#30. T.I. - Trouble Man

Label: Grand Hustle/Atlantic
Release Date: February
Likelihood Of Release: 65%

Up until two years ago, T.I. was working on one of the most successful careers in hip-hop history. But since a series of legal setbacks, he's struggled a bit to regain dominance. Unlike the last time he returned from prison and released his album No Mercy, Tip has been building a buzz with freestyles, guest features, and his recently released Tear Da City Up mixtape. Luckily, his strength is making great commercial records. If he's able to capitalize on that with Trouble Man, Tip could be back atop the rap game in no time. After all, he's done it before.
