New music from T.I.’s forthcoming album Trouble Man, in the form of the Weezy-assisted track ”Ball”.
The Rico Love and Earl & E produced number is essentially New Orleans bounce, and should do well in the clubs, even if its sound is a little more suited to the mid ’00s than the present. Commenting on “Ball” in a recent interview, Tip said “It’s a dope record. It’s high energy, party, Southern club, fancy shit.” I wouldn’t disagree with any of that.

T.I., Wayne, Birdman and Rico Love were also busy filming the visuals for “Ball” in Hollygrove (the area where Wayne was raised in New Orleans) recently. Check out some fan-captured footage here. Trouble Man, T.I.’s eighth studio album, drops on 18th December.
