Although many news outlets reported T.I.‘s next single be “Swing Ya Rag,” the clip never made it on major television networks. That left fans asking about the video. Recently, Tip spoke openly about the video controversy and more on what fans can still expect from Paper Trail.
It seems Louis Vuitton and Gucci were not happy to have their product featured in the video.
“We did it, and it came out hot,” T.I. told MTV. “Louis [Vuitton] and Gucci started trippin’ about it. They were saying we were infringing, in one way or another. They weren’t happy about it. They didn’t want it to come out. But it’s hot, though.”
He also added that more singles would be coming from Paper Trail. “Live Your Life,” a Just Blaze-produced song which features Rihanna will be out soon, and “Swagger Like Us” can be a potential last single.
“I hope we can pull that off,” T.I. adds. “That was the definite intentions initially. We have to see when everybody is all available. I’m available whenever they are.”
Currently, he is planning a tour and working on his latest film, Bone Deep.
