Editorial Reviews

Trouble Man boasts a sterling guest list of names such as R. Kelly, CeeLo Green, Andre 3000, Pink and production from longtime collaborators Pharell and DJ Toomp. Anyone doubting that a black man as wealthy and diversely accomplished as T.I. can still be an motivational voice for the disenfranchised in a recession-struck America, need to consume his singles: the T-Minus-produced single "Go Get It" and Lil Wayne featured "Ballin'." And those with the baseless notion that the Trouble Man is too removed by Hollywood to channel the Rubberband Man need just one listen of the electric "Trap Back Jumpin'" to relearn the truth. Then again, all aforementioned disbelievers are most likely the same folks who didn't believe the Southern crown would land in Bankhead, Atlanta.

4.0 out of 5 stars Trouble Man = Pretty Good! December 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I had to put how I feel about this album in one sentence, it would be this: Trouble Man is a hard hitting album that doesn't let up, and because of that it might be worth buying just a few tracks instead of the whole album.

I grew up loving rap artists like, Dre, Tupac, C-Lo, Ice-Cube and like current artists like Lupe Fiasco, Common and Atmosphere. One thing I liked about TI's previous work was that his music was like a combination of good modern southern rap and old school 90's hip hop.

After listening to the first song on this album I was pretty excited, as "The Introduction" is a great hard hitting song with A LOT of soul. It's actually probably my favorite song on the album. It encompasses TI's troubles and issues in the past few years and how he has worked through them and come out on the other side. I love how it talks about Rap history as well as his history in the game.

TI is quoted on Wikipedia as saying that this album is "harder" then most other stuff coming out right now. He is right, and as he also says it is a creative album, but when listened to all the way through the melodies are quite similar, the bass rumbles in a similar fashion, and his rapping starts to sound monotone, especially when compared to his other albums. My two favorites are "Paper Trail" and "Urban Legend." Both of those albums have great tracks on them, like "Motivation," "Chillin With my B&T*H, "I'm Illy," "Get Loose" and "Live Your Life." I don't believe there is a hit on this album that will find the success that "Live your life" did as there's nothing that gets me tapping my feet on this as do many of the tracks on his other albums.

I will say that the tracks I find the best on "Trouble Man" are in his collaborations with other artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word, WOW! December 18, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
If you r a T.I.fan and like his family oriented reality show, like me, & like his previous albums, you should love this album. Almost every track is banging. There are many standout tracks on the album detailing his life & recently, his troubles. I am not going to go over every track like many, as you can sample each track before buying, I will just say this album is in my top 5 of the year hip hop albums. T.I. has a flow that is really appealing to me, so I highly recommend this.

Format:Audio CD
T.I. embraces his `troubles' on his 8th studio effort, 2012's Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head [Explicit], which proceeds 2010's underwhelming No Mercy. T.I. released multiple singles to various digital outlets prior to the official release of the album. The overall results of Trouble Man is that T.I. delivers some solid cuts, sounding much more compelling than his previous effort. The biggest drawbacks include some less necessary cuts and the effort's extreme length (70 minutes).

On introductory cut "The Introduction", producer DJ Toomp samples Marvin Gaye's "Trouble Man". The sample foreshadows the narrative of the album. DJ Toomp's production characterizes the southern rap idiom intact with solid production work with buttressing hip-hop drum programming, present bass line, and southern rap organ. T.I. Scores memorable moments, most notably the catchy hook which both asserts and confirms T.I.'s status as a trouble man.

"G Season" featuring Meek Mill essentially writes off fake folk who aren't true gangstas but just wannabes. Cardiak delivers exceptional production work noted for its malicious brass and hard drums. T.I. asserts himself with a fiery delivery while Meek Mill complements him well on a sound second verse. "G Season" proves a strong start for Trouble Man.

DJ Toomp's top-notch production returns on the anthemic "Trap Back Jumpin", easily T.I.'s attempt at 2006's "What You Know". T.I. asserts it is time for him to show how things are really done, hence his addictive, aggressive hook: "It's time to get trap back jumpin/get [...] back poppin [...], I show these sucka [...] how it go..." Always on autopilot, T.I.

4.0 out of 5 stars The return of TIP December 22, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Many feel that TI lost his vibe quite a bit with No Mercy. That can arguably be an honest discussion. But with No Mercy, TI was in a totatlly different place than he is now (due to his actions of course). Now he is a little more free with less restrictions and it definitely shows in this album. If you are a diehard fan, than you will realize that with Trouble Man, there is the reintroduction of TIP. This isn't TI, but T.I.P.

I like the collaborations on this album. Ceelo can do almost no wrong for me musicality wise. I think people are forgetting his background in the music industry, but it was cool seeing what a collabo between the two of these individuals would turn out like in the song Hello.

Guns and Roses. Can I say wow at this song? The collaboration between TI and Pink seems unheard of, maybe impossible, but it works. TI takes a lot of risks with this album, but with solid lyrics and beats, and unique but relevant features like A$AP Rocky, Ceelo Green, P!nk, R Kelly and Akon, this is a return of a man many were waiting for.
