Before T.I. finally unveils his eighth studio album Trouble Man, the Atlanta rapper will drop the new mixtape F-- Da City Up on New Year’s Day. To tease the upcoming release Tip put out a mixtape trailer on December 20 and this week he followed up with a new clip, which finds him hobnobbing in the studio with Dr. Dre.
In the 50 second black-and-white clip T.I. is filmed as he records, while Dr. Dre hangs out, listening to the new music.
Tip says he's working on "developing that chemistry" with the West Coast veteran.
Speaking with MTV News, Tip said that the two were “creating chemistry” for the tape and that he wants to work closer with the West Coast veteran.
“Dre was here. He sent for me over to the spot. We really just turned up more than anything else. It was about creating chemistry," he said.
T.I. previously worked with Dre on the song “Topless,” leaked several years ago and supposedly intended for Detox. For now, he’s intent on developing their working relationship.
"Of course we can get together, he got hot beats and I got dope rhymes, so we can always get together and make music," he continued. "But for people to feel what we're sayin' and for it to sound like a party comin' through your speakers, you gonna have to create some chemistry. So that's what we spent more time doin' than anything else; developing that chemistry."
