No Mercy is the seventh studio album by American rapper T.I., released on December 7, 2010 through Grand Hustle Records and Atlantic Records. Recording sessions for the album took place during 2009 to 2010. Production was handled by several record producers, including Kanye West, Polow da Don, The-Dream, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, The Neptunes, TrackSlayerz, Jake One, T-Minus, Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, Rico Love, Alex da Kid, Nard & B, Drew Money, and Hollywood Hot Sauce, DJ Toomp, Jim Jonsin, Lil' C, Danja, The Smash Factory, Dr. Luke, among others.
The album debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling 159,000 copies in its first week in the United States. It attained international charting and produced by the lead single "Get Back Up". Due to violating his parole stemming from a drug arrest, T.I. was forced to alter things, including the album's intended bellicose tone and its title, from "King Uncaged" to current incarnation "No Mercy". Additionally, four purported singles failed to make the final cut. Upon its release, No Mercy received mixed reviews from most music critics. On January 14, 2011, the Recording Industry Association of America certified No Mercy gold for shipments of 500,000 copies in the United States. A vinyl edition of the album was released on February 22, 2011.
