T.I. Announces Release Date for New Album “Trouble Man”
Atlanta rapper and self proclaimed “King of the South,” T.I. took to New York’s Hot 97 with DJ Drama at his side this week to announce the release date of his upcoming project titled, Trouble Man.
The album follows up T.I.’s New Year’s Eve mixtape called F*ck the City Up, and will be his eighth official release and first full length album since being freed from prison in late September 2011.
While on air with Angie Martinez, T.I. explained VH1's plans for the upcoming season of “T.I. and Tiny’s Family Hustle“, as well as the expected his expected plans for Trouble Man.
“It’s coming ["T.I. and Tiny's Family Hustle" on DVD]…Season Two premieres September 3, so right then, thats when you can go get Season One [on DVD],” T.I. explained.
“September 3 is the premiere of Season Two, and September 4 is the release of Trouble Man, the album,” T.I. told Angie Martinez on Hot 97. “Coincidence? I think not.”
Fans might assume that the title of the project stems from T.I.’s well-publicized criminal record, including seven felony convictions, but T.I. told Billboard in November of last year that the title was specifically derived from Marvin Gaye’s song, “Trouble Man.”
