T.I.’s forthcoming Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head LP doesn’t skimp on the guest spots.
A$AP Rocky, R. Kelly, Lil Wayne and Meek Mill have all been tapped up to appear on the rapper’s eighth studio LP. With the record primed to drop on December 18 through Grand Hustle/Atlantic, new cut ‘Sorry’ has just dropped, and it features a welcome cameo by Outkast alumnus/Jimi Hendrix impersonator Andre 3000.
‘Sorry’ sees the pair trade verses over a breezy instrumental, although the curdled funk bass adds a touch of trouble to proceedings. T.I.’s appearance is strong, showcasing the rapper’s elastic twang at its most effective. Three Stacks, meanwhile, pulls his usual trick of absolutely killing it: his rapid-fire verse is self-depricating, rhythmically inventive and shot through with personality. Not that T.I. gives a fig (“Never mind what the blogs say”), but ‘Sorry”s got nothing to apologise for. Head to Rap Radar to listen.
