Rapper T.I. has confirmed the name of his next album, which is scheduled to be released in February, 2012. T.I. tells Billboard.com that the late singer Marvin Gaye was the inspiration for his new album, aptly titled Trouble Man.
Even before his release from an Atlanta halfway house in late September, T.I. hit the recording studio to lay the tracks for his most personal album yet.
“Every where he goes, he stops through the studio,” says T.I.’s assistant.
“I have this one record [titled] ‘Pyro’ that I’m proud of,” T.I. told Billboard.com’s The Juice. “‘Pyro’ is a straight party record. It’s nostalgic of those crazy nights, early mornings [but] just turned up.”
Meanwhile, T.I. has been partying non-stop since his release. Last night, he and his wife Tiny hit up Club Primal to celebrate rapper Nelly’s 37th birthday.
