If you’re waiting on T.I.’s “King Uncaged” album to hit shelves September 28th, don’t hold your breath. The kaaang may be uncaged but he’s can’t be cooped up in the studio right now, especially since he’s got a new movie to promote!

Tip explains why he decided to wait on the album:
I pushed the album back so I could completely focus my attention to the roll out and release of this film, Takers, which will be coming out August 27th.
I felt it wouldn’t be fair to the movie or the album if I was splitting my attention span amongst the two…
Since hearing Tip speak is way more fun than reading his words on a page, check out video of Tip’s full explanation of why he’s choosing movies over music:
I hit pause on the album to completely focus my attention to rolling out this here film. And once we prayerfully debut No. 1—25-plus, 20-plus million—then after those bottles have been popped and that celebration has been underway, I will completely resubmerge myself back into the music, fully on album mode.
T.I. has three to four more weeks worth of recording left to finish the album. He’s already done over 100 songs and has to narrow them down to 14 which will make the final cut. He says he plans to get back in the studio to record more material once the movie arrives in theaters.
There you have it… The Kaaaang has spoken!
Is it me or has Tip put on a few pounds??
