I believe that this is by far T.I.’s best and most consistent project to date. It’s sadly the only one I revisit regularly.
Many consider this to be T.I.'s Magnum Opus and going into it I was really excited... But after coming out, I was disappointed. While this was definitely TIP's first mainstream push, I found the end half of the album better than the first half. The only perfect song on this album was Top Back but Ride Wit Me is close too
I still don't think this reaches the quality of Trap Muzik just because of how absurdly tightly-wound that LP was (no fat; none), but this is a helluva album to have be your second-best.

TI's flow here: absolutely effortless. He was born to make this album the same way he was born to wear all of his hats all the way on the back of his head. Do not skip this record.
