Atlanta rap legend has been working on a new album called The Dime Trap for a while, and he’s scored a big-time collaborator for “Dope,” the first single. Dr. Dre produced the track’s lush, luxuriant beat, which samples Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat.” And the Floetry singer and Dre collaborator Marsha Ambrosius sang the hook. It’s strictly smooth-talking dinner-jacket T.I., but he’s almost as good at this sort of regal rap as he is at rapping about shooting your face off. Listen to “Dope” below, via Miss Info.
“Dope” is out now at iTunes.
