Last week was total frenzy when TI’s much-anticipated album “No Mercy” (previously titled “King Uncaged”) dropped. The album is projected to hit up to 135k – 145k in its first week of launch, and seems like it’s doing really well. TI wrote a thank you note for his fans just in time for the album launch:
“So here it is…NO MERCY, the most honest and intimate installment of my life story as promised. Hope y’all enjoy it and it lives up to the very high standards I’ve set for myself or anyone who’s to be considered one of the best. I must admit it takes a lot to go through as much as I have and still keep the love in your heart and in your art. But at the end of the day, if that’s what it takes to produce the music that keeps the world of hip-hop evolving on it’s axis….Then even the lowest of the lows of my life was all worth it. Thanks again for your prayers, your time and attention. And remember….It does’nt matter how long it’ll be before the next time you see me. What matters is that I’ll be a better man before that time comes. The longer I sit, the smarter I get.
I’d like to give a vey special thank you to all the fans who’ve been writing me and lifting my spirits everyday. I read all of them. Although I would never be able to write you all back…I’d like to list as many of you individualy as I can and thank the others collectively. It’s a relief to know that there still are people who see a man with a life and not just another headline in the news. Most of you sound very concerned and optimistic at the same time about my situation. Let me assure you all that I am deffenitely keeping my head up. I don’t consider myself done by far. Also many of you are convinced as I am that God has a plan for me that he’s preparing me for.”
The album’s track list includes Tip’s collaborations with music’s heavyweights such as Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown, Eminem, Drake, Young Dro and many more.
Today marks one day before we finally see how well the album is doing in its first week after the launch. Will it surpass projections or fall flat? We’ll have to see. Meanwhile, we have some really cool brand new stuff from TI’s AKOO Clothing line for you to see -and get:
