Nearly forgotten, as he was completing his prison sentence, T.I. announced he would come back stronger than ever. Given the situation he placed himself in, not many were rooting for T.I. the second time around. T.I. was among the hardest on himself and he did all he could to regain his position in the game following his September 2011 release.
T.I. became the most-discussed rapper in the final two months of 2011, releasing several songs and a mixtape. Working closely with B.o.B., the two announced their albums for early 2012 releases and also announced a collaborative album. The T.I. album was revealed to be Trouble Man, but has yet to be given a release date.
Earlier today, T.I. leaked the first official single from Trouble Man, “Like That,” on Hot 97. He made his appearance on Hot 97 with DJ Drama. During the interview, T.I. revealed the second season of his reality show, “The Family Hustle,” would start on September 3. Tip went on to reveal the following day would be when his Trouble Man album would finally be released.
