and to prevent people from having a real tracklist to make bootlegs from. the itunes tracklist of Graduation had 3 skits on it, until it released.

Dis album is a str8 massive commercial attempt. He got some of the best r&b/pop singers in the world and 4 of the best rappers in the world in his album.
His label did a good job of promotin all da songs so people are already familiar with most the album and most have reached the charts. They so smart they told Jay-Z to have SLU has his first single so it can get more play but its on Paper Trail first. He copied the Lollipop sound and went to the hottest hitmaker Rihanna for a single.

In most of these tracks, T.I. is barely rappin or apart of his own sh*ts.
Usually artists don't let someone else spaz all over their songs. But T.I. dis cuz he desperate for sales.

In case yall didnt notics, most of the best songs yall say in this album barely got T.I. really rappin.


If yall aint realize this, The last 2 minutes of each of these songs and 70% of the song got the guest takin over:

-Dead and Gone (JT)
-Slide Show (john legend)
-Live Your Life (Rihanna)
-My Life, your Ent (Usher)
-SLU

Whatever You Like was singing the whole time.

And of course, On Top of the Word featured Ludacris schoolin the fuc out of T.I. Theater of the Mind gonna be a classic.

The Album is about 7.5-8/10

Cons:
TI is not a witty clever type of rapper ..He's more of a Real Talk artist.
Which is not a bad thing but I have yet to hear a TI Line that made go Oh-sh*t.
He Still punches in a lot (Records verses in parts instead of one continuous take)
Whatever you like is still probably the worst song I heard this year.

Pros:
TI knows how to pick a good beat.
Geust Appearances were good and for the most part they worked.
The album was well rounded yet still remained cohesive
TI may not be a brilliant lyricist but he Can flow for sure.

In those commercial songs T.I. don't even got 40% of the song. He got a limited amount but what was dumb by him and it should fuc the album ratings up is all those songs got the guest doing da last 2 minutes of da fucin song. For most people in the mainstream, it mite be enjoyable to listen to cats like Usher, John Legend, Justin, Rihanna sing the whole song but that fucs up Paper Trail.

But from the start T.I. and his label main focus was to CAPITALIZE on the publicity and buzz from the trouble then go all out commercially. Overall, it should work wit da sales cuz T.I. career seemed like it was going downhill after ti vs. tip. But they prob planned all dis sh*t out.

Overall dis sh*t a disappointment for T.I. and should be the downfall of him cuz he cant always depend on singing and having rihanna or jt save his sh*t.

I dont see why people are hating on TI for having JT, Rihanna, and Usher on his album.

First of all they are only singing the hook. Same as Game cd where he had mostly R&B singers on the hooks.


TI came hard on this cd going back to his Urban Legend and Trap Muzik days

Dont be fooled by the features he came correct on this album.

Im Illy
Every chance I get
Ready for Whatever
Dead and Gone
On Top of the World
You aint missing nothing
Swagger like us

Besides like 2-4 songs (pr0no Star, Whatever you like)this cd is a solid a.ss effort and a huge step over TI vs TIP probably better then King even


at haters tryna to dismiss an album after Whatever you like

Paper Trail only got a few songs wit t.i. spittin for a good amt of the song.
On the other hand, the person t.i. used to be similar to (not no more after he went pop) got a whole album full of those songs just listed. Basically this album should sell reasonable, maybe top 3-5 of year best sell rap. But the ratings of da album is trash. (bout 2.75/5)
