    Paper trail was his biggest album, he should of stayed in that lane and never looked back. But he's been trying so hard to maintain his street image and going on anti snitch campaigns instead of trying to make Hits. Idk why rappers run from pop success instead of embracing it. Anyone else agree?

    No T.I. “Fell off” because that’s literally what happens to 99% of rappers and musicians. Trap Muzick came out in 2003. Was he expected to still be “on” 15+ years later. And pop success is the quickest way to fall off because it’s the hardest to replicate.

    He fell off because he went to jail and lost his "it" factor on making hit songs. Prison rust did him in, followed by him becoming a reality star. Hard to maintain a "trap muzik" personality on record when we see you're now a square family guy on VH1.

    Its actually the opposite. He doesnt try hard to come off as a street nikka at all.

    He tries hard to come off as a big word using, educated, political family guy nowadays. Wtf are you talking bout? :heh:

    he fell off because he went to prison at the height of his popularity then dropped a subpar album when he got out.


    nothing more, nothing less.

    i think the general public just lost interest. his music still has trap elements but its way more mature. he put out an album like us or else years before the current climate. his music isnt much different than jay z's.

    He fell off cause this is a young man's profession. As simple as that.

    Only three things guaranteed in this life; death, taxes and :flabbynsick:

    Started getting bigger bags from other things besides music. Had a better run than most but he's like other mid tier rappers a good 3-5 yrs and parlay it into movies, business, podcasts etc.

    Yeah we really need stop with this falling off shyt and start celebrating our legends for what they did. GunsNRoses and them can still sell out stadiums 30+ years after their debut. We don't let a rapper get past 10 years and 5 albums before we say they're washed.

    I don’t think y’all understand that in music everybody falls off at some point. TI had a great run but he came out in the early 2000’s. That man ain’t trying to keep no street image. :mjtf:
    He’s doing podcasts and reality TV :unimpressed:
