Rappers T.I. and Young Jeezy are teaming up to record a collaborative album.

The hip-hop stars have previously worked together on songs like F.A.M.E. and Addicted, and although plans for a joint project have long been discussed, they have only recently been able to turn the dream into a reality.

T.I. tells MTV.com, "We've been talking about it for years, but we finally putting the execution part of it in the works.

"Usually, when we talking about it, either he's working on finishing his album or I'm working on finishing mine. This is like one of the first times that we both putting our albums out around the same time. I'm done with my process, he's done with his process, now we can collectively come together and do something together (sic)."

And the Live Your Life hitmaker reveals they have already completed a string of tracks.

He adds, "We already have probably about six, seven records. It don't take us long to put it together. It's just a matter of actually finding the time to promote it, market it, and actually get it done."
