“Paperwork: The Motion Picture” Album Review by Blade Brown
Album: “Paperwork: The Motion Picture“
The album starts off with a bang. From the moment “KING” starts, you can feel the energy building into something special. The track is strong, aggressive and a great way to start off the album. Its the only song on the album to not feature another artist, and T.I. knocks it out of the park. Every other song on the 15 track album has a feature. After the Jeezy assisted “G Shit“, we get into the Young Thug featured “About The Money“. The song took a while to catch, but its now one of the biggest club records of the year.
The next few records, including the Iggy Azalea featured “No Mediocre” are your standard album cuts. But once we get to the Boosie Badazz assisted “Jet Fuel” is when the album hits its stride. The album’s title track, “Paperwork: The Motion Picture” is a solid track in which TIP talks about being certified in the streets since his childhood. The track “Stay” may or may not be about the relationship his has with his wife, but its a great record either way. “At Ya Own Risk” features r&b superstar Usher and is one of the best cuts on the album. Another standout is “Light Em Up“, an ode to Doe B who was killed in December of 2013.
Overall, this is a solid entry into the catalog of T.I. Although it takes some time to get going, the album delivers when the goods when it does.
