Album:
King Uncaged

It’s certainly been a busy week for T.I. Defusing a suicide attempt, being sentenced to an 11 month stay in jail, and now a new, incredibly appropriate new single. On Get Back Up, the Atlanta-bred emcee reflects on his actions - apologizing for them and stating “I’m only human y’all”. He also interpolates Cee-Lo‘s classic verse from, Git Up, Get Out when he states, “I admit, yeah I done some done sh*t/ Disappointed everybody, I know/ Try not to hold that against me though.” Lyrics are the real highlight of the cut, as T.I. seems to prove time and time again if he wants to gets serious behind the mic, he’s still among the best. The production is handled by The Neptunes, who provide an introspective canvas for T.I. through subtle snares and electronically smooth synths. Chris Brown, who knows a thing or two about trying to recover from a public scandal, also assists TIP, singing a heavily produced hook that helps bolster the sincere tone of the song. I think I speak for everybody when I say get home soon Tip. Let’s hear the King Uncaged already.
