“Us Or Else: Letter To The System is a continuation of the conversation TIP began with his inspired EP “Us or Else,” a musical social justice statement which was released on TIDAL earlier this year along with the visuals for “War Zone” and “We Will Not” and “Black Man” featuring Meek Mill, Quavo and Rara currently moving up the charts. Expanding on the initial collection of six powerful songs, TIP adds nine new tracks utilizing platform to speak out about social justice issues; specifically, the repeated deaths of unarmed black citizens most of whom died at the hands of law enforcement and his deep concern about mass incarceration. This collection was created as a call for unity within his community.
With “Us or Else,” Tip also challenges his own community on materialism and lack of focus. Guest appearances include Meek Mill, Killer Mike, Big K.R.I.T, Lil C, Quavo, B. Rossi.
In January Tip also has plans to embark of a 20-city Canadian “Us or Else” tour staring Jan 12 in Vancouver, BC. See the full tour schedule here: read.tidal.com.
