So what happens when T.I., Kanye West, Jay-Z and Lil’ Wayne record a song together and it leaks on a Friday evening? The DJBooth inbox grows to the size of the Bible by Monday morning. Set to be featured on T.I.’s forthcoming Paper Trail (and also tentatively on Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3), S.L.U. – otherwise known as Swagger Like Us – is produced by West and samples international sensation M.I.A’s hit record, Paper Planes. Although a disappointed T.I. admitted to MTV News that he had hoped the record would stay quiet until closer to his September 30 release date, he is confident that the additional star power he has on board for the album will help make the project a true “event.” T.I.’s current single, Whatever You Like, is currently #1 on our Top Picks chart.
