T.I. Taps Lady Gaga For "New National Anthem," Says He Channels Tupac On "Paperwork"

Exclusive: T.I. debuts "No Mediocre" music video and reveals details regarding "Paperwork."

T.I. has announced various details surrounding his upcoming album, Paperworkduring a theatrical screening of his "No Mediocre" music video held in New York City, New York. 

At the listening session, T.I. confirmed that his "New National Anthem" song, which features Victoria Monet, is slated to feature Lady Gaga. Tip says he is finalizing the process for getting Gaga on the song. 

T.I. also says he plans on channeling his inner Tupac Shakur, specifically referencing the late emcee's "2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted" selection. 

T.I. spoke about Paperwork in April 2014

"Paperwork is official," he said at the time. "If you've got paperwork on something, it's official. Also, if someone has paperwork on you, then it could be some trouble. So, it's official, it's trouble, it's authentic. Sounds like me. The music supports this theory very well." 

"This is the first time in my career that I have had enough time to create all the music, get the sequencing down, even before I start my clock and put myself on the calendar," he added. "Now that I have all of the music...I could take my time and step back and make sure it's the perfect blend, to create the perfect amount of synergy between trap music and art house."
