New Music: T.I. f/ Pharrell – ‘Paperwork’

T.I. shares his tale of hustling on the title track off his upcoming album Paperwork. The Grand Hustle chief reminisces about learning the ropes from his Uncle Quentin and dealing drugs at age 17, while Pharrell provides the soulful hook and production.

“[It] pretty much kinda sums up the tone of the album,” Tip told MTV News of the track. “The cinematic presentation of it all. When you listen to the album, top to bottom, it kinda sounds like the score to a movie and I think ‘Paperwork’ is the perfect introduction to that.”

Paperwork drops October 21 featuring Usher, Chris Brown, Jeezy, Boosie, The-Dream, Rick Ross, and Pharrell, who also serves as the album’s executive producer.
