TI is giving his fans an early Christmas gift of new music. The Atlanta rapper continued his politically driven EP Us or Else with a full-length album version entitled US or Else: Letter To The System.

The album includes nine new songs in addition to the six that were released on the EP back in September. Throughout the project, Tip addresses recent controversial events surrounding America. On the track “Ah No No,” the King of the South refers to his comments regarding Lil Wayne’s “Black Lives Matter” statements.

“For you nosey mother----ers talking about me and Wayne/ Stay your ass out that / I can say that to him, you can’t," he raps.

The 15-track album features appearances from Meek Mill, Quavo, B.o.B, Big K.R.I.T., The-Dream, Killer Mike, and Charlie Wilson, among others. Along with the new album, T.I. has also released a video for “Switchin’ Lanes,” featuring Young Krizzle and Trev Case.

The shady visual relates to a suspenseful legal drama, filled with drugs, guns, surveillance and an encounter with the police. Playing to the intro, "Make sure what you ride for/ is something you would die for."

Letter to the System also contains the socially-conscious references that stood out in his Us or Else EP.

“Believe MLK had a dream for real/ He in heaven, but we dealing with the demons still/ Like an episode of ‘Pinky & the Brain’ for real/ Want to run and then rule everything for real," he raps

You can stream "Us or Else: Letter to the System" on Tidal now.
