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.”
