T.I. (born Clifford Harris) launched his comeback party with a new street offering titled “I’m Back,” yesterday (March 8).
Before releasing the record to the masses, Tip held a conference call with an assortment of DJs around the country thanking them for their ongoing support during his brief bid.
“I figured there were a lot of things that needed to be spoken on in my absence,” Harris said of “I’m Back.” “There were a lot of things that went down and a lot of matters that needed to be addressed and this was the greatest platform for me to do it.”
Tip explained that “I’m Back” isn’t the first single from his upcoming album, an opus scheduled to hit stores August 24. “This isn’t an official first single, just something to re-introduce myself to the market place,” T.I. told the DJs. “This is more of a statement record.”
