T.I. Returns With Triumphant 'I'm Flexin' Single: Listen
The King of the South gets uncaged on "I'm Flexin'," the triumphant new single that debuted on T.I.'s official website on Friday (Sept. 30). The song, which features fellow Southern hip-hop heavyweight Big K.R.I.T., arrives one day after T.I. was released from an Atlanta halfway house after serving a 10-month prison sentence.
"Feds want me back behind that wall/it's the only place that I can't go," T.I. sneers in the first verse of the track, which finds the rapper operating in "Big Sh*t Poppin'" mode by combining bullet-time rhyming with a slick electric guitar riff. Other lyrical highlights of "I'm Flexin'," which will hit iTunes on Tuesday (Oct. 4), "MC's ain't dope enough/I still split your coconut" and "The A is mine, no questions asked/The king's home, now the best is back."
T.I. has been busy since ending his prison sentence for a probation violation: along with this song release, Tip has been featured on Young Jeezy's new single, "F.A.M.E.," as well as a spot on Future's "Magic (Remix)." The song also marks T.I.'s first solo single since "That's All She Wrote," from last year's lackluster "No Mercy."
