We count down our seven favorite songs from the rap king released in the past 12 months.
Is anybody busier than T.I.? However, it's not just about being busy for the hip-hop titan and trailblazer, he continually delivers quality work every time he hits the booth or appears in a movie. He's starring in Ant-Man alongside Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Douglas, out July 17. At the same time, his bars seem to scorch even hotter than ever before. In the past year alone, he's dropped some downright phenomenal records both off of Paperwork [Grand Hustle, Columbia] and alongside a myriad of collaborators. We wanted to countdown the seven best to honor hip-hop's real King...
Top 7 T.I. Songs This Year
7. Snoop Dogg – "Edibles" [feat. T.I.]
Over smooth Pharrell production with a decidedly seventies bounce, T.I. offers up one of the fieriest spots of Snoop Dogg's latest full-length Bush with his bars on "Edibles." The handclaps and Uncle Snoop's hook set the stage for him to roll in full force with a declaration of "that's the difference between me and you." He turns up the speed, strutting through the tune like Shaft. It's beyond Superfly.
6. T.I. – "Private Show" [feat. Chris Brown]
This one sees T.I. slow it down in the middle of his latest classic Paperwork. The hook from Breezy sets the stage with an airy sense of soul and T.I. delivers up one of his most hypnotic turns to date. It's slyly clever too, maintaining that edge with "handprints on your derrier."

5. Chris Brown & Tyga – "Bunkin'" [feat. Jay 305 & T.I.]
A standout on Fan of a Fan, T.I. hops on this Southern California anthem, adding that classic Atlanta swag, rhyming with the spark ignited from the word go. He brings a deeper dynamic and deft wordplay emblematic of that undeniable skill that made millions fans in the first place.
