T.I. Wants To 'Cast A Wider Net' With New Album

(Radio.com) T.I. is back in a big way. The rapper followed the release of his eighth studio album, Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head, last December with an appearance on Robin Thicke's summer smash "Blurred Lines" and a spot on Lil Wayne's America's Most Wanted Festival 2013 summer tour.

During a break on the tour, T.I. spoke with Hartford's Hot 93.7 (a Radio.com station) about his upcoming full-length, Trouble Man II: He Who Wears the Crown, due for release this December, and how he wants to make the sequel release his inclusive album to date.

"I'm going to try to make sure that it's as grounded as it was the last time, I just want to make it a little broader," the rapper revealed when asked about the sound of the upcoming collection. "I just want to cast a wide net this time.

"I don't want to classify a type or a genre," T.I. clarified when asked if he'd be venturing into pop territory on the album. "I want to broaden the scope of people who would be able to relate to the music. But I do not want to sacrifice or compromise any of the integrity of the music." more on this story
