T.I. Sets Up "Paper Trail," Records New Album While Awaiting Sentencing

ImageThe grind doesn't stop for T.I. , the Atlanta rapper recently announced plans to work on a new album while awaiting sentencing.


Just four months after the release of his last chart-topping album, T.I. vs. T.I.P, Clifford "T.I." Harris is already at it again. According to Entertainment Weekly, Tip is working on a new album inside his South Fulton County home while under house arrest awaiting sentencing on federal gun charges.

A rep for T.I. confirmed that six records have already been completed at Tip's home studio. The album, titled Paper Trail, is a reference to T.I.'s return to writing his lyrics on paper, which he hasn't done since releasing his first album I'm Serious six years go.

"He wanted to take more time to really put something down [this time]," his rep explained to EW.

T.I. was arrested in October after an alleged attempt to purchase machine guns and silencers.

He is currently out on bail under home arrest, which requires he not leave his home while awaiting bail. The terms also strictly limit guest visits, a rule which required T.I. to submit a request for permission to allow additional guests for a Thanksgiving holiday dinner gathering. He has since withdrawn that request.
