T.I. acknowledges his shortcomings on his new Dime Trap record “The Amazing Mr. Fuck Up.”
On the heartfelt track featuring Victoria Monet, Tip addresses some of his screw-ups with wife Tiny Harris (who also appears on the artwork). “It’s amazing all the shit I done, Such examples I’ve been setting for my son,” he raps. “All she did was stay down and have my kid, All the time just to realize that I ain’t shit.”
“[This is] the first time I musically addressed some of the challenges and transgressions that I have had as a husband,” Tip tells Zane Lowe. “I’ve always kind of shied away from even speaking on those types of topics in my music. I felt like this is a time where the music is dope. I just felt that I had to lay it out, I had to put my cards face up on the table.”
The Grand Hustle CEO’s tenth album “Dime Trap” arrives this Friday (Oct. 5) featuring appearances by Young Thug, Meek Mill, Yo Gotti, Jeezy, Teyana Taylor and more.
