    T.I. Ranks No.25 on XXL’s ‘First 5′ List
    Posted by      



    Via XXL:

    With apologies to De La Soul, five is the magic number. It’s usually the amount of albums in a standard record deal, but few MCs ever fulfill their contractual obligations with as much aplomb as they started. Whether an artist peaks early or late, staying consistent over the duration of five albums has proven challenging no matter the era in hip-hop. XXLmag.com decided to rank the best first-five album runs in hip-hop history (First 5). A new act and their ranking will be revealed each day of the week throughout the month of October and the Top 5 will be revealed on November 5th.

    Tip made the list, checking in at #25. Head over to XXL to read the breakdown of each of his albums, and why they felt he should make the list.
