T.I. has unveiled further details of his much-anticipated new album, “PAPER TRAIL.” The multiple Grammy Award-winning superstar will release the follow-up to 2007’s RIAA platinum-certified “T.I. vs T.I.P.” on September 9th.
“I just want everyone to know that it’s coming out and that I’m going to answer a lot of questions in the music,” the ATL-based rapper says of “PAPER TRAIL.” “It’s intense and insightful; it’s gonna shake up the game and it’s me at my best.”
“PAPER TRAIL” has been heralded by the street track, “No Matter What,” on which T.I. directly addresses his current life situation. The track – produced by Danjahandz (Timbaland, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, Danity Kane) – has been building momentum organically, scoring major airplay at Urban and Rhythmic radio outlets nationwide. The song’s companion video is now in “Medium” rotation at BET and in “Heavy” rotation on the network’s Rap City. At MTV, “No Matter What” is in rotation across the spectrum, including MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits, and MTV Jams (where it was recently “Jam of the Week”).
The album’s first official single, “Whatever You Like,” has just hit radio outlets nationwide. The song was produced by Jim Jonsin, whose many credits include Lil Wayne’s current #1 smash, “Lollipop.” In addition, “Swing Your Rag,” a brand-new Swizz Beatz-produced track from “PAPER TRAIL,” has just been added to the player on T.I.’s MySpace page, located at www.trapmuzik.com.
