Now that Ant-Man has conquered the box office to the tune of $56 million its first weekend in theaters, T.I. can focus back to what he does best. And that’s trapping in the studio.
It will now be known as The Dime Trap. The album still holds a tentative release date of October 10 but like the title, that is also subject to change.
“My tenth album, The Dime Trap, I’m working on it,” he explained. “I just released the first teaser from it yesterday and it’s going to be an extension or a continuation of the vibe from Trap Muzik. I feel like, when you’ve done hits like ‘Whatever You Like’ and ‘Dead and Gone,’ when you do those mainstream kind of ‘Blurred Lines’-ish kind of records, you don’t go and try to top ‘Blurred Lines.’ You just come to a whole new element, bring it back down and build the process back over again. I’m breaking it all down, back to the element of where my music first began to interest people, and build it all over again.”
The Atlanta rap star recently released a video for the single “Project Steps,” which may appear on The Dime Trap’s final tracklisting.
