T.I. Says He Was An "Ignorant Nobody" When He Released "I'm Serious"
T.I. celebrates the 13-year anniversary of his "I'm Serious" single, which was produced by The Neptunes.
T.I. found an occasion to reflect on a 13-year old single on Instagram yesterday (June 26).
"13 yrs ago today a lil arrogant nobody from Bankhead released his 1st single titled #ImSerious prod. By @pharrell & #DaNeptunes feat #BeanieMan..... Who knew we'd be here 13 yrs later,still standing,still solid,still rollin...even stronger!!!! Thx,Love&Respect to each & all who made dis & everything that followed possible. @kawanprather #GhettoVision @Pharrell @jasongeter S/O @therealrapstagram #hustlegangovererrthang," T.I. says in the Instagram post's caption.
T.I. also posted the single's cover art for the effort.
The single is off I'm Serious, an album released in 2001 and earned a 3.5 out of 5 X rating on the site.
"Lyrically, Atlanta-bred T.I. isn't far behind a lot of other gifted young cats tryin' to make it in the Rap game," HipHopDX says in its review of the album. "But rather than doing stand-up on the mic or seeing how many words he can rhyme with Versaci, this 20-year-old tells wonderfully-detailed stories on I'm Serious about coming up when all the elements try to keep you down.
