With a string of pop radio hits under his belt, Atlanta’s T.I. has long been a key player in hip hop’s ever-increasing hold on Top 40 radio. Known for his combination of trap music and infectious pop hooks, the rapper released three No. 1 albums and a slew of chart-topping singles in the 2000s, including “Whatever You Like” and “Live Your Life (feat. Rihanna)” from 2008 album Paper Trail. For his eighth studio album, 2012’s Trouble Man II: Heavy Is the Head, the rapper enlisted a wide range of collaborators, earning another No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart with hits featuring Lil Wayne (“Ball”) and Cee Lo Green (“Hello”). On the road for his 2013 America’s Most Wanted Tour, T.I. has been treating ticket buyers to danceable live concerts full of career-spanning sets that include new songs from his late-2013 album Trouble Man II: He Who Wears the Crown.
