T.I., Kanye, Kid Cudi Welcome You to Their World in ‘No Mercy’ Leak
Last week, the tracklist to T.I.'s 'No Mercy' -- the album he will release while behind bars for 11 months for violating his probation -- revealed collaborations with two of hip-hop's bestsellers, Eminem and Kanye West. And, like magic, the dark and reflective Eminem feature 'That's All She Wrote' leaked soon after. Now, the West collaboration, which also features fellow G.O.O.D. artist Kid Cudi, is streaming at various URLS.
More saturated and fast-paced than its predecessor, production on the track 'Welcome to the World' adds a stutter to T.I.'s verses. Kanye and Cudi help T.I. give a dose of reality to the "fast money, fast cars, big diamonds" lifestyle. West also takes a line or two to address Illuminati rumors. "Where do I start," he raps. "People ask me s--- about Illuminati/ First off, f--- that man / When they think a n---- is stupid rich, people just start coming up with stupid s--- man, s--- I can never predict."
Give the track a listen below. With T.I.'s 'No Mercy' dropping Dec. 7, West's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' and Nicki Minaj's 'Pink Friday' out this week, hip-hop is looking to give country a run for the Hot 100 this holiday season.
