The September 4 release date of T.I.’s highly anticipated Trouble Man album is fast approaching, and fans are beginning to clamor for details on the project. Now, in an interview with Shade45’s DJ Whoo Kid, Tip reveals some high-profile guests that may end up on the final cut of his eighth studio album.
Although T.I. has yet to finalize the tracklist for Trouble Man, he revealed that he has already recorded collaborations with Andre 3000, Kanye West and Young Jeezy that may make the final cut. He also added that he hopes to collaborate with the likes of Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Santigold before the release nears closer.
“I’ve got records with [Young] Jeezy,” he said. “I’ve got this one record with me, Jeezy and Rocko called ‘Dope Boy Academy.’ I don’t know if it’s necessarily gonna make the album or if I just want to save it for another album, I don’t know…I’ve got a record with Kanye [West], too. When you do records with Kanye, you do the record initially, then you go back to it and try to perfect some things that you feel you could’ve done better, so I’m in phase two of that because when you send it back to him and he does the production different, it’s gonna be a problem. I’ve got a record with [Andre] 3000, that’s a problem for me. We was in the studio together.”
He added, “[I want to work with] Katy Perry, and I want to try to find something I can do with Santigold as well. I’m trying to stay diversified. I’m trying to remain just the guy who will shock the shit out of you with who he’s on a record with. Bruno Mars, I wanna work with him.”
