Lsiten to T.I. on iHeartRadio

T.I. is putting his "Trouble Man 2" album on the back-burner. 

The title was originally slated to be his ninth solo venture and a follow-up to his 2012 album Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head.  

Now, the emcee tells MTV News that he's postponing that title after the album began to take a different shape from what he envisioned.  He assures fans that the "album isn't lost," but merely on hold for the moment.  

In the meantime, Tip says he hasn't settled on a new title for his ninth album, which will be released on Columbia Records and will be produced by Pharrell.  Nevertheless, he knows the title will make the album seem like an "instant classic."
