that his previous albums contained, but not by much. Not to mention what he is saying is true seeing as how no one in the game really compares. Overall this is another very good album by an artist who is on track to be the greatest and has now shown his ability to significantly diversify his music and make it a success.… Expand
