Lady Gaga’s highly-anticipated collaboration with T.I. is in limbo. The pop perfectionist may be scrapping the current song she recorded with the rapper so she can create something even more spectacular.
The unnamed T.I.-Gaga record was set to appear on his album King Uncaged, but its future is in jeopardy. “[Gaga] brought it to my knowledge that she would like to top what we already have,” Tip exclusively told Rap-Up.com. “That being said, I don’t know if that’s going to be a keeper or if that’s going to be one-upped or what not.”
The King of the South considers the megastar to be “a phenomenal talent and a wonderful lady,” joking that he had to beg to score some of her precious time. “I begged on hands and knees, please!” he laughed.
T.I. explained how their paths crossed when Rap-Up TV interviewed him at the MTV Movie Awards in June. “I worked with the producer RedOne and made it known that I was interested in working with her and the enthusiasm was shared, and we were able to get it done.”
In addition to Gaga, Tip also mentioned that he was recently in the studio with Kanye West in Hawaii. “It went wonderfully,” he said of their sessions. “We recorded six to seven songs in two to three days.”
