T.I. & Young Thug Are After the Paper on ‘About the Money’
Young Thug may have irked many an old rap head with his unique style (in and outside of music), but T.I. isn’t deterred, especially when it comes to that paper. Looking to bridge the gap between Atlanta’s old guard and its current generation, the King of the South calls on the city’s future crown bearer for his latest track, ‘About the Money.’
Premiered by DJ Whoo Kid and DJ MLK on Shade 54 last night (May 19), the song features whip-ready production from another of the A’s hotshots, producer London On Da Track. Despite this being billed as Tip’s record, Thugga Thugga leads off with a distinctive verse while Tip mostly handles the hook duties. He even injects a little more drawl and cadence into his delivery, which you could say is the influence of Young Thug.
Whatever the style and whoever he’s working with, though, the message remains the same for Clifford Harris: “If it ain’t about the money / Don’t be blowing me up, n—a, I ain’t getting up / If it ain’t about the money / Ain’t no use in you ringing my line, stop wasting my time.”
‘About the Money’ is the second new release from T.I. this month following the DJ Toomp-produced ‘Turn It,’ as he puts the finishing touches on his upcoming album, ‘Paperwork.’ Hit that paper chase with Tip and Thug below.
