This will be the ATL rapper’s first major national broadcast interview discussing his experience and lessons learned while behind bars. He will also be discussing and previewing his new record, the ferociously-titled ‘King Uncaged,’ which is planned for an August release.
“I want to maintain the level of success I’ve been fortunate enough to do, over and over again, over the years,” explained T.I. when asked about the new album in arecent interview. “This album is different in many ways. I think that Paper Trail was a lot more about thoughts; this is more about feelings. This is significantly more aggressive, or at least at this period in production. Who knows? I can do 10 love songs tomorrow and change the direction. At this point, right now, it’s going hard. It’s going hard like classic T.I.”
The first single from ‘King Uncaged,’ entitled ‘I’m Back,’ has been a big success for Tip, receiving major radio airplay and an appropriately elaborate music video treatment.
