New Music: T.I. f/ Pink – ‘Guns and Roses’

Pink and T.I.

T.I. rocks with fellow rebel Pink on “Guns and Roses,” one of the many collaborations off his eighth album Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head. The King weathers the ups and downs of love, while the pop-rocker shares her pain on the T-Minus-produced song, which Tip describes as a “bittersweet romantic story.”

“We found that we had a few things in common,” T.I. tells Rap-Up.com of his collaborator. “We clicked. She real people, she from the streets. I’m a real cat, I’m from the streets. We found ourselves in rooms where we were like, ‘You know what? These people fake as hell in here. Let’s get out of here.’”

Due Tuesday, Trouble Man also includes appearances from R. Kelly, André 3000, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, CeeLo Green, Akon, and more.

Rap-Up TV: T.I. Talks ‘Trouble Man’ Sequel, Pink and André 3000 Collaborations

T.I. recorded over 120 songs and had to narrow it down to 16 that would make his new album Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, available December 18. So what will become of the unused material? The King exclusively tells Rap-Up TV that he plans to drop a sequel called Trouble Man: He Who Wears the Crown.

He also shares details about his collaboration with fellow rebel Pink on the T-Minus-produced “Guns and Roses,” which he describes as a “bittersweet romantic story.”

“We found that we had a few things in common,” says Tip of the pop-rocker. “We clicked. She real people, she from the streets. I’m a real cat, I’m from the streets. We found ourselves in rooms where we were like, ‘You know what? These people fake as hell in here. Let’s get out of here.’”

And while T.I. admits that André 3000 outshined on “Sorry,” he’s not mad. “He did get down on me on my record, I can’t front,” laughs Tip. “But to me I’m honored and it’s a pleasure that he would even choose my record to do that on.”

Upon hearing the feedback in his favor, the OutKast rapper called T.I. to thank him for bringing out the best in him. “That’s real classy of you to say that, but you still shitted on me on my own record,” Tip told André.

Here comes trouble. Pink and Eminem tear up the club on their new collaboration “Here Comes the Weekend” off Pink’s upcoming album The Truth About Love, due September 18. The pop superstar sets off sirens on the “alternative club banger,” produced by DJ Khalil, while Em raises hell with his rowdy rhymes.

“I’m not Puffy, but I’ma run the city tonight/ When I hit it, I might act like a friggin’ idiot,” raps Slim Shady over the thumping bassline.

The rebellious duo previously collaborated on “Won’t Back Down” off Em’s 2010 album Recovery.

“I said, ‘Do you want to do a song with me?’ and he said, ‘F**k yeah!’ Handshake. Nothing signed. Done,” Pink told Australia’s Herald Sun of how their latest record came about.
