T.I. and DaBaby have yet to collide on a track, but that drought will be coming to an end when they team up for the Fear soundtrack.
In an afterparty following Fear’s premiere in West Hollywood, Tip and Baby revealed to TMZ Hip Hop that they have teamed up for the Fear soundtrack’s title track, which will accompany the film hitting theaters across the U.S. on Friday (January 27
The project will be executive produced by Sean Garrett and fans can expect guest appearances from E-40, Freddie Gibbs and more.
T.I. and DaBaby hit the stage at the We-Ho after party where the trap pioneer ran through a string of hits from this prolific discography including “24’s” and “Rubber Band Man.”
The “What You Know” rapper then showered Baby with praise and gave the Charlotte native the ultimate introduction before he grabbed the mic and performed tracks like “Suge.”
“One of the freshest of the next generation, one of the leaders of the muthafuckin’ new school, one of the coldest muthafuckas doing it right now, ya dig,” T.I. said. “Representing the south by way of Charlotte… Would y’all please do it for him like y’all did it for me?”
T.I. is set to star in Fear alongside Power‘s Joseph Sikora, Terrence J, King Bach, Ruby Modine, Iddo Goldberg, Annie Ilonzeh, Tyler Abron and Jessica Allain.
The Atlanta rapper continues to get called upon in the world of film following impressive turns in Marvel’s Ant-Man, Get Hard, Takers, Dolemite Is My Name and many more.
T.I. spent last week in the courtroom after the Hustle Gang boss and wife Tiny Harris filed a lawsuit against the toymaker alleging that their line of L.O.L. Surprise OMG dolls borrows heavily from the OMG Girlz, who were signed to Tiny‘s Pretty Hustle imprint until 2015.
T.I. and Tiny claim that MGA announced it was planning on launching a line of dolls modeled after the OMG Girlz in 2010 but failed to secure a licensing agreement and allegedly refused to discuss compensation.
