Label: Grand Hustle/Atlantic Records Worst Song: "Castle Walls" f/ Christina Aguilera
OUT OF STEPLAZY LYRICS
At one time, Tip was running around telling folks that No Mercy—then titled King Uncaged—was an album that was going to be recognized as being just as important as 2Pac's post-prison opus, All Eyez On Me. Like Pac, T.I. was coming off a highly-publicized jail stint and looking to regain his place at the top of the game. But, of course, he ran into more legal troubles shortly before the album was set to be released, forcing Atlantic Records to piece together an album filled with awkward collaborations that wasn't cohesive at all. The only thing that album succeeded in doing was having absolutely no mercy on our ears.
