Freeload: TI f. R Kelly, “Life Of The Party” + “A Better Day”

June 23, 2008

Alright, yacht rap is nothing new to TI (see: "Why you Wanna" from King) or R Kelly (see: a whole lot of songs), so you'd think it was getting a little played out (it kind of is), but here's the thing, if you listen to this song in the imagined context of TI's upcoming album like we're doing, it might work out. We know that TI is writing verses again, which actually means he gets contemplative even on songs about partying, so a whole album of TI vision quests over every type of beat would actually be awesome. We're also posting this as an illuminating look at what it must be like for artists to record songs when a whole lot of shit is going down. "Life Of The Party" sounds like Tip called Kells and was like, Hey just record your verse through the phone and I will mix it from my house for reasons that are probably obvious. Of course, we could be wrong about all of this, but we're also speculating about an non-existent album with potentially 3 to 4 maybe included songs. JOURNALISM! Just because, we've also included "A Better Day," which shares one thing in common with "Life of the Party," and that thing is TI singing. We're not necessarily hating, but if you've already got R Kelly on your song, maybe just stick to rapping? Kellz is infectious though. (Both songs via 2 Dope Boyz)
