T.I. tells MTV he’s 75% done with his new album and has recorded 70 tracks. He says he’s bringing back the vintage TIP sound and plans to get back in the lab with Dr. Dre during its finalizing stages.
We plan on getting back in and coming up with a few more, so you never know what could become of that. We got one with Akon, did a few records with Rico Love. Man, I got records with just about everybody.
We just putting it together, we done did about 70 records. So now we’re in the narrowing-down process. So we’ll narrow them down, we’ll do probably about 15 more.
We got a lot of hot, old-school, vintage T.I. records on there. I’m talking like gutter, gangsta, intellectual ignorance, hard-core stadium sh–, but at the same time we got those over-the-top crossover records as well, big features and whatnot that we plan on putting into play.”
