Billboard recently previewed 5 of the 45 songs which T.I. has recorded for his next album (not including all the remixes he's gotten on). T.I. confirmed that his next album will be called "Trouble Man" and he spoke to Billboard about the album and his next single. Check out some excerpts from the interview below.
On His Next Single:
"I have this one record [titled] 'Pyro' that I'm proud of," T.I. told Billboard.com's The Juice. "'Pyro' is a straight party record. It's nostalgic of those crazy nights, early mornings [but] just turned up." "Pyro" will come after the release of T.I.'s two singles, "I'm Flexin'," featuring Big K.R.I.T. and "Hear Ye' Hear Ye'," feat. Pharrell Williams.
On "Trouble Man":
"A lot of times I'm taking myself out of my element, " Tip continued to say of "Trouble Man." "This is the first project where I'm talking about things that I've experienced before that I'm not necessarily experiencing now cause I'm not doing a whole lot of partying. I do a little bit but not alot... nothing like when I was in that life."
As soon as T.I. hits play on his iTunes, B. Kang, one half of the production duo Two Band Geeks, began to shake his head. "We sat down, while high off Capri Suns, and focused on making a record or Tip,"said Two Band Geeks, consisting of Stroud and B. Kang. "It's a beat that matches his flow and a style that's ATL but could go anywhere."
