The L.I.B.R.A. Tracklist:
It took a while but this is by far his best work since paper trail. Maybe shorten the length a bit, some of the tracks were clearly filler, save it for a deluxe version. Definitely Tip at his best, if you don’t like the album you either just don’t like him as a person or you haven’t left 2000’s era music which is fine but it’s impressive to me how he keeps his sound while simultaneously showing the new school he still has his fast ball. Hypno is a standout and needs more recognition.
I've been listening to T.I. ever since I'm Serious. While this album does have some good tracks, the numerous skits and filler material make this mediocre. I expected Lil Baby to have a better verse than what he did, and some of the features drag down the quality of the album. This is not T.I.'s best work.
still has great word play and delivery and the tracks each gave you something diffrent didnt seem like one long as song that you would just get lost listening to could do without some of the features tho.
This is a classic. You can ride to this all The way through. TI is the best rapper to ever do it in my opinion. Tupac is the only rapper I put close to him. Doesn’t matter if you like the content or not the music is jamming.lets not forget its entertainment, no different from tv.
As people put reviews on here, the best thing is that you can actually sample this and you can make your own opinion on if you like it or not. For this album, I think it is a great album... the King is Back...
Long time T.I. fan here. Moment I heard this album I liked it. I also like Paperwork and the similarities were instantly apparent. Aiming for a hit with Young Thug (“About the Money” vs. “Ring”), check. Introduction of female rappers (Iggy Azalea vs. Tokyo Jetz, Rapsody, etc.), check. Track with Rick Ross (“You Can Tell How I Walk” vs. “Respect the Code” ), check. Bunch of R&B guest spots (Chris Brown, Usher, the Dream vs. John Legend, Jeremih), check. Socially conscious song (“New American Anthem” vs. “How I Feel”), check. Ballad for homies dead and gone (“Let Your Heart Go” vs. “We Did It Big”), check. Even the colors on the album covers are similar (off-yellow and black). Bottom line: If you enjoyed Paperwork, then you might want to give this one a listen. It’s a calculated but high-quality production. It’s what you would expect from a veteran hip-hop act like T.I. at this stage of the game. T.I. is still the Legend of Atlanta, still the King of the South, and still the Godfather of Trap. The L.I.B.R.A. makes that claim and does it in fine fashion.
It's not as good one the first listen as it is on the second or third. Ms. Pat is Hilarious and Phantone Blue is easily my favorite track followed by Family Connect (which is DOPE AF) & Thank God. We Did it Big follows in a close third. Like I previously stated, this is an album you have to listen to about two or three times for it to sit right in the memory bank.
Been down wit TIP since I’m Serious & this album even tho I wasn’t checkin for it is borderline whack it’s a few tracks like family connect that bang but far as riding out classic TIP go back to paper trail or troubleman I hope this gets better with time but rn issa no go
I’m such huge T.I Fan but what a huge disappointment this album is. No head bangers drop the top type songs. No Jeezy? No Chamillionaire? No Ludacris? I mean the album lacks a lot of producing the beats are not great. Let’s try again next year.
After listening a couple of times I’ll say it’s a great album. Some songs TI would be going off, and all of a sudden some terrible rapper would kill(in a bad way) the track. I would’ve liked it more with fewer songs with more TI verses.
