No Mercy is T.I.’s seventh studio album.
The album was originally intended to be titled King Uncaged. The cover features T.I., in front of a stark white background, sunk deep into a wicker throne, a lion standing by his side. However, after T.I. was sent back to prison, the title and cover were altered.
Production was handled by several high-profile producers, including Kanye West (rapping and producing), Polow da Don, The-Dream (singing and producing), Christopher “Tricky” Stewart, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, The Neptunes (Pharrell also performs), T-Minus, Rico Love, DJ Toomp and Danja, among others. The album also features guest appearances from several prominent artists such as Kid Cudi, Scarface, Chris Brown, Eminem, Trey Songz, Drake and Christina Aguilera.
