Sure to be one of the most talked about songs on T.I.'s new album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, is "Addresses" where he aims at MCs that have sullied his name. DJ Drama spoke with the Atlanta rapper on his Shade 45 radio show about the song and tried to get him to name names.
"All of that sucka sh-t you broke and now you so upset/All the sh-t you kick around the city get you know respect/I know a rap beef what you want and sh-t I'll feed in/You such a gangsta get some money out the street then/Been in the game for 11 years if I was such a hoe/Ni--a I'da been exposed 10 years ago," spits Tip on "Addresses" (listen here).
There at least a couple of candidates that Tip could have been directing his ire at. Many will say Gucci Mane and Alley Boy. However, although Tip said the disses were direct, they were still veiled.
"It benefits them more than me for me to put that out there," Tip told Drama when asked who the song was specifically aimed at. "So I made it directly to them in a way so only they will know. Therefore so they cannot get any shine off it. I'm a make a prediction here everybody, on Drama's show. There shall be, a few, rappers, that feel they will be benefited by accepting that burden and they will step into that line of fire, knowing that it's not them, but they feel it is better to step into that line of fire, be hit, and receive the benefits that come from being hit by a T.I. bullet."
That's a lyrical bullet, folks. Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, is out Tuesday, December 18th. Listen to T.I. explain the "disregard for the G code" that led to him create "Addresses" below.
Who do you think Tip is talking about?
