Il cite Outkast, Goodie Mob, Young Thug, Future et 21 Savage.
Ah, Americans like to do rankings. Joe Budden gave his own concerning the GOAT and crowned Jay-Z, The Game has just unveiled his top Los Angeles albums where we saw Lloyd Banks give his top 5 of the best punchliners. Today, it’s the turn of TI, a rap legend from Atlanta, to give his list of the best ATL albums.
The King of the South has proposed a TOP 5 which should provoke a lively debate. He was hosted by Just Blaze and Katty Customs on their new show Fresh Pair from Uproxx. TI was therefore asked about his five best rap albums from Atlanta. Il a cité Outkast, Goodie Mob, Young Thug, Future et 21 Savage. Curiously, he did not quote himself when it is “in general” the norm to propose one of his projects in this type of top, especially since he has the material for this with opuses like “Trap Muzik “, “Urban Legend” or “King”.
“Outkast”[Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik]”, Goodie Mob “Soul Food”, Thugger “Slime Season”, Future “Dirty Sprite”, 21 Savage, his last album. 21 Savage, the one where there is the track “A Lot” with J. Cole.”
Atlanta rap has largely dominated the global game in recent years and TI certainly had a hard time choosing but he seems to have already thought about it because he didn’t really hesitate. What’s interesting about his top is that he doesn’t get into it and he gives a pretty broad view of what ATL can offer in terms of production and different styles and it shows the evolution and the dynamism of Atlanta over the past few years.
