For years, T.I. and Young Jeezy have worked closely with each other. However, the two did not have an opportunity to work as close as many would have liked. When both rappers were expected to hit their peaks, T.I. was sent to prison and Young Jeezy took a hiatus. Last fall, the two picked up where they left off, collaborating on Young Jeezy’s single, “F.A.M.E.”
The appearance on “F.A.M.E.” was good for a resurgent T.I., who had been out of the public eye for two years. Knowing the odds were against him, T.I. contributed verses to established hit singles and also collaborated with current artists. Making new music paired with his willingness to speak with the media, T.I. quickly re-established himself.
Back at center stage, T.I. is preparing to release his Trouble Man album this September and has numerous plans before the September 4 release date. There has been talk of T.I. doing an album with Young Jeezy, but T.I. said it would have to come after Atlanta regained its position in hip hop. In 2008, T.I. was very vocal about politics and intends to be in 2012, telling Sway Calloway on RapFix that he was voting for President Obama again.
