T.I. "Trouble Man" Release Date

UPDATE: T.I. reveals the fall release date for his new album.

T.I. is currently recording his upcoming album Trouble Man, with 45 songs in the can. During an interview with Billboard’s Juice, Tip revealed that he has a duet with Usher lined up for the project, tossing his name into the fold while listing his dream collaborations.

“I'd love to work with Ke$ha. I want to work with Cee-Lo, Bruno Mars. I'd love [to work wtih] Frank Ocean, Miguel. I like to work with a lot of different people that can provide a lot of different sounds,” he said. “Usher and I have been putting our heads together on how we can present that perfect collaboration between him and myself."

Additionally, he explained that he wants to step outside of his comfort zone for the project, due in February 2012.

“A lot of times, I'm taking myself out of my element," he said. "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 a lot ... nothing like when I was in that life."

[September 23]

UPDATE: T.I. has revealed that his new album Trouble Man will release on September 4th, the day after the premiere of the second season of his VH1 reality show "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle." The news was broken during an interview on Hot 97 with Angie Martinez. Listen to the full interview below.

    TI has been consistent, getting better with each album. IMO his top albums are Paper Trail, King then Trap Musik. No Mercy was rushed and subpar so hopefully this album is better than previous ones.

  • M.d. Morris

    This nigga ain't the King of the South. He's more like the Mouth of the South.

  • M.d. Morris

    T.I. is fuckin' rat. A protected federal informant. How this nigga talking about killing niggas in his songs when niggas from the Midwest killed his homeboy for real? And that nigga ain't do shit, but make more songs!

    back then T.I. was one of the few realest mainstream artist. he was "Jay-Z of the South" i miss those days.

    Paper Trail was good, but not a classic. Can't believe people turned on Lil Flip. Where's Flip anyway?

    T.I. has become so watered down he's actually making Drake look like a gangsta.

    KRIT brought out the best in T.I. Unless the project has KRIT everywhere then it will be another mediocre mainstream bubblegum release from T.I.

    • Anonymous

      once again ETK makes you dickriders look as stupid as you sound

    • ETK

      oh yeah that makes fuckin' sense. there's one nigga who brought out the best in T.I. and that's DJ Toomp. done it for years. Tip skipped out on him in his T.I/T.I.P album and the album ended up subpar for many. KRIT pairs up with him for one forgettable street banger and he's his solution to all problems? fuck outta here. got love for KRIT but at least when shit makes sense

    stepping out of his comfort zone, its going to sound like any pop song about sex and girls. get fuck outta here sell out.

  • Anonymous

    Love T.I. But Goddamn, Kesha?, Rappers have gone so fuckin soft lately, theres already way too many annoying pop songs as is, seems like everyone is selling there soul just to sell a couple more records.

    • Anonymous

      i know it's sad, like be your own artist, this industry is run by the producers and pop sensations, and these rappers try to make something in that lane to sell records. its a shame, be your own creative person with your ideas for your sound. i aint buying this weak shit.

  • T-Mac

    Kesha, Miguel, Cee Lo, Usher, Bruno Mars ? Daamn Tip, what the fuck happened to you ?!

  • UPTOWNRELL

    I wish him the best i still feel him a lil and i from the street's and as the street's say i need some paperwork before i start rockin with him again

  • Zach

    How you gonna go from collaborating with K.R.I.T. to wanting to collab with Kei$ha? Tip needs another true southern rap album.

  • Anonymous

    KESHA? KE$$$$$A? KESHA? REALLY? cmon TIP

  • Anonymous

    Any time an artist "Takes it back" to what he use to do, the album flops and nobody likes it, because you cant recreate a moment in time just because a few people on the internet tell you to T.I making "Trap Muzik 2.0" would sound fake as hell, because he's a millionaire and aint been broke in a decade I dont like the sound of these collabos but at least he's trying to progress instead of regress Those who dont leave the past behind them will get stuck in the past

  • Anonymous

    THIS BETTER BE GOOD, I HOPE LIKE HE SAID HE WORKS WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE PLEASE NO OFFICER RICKY OR LIL WAYNE PLEASE PLEASE

    • Flamez

      I thought he said he was gonna take it back to the, Trap Muzik days? Yet he wants to do pop collabs and shyt. I doubt this will be anygood. Probably the record label's wish list,nigga's never stick to they guns in this game.
