DJ Drama has confirmed reports that he is working on T.I.‘s F*ck A Mixtape project and said fans could expect guest appearance by Lil Wayne.
Drama said the rapper’s first post-prison release would appeal to the streets.
Without giving away too many details, Tip’s longtime associate DJ Drama, confirmed with XXLMag.com that he will be hosting the tape, and fans, especially those from the King of the South’s hometown, are sure to love the new songs. “He was doing his pushups and his situps, [and] now we about to have the streets in a frenzy,” Dram said. “I’ll just put it to you like this, Bankhead Zone One is gonna love this.” Promising a lot of surprise guests, one rapper that the tightlipped DJ says will definitely appear on the tape is Lil Wayne.

Details on the mixtape began to circulate online earlier this week.
With his prison sentence finished as of March 26, T.I. is officially back and apparently looking to make a statement via the mixtape game. The ATL rapper could very well drop one of the better mixtapes of this year, as long as DJ Drama keeps the drops and shouting to a minimum. That might sound a little premature, but come on, we all heard the absolutely great “I’m Back.” And the fact he’s apparently returning to his grittier roots on his upcomingalbum should at least show that T.I.’s likely looking to kill it lyrically. Details remain up in the air on who will make a guest appearance F*ck A Mixtape, but I think we’ll at least hear B.o.B spit a verse or two. (Prefix Mag)
The project will be followed-up by his solo album, King Uncaged.
T.I. is breaking free with his seventh studio album. The Atlanta rapper has announced a title for his next release. The follow-up to 2008’s double-platinum Paper Trail will go by the name of King Uncaged, it was revealed today via Tip’s website TrapMuzik.com. He has been recording with Jim Jonsin, B.o.B, Danja, and The Runners for the August 24 release. A buzz single “I’m Back” is currently No. 65 on the Billboard Hot 100. (Rap-Up)
T.I. recently promised “aggressive” content on his upcoming solo album.
“I’m happy to be home,” T.I. said in a video. “I learned a lot, grew a lot and now I think it’s time to put all that to good use. I didn’t write too much, people might thought I was doing a lot of writing but I didn’t write that much, you know. I didn’t get a lot of time to. It was a lot of activity around me so I wasn’t really motivated to create. I just want to continue to maintain the level of success I’ve been fortunate to do over and over again over the years. Well, this album is different in many ways. I think that Paper Trail was a lot more about thoughts and this is more about feelings. And this is significantly more aggressive, at this point in the production. Who knows, I could do ten love songs tomorrow and change the direction but as of right now, it’s going hard. It’s going hard like classic T.I.” (Trap Muzik)
