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.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
