“This is the most significant return from incarceration that the game has had since then.”
With T.I. appearing to be in top form since his release from prison, the rapper is already making bold statements in relation to his upcoming album, King Uncaged.
Referencing his time behind bars, T.I.P. is comparing his next project to All Eyez On Me and how Tupac Shakur was after he was released from prison.
Making his face more public, the rapper spoke with Rolling Stone on his release and wanting to deliver work comparable to 2Pac.
“Just given the enormous success of that project, everyone's expecting the same results. I just want to meet the expectations, if not surpass them.”
He also spoke on what type of sound to expect from King Uncaged.
“Some songs talk about my time in prison — how I was affected by that, the way I've grown from that, things I see now that I may have not seen then.
Sometimes I talk about love, some songs I talk about life, some songs I talk about me being the shit on every level.”
With the King making his official mainstream return in August, the bar had been set high by T.I. and time away can only ensure that he can deliver on his words.
