“Don’t ruin the event. Wait till the cake comes out the kitchen before you eat it. That’s like a kid who sees his toys before Christmas; it takes away from me and I think it takes away from the fans as well. When it’s time, I’mma give it to you. They leaked my record with me and The-Dream [“Like I Do”] too. Leakage is never a problem I have had. I’m not used to it.”
–T.I. tells MTV News on the early leak of his new song, “Swagger Like Us,” featuring Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne. In addition to appearing first on T.I.’s Paper Trail, the track will also be included on Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3 due later this year.
As we first reported, Tip is rumored to be performing his new single with Rihanna at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards on September 7th.
