T.I. On The Grind Since His Release
From Patchwerk Studios: SEPTEMBER 2011 SESSION REPORT
Rapper T.I. just completed his 11-month prison sentence on September 29th, and he’s already dropping musical heat. On Friday (September 30), the Atlanta rapper released his first post-prison single, “I’m Flexin‘”, featuring Big K.R.I.T. The song was originally due for a Monday release, but instead, fans got an end-of-the-week treat. The multitalented K.R.I.T., whose debut album’s release has been pushed back to next year, handles the song’s chorus and production, while T.I. delivers three verses with a double-time flow, using the song to assert that he is officially back. Since his return to a halfway house to finish his federal sentence, Tip has appeared on songs with 2 Chainz (“Spend It” remix), Future (“Magic” remix) and Young Jeezy (“F.A.M.E.“). But “I’m Flexin‘,” which was released via Tip’s TrapMuzik.com website, is the first song credited as his own. Most recently, T. I. was at PatchWerk Studios having songs mastered by PatchWerk engineer Kenny Mixx.
