I've got right into alot of his singles recently but I'm not sure whether I want to purchase a full album from him.

Anyone here know if they're any good?

Is that because the material is poor or that the material just isn't mainstream?

I have Paper Trail and I have been meaning to get more. No Mercy will probably next be on the list. I, personally, really like Paper Trail, I would say most is pretty good to be honest.

American rapper, singer, actor and author. Had eight albums out, six which are platinum in the US. Had a massive hit a few years back called 'Whatever You Like' that went to #1 in the US, then another #1 with Rihanna called 'Live Your Life' and then another one with Justin Timberlake called 'Dead And Gone', all three sold 3 million downloads in the US.

He's quite big in America but his success in the UK has been quite medicore. He's only had five top 40 hits here.

Sorry to bump but does anyone know if he ever tours the UK? I can't seem to find anything that suggests he's ever been here and I'd love to see him live.

I don't know about touring.

But I'd definitely suggest getting his albums!! He's one of my favourite rappers. Trap Muzik (one of the first albums to bring trap music to the mainstream, songs today like Harlem Shake might not even exist if it wasn't for this album), King (Why You Wanna is my favourite from this album, I could listen to the beat forever, it's a great sample) and Paper Trail (his most successful album, and his first I listened to) are my favourites.

And his success in the UK has been very good imo. He's had a few hits here.

TI is one of the best rappers of all time IMO. His newest album is great. Supposedly there is a second part to it, and I'm definitely looking forward to it.

I only bought 'No Mercy'. The fact that he was convicted while recording it makes it his less commercial album, simply because he didn't bother to make radio friendly tracks since he wasn't going to promote them anyway

He did a great remix of Britney - Gimme More back in the day.

He might have trouble touring the uk because of his convictions like snoop dogg/lion/rabbit did.
