T.I. Has Been Recording With Young Jeezy For Joint Album

By Rob Markman

T.I.  has already confirmed that he’s working on the joint LP The Man and the Martian with B.o.B. but during a Wednesday visit to “RapFix Live” he revealed that he’s already banked a few tracks with Young Jeezy for a collabo album as well.

“I got a few albums that I’m workin’ on: the Man and the Martian project with B.o.B; me and Jeezy been talkin’ about doin’ this project for a minute,” T.I. told Sway. “It wouldn’t take us long to do. We got records already in the can and it don’t take us no time to put it together. It’s just a matter of when they would be released.”

Right now Tip is focused on Trouble Man, his eighth solo album, which is slated for a September 4 release. Then there is the tag-team LP with B.o.B — considering that Bobby Ray is signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle label, the pair’s Man and the Martian album is more than a fantasy project.

When it comes to a project with Jeezy, the King of the South says that the studio work isn’t the problem: Getting the album out in stores is the tricky part. “It’s not the recording, the recording is easy. It’s a matter of when we would have time to market and promote ‘em and release ‘em,” T.I. said. “We got maybe 30 or 40 [percent done]. Between the two of us, we probably got five or six records.”
