This morning, T.I. let Sway premiere this bonus track off the upcoming album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, dropping tomorrow. It has heavy-hitting feature verses from B.o.B & Kendrick Lamar... and this story I can tell from the Trouble Man listening party last week in Chicago... (stay tuned for our interview later today!)
This was the last track that T.I. played for us. He prefaced it by saying that it samples a song we'll all know, but the sample couldn't get clear for the album. He then added he has plans to re-work it to go around that sample with B.o.B & Kendrick Lamar for a single and that a version would be available on the iTunes version of the album.
The song that he played was different than the version above and sampled the iconic chorus (and more of the production) of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" - a perfect fit for the track as all the emcees reflect on an early girlfriend from their upbringing (somebody that they used to know...). Let me tell ya, the way everything came together for this version was an instant hit with the whole room. And flat out, better than this re-worked version released above.
