I Don't Know Why People Sleep on This Album Feb 13, 2004
By The Idle Receptionist
I didn't really like T.I.'s first album, so i dont know why i decided to get this one. I guess it was when i heard 24s for the first time. But I'm so happy i bought this CD. T.I. is cool because he talks about what he knows, & he's real, not just talking about his money & cars & girls. It's a refreshing change.
This album is mostly about the beats, because T.I.'s flow isnt that amazing. You could put any lyrics about anything on these beats & the CD would still be good.
There are some songs that are heads & shoulders above the rest:
1) Rubberband Man (best song on the CD) - people think this song is stupid but if you listen to the lyrics, he's not talking about just rubberbands. The beat alone makes it the best song on the CD.
2) 24's. You've all heard it.
3) I Can't Quit - Another great beat. Lyrics are okay, not talking about anything important.
4) Trap Muzik - Intro to the CD.
5) T.I. vs. T.I.P
Everything else isn't bad, just not as good as these songs, but i would definitely buy this CD even if you're not into southern hip hop. Trust me, it's way better than Ludacris's garbage & most other southern hip hop albums.

The Truth Sep 25, 2003
I bought this CD because I liked his Debut album, but I got much more than expected. Don't Hate Me Shawty is one of my favorites. His approach is innovative and fresh. He breaths life into a lackluster industry that's focus has been how much bling and things can make you broke before you even have a real hit. Real South folk are going to love this one. He made a name for himself in the region with I'm Serious... I just didn't know how serious (and talented) he was before I heard this one.

T.I.P.'s best work Oct 27, 2005
By Bart Motes
Trap Muzik, the 2nd of T.I.P.'s three albums to date, finds him in his best form. While both I'm Serious and Urban Legend have some great tracks, Trap Muzik is far more consistent than I'm Serious and gives us more of what we really want, T.I.P., than Urban Legend, which relies too heavily on guest artists. Some of the themes on this album are perfectly typical gangsta topics: hoes, drugs, and bling. Others, however, like Be Better than Me and T.I. versus T.I.P. tackle issues of living up to one's potential and avoiding the mistakes of the past. T.I. versus T.I.P. is particularly effective in analyzing the themes of authenticity and in coming to terms with both the past and the present problems that can trouble us. T.I.P. urges himself to break out of the mistakes of the past and take advantage of his opportunities, "man you'd be a fool if you blow this lid."
Other standouts are Let's Get Away, Look what I got, Rubberband Man, and I still Luv you. 24s is pretty good too. Recommended.

One word to describe this album Incredible Dec 08, 2004
By A. Stuart
In all seriousness Trap Musik is one of the best albums to ever come out of the south. Unlike Lil Flip, Cash Money (excluding Lil Wayne) talkin about their diamonds and cars, T.I has defefinately brought in a breath of fresh air. Production on the cd was aight but the lyrics was crazy. Im not even going to lie, i slept pretty damn hard on this album until my cousin told me to stop actin stupid and cop the album. Since then this particular cd has been consistantly in the rotation for over a year. One of the best advice he ever gave me. Here are my favorite tracks on the album:
-No More Talk
-Doin my Job
-Look what I got
-Let me tell you something (One of my favorite tracks ever. Just absolutely incredible)
-T.I vs. T.I.P
That is more than 50 percent of the album thats fire. I am definately not taking anything away from the others their hot too. Look stop reading these review and cop the album you will be doin yourself injustice by not doing so.
