Much like JAY-Z did on 4:44, Tip confesses his sins and seemingly wishes he could do things differently.
“It’s amazing all the shit I’ve done,” he begins. “Such examples I’ve been setting for my son/All she did was stay down and have my kids/All the time just to realize I ain’t shit/Such audacity that I must have/To get in mid-company and slap on ass.”
After T.I. shared a clip on his Instagram account, some of his 9 million followers applauded the Atlanta native for being so honest.
T.I. was a recent guest on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show where he opened up about the song.
“I’ve always kind of shied away from even speaking on those types of topics in my music,” Tip said. “I felt like this is a time where the music is dope. I just felt that I had to lay it out, I had to put my cards face up on the table.”
“The Amazing Mr. F**ck Up” featuring Victoria Monét comes from Tip’s forthcoming album, Dime Trap, which is expected to arrive on Friday (October 5).
