I wish I could say "good for him, he deserves it, his album was great". The truth is, it was quite average but (sadly) one of the best releases in 07.

yea ain't no denying he got a heavy girl following.."mainstream" wise he is in the absolute perfect situation possible..the women love the fuck outta him, yet he remains with good street cred so the "street folks" respect him

his album was damn good, far from the best of the year though, but it had bangin tracks (help is coming is 1 of the best hiphop songs this year)

Agreed. TI part was weak.

But anyway, congrats to TI ;D

i believe they are the ones that fuel record sales...i could be wrong though...I do agree that TI Vs Tip was an average record(King>>>TIVs.Tip). However the rap game itself is average right now.

it's a lie to say that dude has skills, plus the fact that 99% of his fans wear high heals

Good for him, one of my fav mainstream artists, now lets see if he make it past 1.5.....he needs to release that Eminem tune if he wants to keep selling.....altho i'd want his next single to be Tell Em I Said That followed by Wanna Be High.....
