Just a few months after his Us or Else EP release, T.I. dropped the surprise 15-track project Us Or Else: Letter to the System overnight on Tidal.

The second installment (which features a few songs from the Us or Else EP) is a continuation of T.I.’s political stance, with tracks like “Warzone,” “I Swear” and “We Will Not.”

Collectively, the projects are a musical response to social injustices, police brutality, the Black Lives Matter movement, and other topics that resonate with listeners. An additional theme on Us or Else: Letter to the System includes religion, opening with “I Believe” and concluding with “Take Da Wheel." T.I. also reflects on street life and past hardships on “Here We Go/Don’t Fall for That.”

There are a ton of collaborations  on the release including Meek Mill, Charlie Wilson, B.o.B, Big Krit, Quavo, The-Dream and Killer Mike. Check out Us or Else: Letter to the System exclusively on Tidal.
