T.I. teams up with the talented Skylar Grey for this catchy new single entitled New National Anthem. As the title hints, the main theme in this song is injustice and racism in America, which has been an extremely popular topic since the fatal shooting of Ferguson teenager Mike Brown.
Based on the hook alone, the song has radio potential but, as Tip says in the very beginning, “I know radio probably ain’t gon’ play this.” Reason being is because it’s too much of a “touchy” topic, one that may not sit well with law enforcement or their affiliates. Tip and Grey both bring their A-game on this one and it should definitely sit well with fans.
Listen to the tune below and look for Tip’s Paperwork album to be released later this year.
