All hail the King. A week before its release, T.I. has made his ninth album Paperwork available to stream in its entirety via iTunes First Play.

Executive produced by Pharrell Williams, the follow-up to 2012′s Trouble Man features the Iggy Azalea-assisted hit “No Mediocre,” “About the Money” with Young Thug, and the Pharrell-aided title track.

Other guests populating the 18-track deluxe edition include Usher, Chris Brown, Jeezy, Boosie, The-Dream, and Rick Ross. Tip pays tribute to his late friend Doe B on “Light ‘Em Up” and addresses the Michael Brown shooting on the powerful “New National Anthem” featuring Skylar Grey.

Paperwork marks the first album in a trilogy. “The sound sonically of this one is soulful, musical, kinda like [OutKast's] Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik or Aquemini or [Jay Z's] Blueprint,” said T.I. “It just has an incredible amount of soul and a perfect hybrid between the ahead-of-the-curve, new-school sound and the classic, nostalgic, soulful sound of yesteryear.”
