Spending Time Constructively

- By Bossip Staff

It appears that Clifford is spending his time on house arrest wisely:

A representative for the Grammy-winning artist, 27, says he has already completed six new tracks in a studio inside his Georgia home. T.I. hopes to release the disc, which he’s calling Paper Trail, in September 2008. The album’s title refers to the fact that T.I. is writing his new lyrics down — a practice he abandoned after his 2001 debut, I’m Serious. Each of his four subsequent albums, including this year’s T.I. vs. T.I.P., was composed without the aid of pen or paper. “He wanted to take more time to really put something down [this time].”

It’s good that he now has taken the time out to produce some quality music, good for him, nothing like some well thought out lyrical ammo.

    So that is why a song or two from “King” sounds like a song or two from “T.I.v. T.I.P.”

    He didn’t remember what he wrote. 😦

  • Fred

    Now I see why the all those albums were wack. He should’ve never stopped writing. As a consumer I feel violated. Can a nicor get a refund???

  • ROC dynasty

    Why do all these non lyrical dudes always gotta talk about how they don’t write and just come off that top of their head…Ever since Jay-z said he did it everybody wanna act like they do it too. Jay has shown and proved the fact…only other rapper I’ve seen actually do it is Ja Rule and he isn’t lyrical either… I call bullS#it on tip until he can show and prove.

  • Reformed GammaRay

    He need to do something constructive.. and go figure out them multiple personalities, I MEAN alter ego’s lol


  • brinab

    im sure the title Paper Trail is also a spin on his current situation…

  • wifey

    Six tracks? Just six, measily tracks? WTF? F*** quality, you betta get some quantity up in that mutha…. You betta do a Tupac and get like 200 songs in the can cuz homie, if you go down for this, one album is not gone hold you and your family down. You gone need a few decades worth of music.

    You can be like Elvis and Pac (only the living version), and still be putting out albums when you’re nowhere to be seen. Better get crackin’, my brotha.

    @ wifey,

    Couldn’t have put it better. The mysterious album releases are now going to be his path to even bigger fame.

  • nice

    He is a cuttie! I love him! It seems he is single now! His profile was found on millionaire dating site WealthyRomance.com last week!

    Good luck to his search!

    JayZ is the only one spittin off the head who is actually lyrical and saying anything people want to hear. Lets just hope TI,TIP, or whoever he is today never stops writing ever again and moves forward wit the little bit of talent that god gave to him. And stop trying to buy guns that he’s to little to use.

    Squad Up!
