T.I. Reveals Two Potential Titles For Next Album

UPDATE: Tip says he has about "25 to 30 songs so far" recorded for his untitled album.

T.I. recently dropped his street single "I'm Flexin'" featuring Big K.R.I.T., a taste of what fans can expect on his upcoming album. Speaking with Huffington Post, the King of the South said that he has a few titles in mind for the follow-up to last year's No Mercy and that he plans to release it early next year.

"I've narrowed it down between two album titles, and I haven't chosen which one it's going to be yet," he explained. "However, I recorded between 25 to 30 songs so far, and I'm trying to get the album shaped and ready to go for early next year."

He also touched on the potential for a mixtape release ahead of the LP. While he most likely won't put out a solo tape, he said that one could come in the form of a Grand Hustle showcase.

"I don't know about a mixtape, champ. I'm focused so much on the album that if I do a mixtape, it'll be a collective effort with me and the new priorities at Grand Hustle," he said. "I'm doing a lot of work to rebuild and reshape the structure of this company, and once we finalize exactly what that's going to be and who that will consist of, I will take those new pieces and we will together probably do a mixtape, introducing that new outfit to the world."

UPDATE: T.I. revealed to RollingStone.com the two possible titles for his upcoming album.

"The first of two album titles I'm debating is Kill the King because in all that I've gone through I've observed how people respond to my circumstances, and I always wonder 'Why y'all coming at me like this?' But I thought, 'How do you expect them to act?'" he said. "Life is a game of chess and the object is to kill the king. If you anoint yourself king, you have made yourself a target. The second one is self-explanatory – Trouble."

  • Royale The-AntiBoyfriend Gouani

    Hm. "Kill the King" very good title. Hopefully it'll reach the T.I. fans not satisfied with that "No Mercy" album.

  • Josh

    I dont understand why EVERY article has a shit ton of Wayne comments on it, even when the article isn't about Wayne? It was like this a few months ago too, except instead of Wayne it was Eminem. A lot of dick riders on this site.

  • #1 T.I. Fan

    ayo wit all do respecthe could of put forth a little bit more effort into coming up with a title. "kill the King" has a rebellious aura around it, showing us that dude has something to prove. take a look the rap game right now ..its heavily dominated by the likes of jay z, kanye west, and wayne- 3 of the 4 artists that were featured on 2009's "Swagga like us". to this day they remain on top of hip hop throne ..comercially. Tip knows that he's gotta go back to what made him a king in the first place ..

  • GSONII

  • Michael Eaton

    Grand Hustle >>> YMCMB...ijs

  • Sourheadband420

    The new tracks that I have heard since TI has been back have me excited. I could see him dropping a mixtape with an album 2 months later. Lord knows his raps are way tighter than waynes right now and he doesnt have to rush his next album like he did last time. I expect some quality features from the like of Eminem, BIg Krit, Jeezy ect... on this next album. Expect this to be the dopeness

  • Brendon Silver

    Lil Wayne is so doo doo

    FUCK Haterzzzz T.I. >>>>>YMCMB>>>>>trone shot

  • Lilmarcci JonesCd

    Naw sorry T.I. like I said the other week about you, you have to get back on that URBAN LEGEND/TRAP MUZIK vibe. Your beats need to have that "trap" sound to it. That's the problem with most of these older artist they're not using the right beats to their style. My advice would be go back listen to Trap Muzik, light one and make the album........Thanks
