I actually got the screener for this the other day. The good folks at MTV asked if I wanted to review & that was a no-brainer. I finally got around to watching it last night & was prepping a writeup on it. I knew full well this was going to leak before I could prolly get anything written so I’ll just jot a few quick notes.
— Whether you like him or not, you’ll find yourself watching & listening closely as Tip shares his stories. In fact, they’re the more interesting part of the show & I hope there’s more of the laced into upcoming shows.
— After hearing him mention his kids in his rhymes, seeing & hearing him talk about them, you can sense there’s genuine worry about how they, more than anyone, will fair while he’s away.
— Pee Wee, the kid T.I. has decided to help in this first episode, looks & acts like damn near like every little hustler in the projects of my city. Peasy hair, chapped lips, clean gear that fits him sloppy…and a determined ability to get his cash however, no matter what.
— Some of the upcoming episodes appear to have more complex characters than Pee Wee, individuals with more intricate situations. I’ll be watching to see how those play out & to hear more of T.I.’s story.
T.I.’s Road To Redemption debuts on Tuesday, Feb 10th, 2009 at 9pm EST. Subsequent episodes will air at the regular time slot every Tuesday at 9:30pm EST. For more information, visit www.TI.MTV.com.
