Most rappers don’t even make it to their third album, yet T.I. (Clifford Harris to his mom), is getting set to release his eighth entitled Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head tomorrow.

To help T.I. kick off the album right, we streamed the full 30-minute set featuring new tracks “Ball” and “Trap Back Jumpin’,” (the latter produced by “Crate Diggers” alum DJ Toomp) and classics including “Whatever You Like” and “What You Know.”

The tiny audience for Fuse Live: T.I. was more intimate than the typical thousands that see the rapper on tour each night. TIP and his crew still brought an energy level more reserved for late-night clubs than a television studio, though, waving with the crowd on “Hello” and getting rambunctious on “What You Know.”

Make sure you cop Trouble Man in stores Tuesday, Dec. 18. Beside's T.I.'s kaaang flow, the rapper enlisted Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Andre 3000, Pink, R. Kelly, Cee Lo and Akon.
