[Review] T.I.- F*ck Da City Mixtape

T.I.’s latest mixtape, Fuck Da City Up is a solid effort from T.I. (a.k.a. Clifford Harris), which also features some strong guest emcee appearances from some of the hottest veteran rappers in the rap game, including, Dr. Dre, Pusha T. and Nelly; as well as some young and talented, up and coming rap stars, such as, Future, Meek Mill and Rocko. Moreover the production on T.I.’s Fuck Da City Up mixtape is extremely well rounded and fresh; and includes an all-star cast of the Hip-Hop and Rap industries top hit making producers, including T-Minus, Hit Boy; Dr. Dre and Cut The Check. And in particular, I think that the best produced tracks on T.I.’s Fuck Da City Up mixtape, include; “Hot Wheels” (produced by Canada’s T-Minus); “Popped Off” (produced by Dr. Dre); “Who, What, When” (produced by Toomp); “I’ll Show You” (produced by Cut The Check) and “I See Ghosts”, which was produced by Hit Boy.

Now although T.I. does not have that many great verses on the “Fuck Da City Up” mixtape, T.I. still has a few notable verses, such as, on the first verse on “I’ll Show You” (feat. Pusha T.), where T.I. rhymes: “I got this here, can’t stop this, got this like I got blocks in here, hit the vip, all eyes on me, like they think pac in here. I’m ignorant, belligerent, a gangsta and a gentleman, pay niggas no concern, ain’t no digornio I’m delivering; center of attention, P.O. just threw a wrench in my, plan of execution, I’m demanding retribution”. However, my favourite verse hands down on Fuck Da City Up, is the second verse on “I’ll Show You” from Pusha T., who kills the track per usual. For instance, as Pusha T. rhymes, “I’ll show niggas, better than tell niggas; paint over discussions ’bout push, I never fail niggas; How I’m back jack, listen what hell niggas? This the new god flow, the holy grail niggas; can’t see me book of eli, it’s in braille niggas”.

All in all T.I.’s latest mixtape, Fuck Da City Up is a pretty solid effort from T.I. (a.k.a. Clifford Harris), which is backed up by an all star cast of dope emcees, including Pusha T; Dr. Dre, Meek Mill and Nelly. And in addition the production on Fuck Da City Up is extremely well rounded and fresh, from an all-star cast of Hip-Hop hit makers including, Hit Boy, T-Minus, Dr.Dre and Cut The Check. Now it will be interesting to see if T.I. can top this mixtape on his next album.
