“Trap Muzik,” T.I’s. first delivery on Grand Hustle, turns 18 years of age today.
Albeit Hip-Hop has advanced past the sentimentality of Trap Music during the 2010s, the last decade saw the Hip-Hop subgenre get more well known than any other time on account of a rush of craftsmen like Future and Migos. All through the broad appreciation for trap, some of Hip-Hop’s OGs frequently bantered about the starting points of the subgenre, with Gucci Mane, Jeezy, and T.I. being a portion of the names most ordinarily refered to in contentions as the rappers who made snare.
Lately, T.I. has tried to avoid guaranteeing that he is the originator of trap, yet he has kept on pounding in the point that he is liable for instituting the expression “trap music.” For that contention, he regularly focuses to his sophomore collection and his first delivery on his now-unbelievable name Grand Hustle: 2003’s Trap Muzik.

While sonically, Trap Muzik sounds very not quite the same as you’d expect a collection named after perhaps the most abrasive, unpolished, and crude Hip-Hop subgenres to seem like, it’s unquestionably a significant collection in Hip-Hop history, and today, it praises its 18-year commemoration. Word has it that Pharrell has recently called T.I the “Jay-Z of the South,” and the King of the South unquestionably moves toward Trap Muzik with that sort of energy. Particularly on the post-Blueprint, Kanye West-delivered “Doin’ My Job.”
Give it a tune in beneath, and take some time today to return to T.I’s. work on Trap Muzik. Almost twenty years after the fact, how well has the Atlanta rap veteran’s down changing collection matured?
