Back in the fall, T.I. released a six-song EP called Us Or Else: A Letter to the System in which the rapper addressed issues facing the black community, like mass incarceration and police brutality. Now Stereogum is reporting that he’s back with the surprise release of a full-length LP, adding nine songs to the original six. As before, the record is available only to Tidal subscribers and, like the EP, the full record has some great guests — Meek Mill and Killer Mike among them. Along with the new tracks, this full-length Tidal release also includes a video for “Switchin Lanes.” T.I. announced the album via Twitter, along with an enthusiastic “Merry Xmas!!!!” Stream the full album below via Tidal, and happy getting-educated holidays.
