|Young Buck chronology|
T.I.P. is the second Independent album by rapper Young Buck. It was released on November 8, 2005, through the independent label, Mass Appeal Entertainment. Guest appearances on the album include D-Tay, Rizin Sun, First Born and Bun B.
Stylus Magazine writer Evan McGarvey criticized the album's "meager" production values, and he noted that "Young Buck’s charms are alluring, if a little unrefined." McGarvey praised Young Buck for knowing "even then that two rappers make a song intrinsically different than one voice. That in itself is a lesson most rappers seldom learn as rookies." Steve Juon of RapReviews wrote that opening track "Blood in Blood Out" sounded similar to Young Buck's later work, providing the album with a "fairly promising" start. However, Juon added that "too much of this album is just plain mediocre", and that its release was an obvious attempt "to cash in on Buck's fame."
