TI Denounces and Renounces “Hunt ‘Em Down”

Paper Trail coming ASAP, ASAP

Hold ya horses! T.I. wants the world to know that a recently leaked track titled “Hunt ‘Em Down” will not be featured on his upcoming album Paper Trail. He says the track is inferior in quality when held to the standards of his next project. [via HipHopDX]

“I just wanted to say to you myself that the record that has been leaked – I think yall are calling it ‘Hunt Em Down’, when I did it, it was called ‘Got It Now’ – It is an unwarranted, unauthorized release,” T.I. says. “It is not a Paper Trail selection, it is not of the same standards and the same quality as the records that I’m doing right now so I don’t want anybody to get it misconstrued that that’s the first single.”

He thanked those who enjoyed the song but promised that the music he has coming from Paper Trail would be far superior to the song leaked to the public. T.I. then explains the origins of the song.

“Do not be fooled. It was actually the first song recorded after the big homie Philant died,” T.I. continues as he dismisses the song. “So there was a lot of rage, a lot of anger and a lot of frustrations on that record. It was never even meant to be released.”

I’m glad he cleared the air and explained this is the first recording he made after his manager, Philant Johnson was killed because it was a far cry from the “polished” image that Tip is looking to portray as he travels the nation and talks to troubled youth as part of his extraordinary plea deal with the federales. These are some excerpts from the audio message T.I. addressed to “Whom It May Concern, for whatever it’s worth…”
