T.I., Diddy-Dirty Money, Young Jeezy releases shelved

Three hotly anticipated hip-hop releases have been shelved—at least temporarily—by their respective record labels.

King Uncaged, deemed rapper T.I.’s comeback album after his release from prison earlier this year, has been put on hold and will not be released on September 28th as previously announced. According to the Rap-Up website, T.I. will be spending some time promoting his new film Takers before heading back into the studio to record some new material for his oft-delayed release1. No future release date has been set at this time.

In addition, another hip-hop-star-turned-actor has had trouble meeting scheduled release dates. Diddy’s project, Diddy-Dirty Money, originally announced their debut album, Last Train to Paris, back in May. Several months and multiple street date changes (the most recent being September 21st) later, there is still no official date set for the album’s release. Diddy, however, was recently quoted in a Wall Street Journal blog, saying that the album would be out in December “God willing”2.

Also, we have received word from Universal Music that Young Jeezy’s forthcoming release, TM 103, has been delayed indefinitely. Originally slated for a September 28th release, Jeezy recently told Billboard that the album would be his “best” album yet3.

As a result of these changes, Midwest Tape will cancel all orders for King Uncaged, Last Train to Paris, and TM 103. Be sure to check back at for updated release information on these three titles if and when it becomes available.
