A whole bunch of intriguing details for T.I.’s upcoming album, Paperwork, have surfaced. So without further ado, the information…
We have definitely decided on ‘Paperwork’ featuring Pharrell [because it] pretty much kinda sums up the tone of the album. The cinematic presentation of it all. When you listen to the album, top to bottom, it kinda sounds like the score to a movie and I think ‘Paperwork’ is the perfect introduction to that.
T.I. also revealed that the Pharrell executive produced album will be laden with features from Rick Ross, The-Dream, Lil Boosie, Jeezy, Trae Tha Truth, Nipsey Hussle, Problem, and more.
We can expect Paperwork to drop “somewhere in Libra season,” with the Grand Hustle compilation album tentatively slated for December. One more T.I. quotable to cap it off — about Paperwork being the first album in a trilogy.
The sound sonically of this one is soulful, musical, kinda like [OutKast’s] Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik or Aquemini or [Jay Z’s] Blueprint. It just has an incredible amount of soul and a perfect hybrid between the ahead-of-the-curve, new-school sound and the classic, nostalgic, soulful sound of yesteryear.
