T.I. to ring in New Year's with new mixtape
T.I. is celebrating his (third) comeback with a new mixtape.
Since his release from prison in September after serving an 11-month sentence (his second stint in jail), the rapper-actor, born Clifford Harris Jr., has launched an aggressive comeback that includes a hit family reality show currently airing on VH1 "T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle"; a novel, “Power & Beauty”; and an awkward duet with America’s sweetheart Taylor Swift.
Before the self-proclaimed King of the South unveils his highly anticipated eighth album, “Trouble Man,” he's issuing a new mixtape right as the ball drops on New Year’s Day. He has spent the last week promoting the mixtape, “… Da City Up,” with tweets and video trailers that have included footage of him working with Dr. Dre and Young Jeezy.
Check out a mixtape trailer at Rapdose.com. Yes, there is adult language. "Trouble Man" is tentatively set for release in February.
