T.I. announced his return to music this week with the street single “I’m Back.” Now his Grand Hustle affiliate B.o.B reveals another new track that may appear on the King of the South’s first album since serving time behind bars.
B.o.B aka Bobby Ray has heard material from his label chief’s new project and is actually featured on one record titled “Dream Me Up” produced by Cut the Check. “Me and T.I. have a song that can potentially go on his album,” he tells Rap-Up.com. “I think it’ll definitely be a smash.”
Additionally, T.I. guests on a song called “5th Dimension” from B.o.B’s debut B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray. “I brought my guitar over, Tip was on the MPC, Lil C was on the keys. We just vibed out, rocked out a bit, and we came up with a pretty dope song.” Listen to him rapping the lyrics here.
Tip dropped some knowledge on his younger protégé, who’s enjoying success with his breakout single “Nothin’ on You.” “T.I. has given me a lot of advice and a lot of critique in the stages where I really needed it the most and he’s definitely like a mentor to me,” shares B.o.B.
T.I.’s seventh studio album is due August 24, while B.o.B’s Adventures arrives April 27. The latter can currently be seen on the “Steppin Laser” tour with Lupe Fiasco.
