For the past few weeks, T.I. has been teasing his Instagram followers by posting the number “911” over and over. It all leads up to today, with the surprise release of a new five-track EP called Da’ Nic. Sadly, its not a concept record about Tip working as an opium-addicted doctor in an early-1900s New York hospital. Fortunately, though, this motherfucker bangs. On first listen, the EP finds T.I. in straight-up take-no-prisoners mode, finding a guttural swagger that’s been hard to find on his past few records. The EP features the masterful new single “Check, Run It,” as well as “Peanut Butter Jelly,” a track with Young Thug and Young Dro. The EP serves as the precursor to a new album called The Dime Trap, and you can stream all five tracks below.
Da’ Nic is out now. The Dime Trap is coming later this year.
