T.I. says that he's hard at work on the follow-up to last year's disappointed No Mercy. The 'King of the South' says that he expects to release the new album sometime early in 2012. and that he plans to release it early next year. The Big KRIT-assisted single "I'm Flexin'" has already generated some buzz for the rapper.
"I've narrowed it down between two album titles, and I haven't chosen which one it's going to be yet," he explained. "However, I recorded between 25 to 30 songs so far, and I'm trying to get the album shaped and ready to go for early next year."
"I don't know about a mixtape, champ. I'm focused so much on the album that if I do a mixtape, it'll be a collective effort with me and the new priorities at Grand Hustle," he said. "I'm doing a lot of work to rebuild and reshape the structure of this company, and once we finalize exactly what that's going to be and who that will consist of, I will take those new pieces and we will together probably do a mixtape, introducing that new outfit to the world."
