T.I. is making a strong return after the release of his last LP four years ago with his tenth studio album, Dime Trap. The 15-track project was initially slated to be released in 2015 and was said to be the follow-up for Tip’s sophomore album, Trap Muzik.
The 38-year-old MC told Zane Lowe in a recent Beats 1 interview that the album will touch on some of his family issues.
“This was the first time I musically addressed some of the challenges and transgressions that I have had as a husband,” he said. “I’ve always kind of shied away from even speaking on those types of topics in my music […] I just felt that I had to lay it out, I had to put my cards face up on the table.”
Dime Trap includes the previously released singles “Jefe” with Meek Mill, “Wraith” featuring Yo Gotti, and “The Weekend” assisted by Young Thug. Other guest artists include Teyana Taylor, Jeezy, YFN Lucci, and London Jae.
The album is narrated by Dave Chappelle, who plays the voice in T.I’s head. The Atlanta rapper hosted a listening party with iHeart Radio and he explained how the comedian landed the role.
