In Atlanta’s Darp Studio Inc, Billboard recently got a chance to preview some tracks from T.I’s new album. While in the lab, Tip also confirmed the title, of what will be his 8th studio album, as Trouble Man. Tip also announced that the albums new single “Pyro” will be released soon.
Tip gives some insight on the Trouble Man title:
“I’m embracing it. A lot of times I’m taking myself out of my element”
“This is the first project where I’m talking about things that I’ve experienced before that I’m not necessarily experiencing now cause I’m not doing a whole lot of partying. I do a little bit but not alot… nothing like when I was in that life.”
T.I also announces his next single as “Pyro” which will be released shortly:
“I have this one record [titled] ‘Pyro’ that I’m proud of. Pyro’ is a straight party record. It’s nostalgic of those crazy nights, early mornings [but] just turned up.”
“Pyro” follows T.I.’s first two singles from Trouble Man, “I’m Flexin’” featuring Big K.R.I.T. and “Hear Ye’ Hear Ye’,” feat. Pharrell Williams.
T.I. has set a tentative date of February 2012 for the release of Trouble Man.
