T.I. To Drop New Song on Monday Featuring Big K.R.I.T.
T.I. will be released from an Atlanta halfway house next Thursday, September 29, but fans will only have to wait three more days to hear a new song from the King. DJ Drama tells XXLMag.com that Tip will be dropping a new track this coming Monday—his first since going back to federal prison last November for a probation violation.
The surprises don’t end there. According to Drama, the new joint—which he said is not a new single, but merely a street record in anticipation of his release—will feature a certain, Southern 2011 XXL Freshmen known for both his rapping and production talents.
“The record that [T.I.’s] dropping next week features Big K.R.I.T. on it,” Drama revealed to XXL. “K.R.I.T. produced it.”
Drama also said that Tip has been grinding non-stop, since being released from the United States Penitentiary two weeks ago, recording over a dozen songs.
“Bascially when he’s in the halfway house he’s allowed to still work,” Dram explained. “So he’s been in the studio working. You know I was in there the other day, by the second day that I went in I had already heard like 13, 14 songs; new songs. Pharrell came the other day when I was in there. He dropped off a couple new joints. He already sent something the day before. That was done.”
