Today has been quite the day for T.I. fans!
Not only did his new album No Mercy hit stores today, but he wrote a letter to fans to coincide with the release.
Here's what he had to say in the letter:
"So here it is…NO MERCY, the most honest and intimate installment of my life story as promised.
Hope y'all enjoy it and it lives up to the very high standards I've set for myself or anyone who's to be considered one of the best. I must admit it takes a lot to go through as much as I have and still keep the love in your heart and in your art. But at the end of the day, if that's what it takes to produce the music that keeps the world of hip-hop evolving on it's axis….Then even the lowest of the lows of my life was all worth it. Thanks again for your prayers, your time and attention. And remember….It doesn't matter how long it'll be before the next time you see me. What matters is that I'll be a better man before that time comes. The longer I sit, the smarter I get."
We're glad to hear you're taking a cue from Lil Wayne and staying positive, T.I.
Keep it up!

Ooh! We like the sound of this!
Producer Alex Da Kid, who has worked on B.o.B and Hayley Williams' Airplanes and Eminem and Rihanna's Love the Way You Lie, recently revealed that he has another star-studded collaboration in the mix between T.I. and Christina Aguilera called Castle Walls, which will be featured on the rapper's new album, No Mercy!
"It's going to be T.I.'s next single. I love it. I think it's amazing. It's my sound, just kind of an evolution of that. I think it'll cater to a lot of different people."
Given his track record, we think that this DEFINITELY won't disappoint!
And we're curious to see how Xtina fares as a featured performer! Gurlfriend KILLED IT on Lady Marmalade, so hopefully this will live up to that!

A pesky little prison sentence isn't going to stop T.I. from releasing new tune-age!
The rapper is back behind bars for violating his probation, but his new album, No Mercy, is still set to hit the shelves December 7th!
Check out the music video for the lead single featuring Chris Brown, Get Back Up, (above)!
Hopefully the record will still do all right without him around to promote it!
Oh, well! Actions have consequences!
