Atlanta rapper T.I.’s contract with his label home Atlantic Records may be coming to a close, but the Grand Hustle founder revealed in an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club that he’s happy where he’s at and if he can finish his music career at Atlantic Records, he’ll do just that.
“Aye man I’mma say this, I’m happy where I’m at if they happy to have me. I’m happy where I am…I’d like to finish my career there if that’s possible, but that’s not up to me, it’s up to them,” said T.I.
While T.I. is preparing for the release of his eighth studio album he’s also pushing another project, his second novel titled “Trouble & Triumph: A Novel Of Power & Beauty.” During his interview with The Breakfast Club the rapper spoke on the process of creating the book.
“Well, I’mma tell ya, I don’t sit down and write. We have conversations. We have conversations and I discuss my ideas and theories,” T.I. explained. “He has a tape recorder and then from my ideas he creates what is called a manuscript. I overlook the manuscript make corrections, and add to it. And that process goes on back and forth for as long as it takes to come up with that book right there…I think the success of the book will determine whether or not it deserves to be made into a movie."
“Trouble & Triumph” was released this week and Trouble Man is due out this December.
