As busy as T.I. is, the King says his proposed joint album with Young Jeezy is still very much a go.
Not only that, but Tip says the two Atlien powerhouses are about six records deep into the collaborative LP, as are he and Grand Hustle artist B.o.B.
“I got a few albums that I’m workin’ on: the Man and the Martian project with B.o.B; me and Jeezy been talkin’ about doin’ this project for a minute,” T.I. recently told Sway Calloway on MTV. “It wouldn’t take us long to do. We got records already in the can and it don’t take us no time to put it together. It’s just a matter of when they would be released.”
Of the two joint projects, The Man and The Martian project would probably be closer to fruition, considering the two are under the same Grand Hustle team. As for the collaborative LP with Jeezy, T.I. says actually recording it is a breeze. Marketing it and promoting it properly is the challenge.
“It’s not the recording, the recording is easy. It’s a matter of when we would have time to market and promote ‘em and release ‘em,” T.I. said. “We got maybe 30 or 40 [percent done]. Between the two of us, we probably got five or six records.”
Joint projects aside, Trouble Man will mark Tip’s eighth studio album. Earlier in the week he not only set a release date for his LP, but also released “Like That,” another single off the upcoming project.—Mark Lelinwalla
