Check out the newest leak from T.I.’s upcoming “Paper Trail” project. The song was produced by Kanye West and includes an addictive sample from M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes,” where she declares “No one on the corner got swagger like us.” As the producer of the track, I guess it was Kanye’s call to start off the track with his vocals: “I know I got it first/ I’m Christopher Columbus, y’all just the Pilgrims/ How it feel to wake up and be the sh–and the urine?/ Nah-na-na, trying to get that Kobe number, one over Jordan.” Jay’s next up — “You can pay for school, but you can’t buy class” — Weezy’s third and Tip is the closer.
Word on the street is that Tip is furious about “Swagger Like Us” (or “S.L.U.) being leaked so soon. What he had to say about it and the download link under the cut:
“Don’t ruin the event,” he lamented. “Wait till the cake comes out the kitchen before you eat it. That’s like a kid who sees his toys before Christmas; it takes away from me and I think it takes away from the fans as well. When it’s time, I’mma give it to you. They leaked my record with me and The-Dream [“Like I Do”] too. Leakage is never a problem I have had. I’m not used to it.” (Source)
I’m sorry Tip. Don’t blame me…blame these mean internet streets!
