T.I. Considering ‘Watch the Throne’-Esque Collaborative Album with B.o.B
Since the success of Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative effort 'Watch the Throne,' many are wondering who could be next to team up for a joint album? Well, T.I. has come out to say that he might create a duet album with his Grand Hustle artist B.o.B.
During his interview with MTV News personality Sway, the Atlanta rapper hinted of maybe producing a 'Watch the Throne'-esque project with the 'Airplanes' rapper. "We're actually flirting with the idea of doin' an album together called 'The Man and the Martian,'" says Tip. "We just been compiling material, he and I together, and it's coming out real good."
Granted, it's a weird album title, but a collaborative project between T.I. and B.o.B would be an awesome pairing. It will also introduce Bobby Ray's pop audience to Tip.
Surprisingly, T.I. has always wanted to do a duet album with another artist but the opportunity has never come to fruition. "I spoke to Usher about doing one of those before [in 2007 or 2008]," he recalls. "[But] the stars and the moon hadn't aligned appropriately."
In the meantime, T.I. can be heard on a slew of one-off collaborative bangers including 'F.A.M.E.' (Featuring Young Jeezy), 'I'm Flexin' (Featuring Big K.R.I.T.) and 'Here Ye, Here Ye' (Featuring Pharrell Williams).
