Listen to T.I.'s Unreleased Version of Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love"

Posted By on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 at 3:42 PM

The dudes at Dajaz1 just got a hold of this scrapped song, "Down Like That", from T.I.'s most recent record, 2008's Paper Trail. It's a little rough, but very listenable and enjoyable, with and Fergie on the chorus. Listen below, or click here to download.

The beat is very clearly not the work of the Black Eyed Peas' beatsmith, and features a jaunty sample from Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love"—embedded after the jump for your nostalgic listening pleasure, along with a couple other famous rapper's versions. Meanwhile, T.I.'s comeback record, King Uncaged, is currently slated for an August 24 release date, which means it might see the light of day before 2011. (NahRight)
