First, T.I. has to take care of some things to rebuild his buzz. When a rapper has been away as long as T.I. has, they have to appear on other music before coming back. So far, T.I. has collaborations lined up with the likes of Juelz Santana, Drake, and Kanye West.
Those artists already have significant buzz, but Diddy does not. He needs T.I. just as much as T.I. needs him. For his latest album, Last Train to Paris, Diddy has recruited a lot of big names. Among those names is now T.I. It is unknown exactly what track that he will appear on.
Diddy plans to release Last Train to Paris on June 22, 2010 on Bad Boy Records and Interscope Records.
