Video: T.I. Talks Next Album (First Post-Prison Interview)

Atlantic posted this interview on T.I.’s Youtube.

He says he didn’t write that much while inside because there was a lot of “activity” around him and he wasn’t motivated to create.

He then says that his next album (due August 24th) will be more about “feelings” (whereas Paper Trail was more about “thoughts”) and will be “significantly more aggressive.”

  38. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    just listened to that Bizzle, and yeah, he’s speaking truth

  39. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    I always though that T.I.’s flow turned to crap on Paper Trail. Something to do with writing down his lyrics I guess.

    And he’s not really deep enough for the sacrifice in flow to be worth it. Beats were nice though.

    …just listened. Not bad. Not really a fan of that beat, but yeah, lyrics were pretty good. I’ll have to get around to checking out his albums. Does he dumb down for his singles? Cause thats what made me steer away from his work.

    ——————————————–

    I dunno dude, it’s just his flow got slower and less fluid IMO. I’ll give Paper Trail another listen though, maybe you’re right.

  48. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Funny thing is that i started to fuck with TI after What You Know dropped. I always fucked with the notable songs off UL (ASAP, U Don’t Know, Bring Em Out, Tha King etc.) but i never fucked with TI really as an artist around the time of UT and TM. I started listening to him when King dropped and on.

    But when TM101 dropped? Sheiittt, it galvanized the city. Every where i went i heard the snowman’s music emitting from peoples cars…the heights, bushwick, the X…you name it.

    …just listened. Not bad. Not really a fan of that beat, but yeah, lyrics were pretty good. I’ll have to get around to checking out his albums. Does he dumb down for his singles? Cause thats what made me steer away from his work.

    ^^

    I don’t mean to interrupt, but I got a take on this :

    Yeah. The beat ain’t good and still amazed me how I’m able to play that song on repeat not liking the beat straight out because the lyrics really mean something and I can’t get that much nowadays.

    As far as the singles … A little bit. Whatever You Like shows how he dumbs it down a little bit, but take Dead And Gone and Live Your Life … I understand how one can dislike both, but you still gotta admit it’s still 5x more lyrical than the average #1 / #2 song in the country in all ’08 and even ’09.

  52. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Co-sign. Dead and Gone really is an excellent song and so is Live Your Life for that matter. Like is said before it’s conscious music in a shiny disguise.

  53. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Slide Show is a personal favorite off PT. If you can’t feel and relate to that song then i dunno what to tell you.

  54. Polka Says:

    Curtis dropped an aggressive album with (with 5 r&b songs?)….

    I hope this new T.I. album is something a la Hurt. The song that is.

  55. AmpGeez a.k.a. Smoke Greene Says:

    Jail has made T.I. slightly overrated.

    What has he done lately?

  56. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    T.I. has always been smarter and made smarter music than most give him credit for.

  57. AmpGeez a.k.a. Smoke Greene Says:

    Anthems about tricking off on broads doesn’t sit well with me.

    I know he’s no longer in the trap, but that’s the mentality that made him a star.

  58. Vincent Van Dro Says:

    *acts rough*

    *gets knocked*

    Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  60. Officer Duscrom Says:

    Live your life beat=All the above beat

  61. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    And I already know that not everybody’s going to understand, but when I need to think or cool out and be by myself I just ride around the city with I’m Serious and Urban Legend, as well as King. T.I. is good ride around music.

  62. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Jail has made T.I. slightly overrated.

    ^
    How do come to this conclusion? He hasn’t gotten that much attention since he’s been released. And if you’re talking about before he went in well the nigga had a 2X album, 4 songs in the top 5 on billboard and 3 of those 4 were number 1 in the US. What else you need?

  63. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    T.I. has always been smarter and made smarter music than most give him credit for.

    I’m with you Fresh. Iight, I’ll be back.

    Dre shoulda kept that one.

  65. AmpGeez a.k.a. Smoke Greene Says:

    He hasn’t gotten that much attention since he’s been released.
    ===========================================
    Yeah he has.

    And what does Billboard have to do with the quality of the music?

    Paper Trail = T.I.’s Graduation

    T.I. Vs. T.I.P. may have been disjointed as an album but…

    Hurt, Tell Em I Said That, Respect This Hustle, Watch What You Say To Me…this is the T.I.P. I wanna hear.

  66. kufi-Smacks Says:

    Trap musik >>>>>>>>>> T.I ‘s other shit!!!

    havlf you niggas didn’t become fans until urban legend which could not fuck with trap musik…
