Travie McCoy is probably best known as being the front man for rap rock group Gym Class Heroes (and being a Katy Perry ex-flame). But he has now decided to branch out on the solo tip.

Having relocated to Miami, Fl after recovering from his addiction to pain killers, Travie has started working on his solo project from a completely different aspect. He had initially wanted it to be an acoustic album discussing his drug addiction and break-up with Perry, but scrapped all the original material citing it as being too personal for his first solo effort. He also has stated that Gym Class Heroes aren't breaking up, but that all the members have had other music ventures they wanted to branch out into.

Whatever the case maybe, his first effort is sure to be hit.
