They say that when God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window. Lil Wayne was finally locked up on Rikers Island today (after a series of delays that made us wonder if perhaps God didn’t much want to close the door on Weezy). But hip-hop fans, do not dismay! After a year behind bars on weapons charges (the same fate that befell Wayne; c’mon, dudes), rapper T.I. is transitioning back into the public eye. His first single, the appropriately-titled “I’m Back,” is loose on the internets… even if T.I. himself is still in a halfway house for another couple weeks. Give it a listen:

What do you think, Mixers? Glad to have T.I. back? You can download the track for yourself off his official website, and don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments!
