T.I. Says Jay-Z Was Supposed To Be Featured On

T.I. reveals that Jay-Z was initially expected to appear on the final tracklist for "Trouble Man."

After months of delays, T.I.'s highly anticipated album Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head has finally hit record stores. Now, in a recent interview with XXL, the King of the South discusses the one collaboration that never made the final cut of his eighth solo album.

According to Tip, Jay-Z was expected to be featured on one of the songs featured on Trouble Man titled "G Season." Although Jay was unable to jump on the Cardiak-produced track, T.I. was ultimately able to secure a verse from MMG newcomer Meek Mill.

"I asked Jay to get on ['G Season']," he said. "I sent word to Jay-Z, I asked him to get on it. I know he had a lot of shit going on, so he never got around to it. I finally ran into Meek in the club—we was at, when Kanye did that thing at the post office about five, six weeks ago. We was there together and I was like, Hey, man, I got something I want you to do. We left there, got something to eat, then we went to Just Blaze’s studio in Harlem and laid the shit down right there."

Check out the full interview below.

    Jay-Z ruins every single song he is on. His verses on Clique and Talk that Talk were straight up embarassing. Lil B could have spit a better 16. People need to realize what Jay-Z is; an over-reated fraud who is involved in a relationship with former Chiefs runnings back Larry Johnson. Jay-Z is not a legened in the rap game. He's just a nice, clean-cut business man who has never committed a crime in his life.

      YES, THANKS FOR PROVIDING AN EXAMPLE OF WHY A FEATURE FROM JAY-Z THESE DAYS IS WORTHLESS.
