The self-titled ‘King of the South’ is back at it with his latest single “Go Get It.’
The single is from T.I.’s upcoming eighth studio album “Trouble Man.”
“Go Get It” comes off the heels of the Grand Hustle frontman’s first single “Love This Life.”
The rapper, born Clifford Harris, is aiming to get his music career back on track after a series of prison stints hindered his career. Bad decisions nearly destroyed the king’s empire.
T.I. was arrested and charged nearly five years ago in February 2008 with possession of three unregistered machine guns and two silencers. He was later sentenced to a year of house arrest and 1,500 hours of community services after pleading guilty to U.S. federal weapons charges.
In March 2009, T.I. was sentenced to one year and one day in prison for federal weapons charges. The “Swagger Like Us” rapper originally faced 10 years in prison, but had it reduced after accepting a plea bargain.
T.I. was released from prison in December 2009 and sent to a halfway house. He was released from the halfway house in March 2010, but was arrested again in September 2010 on drug charges. He went back to prison in November 2010 for violating his probation to serve an 11-month sentence.
All seemed well for T.I. after he was released once again from prison on Aug. 31, 2011. He even released a statement via Twitter saying, “The storm is over & da sun back out. IT’S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!!”
But the controversial rapper was sent back to jail in less than 48 hours. There was issue with the rapper traveling to a halfway house facility in a luxury bus with unauthorized persons, according to a Bureau of Prisons report obtained by CNN.
T.I.’s album “Trouble Man” will be the artist’s latest effort since his legal woes. It is uncertain whether he can regain the crown he wore during his reign. But the rapper’s latest single may put the “Kang” back on his throne.
But we certainly hope T.I.P. is just playing with his rap line “Still ride with that 44/
Don’t let my P-O know.” We sincerely hope…
Trouble Man is set to be released later this year.
