Rap titan Tip "T.I." Harris dropped his social commentary album Us Or Else, Just in time for Christmas.

Us Or Else: Letter To The System is a continuation of his Us Or Else conscious EP released on TIDAL over the summer.

Tip's EP touched on social issues that other civil rights leaders ignored. T.I. took over the reigns from civil rights leaders who don't have the ear of the younger generation.

The former trap artist joined Black Lives Matter protests, and later protested Donald Trump's election outside Trump Tower in Manhattan.

On his social media pages Tip led the call for justice for fallen activists including 28-year-old Sandra Bland, the Chicago woman who hanged herself in a Waller County, Texas jail cell.

Us Or Else: Letter To The System is available exclusively on TIDAL.

In January Tip also has plans to embark of a 20-city Canadian “Us or Else” tour staring Jan 12 in Vancouver, BC. See the full tour schedule on Tidal.com.

  • GuestSTAR

    Joe Madison is an African American  talk show host on SiriusXM. Hubby and I started listening to him on the way to work right after the election.
    He’s always telling his listeners to ‘stay woke’.

  • hi-liter
