Later this month, T.I. is back with his new album Paperwork, and he’s sounded extra hungry on early singles like “About The Money,” with Young Thug, and “Turn It.” The album’s title track, though, is a different story. It’s a laid-back, soulful memoir, a fond, grizzled remembrance of a dangerous youth. The song has a weird off-kilter beat and a chorus from Pharrell in total falsetto mode. It’s probably best if you don’t think of this song as a partial “Blurred Lines” reunion, and if you instead think of it as a partial reunion of the people who put together Tip’s 2001 single “I’m Serious.” (Where is Beenie Man on this thing, anyway?) Listen to “Paperwork” below.
