T.I. Reminds Us Why We Fight For Our Rights W/ Disturbing American Slavery Numbers

Grammy-winning rapper T.I. is more than woke a day after Black History Month. The King of the South has served up a hefty reminder for why African Americans feel more than entitled to respect in this country.

Tip went to Instagram last night (February 28) and showed just how long America has kept blacks down.

Last spring, the King of the South said he couldn't see himself putting out more than three studio albums before hanging up the mic.

He told The Associated Press in a recent interview that he expects to release an album revolving around “trap music” this year. He’s released nine full-length albums so far, and says he has “two or three albums left in him.” The 36-year-old added: “But it’s definitely time to transition.” (The Washington Post)

Back in February 2017, T.I. revealed his final studio album title.

"I'm ready to get the hell outta here, though. I got, like, two, I got, this next album and two, I got three more albums in my head, conceptualized. Once I get them out, I'm done. [Jeezy album?] We're still doing it. ... [The next albums?] The next one is more like trap music. It's trap music 2017. And the one after that, it's gonna be more like a, uh, love as it pertains to a dope boy. And the one after that, that's my final album. It's called Kill The King. The last album is Kill The King. Simply because ever since my first album, I've put the title of 'King of the South' on me and to make yourself the king is to make you a target. And in chess, the object is to kill the king. So Kill The King is the title of my last album. Will they kill him or will he ride into the sunset happily ever after?" ("The Breakfast Club")

In early January 2017, Tip sent out a friendly reminder about his contribution to trap music.
