Now that he’s free from behind bars, T.I. is on a mission to takeover the radio by jumping on anyone and everyone’s hit song. XXLMag.com just got off the phone with the King of the South who revealed some of the all-star collabos he has in the works.
First up is the remix to pop singer Ke$ha’s Benny Blanco-produced club banger, “Sleazy.” Tip tells XXL that he’s not the only rapper on the song. The track will also feature fellow rap superstars Andre 3000, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa.
When asked who has the best verse, the ATLien confidently replied, “I haven’t heard anybody but mine [but] I’m gonna put my money on mine.”
Also on deck is the remix to Meek Mill and Rick Ross’s summer smash, “I’ma Boss.” T.I.P. already recorded his verse. He says Weezy may also be on the song as well.
A while back the Grand Hustle general mentioned that he might be on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Niggas in Paris (Remix).” When asked about the status of that record, T.I. said, “Well, I officially have recorded my verse. And I haven’t spoken to ‘Ye. I let ‘Ye hear it . I think ‘Ye let Jay hear it as well. I don’t think a determination has been made on whether or not it is going to be official. But if it’s not official, it will be unofficial. It will be heard one way or another. I will assure you that.”
But that’s not all. T.I. wants to add his vocals to more songs.
“I’m looking for some more records to jump on,” he said. “That’s what I’m doin’ right now. I’m commandeering hit records right now. I’m hijacking hit records. If you got a hit I’m on it.”
As of press time it is uncertain when the Ke$ha or Meek Mill remixes will be released. —Jesse Gissen
