Atlanta’s rapper T.I. is busy recording tracks for his upcoming album, entitled Trouble Man, which will be released February 2012. T.I.’s first post prison released single “I’m Flexin’” proved that he is indeed back. So far, T.I. already recorded 45 tracks for his eighth studio album. In an interview with Billboard.com The Juice, T.I. saluted Em and is feeling some artists on Shady Records. Read some excepts below:
On Eminem being an enormous supporter.
“I haven’t had a chance to speak to Em since I’ve been home,” T.I. said. “I heard that while I was down, he was trying to get in contact with me, but I don’t know if the dots just didn’t connect. [Eminem] overcoming his own adversities, winning the battle against his own demons and continuing to break the mold and re-set the standard of what it means to be the most successful hip-hop artist in the game … I salute that to no end.”
T.I. is feeling some artists on Em’s Shady Records.
“I love what he’s doing with Slaughterhouse. I love the move that he made to sign Yelawolf. And the record with him and Royce da 5’9″… that record is going h.a.m. He killed that BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher. I’ve been peeping the move[ment].”
