Hip Hop Boy Wonder

T.I is a genius. His latest album, Papertrail , beyond being a financial success is also the center piece of a hip hop revival. The album is a manifestation of what hip hop once was. It hearkens back to the day when poet philosophers linked words together in such a way that it inspired kids in the late 80's to gather around their televisions like campfires, to watch Yo MTV Raps.

While other artists are having trouble selling albums at all in this age of the internet, Papertrail is going to be re-released this year. During the king's unfortunate incarceration (366 days) the new release will feature five new singles. Real talk no shit, T.I.'s going to ball every chance he gets.
