T.I. is taking us back to his roots on his upcoming eighth studio album.

Inspired by Marvin Gaye’s 1972 soundtrack, the King has titled the album “Trouble Man.”

In the next few days (possibly even today)…..he will be releasing his new single “Pyro,” which is supposedly a stand-out track on the project.

“I have this one record [called] ‘Pyro’ that I’m proud of. Pyro’ is a straight party record. It’s nostalgic of those crazy nights, early mornings [but] just turned up,” he tells Billboard.

As for “Trouble Man”, T.I. admits it will be more focused on things he’s experienced in the past rather than the present.

“A lot of times I’m taking myself out of my element,” Tip explained. “This is the first project where I’m talking about things that I’ve experienced before that I’m not necessarily experiencing now ’cause I’m not doing a whole lot of partying. I do a little bit but not a lot, nothing like when I was in that life.”

Are you looking forward to T.I.’s new album???
