The tracklisting to incarcerated rapper T.I.'s No Mercy has leaked online and shows guest spots from Drake, Eminem, Scarface and more.
According to a leaked listing, T.I.'s new album will feature just over a dozen tracks.
1 Welcome To The World (feat. Kanye West & Kid Cudi) 2 How Life Changed (feat. Mitchelle'l & Scarface) 3 Get Back Up (feat. Chris Brown) 4 I Can't Help It (feat. Rocko) 5 That's All She Wrote (feat. Eminem) 6 No Mercy (feat. The-Dream) 7 Big Picture 8 Strip (feat. Young Dro & Trey Songz) 9 Salute 10 Amazing (feat. Pharrell) 11 Everything On Me 12 Poppin Bottles (feat. Drake) 13 Lay Me Down 14 Castle Walls (feat. Christina Aguilera) (Hip Hop N More)
Despite currently being behind bars, T.I. released a statement on the album earlier this month.
"This album represents some of my best work inspired by my most recent best and worst life experiences," stated an introspective Tip. "They say adversity brings forth inspiration so y'all can imagine how inspired I've been during the recording process for this album. I've been taking stock of myself and digesting eveyone's comments and criticisms. Now it's my turn to express myself and take you into my mind. The real won't hate and the truth won't wait! If God is with me who can be against me." (Rap-Up)
The project was originally speculated to feature a collaboration from Lady Gaga.
"Phenomenal talent. Extremely proud [to work with her]," Tip said about Gaga. "She's definitely that good. She knows what she's doing. She knows exactly what she wants people to think and say. She does everything that she needs to be done to ensure it happens...We gonna go back in and record some more songs...But the one we have right now is entitled 'Lick It.' I think we both have a tendency to shock the world in a lot of different ways." (MTV)
T.I.'s album is expected to be released in early December.
T.I. may be back behind bars, but like Lil Wayne, he's not letting that stop him from releasing a new album. The rapper announced Wednesday (Nov. 3) that "No Mercy," his much-anticipated first studio release since 2008's "Paper Trail," will hit stores on Dec. 7. "No Mercy's" lead single, "Get Back Up" featuring Chris Brown, is currently at No. 55 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and No. 25 on Rap Songs. The music video premiered Wednesday evening on BET's "106th and Park." (Billboard)
