TI is so hot right now, that while most mofos can’t even sell their albums to begin with, Atlantic Records is going to be re-releasing “Paper Trail” with some bonus tracks:
While T.I. is serving his 366-day prison sentence on gun charges, his label Atlantic Records will re-release his latest album “Paper Trail” sometime this year with five new tracks.
During an interview with MTV’s Sway Tuesday night on the finale of his show “T.I.’s Road to Redemption: The Reckoning,” Tip said he has a number of tracks he’s already recorded to choose from, including an early, leaked version of “Paper Trail” featuring collaborations with The-Dream (“Like I Do”) and Ciara (“My Dear”) that didn’t make the initial commercial release of the album.
The rapper is also considering restoring a Kanye West verse that was tossed from the album to make way for the Roc-A-Fella star’s guest turn on “Swagga Like Us.”
“I’m still in the process of picking the songs,” T.I. said. “But I’m also still recording. I’m able to record any time — through the best of times and through the worst of times, I’m still able to record. It may change the sort of song you do, but you never can tell. You never know until that moment gets there.”
A date for the “Paper Trail” re-release has not been set yet as of press time.
Given all that this cat has overcome, with the longest stretch yet ahead, you’ve got to take your hat off to the fella. To say he’s getting it in would be a gross understatement.
