T.I.’s Trouble Man Album Pushed Back

Fans are going to have to wait just a bit longer to hear the story of the Trouble Man.

In a recent interview with MTV, T.I. alluded that September 4—the release date that had initially been tied to his upcoming solo album—no longer applied. “I’m not trying to paint myself into a corner with a date,” he added. “I’m trying to make sure that the project is the absolute best it could be, and I’m trying to get it down by the end of the year.”

When reached for comment, a source with Atlantic only said the LP would be released “this fall.”

The delay on Tip’s eighth solo effort hasn’t been for a lack of recording, though. “Me being the perfectionist that I am, I’m still tweaking and fine-tuning, trying to perfect all parts of this project,” the Grand Hustle general revealed. “I did, like, 124 songs, and I’ve narrowed it down to 86 now, so now I have to continue to narrow down and continue to make it better.”

As a follow up to his single “Love This Life,” T.I. delivered his latest single, “Go Get It,” in mid-July. The track is produced by T-Minus, and beginning to climb the Billboard charts. After entering the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart three weeks ago at No. 93, it held steady at No. 92 last week before jumping to No. 69 this week. Tip is also featured on his label-mate Trey Songz’s “2 Reasons” single, which settled in at No. 8 on the same chart this week. —Adam Fleischer (@AdamXXL)
