The release of T.I.’s forthcoming album Paperwork is just around the corner, so as a precursor of what’s to come, he’s shared the Pharrell-featuring title track. “Paperwork” has Pharrell taking care of the hook as T.I. raps over a soulful beat with a flow reminiscent of Atlanta collective Ghetto Mafia’s “For The Good Times (Straight From The Dec).” For those who are curious as to how this fits in with previously released songs like “No Mediocre,” Tip explains that this cut “pretty much kinda sums up the tone of the album,” comparing it to “the score to a movie.”
Paperwork drops October 21. In the meantime, listen to “Paperwork” below.
