T.I. recently opened up about his forthcoming album, “Paperwork: The Motion Picture“. In the interview, Tip details about working a lot with executive producer Pharell, who was just named Producer Of The Year last night’s Grammy Awards. The Grand Hustle general also revealed he’s been recording with Justin Timberlake, Busta Rhymes, And Jeezy for the project.
“Me and Pharrell have a plethora [of songs],” T.I. says during an interview with XXL. “We probably done recorded 14 records. Pharrell and I alone. Words couldn’t even begin to describe how cutting-edge, left-field and just how broad these records are. But they still have that texture that I speak of. They still have that Curtis Mayfield, Bobby Womack, a ridin’ dirty kind of … but a new way to present it to the world because it has that thing that Pharrell does to music that sets it apart from any and everything else that’s being played. And of course I had to give it the pulse of what I know. It’s incredible work. I did incredible work with Keno. I did incredible work with Sham [“Sak Pase” Joseph]. I have [a record] B.o.B [did] for me. It’s awesome.”
“DJ Toomp did a record,” the Atlanta rapper says. “Actually, it’s a Justin Timberlake collaboration called ‘Trap Me Up.’ It’s an awesome record JT blessed me with.”
