Tip’s still looking for the magic single to send the anticipation for Trouble Man through the roof. Now, Hip-Hop’s coolest dad links up with long-time collaborator, Lil Wayne, for the New Orleans bounce music-inspired, “Ball.” Drawing inspiration from The Showboy’s “Drag Rap (Triggerman)” – a record Wayne is already familiar with – Clifford’s version has a several different updates instrumentation-wise with all credit/blame falling in the laps of Rico Love and Earl & E.
The final verdict on “Ball” – at least on this side – will be withheld until heard in the relaxing confines of a titty bar and my car. Anywho, as a ‘FYI’, expect the video for this to drop sometime in the near future as it was already shot in N’awlins. Trouble Man hits shelves exactly a week before Christmas (December 18).
