T.I. Announces Release Date for Upcoming Album ‘Trouble Man’
On Tuesday, rapper T.I. went on Angie Martinez’ radio show to promote his latest single “Like That” and ended up revealing the release date for his upcoming album. Titled Trouble Man, the Southern rapper’s eighth studio album is set for a September 4 release and will feature both of his recent singles, “Like That” and “Love This Life.” On the radio program, he said: “Look forward to those summertime anthems that we’ve grown to love about T.I.”
In another recent interview with The Juice, the rapper revealed even more about Trouble Man, including his source and inspiration for material. He explain: "This is the first project where I'm talking about things that I've experienced before that I'm not necessarily experiencing now cause I'm not doing a whole lot of partying I do a little bit but not a lot."
The follow-up to 2010’s No Mercy will feature a few collaborations, including Trey Songz and Usher. About the Usher collaboration, producer Rico Love said it should be a “humongous hit.”
Although the album and a second season of his VH1 series T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle are both in the can, they’re not the only projects we’ll see from the rapper this year. An album with B.o.B, titled Man and the Martian is in the works, as is a collaborative album with Young Jeezy. Speaking with RapFix Live, T.I. mentioned they have about five or six records – roughly 30 to 40 percent of the release – complete, although no deadline or title is attached to the project at the moment.
