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
