When T.I. was sentenced to head back to prison for 11 months, it appeared as though his already delayed King Uncaged would be shelved indefinitely. But a couple weeks after his bad news, he announced that he was changing the title of his seventh album to No Mercy. The album was tagged with a December 7th release date that same day, but it was made a little more solid day when Atlantic sent out a press release and revealed the album art.

The artwork above is a big departure from the planned cover for King Uncaged (pictured below). Neither iTunes or Amazon have the album listed yet, but “Get Back Up ” featuring Chris Brown is available on iTunes. The album is expected to feature Eminem, Kanye West, The-Dream, Christina Aguilera, the aforementioned Chris Brown and more. 

T.I. was arrested on September 2nd on drug possession charges. He reported to an Arkansas prison on November 1st to begin his 11 month stretch for violating his probation.
