“I just wanna go and get started,” he said. “You know, me and Young, we tend to go back and forth because Young, he does a lot of contemplating, which is very good, because that’s how you come up with the best ideas, but I just move. I’m ready to go.”
T.I. and Jeezy have already been tauting with the idea of a collaborative recording for a number of years now. At the tail end of 2014, the two Atlanta rappers revealed they recorded a number of songs jointly and were finally starting to associated with project a reality. But with every passing year, it’s appeared less and less most likely.
“I think at the time that we were really on it. I think he got busy and I went on tour,” Jeezy said of the collaboration. “You know, Tip’s my brother, and he’s always going to be. The one thing that I’m going to say about Tip is that he’s always going to have great ideas. So me and him threw a couple of things back and forth. He talked about an album, I talked about a movie, and we’ve just been back and forth about it ever since. He wants to do an album and I want to do a movie. So if we can do a movie with a soundtrack, I think we’re good. [Laughs]”
T.I. admits he’s not ruling out the idea of a film.
“I’m not closed-minded to that,” he said. “I just told him it’s going to take much longer to do the movie. Like a movie could take us a year to do and get the script right and get everything together. You can’t just throw it together, whereas with the album, I feel like we can finish in a week. This was my argument. But for as long as it’s taking us to do this album, we might as well have done a movie. So, he might be right.”
