According to Tip, scheduling has been the only hiccup in getting the project up and running.
“I just wanna go and get started,” he told Billboard on Monday (Nov. 27). “You know, me and Young, we tend to go back and forth because Young, he does a lot of contemplating, which is very good, because that’s how you come up with the best ideas, but I just move. I’m ready to go.” (Billboard)
Back in 2015, T.I. said a personal matter had put a delay in getting the LP going.
“Yeah, we kept that idea going. We have music. I think the time that we had to do it, Jeezy had some sh*t going on—it was a positive, personal highlight for him, very positive—so he took a little time to himself to dedicate his time to that, which was very important. I won’t spill no beans on that or let no cat out of no bag; he just had something personal he had to deal with, a positive thing. And now it’s about him getting back into his solo sh*t and me getting my solo sh*t together. So we just got to find the time, you know what I mean? The music is there, we just have to find the time to actually dedicate to it.” (XXL Mag)
In 2014, T.I. revealed scheduling conflicts delayed the joint effort.
“We’ve been talking about it for years, but we finally putting the execution part of it in the works. Usually, when we talking about it, either he’s working on finishing his album or I’m working on finishing mine. This is like one of the first times that we both putting our albums out around the same time. I’m done with my process, he’s done with his process, now we can collectively come together and do something together.” (MTV)
