Rap mogul Diddy has announced that his upcoming Last Train to Paris album will feature a collaboration with rapper T.I.
According to Diddy, the solo project will drop in early summer.
"Daddy's home baby! I'm here playing Last Train to Paris for the Interscope staff," Diddy told radio host Tim Westwood. "The US release date is June 22nd. So I'm letting you know, it's breaking news right here. Letting the world know, June 22nd. Why is it June 22nd? Because we want to set it up the right way. We wanna take our time, drop two more singles, drop a bunch of videos, we wanna come over here and do some shows and small venues, we wanna connect with some UK artists -- as a matter of fact, I have this record called 'Hello, Good Morning' and I'm looking, for the American version, T.I.'s on it, I'm looking to build with a UK artist for the UK version. I wanna do something real real special." (Tim Westwood TV)
Diddy said he is also saving space for artists like singer Janelle Monae.
"On Last Train to Paris, Wayne is on the album, Drake is on the album, we're trying to get Hov on the album, trying to get Janelle Monae on the album," Diddy said in an interview. "Everybody that's on the album, it's not done in a regular appearance way. It's done in a unique way that's authentic. It's not about a single or [album sales]. It doesn't have that behind it. Wayne is on a record that's called 'Strobe Lights.' It's one of the first records where I hear him talking about love and how love has affected him. That's the type of things I wanted to get out of people if they were on the album. I wanted people to get out of their comfortzone and do something that was special. He did the video for me over the weekend. 'Strobe Lights,' it's gonna be tough." (MTV)
Diddy recently said his rap lyrics have been improving.
"On the rap tip, everybody's like, 'Come on Puff, we want you to give it to us the way you used to,'" Puff explained to radiopersonality Tim Westwood. "Like, take it to the essence and I'm gonna be doing more of that stuff but also, on The Last Train to Paris, I'm evolving. It's time to take some risks, it's time for me to make some true soul music, a lot of records out right now don't mean anything, they don't have no depth and instead of me complaining about it, I wanted to do something to lead the way to show there's other creative things you could do." (Tim Westwood TV)
Last December, the mogul said he did not have a set date for the album.
Then there's his coming album, Last Train to Paris, which was supposed to come out in September but has been pushed back to 2010. "I don't know the exact month," Diddy said about the release date. "We're going to have it come out when it's ready. We're bringing everything together, editing it down. We did 60 songs. Also, we're figuring out what's missing."

One month from beginning a yearlong federal prison sentence, rapper T.I. was in court again Friday, but this time he wasn't in the hot seat.
The 28-year-old performer, whose real name is Clifford Harris, spoke to a group of high school students half of whom are serving juvenile sentences.

Texas Instruments Inc. never meant for Jack Kilby to invent the integrated circuit and change the world. All of Mr. Kilby's bosses were away on vacation that summer, so Mr. Kilby was free to pursue his own interests.Now, as the Dallas-based company celebrates the 50th anniversary of Mr. Kilby's fortuitous stretch of free time, it's launching a lab designed to systematically provide the sort of opportunity that Mr. Kilby got by accident.
The new Kilby Labs will allow dozens of TI's best engineers to mingle with colleagues from academia and focus – for two entire years – on their interests.
In some ways, the concept behind the new lab represents a return to a past when individual inventors could make blockbuster breakthroughs. In other respects, it illustrates how much things have changed since Mr. Kilby's day.
"We've spent a lot of time studying what conditions allowed people like Jack to make big breakthroughs, and we've tried to consciously reproduce them," said Gregg Lowe, a senior vice president at the company.
"What will emerge from the labs? We have no idea. Other companies aren't doing this. We're in uncharted waters here."
The superstar engineers who earn two-year stints at Kilby Labs will be very different from the Jack Kilby who went to work for TI in 1958.
He was no superstar. He was a guy who failed MIT's entrance exam, earned middling grades at the University of Illinois and, in 1947, began his engineering career at a Milwaukee-based company called Centralab because it was the only place that offered him a job.

A room waits for T.I. It isn't an Atlantic Records office or a line around a record store; this is a West Philadelphia community center gymnasium, filled with less than 100 children, between the ages of four and 12, with a few special exceptions.
There is no mention of T.I.'s mandatory community service, or voting or his upcoming Paper Trail album. As select kids are leading a makeshift pep-rally, spouting off the lyrics to songs like "Top Back," "What You Know" and "Big Things Poppin'," a fleet of Secret Service-like black Ford Excursions pulls out front. Clifford Harris, a father of five, will meet the audience that isn't critical in the market-place now, but may prove to be in the next decade, should the King of the South continue to deliver the goods.
Sporting a Respect My Vote campaign t-shirt, sweatpants and a few select platinum and diamond jewelry pieces a drippin', T.I. enters the gym to a crowd that immediately recognizes his face. High-pitch cheers erupt, and the A-Town superstar takes a cordless microphone and walks over to the seated audience. In a succint seven-minute speech, T.I. stresses the value of education in contrast to the ephemera of material objects. He urges hard work, proclaiming, "You only get out of life what you're willing to put into it." Lastly, the platinum rapper reminds these '00 babies that school conditions people for life, and you're going to have to sacrifice to get where you aspire to be.
Whether or not the message sinks, all eyes on the room are on T.I.P. and all side conversations can wait. The superstar takes questions, written the day before by his audience members, and speaks on his career, personal life and past. Perhaps simple, the questions, and the personalized responses to the youth, portray T.I. in a light different than many of the headlines towards the end of 2007. Regardless of whether he was doing it for community service or simply doing it for community, T.I. gave 100 kids and a handful of press something unforgettable, amidst a revealing look at what tomorrow's consumers want to know about their celebrities.

Sometimes, the easiest way to resolve a conflict is to forget about its non-importance in the first place. With that said, T.I. sat down with MTV’s Sway to talk about the so-called conflict between him and Shawty Lo.
When asked if he would have done something similar to gain attention in the rap game, T.I. discouraged it and said,

Another one bites the dust. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) arrested T.I. in Hot-Lanta (Atlanta) on multiple weapon charges. They say that T.I. (allegedly) had his bodyguard buy machine guns and silencers for him.
What's wrong with that?
