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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
