T.I. Announces Title of Eighth Album, Reveals Next Single
Rapper T.I. has finally decided on a title for his upcoming album. It’s called ‘Trouble Man’ and it was inspired by Marvin Gaye 1972 album of the same name. The ‘I’m Flexin” artist feels that the title represents his life as a man haunted by his past but optimistic about his future.
The 31-year-old rapper-actor plans to release ‘Pyro’ as his next single from the set. “[It's] a straight party record,” he tells Billboard. “It’s nostalgic of those crazy nights, early mornings [but] just turned up.” Tip’s album will boast production assistance from Two Band Geeks (Stroud and B. Kang), Big K.R.I.T., Pharrell Williams, Dr. Luke and more.
T.I. describes ‘Trouble Man’ as an introspective album of where he has been and what he hopes to look forward to in the future. “A lot of times I’m taking myself out of my element,” he says. “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. Nothing like when I was in that life.”
No solid release date has been confirmed for ‘Trouble Man’ but we will keep you posted.
