T.I. Taps Into New Orleans Bounce on New Single with Lil Wayne

Turn on the radio today and you’re bound to hear a song helmed by Rico Love. In the last few months alone, the Division1 CEO has landed Rick Ross’ first single “Touch’N You,” burned up the charts with Trey Songz’ “Heart Attack,” and put his stamp all over Usher’s latest album Looking 4 Myself.

And he’s got another smash on the way for T.I. Rico, along with Earl & E, produced “Ball,” the next single off Tip’s upcoming album Trouble Man, due September 4. The New Orleans bounce record features Lil Wayne and should premiere any day now.

“I’m not trying to be cocky, but I pretty much know that that’s gonna be a hit record,” Mr. Turn the Lights On told Rap-Up TV. “I know it’s gon’ tear up the club. I’m really confident in the record. I know we got a bonafide club banger with that one.”

He also revealed a collaboration between Tip and Cee Lo Green, produced by Pharrell. “T.I.’s about to come with that one-two punch,” he said.
