Bad Timing Alert: New T.I. Album With Rapper Wielding a Gun Released in Wake of Sandy Hook School Shooting

T.I., TROUBLE MAN: HEAVY IS THE HEAD Grand Hustle/Atlantic

It certainly wasn't intentional, but the release of T.I.'s new album definitely comes at a sensitive time.

Or, more specifically, the album's cover art, which features the rapper holding up a gun.

The disc, Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, dropped today as the nation continues to mourn the horrific tragedy that took place last week in Newtown, Conn.

The collection of songs, which features appearances by the likes of Lil Wayne, CeeLo Green, R. Kelly and Pink, is the eighth studio album for T.I.

No word yet if there had been any discussion about possibly postponing the release date in light of the events at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Of course, time will tell what, if any, impact the cover might have on sales.
