Only a month ago, T.I. was still in prison serving his one year sentence. It appeared as if he were going to be in there until May of this year. Many of his fans were hoping and praying that the king of the South would be released early to bring the people the music that they want to hear. It was as if their prayers were answered when it was revealed that T.I. would be released to a halfway house.
Immediately after this news was released to the public, it was revealed that he was already back in the studio. In between spending time with his family and friends, T.I. would be working on new music. At the time, he was recording just to rebuild himself. It was said that if he were able to get back to the level that he was on before he went to prison that he would begin recording a new album. The music that he had just recorded was too good to go to waste.
There have only been a few weeks to pass since it was revealed that he was even getting out of prison early. Now, it appears that T.I. is wasting no time getting back into the studio to record what will be his seventh studio album, King Muzik. He is rumored to go about this album all by himself. There are said to be no guest appearances on this album.
T.I. would like for this album to be his classic album and the album where he finally becomes the king of the South. In order to do this, he will have to go at it alone. While there is no set release date for this new album, it will probably be released sometime in the third or fourth quarter of this year. The album will be released on his Grand Hustle label and Atlantic Records.
