T.I. talks new album

T.I.

T.I. has unveiled details of his upcoming new album, “PAPER TRAIL.”

Today, May 7th, BET News will present an exclusive half-hour special, entitled T.I. Speaks. In his first televised interview since a plea bargain on weapon charges, T.I directly answers tough questions from host Toure and a group of at-risk students about his life and future after being sentenced to a year in prison. The ATL-based hip-hop icon details how the ordeal has changed his life and delivers a strong message about decision-making.

“I must be a man and stand up and accept responsibility,” T.I. says. “I exercised extremely poor judgment, and for that, I must be willing to pay whatever price that comes before me.”

“PAPER TRAIL” follows T.I.’s two previous #1 albums, 2007’s “T.I. vs T.I.P.” and 2006’s RIAA platinum-certified “KING.” With an unparalleled track record of hit singles – including “Top Back,” “Big Things Poppin’ (Do It),” “Why You Wanna,” and the Grammy Award-winning “What You Know” – T.I. is without question one of hip-hop’s greatest stars. In addition to his multiple Grammy Awards, T.I. has been the recipient of a wide variety of honors, including BET Awards, BET Hip-Hop Awards, and Billboard Music Awards.
