Last week T.I. announced the title of his forthcoming LP as Trouble Man, and released his new single Pyro.” Now the ATL rapper chops it up with Billboard and speaks on his Trouble Man album.

T.I. says he has 45 songs in the vault for the project:

“I always do a lot of recording, so I have around 45 songs right now. I’m diversifying the project, just recoding different types of music,”

As Tip continues he adds:

“A lot of times, I’m taking myself out of my element. This is the first project where I’m talking about things that I’ve experienced before that I’m not necessarily experiencing now, ’cause I’m not doing a whole lot of partying. I do a little bit, but not a lot … nothing like when I was in that life.”
