TIP – Da’ Nic EP Review

This EP is a good showing for TIP, Also Known as T.I, as it shows off his skills while getting a few messages across while also being extremely enjoyable. As EPs go, this is a good one.

The production is classic TIP with the refined trap feel, while being open enough for him to explore other content. The sounds used help to keep the beats fresh while not overpowering the actual rhymes. A bit more variation could push TIP to some more interesting challenges, but the backing selection here works well with his style.

The lyricism is good and shows that TIP has not missed a step in his career. He uses a range of techniques to convey his points and utilises a few flows to keep the delivery interesting. It will be interesting to see if he can keep this up with his next LP.

The choice to have two features is a good choice as it gives more space for TIP to show what he is still capable of. To have them both on the same track works well in this case as, with only five tracks, this means he proves he can work well with others while keeping plenty of room for himself. On such a short project, his choice of featurees makes sense, but on a full length album, he will need to make sure not just to pick guests like this.

Overall, this is a very entertaining EP with plenty of replay value. TIP must now capitalise on this momentum and carry it forward to his upcoming LP.
