Throwback Thursday’s : T.I. Edition

T.I. feat. Beanie Man – I’m Serious

This was the first time I heard a T.I. I had no idea what the hell I was looking at but I knew home boy was a superstar. I bought the cd at Sam Goody for 16.99 ( I know right!?) while others passed on this future Atlantic artist. You nigga’s didn’t pay attention until 24′s and Trap Muzik but by that time you nigga’s were broke. Catch a slue of video’s featuring and staring T.I. after the jump.

T.I. – Dope Boyz

This was hailed as T.I.’s first single but I’ve never seen it until 2day. Crazy this has been more than a decade and the only thing that looks different on ol’ boy is the McGrady jersey.

T.I. – 24′s

Bonecrusher feat. Killer Mike and T.I. – Never Scared

Memphis Bleek feat. Trick Daddy and T.I. – Round Here

T.I. – Rubberband Man

    Beats tough and the T.I. was plenty entertaining, but if you saw superstar off this track and I didnt then G-bless u. I suspect that you probably relied more on your psychic abilities then your ears. Much as we all like to say we saw it coming, and accuse others of sleeping, sometimes people just weren’t that good back then and are a helluva lot better now. The BEENIE MAN dance move is priceless. I never saw this video. Good looks HYMN. Great choice of a throwback.

    I did see it coming. It was star power to me. You have to remember the climate in music back in 2001 and the fact that I was 15. Lyrics like
    “Now can you picture this, young,
    pompus, African son of a bitch
    Labelled as anything less than
    “the shit”, I can’t see it”

    &

    “To play me, ba-by, hey he,
    gone need a track from God
    featuring Jesus or Jay-Z”

    If you listen to the album there is more but the visuals and co-sign from the Neptunes was enough for me. That’s around the time I thought Jason Kidd and Anfernee Hardaway were the best backcourt in basketball EVER! Young feeble minds. Only difference is I was right about T.I. and wrong about the Suns.

    Oh and count that the only thing ppl were listening to were Wyclef, Dre and Jay-z’s vol. 2 for someone else to captivate my attention was pretty astounding. I mean com’on I was 15!

    Ok ok ok. You win on this point. p.s. the best point guard ever is MAGIC #32 JOHNSON hands down. All you athletic points are everything but 6’9, with High Definition court vision, a clutch jumper, and the uncanny ability to make your teammates better.

    I remember I bough “I’m Serious” off the strength of a review in XXL. They gave him a decent rating, and talked about how he was the king of the south on his first album. I figured I would give him a shot. It was tight though. Didnt really like all the Neptunes songs. My favorites were the more hood songs like “Heavy Chevys”
