Details Release Date: Sep 30, 2008; Lead Performance: T.I.; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

T.I.'s sixth CD Paper Trail is full of self-reflection laced with gangsta bravado. He's haunted by the shooting death of his best friend, concerned that he'll meet a similar fate, and uncertain about his future (which is likely to include a stint in prison for felony weapons charges). Despite his often earnest lyrics, the radio-friendly party anthems, flirty come-ons, collaborations with A-list pals (Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Justin Timberlake), and outstanding production prove this beleaguered bad boy still knows how to have a good time.
