T.I. Recording New Album While Under House Arrest

T.I., who is currently under indefinite house arrest while he awaits his trial on federal weapons charges, is keeping himself busy by working on his next LP. According to Entertainment Weekly, Tip is six tracks deep into the new project, which will be called Paper Trail. The new album’s title is a reference to the fact that the Bankhead native is writing his lyrics down, something he reportedly hasn’t done since his first official LP, 2001’s I’m Serious. “He wanted to take more time to really put something down [this time],” his rep explained to EW. Tip was released from federal custody on October 26 after posting $3 million bond. U.S. Magistrate Alan Baverman placed him under house arrest with heavy restrictions. The rapper must wear a GPS tracking device to monitor his movements, and any visitors to his residence must undergo a criminal background check.
