T.I. At A King of Oneself Brunch

Hip-Hop Rumors: Is There A Bidding War For T.I.?

As you already know, T.I. is no longer on Atlantic Records. The ATL don left the label earlier this year and is now a free agent. I am hearing that the acclaim associated with his last album Troubleman has gone a long way in the industry. I heard there are a couple major labels vying for Tip’s attention. His last album went gold so he’s still a player in the game. I also heard that Atlantic did shove a lot of money in the promotion of it, so the financials may not have worked out on their end. Nevertheless, T.I. is going to be staring on “House of Lies” with Don Cheadle now. So he good.

  • Papi Peligro

    As great as he is. Nope. Rappers ain’t selling of the top 40 selling albums this year. No hiphop albums.

      • Papi Peligro

        Top 40 albums in 2013. Eminem ain’t TI. Eminem Album ain’t in the 40. Which should scare you more. If Eminem can’t crack what makes you think TI will

    Now with him on his own, when he signs with someone is he going to bring Grand Hustle with him or is it going to be like it has been with just TI coming out with albums and the rest of GH not really doing too much to make noise?

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      grand hustle not really that deep .. b.o.b is doing his thing and dro has been trying but outside of them 2 who esles is on Grand hustle thats ready to go ????

      • GMAD

        Trae & Killer Mike shows bring in some good heads and no doubt Tip has em signed to 360 deals (at least partially since they have other label deals). That brings some good money and don’t knock how much B.O.B. is worth. He could keep a single label alive between his tours and albums.

      • Matt Swan

        But I wonder when TI moves does GH move with him, or are they still a part of Atlantic? And with the indie power like Tech 9 has, why not go that route and keep the money to yourself rather than be in the constant circle of making what the company wants?

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        man they gonna drop GH and hes going to need to find a new home for that … B.O.B might break out or atlantic might make an offer to keep him .. but then again if Atlantic is taking on MMG … i dont see why they wont keep GH ……

      • Matt Swan

        I can dig that, but in MMG’s case, they are putting out music, Ross has seen to that, unlike GH where BoB is making some noise and has crossover appeal, but outside of that, I haven’t heard a word from GH. If I’m wrong correct me.

      • Myleage

        um 8ball and mjg, young booke, doe B, killer mike, trae the truth, p$c. theres a lot. listen to the G.D.O.D. mixtape

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        man out of those dudes you name i’ll give you Killer mike and that its ….!!!! i like trae the truth but im not anticipating any cyphers from that dude ….. good music … but a cypher ?????? u dont know mane …….. all them other dudes you talking about must be local cause i aint hear d of none of them … not saying they suck but they like b.o.b before he bleew ….they gotta get they weight up …. but def Killer Mike tho didnt know he was on GH …..?????

      • Myleage

        yeah killer mike signed to them in 2008 after he left big boi but i know u heard of 8ball and MJG they are legends in the south with UGK. and he got Problem that is an upcoming artist from cali. Problem to me sounds a little like Schoolboy Q but not quite as dope. Doe b is from alabama I think his baby jesus mixtape is alright. p$c is T.I.’s group he had since he came out and he got Young Dro. young booke, shad, and spoode are local atlanta rappers. Chip is from England and Iggy Azealia is from london. as far as good rappers go GH got the squad

  • Reblogged this on $20 RECORDING STUDIO.

  • Happy1

    Who cares about T.I? Next story please! Weak Pop Music!!!

    • Live Well

      What T.I. you been listening to?

      • coach jenkins

        word ikr. he must be confused and think T.I is short Timberlake.

    • Kyle Meta4ce

      Loosen those backpack straps up, nigga, it’s 2013.

    • with a name like happy, you probably listen to pop music.

  • BibatheDiva

    Troubleman had some real joints on it. Should have done better. T.I. is an amazing person, and businessman, he isn’t going to let any company that goes into business with him get off cheap. They better be prepared to invest. That said, I would really like to see him at Def Jam tho.

  • atlantahiphopshop

    When he was in jail it was” I want to work with ALL INDIES and Underground”, Then when he got out, NOTHING but white hoes and corporate b.s.

    • ThatBostonMan

      You make a good point but Iggy wasn’t exactly mainstream at the time. He did release some mixtape but I can agree he probably could stand to stay independent for a while. All this rush to go to a corporate label when you don’t have to? He can do what he wants at this point so they need him more than he needs them.

    • Myleage

      trae, doe b, young booke, killer mike, etc. are really underground. he got chip who is underground in america so he has been with indies

  • Golgo 13

    wouldn’t b surprised if he signs 2 cash money 2

    • Matt Swan

      Now THAT would be some sh*t!!

  • dehova

    Diddy could do with him

  • EL_DON

    Roc Nation, G.O.O.D music are his best options in my opinion. Maybe even Dre since Detox ain’t never coming.

    • ThatBostonMan

      He should start his own label. He has enough fans and business savy to run his own shit so why not?

      He’ll go gold even as an independent if he wanted to. I do think he would work well with Roc Nation though.

      • beavis

        how bout murder inc

      • Myleage

        he got his own label with killer mike, b.o.b., dro, p$c, trae tha truth, etc. called Grand Hustle. but if he gets on cashmoney its crazy. good music would be absolutely crazy for hip hop

  • David Gonz


    • get higher, your broke

    • Live Well

      Who retires after going gold on a rap album?

  • TheAfroRican

    T.I. should just sign himself to his own label and go independent, find a distributor like RED, Asylum, or Fontana for his label. Cut out the middleman.

  • Truth Powell

    No one cares about him dropping an album on a major lavel with his fake porcelain veneer teeth ass.
    He has skills as a rapper but any label shelling out big bucks to sign him will be wasting their money. Dude is all hype.

    • therealjjohnson

      2 questions…

      Why does his teeth bother you so much?

      If you acknowledge he has skills as a rapper how can you then turn around and say he is “all hype”?

      • David Gonz

        you can be a good rapper and still suck with making studio hits. aka all hype. example: jay whacklectronica

      • Truth Powell

        Cuz that fake teeth shit looks funny. It’s like fat people that get gastric bypass then look worse afterwards.
        And word to David Gonz he understood the hype aspect.

  • dee

    i know one thing he not worth 80 mill he was talking

  • DollasTX

    stay INDIE … you already picked enough cotton for them MAJORS

  • Jame Shivar

    Interscope….. Truth Powell why you all in this man mouth?
