    I had some high hopes for this album, especially after all the legal trouble Tip had over the last little bit and how underwhelming Paper Trail was....while some of the tracks are straight fire (G Season, Can you learn, etc), others felt a bit forced and could have been left off Paper Trail or were created by focus group studies (guns and roses lol).

I think TI is one of the best rappers...but this album feels too uneven and a bit disappointing. Cmon TIP! Expand

    The collaborations of this album would do blush Justin Bieber (P!nk, Cee Lo Green, Akon). T.I. is more than ten years in the music business, but it's always the same music.

    It's okay, I suppose. It's not Trap Muzik but at least its not No Mercy. T.I. is one of the souths best ever rappers, and Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head is a statement of his intent to stay secure in that position. Not his worst, but by no means his best. 6/10

    By combining the deep-bass beats and fast-spitting rhymes of Trap Muzik with mature, more-to-the-story rhymes, Tip finds himself back in the limelight. [Feb-Mar 2013, p.89]

    A record that finely straddles his gruff past and glitzier present. DJ Toomp buoys T.I. on Trap Back Jumpin. An incandescent collaboration with André 3000 balances out an unfortunate Pink cameo.

    Trouble Man's scattershot approach makes it the realest album the guy could make in 2012, but that doesn't make it any good.
