New Song: T.I., ‘Like That’

Check out T.I.’s latest, ‘Like That.’

T.I. has been hard at work on his eighth studio album, Trouble Man, and we’ve got the 411 on his latest single, “Like That.” As a follow up to T.I.’s “Love This Life,” “Like That” is a high-energy, uptempo rap banger that speaks to T.I.’s life and the toils of the rap game.

Listen to T.I.’s “Like That” after the jump. 

Produced by Lil C and Mars, “Like That” sounds totally hard-core, but we can also see it doing pretty well at radio. Lyrically, T.I. sounds kinda pissed while he contemplates the expectations placed upon him: “They want that super gutter ignorant/ That new ghetto belligerent/ Authentic grip flippin’, dope boy trap.”

In between filming his hit VH1 reality show “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle,” Tip’s also making time to stop by our very own “RapFix Live” today at 4 p.m.! He’ll sit down with Sway and talk about his upcoming album. Speaking of Trouble Man, T.I. told MTV News during an interview in January, “We got a lot of hot, old-school, vintage T.I. records on there… I’m talking like gutter, gangsta, intellectual ignorance, hard-core stadium s***. But at the same time, we got those over-the-top crossover records as well, big features and whatnot we plan on putting into play.” Vintage T.I. plus gutter gangsta intellectual? We have absolutely no clue what that means. Sounds great! Also, it’s Tip, guys — it’s not like there was actually a shot we’d be disappointed. T.I.’s Trouble Man drops Sept. 4.
