T.I. is the TRUTH!!!! His heart is truly in every album. I feel every emotion in his songs. You are truly one of the BEST rappers in the game and I know that God has His hand in your career. Keep your head up and don't give these haters the satisfaction of THINKING that you are down. Dust the dirt off and stay on top of your game!

I really enjoy watching Tip perform live. He is one of the only artist I have seen perform live more than once and buy every album that he drops. I would be lying if i said Tip muzik doent remind me on 2pac. Both artist muzik is very personal and real. TIP makes the type of music that u can wake up too. listen to when u in a situation, or that can get you through your day. Im awaiting a double CD TIP. Pac had several. Story tellers was awesome!

DVR'd this show, and i'm glad I did... I've looked at it several times. Just to see the songs performed, knowing the emotion that went into it, makes it even better. I love to hear Tip speak on his own thoughts on the song, it just makes it that much more of an experience to listen.

CANT STOP PLAYING ALBUM "NO MERCY" MAN! SO HAPPY TO HEAR A GREAT ALBUM FROM DA KING, AND SOMETHING NEW IN DA GAME... DA KING DID IT AGAIN, HE BROUGHT SOMETHING WE'VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE AND BROUGHT IT TO A PLACE WE'VE NEVER SEEN OR HEARD BEFORE! DUNNO HOW HE CONTINUES TO DO IT, EVEN A LARGE SCALE FAN LIKE ME LOL, DUNNO HOW HE KEEPS DOING IT.... A GAME CHANGER, AND GREAT/REAL/TIMELESS, AGAINNNNNNN! KEEP IT UP TIP, GOING TO BE JAMMING THIS NO MERCY FOR MONTHS, AND NOW LOOKING FORWARD TO DA ALBUM THAT COMES WHEN U GET OUT BABI! ITS DA KING. BITCH! AND I DONT THINK "I STILL LUV U" WAS PERFORMED MAN, JUST SAYING...REALLY WISH IT WOULD'VE BEEN, WOULD'VE BEEN EVEN MORE EPIC

AND @MrAce The King : it will be, u can bet that "It's gonna make a helluva movie!" -'My Life, Your Entertainment' ...gonna be documentary style like " 2pac resurrection" first, becuz it's so real and too real... den MAYBE, if it can be done right, if da right actor can be found, and if can be done on da right scale it deserves: den maybe a movie like "Notorious" but right now, i choose "Resurrection" over "Notorious" all day, becuz it's so real and so informative and was told in da RIGHT and 100% TRUTHFULL light... TBC...

man, this was a HELLUVA show! CAN'T BE TOPPED, by ANY ARTIST today! and i watched the show on vh1, and didnt see "I still Luv You" ? that was the song i was most looking forward to hearing, i thought maybe: "I still Luv You" and "Still Ain't Forgave Myself" got mixed up when posts talked about what was performed...but i'm gonna watch again? i didnt see "i still luv u" was really looking forward 2 that, knowing it was never performed before and one of my favorite songs ever by any artist...but on another note, "still aint forgave myself" was fuckin great man, he performed dat shit phenominal... dis show was great, and if at all any more possible, this show opened up even more doors for TIP...and opened up even more people to da king, like i said: if even possible..more doors have been opened if dey could be....dis was da shit and wish i could've been there, CAN'T WAIT FOR DA NEXT OPPORTUNITY TO SEE DA KING!?! I'LL BE THERE! *PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA* WE WAITIN FOR U BIG HOMIE! GRAND HUSTLE AND WHOEVER ELSE, MAKE IT HAPPEN! WE WAITIN FOR OUR CHANCE TO GET OUT AND SEE DA KING, WE'LL BE THERE 4REAL 4SURE...JUST GET HERE BABI!
