T.I. must have penned plenty of material while in prison. Not only did Tip release his first book on Tuesday, the rapper has featured on multiple songs, plans to put out a mixtape with B.o.B. and rhyme on remixes of Jay and Yeezy‘s “Niggas In Paris” as well as Ke$ha’s sought after “Sleazy.”
After a day of visits to The View, Howard Stern, and other outlets to promote his first novel “Power and Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets,” the King of the South stopped by Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 radio show. There he premiered his newest track “Hear Ye, Hear Ye,” which was produced by and features a verse from Pharrell.
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, T.I. discussed possible titles for his upcoming, eighth studio album “The first of two album titles I’m debating is ‘Kill the King’ because in all that I’ve gone through I’ve observed how people respond to my circumstances, and I always wonder ‘Why y’all coming at me like this?’ But I thought, ‘How do you expect them to act?'” He elaborated to the music magazine “Life is a game of chess and the object is to kill the king. If you anoint yourself king, you have made yourself a target. The second one is self-explanatory – ‘Trouble’.”
