When Rap-Up.com spoke with B.o.B last month, he remained tight-lipped about his collaboration with Taylor Swift. But during an interview at SXSW, his Grand Hustle boss T.I. confirmed the existence of the rumored record, which is set to appear on B.o.B’s sophomore album Strange Clouds.
When asked by Fuse about the song, B.o.B reiterated his stance. “I can neither confirm nor deny such allegations,” he said.
But Tip put the rumors to rest once and for all. “I can. I heard it,” he laughed, adding, “Taylor’s extended Hustle Gang. She a part of the crew. She just ain’t got her dog tags yet.”
B.o.B connected with the country sweetheart after performing with her in Dallas. “She came to Atlanta and she hit up Grand Hustle,” he said. “I wasn’t there. Tip was there and I eventually linked with her in Dallas and the rest is history.”
T.I. also talked about the newest Hustle Gang members including Chip and Iggy Azalea. “She probably one of the dopest female rappers to come around in a long time,” he said of the Australian femcee. “I think she gon’ break ground and make history.”
Strange Clouds drops May 1 and Tip is aiming to release Trouble Man between June and August. “Look forward to those summertime anthems that we’ve grown to love about T.I.”
