T.I.

Word is Atlanta rapper T.I. has already started work on his follow up to his platinum studded album Paper Trail. MTV News says he’s already recorded 20 tracks to prepare for the new project, which is set to be released sometime in 2010. A lot of the tracks were recorded straight from the top of his dome!

“I’m doing it half and half,” he told MTV of his writing process. “It depends on the type of record I’m doing. I have records now I did and I just went and did it like I used to, and I got some where I wrote it down. I’m not committing myself to one way or another. It’d have to be an infusion, just depending on what sort of album I want to make.” [Watch Below]

“Recording is never a problem for me,” he added. “I’m able to record any time. Through the best of times and through the worst of times, I’m still able to record. It may change the sort of song you do, but you never can tell. You never know until that moment gets there.”

In addition to the upcoming 2010 album release, the Grand Hustle HNIC will also be re-releasing Paper Trail with 5 brand new songs as well as other content. No word on when that album will drop, but T.I. has until May of this year to turn himself in to serve time for those illegal weapons charges.
