T.I., I'm Serious

T.I. began making his case for King of the South with his 2001 debut, I'm Serious, but it wasn't a very strong argument — particularly compared to his sophomore effort, Trap Muzik. Despite a heavy-weight crew of producers and notable features, I'm Serious didn't make much of an impact — maybe that's why it was his only release on Arista.
