T.I. continues to put in work for his upcoming album, Trouble Man.

Although he was originally aiming for a September release, Tip now says he's trying to get it finished for the end of the year, as he wants to make it perfect.  The ATLien told MTV News:

"Me being the perfectionist that I am, I'm still tweaking and fine-tuning, trying to perfect all parts of this project," Tip told MTV News, confirming that the album won't be complete for another few months. "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."

He continued, "I'm not trying to paint myself into a corner with a date. 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."

From those 86 songs, Tip's hoping to cut it down to 14 or 15 for a complete project.
