Tupac Shakur got these niggas gassed. Take that prison bid and then when you touch the town, hit the studio and soon you’ll be the undisputed #1 rapper. Maybe Wayne will pull this off. But T.I. certainly couldn’t. After his much heralded release, The Kang started last spring to attempt to get his career on track. But from “I’m Back” to his song from Takers (“Yeah Ya Know”) to that horrible collabo with Ms. Hilson (“Got Your Back”), Cliff struggled to gain a buzz and King Uncaged was shelved. But fear not, T.I. would break the law again so you know what that means, let’s get an album out! No Mercy feels as disjointed and rushed as you would imagine. As a lead single, the redemption song with Chris Brown (“Get Up”) was justifiably dismissed. And throughout the album’s few strong moments, Harris is overshadowed by guests like Scarface (“How Life Changed”), Eminem (“That’s All She Wrote”), Drake (“Poppin Bottles”), and Kid Cudi (“Welcome To The World”). I guess the hope is the Christina Aguilera-anchored closer “Castle Walls” will save the day but I highly doubt it. Lock this CD up and throw away the key.
