Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Inspired by Marvin Gaye's Trouble Man soundtrack, sampled during the intro, T.I.'s eighth album is almost as pieced together as 2010's No Mercy -- a quality somewhat smoothened by a handful of dramatic street-scene skits.

This is a step forward from the MC's previous effort, but it's been six years since the he has made an album that must be heard.
