New T.I. Studio Album Coming on August 24

T.I. isn’t wasting any time. The recently freed Atlanta rapper plans on dropping his highly anticipated seventh solo studio album this summer.

XXLMag.com confirmed with Tip’s label, Atlantic Records, that his new disc will be titled King Uncaged and it will be hitting stores on August 24—just four days before his new movie, Takers, comes to the big screen.

As of press time Atlantic could not confirm any of the collaborators the Grand Hustle leader has been working with, but superproducer Just Blaze—who has scored several cuts with the ATL giant like “King Back,” “Live Your Life” and “Help Is Coming”—recently revealed on Tony Touch’s Sirius radio show, Toca Tuesdays, that he has been in the studio with Tip.

XXLMag.com spoke with DJ Drama earlier today about T.I.’s forthcoming mixtape. Dram said the disc, dubbed Fuck A Mixtape, will feature many surprise guests including a track with Lil Wayne. The tape does not have a release date as of yet. —Elan Mancini

    • the Change

      I’m going to agree with G-Unot Killa cause T.I. he ain’t impress me yet. The lyrics are just mediocre and his metaphors are boring, nothing new from the South. I’ll prob give it a listen but for the most part T.I. is not too special of a rapper. Why Else is he not on a stutus such as Eminem, Jay-Z, Biggie, Pac, Nas, KRS-One im going to say its cause he spent more time on the streets getting locked up then working on his dictionary and school.

      • matty21

        “i give it to you str8, nigga i dont need a ‘metaphor’”…. why isnt he in that top #1 status RIGHT NOW? cuz u said so? i heavily disagree… i want that real shit way more than that punchline n metaphor shit, and i think he top 5 D.O.A.

      New York rap blows? Your beloved ATL unleashed the curse that is Gucci Lame and his life-mate Wacka Flocka Flaming Faggot on the world. Best things out of the south: T.I., Jeezy, Outkast ain’t done shit in a minute, Killa Mike and the dopest dude out of the south is Jay Electronica. Good music is good music, region be damned.

  • $yndicate.MAN

    t.i’s the man cant wait for his upcomin album. as far as gunot killer is concerned…go eat a dick

  • M. Baby!

    7th Solo Album is all that needs to be said. Some of the new rappers won’t even go further than 1 or 2 albums. When you go to the studio and focus just on making radio cuts all the time, it hurts your career in the long run. These new rappers don’t need to focus on just radio singles, talk about some real stuff every now and then. This summer is gonna be crazy, u got Ross, Jeezy, Kanye, & T.i. dropping all this year….interesting. The south has it on lock. Name some north rappers dropping this summer that’s gonna make some noise??? Even J. Cole is spitting and repping for North Cak. I’ll be coping all of those above.

    you know what the internet is gettin more and more fulla haters wit everyday that passes if this nigga is a snitchin bitch why yall click on the headline just so u can talk shit get a life yo tip is probably the best rapper in the south some of yall talkin like the man aint talented

  • Destroyer Id

    To Capital G and that other crab in a bucket ass nigga. Yes the south produced soldier boy and wakka flocka lame assess but them niggas still more relevant than yo fav rapper. I mean i fucks with Jay,Bus,and a few others from the mid-late 90′s but aint nobody checkin for the 2000+ niggas. And nigga please leave that KRS-One shit in the nineties cuz nobody gives two cups of piss about him anymore. You east niggas like to look down on everyone else but them white folks see all of us the same fucking way as big nosed baby making drug dealing chicken loving niggers. It’s 2010 my niggas its time to get off that.

    • Capital G

      Go back and read exactly what was written. You miss the part where I said Jay Electronica is the dopest rapper out right now? He’s from New Orleans. I also said TI, Jeezy, Big Mike etc… all get play. I responded to “NY rap blows” and ended the statement with “goog music is good music, region be damned.” I can’t control what people under me have to say. Ain’t no east coast bias in me fam, and I am from the east coast. If the shit knocks, I’m knocking it. If it’s garbage I’m calling bullshit.

  • Destroyer Id

    My bad Capital G. I glanced at your comment when I went back up and didn’t read it fully. I mistook your comments and I apoligize homie. But my comments still stand for most east coast niggas on this site. There’s too much hate and region bias in our musics fanbase and I always see it here on this site.

    • Capital G

      It’s all good fam, just wanted to be crystal clear. And you’re damn right there’s a crazy bias in alot of cats from up top. Just because the slang is different don’t mean the message ain’t the same. Dope is dope and garbage is garbage. Be easy.

  • 5-0 4ever

    There is too much bias and too much garbage in hip hop. I’m 40 and I can’t think of one artist, from the north, south, midwest, east, or west since Run DMC, Eric B & Rakim, some Public Enemy, and some De La Soul that I would feel comfortable letting my 12, 10, and 4 year old kids listen to. For that much, I wouldn’t feel comfortable playing it around my wife. Clean up the lyrics. There are some seriously nice beats and music out there. We can get our point across without being graphic. Don’t give me that nonsense that “we rap about our environment.” I bet only about 25% of the hardcore acts actually grew up in hardcore conditions. Maya Angelou grew up in a tough situation but she gave us “Phenomenal Woman” not Dat Nigga Raped Me. Clean it up.

  • The real chris
