Twelve years ago today began the start of the new “King of Da South” as T.I. dropped his second studio album called Trap Muzik. The album was released under Atlantic Record/Grand Hustle Records and, unlike his first LP with lack of label support, things were about to change in a major way.
Trap Muzik came like a bat straight out of hell flying off the shelfs with a hit single like “24’s” which charted 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and a second single called “Be Easy.” To put the icing on the cake, he released a third single called “Rubber Band Man” produced by the talented David Banner with a Manny Fresh sample. Lord knows T.I. was making it known that there was a new king in town.
