T.I. knows his fans have been patiently waiting for his next move, so the rap star will release his upcoming album 'Paper Trail' on August 12, a month before its original due date.

"There was a great demand for the product," T.I. said in a recent interview. "Once we put out 'No Matter What,' we got so much positive response that we moved up the date." 'No Matter What,' produced by Danja, hit the internet last week, but T.I. has yet to drop an official first single. The rapper is leaning toward releasing 'Top of the World,' featuring Kanye West and B.O.B. "It's a reflective song about our humble beginnings and how far we've come," T.I. said.
