T.I. recently sat down to open up about his time behind bars and his upcoming new solo album calling it more "aggressive" than his 2008 "Paper Trail" lp. Without a title yet, T.I. says the album will be more like "classic" TIP than anything. "I'm happy to be home," T.I. said in a video. "I learned a lot, grew a lot and now I think it's time to put all that to good use. I didn't write too much, people might thought I was doing a lot of writing but I didn't write that much, you know. I didn't get a lot of time to. It was a lot of activity around me so I wasn't really motivated to create. I just want to continue to maintain the level of success I've been fortunate to do over and over again over the years. Well, this album is different in many ways. I think that Paper Trail was a lot more about thoughts and this is more about feelings. And this is significantly more aggressive, at this point in the production. Who knows, I could do ten love songs tomorrow and change the direction but as of right now, it's going hard. It's going hard like classic T.I."
