T.I. Album Cover For Paper Trail

15 07 2008


I’m really feeling the creativity in Hip-Hop.  I’m feeling T.I.’s idea on this album cover.  He’s making this album so personal and rich, it’s going to be hard not to accept it.  The whole idea behind the album cover, I’m a fan of and the music is banging too, especially WHAT UP!  Say what you want about me diggin T.I. right now.  Son is on his grind!!!!


Here’s the news!!!


T.I. is going avant-garde on his new LP, Paper Trail — and that’s not just in regard to the music we’ll hear. Tip revealed the cover of the September 9 release to MTV News on Monday (July 14). It features a conceptual drawing of the potent MC made of scraps of paper.

“We didn’t want to just do a typical cover, especially for my sixth album,” T.I. told us via e-mail. “I wanted to try something a little more different. The illustration for Paper Trail pays an obvious homage to my rekindled affinity for writing my lyrics down as well as displays my commitment to keep my art slanted towards the abstract.”

Several days ago, Tip’s camp released a two-fisted dose of his music: the street record “What Up” and his next single, “Swing Your Rag.” The latter was produced by Swizz Beatz, and Drumma Boy (Young Jeezy and Kanye West’s “Put On,” Rocko’s “Umma Do Me”) supplied the beat for “What Up.”

“Tip is just spitting about what he stands for, how he feels,” Drumma said about his collaboration. “He’s saying, ‘What up? Everybody is talking. What up to all my haters.’ We’re just giving the customer what they want. Accomplishing our mission.”
