DJ Toomp talked about T.I.'s new album saying it will mainly have tracks from 2007 that are re-mastered. "I got two or three strong ones on [the album] right now," said Toomp. "Right now he's just putting a feeler out in the streets, letting people know he's back. He got songs from the last two albums that didn't make the album but were hot songs. So sometimes we go back and pull songs from 2007 and upgrade it a little bit. After we do a certain amount of songs, that's when we figure out the whole theme of the album."
"I really do appreciate the
support and how hard y'all was going in during the brief hiatus," T.I. said
during a call. "The support don't go unnoticed and I don't take it
lightly. This marks a special day for us, because we putting out the
first song off the album, not an official first single, just something
to keep the streets warm. It's properly entitled 'I'm Back.' It's a lot
of things that needed to be spoken on, you know. In my absence, it was
a lot of things that went down, a lot of matters that needed to be
addressed and this was the greatest platform for me to do it."
"Album drops August 24th, title? I got one but I ain't gonna say
it yet. It was the first song I did when I came home. You get me fresh
out the box going in. I'm sure you guys will enjoy it…Middle of
April, beginning of May. Y'all gonna start seeing me. Y'all already
know, once again it's on. Like we always do this time."
