Those who are waiting for Grand Hustle General TI’s new album “Trouble Man” might just have to find musical inspiration elsewhere. In a new interview, the multi-platinum star was asked about his tentative new album, which was due to hit stores September 4th.
“Me being the perfectionist that I am, I’m still tweaking and fine-tuning, trying to perfect all parts of this project,” he said.
“I did, like, 124 songs, and I’ve narrowed it down to 86 now, so now I have to continue to narrow down and continue to make it better…I’m not trying to paint myself into a corner with a date.
I’m trying to make sure that the project is the absolute best it could be, and I’m trying to get it down by the end of the year.”
Translation; Don’t expect it anytime soon. How do you feel about the former rap phenomenon? Personally, TI’s personal life has overshadowed his now long gone musical dominance in the game. Once a HUGE fan, I hung up my Grand Hustle T-Shirt when he went back to jail for a third time for a parole violation. Or was it his second…? I can’t keep up.
The pint sized MC has hinted at retiring in previous interviews. He told BET News:
“This is what everyone fails to realize: I want out,” he said. “Where the game is going to and what it has evolved into from a personality standpoint, it goes against who I am as a person. So I want out. I’m [still] in it because I love music and because I have obligations contractually.”
Look at that. His heart is not really in it anymore. And as a fan neither is mine.
