T.I. is telling fans about his next album and the vibe he’s going for with this comeback.
In his first on-camera interview since coming out of lock-up, the King of the South said he’s looking to make a departure from his last release.
“This album is different in many ways. Paper Trail was more about thoughts, this one is more about feelings,” he said of the as-yet untitled album. “It’s significantly more aggressive—at least this period in the production of it.”
T.I. said he isn’t closed to the idea of the project changing focus, though, because he’s still writing the album. Contrary to the hopes of many fans he didn’t spend a bunch of his time behind bars thinking up tracks.
“I didn’t write that much; I didn’t get a lot of time to,” Tip admitted. “It was a lot of activity around me, so I wasn’t really motivated to create.”
