(AllHipHop News) With his eight studio album, Trouble Man, currently set for a September 4 release, T.I. has been making the press rounds talking about his new material, as well as where the status of some long-rumored collaboration albums are. Tip told MTV‘s “RapFix”, “I got a few albums that I’m workin’ on: the Man and the Martian project with B.o.B; me and Jeezy been talkin’ about doin’ this project for a minute. It wouldn’t take us long to do. We got records already in the can and it don’t take us no time to put it together. It’s just a matter of when they would be released.”

When he was further pressed for information regarding his work with Jeezy, Tip told show host Sway, “It’s not the recording, the recording is easy. It’s a matter of when we would have time to market and promote ‘em and release ‘em,” T.I. said. “We got maybe 30 or 40 [percent done]. Between the two of us, we probably got five or six records.”

Def Jam recording artist The-Dream has announced  the release date for his upcoming fourth studio album, Love IV. The three-time, Grammy Award-winning singer released a statement recently that read: “Love IV is the best album I’ve made. I don’t care what the sales will be.

“I will do my best to Challenge your Taste And Knowledge…….I will Leave no Holes in this Album Period, no room to be Hated only Adored or simply just say “you don’t f### with me” but what U won’t….Say is Dream Album is Mediocre or Sucks. I will Never Be your Star I’m to G and to Westside for that. I will never Sellout Arenas…..Because Since Love Hate I didn’t Sellout! And no matter how much you hate me you got to Respect that! AUGUST 14.”

According to KicksOnFire, Kanye West and Nike’s highly-anticipated new shoe, the Air Yeezy 2, will be available at retailers on June 9. Word is that the sneakers will be released in extremely limited quantities.
