ARTIST: T.I. TITLE: “A Better Day” WEB DEBUT: June 21, 2008

ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: Expecting T.I. to start putting out schmaltzy lesson-learned tracks now that he’s doing community service? Well, you’d be right about the schmaltz. You want to go straight but you can only get money through dealing drugs? “It’s OK, tomorrow will be a better day!” You just got arrested and its your third strike? “It’s OK, tomorrow will be a better day!” I’m sure T.I.’s parole officer wishes he’d sung “Trust me that crime don’t pay,” but I think most of us just wish he wasn’t singing. This track follows closely on the heels of “Life Of The Party,” and his surprisingly light-on-the-Autotune voice groaning on the chorus despite the audible availability of R. Kelly would seem to mean that we can expect a lot of crooning from the King Of The South.

WHERE TO FIND IT: KNOWXONE posted it Saturday, and it’s since made its way to YouTube and beyond.
