The 'I'm Flexin' ' rapper is considering to choose between 'Kill the King' and 'Trouble' as title for his upcoming studio album.
T.I. is back to studio in no time after he's released from prison. Beside doing a remix for a number of songs including Ke$ha's "Sleazy", the Atlanta rapper is also crafting his own new studio effort, and already he has mulled over ideas for a possible title that suits the upcoming CD.
"Kill the King," T.I. reveals to Rolling Stone. "Because in all that I've gone through I've observed how people respond to my circumstances, and I always wonder 'Why y'all coming at me like this?' But I thought, 'How do you expect them to act?' Life is a game of chess and the object is to kill the king. If you anoint yourself king, you have made yourself a target."
"Trouble" is another option T.I. is considering to pick up for the title of his post-prison album. Seemingly referring to his woes which led him to stay in jail for ten months, the "Dead and Gone" hitmaker simply explains to the publication that it's a "self-explanatory" one.
Dishing on the progress of the album, T.I. says he has already got a few songs with his longtime collaborator Pharrell Williams. "[It's] some hip-hop rap s**t," he gushes of the new material. "We're just going in for four minutes rapping."
While finishing the album, T.I. is also preparing a music video for his first single "I'm Flexin'" featuring Big K.R.I.T. Additionally, he plans to work on a mixtape with Grand Hustle MC B.o.B, who recently released a new single "Strange Clouds" featuring Lil Wayne.
