Only just yesterday I was definitely grooving to T.I.’s latest single, “Whatever You Like,”
wherein he explains his pro-gold-digging policy of dating. Still, I don’t
think the rapper would be very happy with me if he knew exactly how I
got the song, or how I managed to dig up yet another new,
as-yet-officially-unreleased joint–“Swagger Like Us.”
(The cut features an extremely hot sample of M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes,”
plus some assistant vocal chops from Jay-Z and Lil’ Wayne.) But. I
certainly didn’t have to, like, pay for it. Hah! Imagine.

“That’s some bullsh–,” T.I. told MTV News
last weekend of the song’s premature leak. “I’m beating down the
Internet as we speak.” This explains the funny pain in my
knees…although it could be early-onset arthritis.

Oh, and T.I. is still upset. It’s not enough that we taste his pain, we should feel bad! And sorry!

“Don’t ruin the event,” he lamented. “Wait till the cake comes out the
kitchen before you eat it. That’s like a kid who sees his toys before
Christmas; it takes away from me and I think it takes away from the
fans as well. When it’s time, I’mma give it to you. They leaked my
record with me and The-Dream ["Like I Do"] too. Leakage is never a problem I have had. I’m not used to it.”

Meh! You may be new, but get used it it, bub. We Internet
people LIKE having all of our surprises ruined for us. It helps us plan
ahead And now, to hide in fear.
