In the most unlikely of collabs, the King of the South and the Prince of Pop get together to create what seems like TI’s new single, “Dead & Gone.” The track comes from album Paper Trail, set to be released on September 30th. Tip has released a bunch of tracks so far, all of which are getting heavy rotation and some great critical acclaim. Download below and enjoy, and look for Paper Trail in less than two weeks.

This is a hot trio, I have to admit. I really like the idea of TI rapping over a Just Blaze beat, and I assume he can kill it like most other rappers Justin works with. And Rihanna is always good on collabs – it seems that she never learned how to make a record not a hit. Download below and let us know what you think of TI‘s latest track off Paper Trail. Very positive feel to this track.

perspective‘s two cents:  I fixed the link, and threw in a preview link as well..  Just Blaze is sampling some techno song and it’s driving me crazy that I can’t figure out which one.   It’s kind of intersting how T.I.’s style has evolved from Trap Muzik (his best album hands down) to Paper Trail.  He’s just getting his grown man on as he should.

Four of the most relevant and popular hip-hoppers out have come together for a classic track – entitled “Swagger Like Us.” Kanye West, TI, Jay-Z and Lil’ Wayne! This track is ridiculous. Download link below, and let us know what you guys think of this collaboration over an M.I.A. sample.

 perspective edit: I updated the link, so that you can snag this track. Plus I tossed in a preview link.  I’m going to have to disagree with Dan, and say this track is a little dissapointing.  I think my expectations were to high after hearing about the existence of this track.  Still worth snagging.
