T.I. Asks That You Buy "Paper Trail" If You Liked the Leak

September 26, 2008 3:33 PM ET

By now, T.I. safely assumes that you've either heard or downloaded the leak of his new album Paper Trail. With that in mind, Tip kindly asks that you purchase the album when it comes out next Tuesday, September 30th — but only if you've enjoy the record. "I understand we live in an information age and an age of technology," T.I. says as he exits a Starbucks in the video above. "People want to hear your album before it comes out so they know that what they're buying is actually worth their money, and I ain't got a problem with that." T.I. does have a problem who benefit off of his hard work, however, so he asks that you "support his purse." After all, all those lawyer fees he's accrued aren't going to pay themselves.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
