On August 19th 2003, T.I dropped one of the most important albums of not only his career but for the south as well. That album was Trap Muzik.
Lead by singles “24’s”, “Be Easy”, “Rubber Band Man”, and “Let’s Get Away” this album took over airwaves, launched careers and gave Atlanta another new sound and perspective.
David Banner’s career officially starts with Rubber Band Man’s Success [Not to Disregard “Like A Pimp” in any way] DJ Toomp and Jazze Pha strengthen their resumes and Kanye West ventures outside of the Roc umbrella to lend assistance.
The album also sparked major controversy with album cut “Kingofdasouth” which T.I staked his claim and brought beef, fear and respect from his peers in the south. 10 Years later, Tip is still King of The South and we all learned from Lil Flip about why you should NOT question that.
Is this album a Classic? I believe so. In the New Millennium of Hip-Hop this album is ULTRA IMPORTANT and well as for the New South Movement. The idea and concept of “Trap Muzik” is why Jeezy, Gucci, Ross and Yo Gotti have careers. That can’t be denied.
So celebrate this great moment and album in hip-hop….IT’S THE KING BISH!!!! Thank You T.I. for this great contribution to hip-hop music.
