According to multiple reports, T.I. is already in the studio working on a new album for 2010. Producer Jim Jonsin, who produced TIP's "Whatever You Like" hit, says that the Grand Hussle leader is working on the follow up to his 2008 "Paper Trail" album. "It doesn't seem like he missed a beat," Jonsin said in an interview. "He was so upbeat, his spirits were up, and he's excited to be out and working. He hasn't changed, he sounded exactly like he did when I talked to him months before he went in. He's back in the studio. I sent him some music via email. He can work during the week and not on the weekend, I believe. He's definitely working on an album for this year right now."
Although the message is now deleted, former Atlantic Records music executive Kevin Liles posted on twitter about a "close friend" of his going into the studio to work after he visits family. "My right hand went home to visit family & found his way to the studio. He said 'why wait for 2010, get it in now' Love the attitude!" Liles posted. Was he talking about T.I.? It seems like it now.
