TI talks New Mixtape with Dr. Dre

Posted By on December 29, 2011

Atlanta rapper T.I. has been busy since his recent release from jail: he just released the second trailer for his mixtape "Fuck Da City Up" which is set to drop New Years Day, and he even sat down with MTV to talk about working with famed producer Dr. Dre, discussing how the two had to develop the right type of "chemistry":

“Dre was here. He sent for me over to the spot. We really just turned up more than anything else. It was about creating chemistry. Of course we can get together, he got hot beats and I got dope rhymes, so we can always get together and make music," he continued. "But for people to feel what we're sayin' and for it to sound like a party comin' through your speakers, you gonna have to create some chemistry. So that's what we spent more time doin' than anything else; developing that chemistry."

Fans have heard what the two sound like working together before, when the track "Topless", rumored to have been for Detox leaked online.
