T.I. has plenty of music on the way. While he preps his 10th studio album Dime Trap and a Grand Hustle compilation for release this year, the King of the South might have a few joint projects to complete, including one with Trey Songz.
“Me and Trey Songz were supposed to do one too called The Lady Killers,” he told XXL.
But that’s not all. According to Tip, he is also cooking up a joint project with Jeezy. “Me and Jeezy, we were supposed been did this a while ago. The project was gonna be called Dope Boy Academy, and we did like three or four songs, but we just gotta get back in and put it together. We just want to present it correctly,” he said.
Additionally, collaborative albums with B.o.B, The Man and The Martian, and Young Dro, Sophisticated Excellence, are still on the table. “All those of these projects could very well come into fruition,” revealed Tip.
Those potential projects should keep T.I. fans excited, but so should Dime Trap, which will follow last year’s double EP, Us or Else: Letter to the System.
“It’s still going to be called the Dime Trap. I’m gonna put it out later this year,” he said. “It’s been ready for a while. The thing about music is that the things that go on in my life, like it’s so much going on, that I make so many different types of records and I’m just dying to see what kind of record this is going to be, you know what I mean? Is it going to be like the way I intended it to be? Like gutter and grimy like Trap Muzik, or is it going to be a culmination of radio records and trap records that make up kind of like a King album was or Paper Trail was? I’m gonna see what collection of songs come out of this. Usually, the newest ones kind of make their way up to the top, but there’s some records that I have done that I think are gonna move like people been waiting for.”
Plus, after restructuring Grand Hustle, the label head is gearing up to present his new roster with a compilation project. “It’s still dropping this spring but I can’t tell you no release date for the project,” he explained. “What I can tell you is that we’re going on tour and we’ll be splashing all around the country putting on.”
Tip is currently on the final season of “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle,” which is set to explore his pending divorce from Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.
