    The newly-married T.I. has announced that his new album, King Uncaged, will not come out next month. Why? Because he is focusing on promoting his new film, Takers. It pays to be a busy man working in multiple media. Let us hope T.I. fans are not too outraged by this news.

    Rap-Up reports that the King of the South has said "I pushed the album back so I can completely focus my attention to the rollout and release of this film Takers. I feel it wouldn't be fair to the film or the album if I was splitting my attention span amongst the two, so I hit pause on the album to completely focus my attention to rolling out this here film. And once we prayerfully debut No. 1--25-plus, 20-plus million--then after those bottles have been popped and that celebration [is] underway, I will completely resubmerge myself back into the music, fully on album mode."

    Takers is out on August 27. No new release date has been announced for King Uncaged, which fans are clamoring for. T.I. is a very busy man, aside from his recent jail stint. His role in Takers is reportedly one where he plays a cold, callous character.

    Will you go see Takers? Are you angry that Tip has pushed back the release of King Uncaged again?
