As T.I. continues making his rounds speaking to kids as a condition before his sentencing, the rapper recently announced that his upcoming album, Paper Trail, is being pushed up to August.
According to the rapper, the album’s date being pushed from September to August is due to his buzz, thanks to the setup track, “No Matter What.”
“There was a great demand for the product,” said the Atlanta rapper. “Once we put out ‘No Matter What,’ we got so much positive response that we moved up the date.”
The Danja produced track leaked over a week ago to the internet, and has since been in high demand.
Despite moving the date up, T.I. has yet to announce the album’s first single, but did say he may choose a song titled “Top of the World,” featuring Kanye West.
“It’s a reflective song about our humble beginnings and how [far] we’ve come,” he said.
Paper Trial is now slated to hits stores on August 12 via Atlantic Records.
