Wish You Would

Album: Theater of the Mind (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This song features T.I., which at the time was a surprise because of the ongoing rivalry between the two camps. T.I. explained the reasons for their collaboration on DJ Self's Sirius Satellite Radio show. Said the "King of the South": "Me and dude never had no problems. It was always turmoil between our camp and his camp. Us as the bosses of our companies, everyone is gonna follow our lead. We'd figure if it ain't no problem and we don't have no issues, no beef, then there's no reason we shouldn't be able to get together and make music. That was an executive decision that was made on both our behalves."
