Formerly jailed rapper, the diminutive T.I., has wrapped up his jail term and posted a video interview on his official site, www.trapmuzik.com, where he revealed some deets about his forthcoming, currently untitled new album, which is set for release on August 24. T.I. said it was going to be a more aggressive offering. Perhaps that's what jail time does to you? Makes you a bit harder? Despite being locked up for an entire year, T.I. said he did not do much writing while in the slammer, as he was not motivated to create.
"At this point...it's going hard. It's going hard like classic T.I.," he said.
T.I. is now on house arrest, probation and has to complete a run of community service as part of his sentence. He was arrested in 2007 after attempting to purchase firearms illegally. He did claim that he has learned and grown from his jail experience. Well, at least something good came out of it!
Do you think that T.I.'s jail experience will bleed over even more into his new album? Do you think that jail time is a badge of honor for musicians and celebs, and that they come out the other side stronger, wiser and better?
