No Mercy was supposed to be T.I.’s first album after getting out of prison — until he was recently hauled back for violating probation. The self-proclaimed ''King of the South'' addresses his troubles on tracks like ''Welcome to the World'' and ''Castle Walls.'' He remains unrepentant, though: On ''Get Back Up,'' he arrogantly apologizes for being human rather than for his crimes. That crown must be getting heavy. B
