T.I. is back and announced he “set out to make the album of his career.”
The Atlanta rapper finally broke his music hiatus, dropping his 10th studio album Dime Trap. Hype around the long-awaited album started in 2015, after his LP release Paperwork. The 15-track project features some major names, like Teyana Taylor, Jeezy, Anderson .Paak and more. Not to mention his previously released singles “Wraith” featuring Yo Gotti, “Jefe” with Meek Mill, and “The Weekend” with Young Thug.
T.I. sat down with our very own J Cruz on The Cruz Show and said Dime Trap will be like the “TED talk to Trap Muzik,” which was his 2003 sophomore album. He also revealed how Dave Chappelle came to be on the album, narrating throughout it as if he was T.I. himself. Watch the full interview here.
In another interview, the rapper, father and business man opened up about how his family life inspired him for this project.
“This was the first time I musically addressed some of the challenges and transgressions that I have had as a husband. I just felt that I had to lay it out, I had to put my cards face up on the table.”
Along with Dime Trap’s release, T.I. dropped the visual for “Wraith.” Stream the album and watch the music video below!
