T.I. Partners With Columbia Records + Pharrell To Executive Produce New Album

(AllHipHop News) T.I. has been reportedly steadfastly firm in his belief that he is worth a $75 million record deal and even told Billboard in early May that he was worth $200 million. Today (November 22nd), Columbia Records has answered the call as the major label conglomerate partnered with T.I. and his Grand Hustle imprint.

In the official statement announcing the partnership, T.I. showed his gratitude for the Columbia staff and hinted at an upcoming album produced by a certain legendary hitmaker:

I’m honored to be partners with such a successful, passionate and creative conglomerate like Columbia Records, who respects and supports the vision of their artist and partners. Nothing but love, respect & appreciation for Doug Morris, Rob Stringer and the entire staff. Also, a special thank you to my big bruh, Sk8board P, for always believing in me and also executive producing my upcoming project.

Pharrell produced the Cee-Lo Green featured song “Hello” off of T.I.’s last album 2012’s Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. T.I.’s upcoming album is tentatively titled Trouble Man: He Who Wears The Crown.

    • fuckwititb!tch

      and your profile pic says it all about you…a pumpkin tho??….halloween was a month ago…update it to santa dumbass….this is a good move for his career…regardless of what you think…he stead fast and held his ground and got what he want and how he wanted it….only true BOSSES have the strength to do so…but you wouldnt kno sh!t about that….lol

    • BIGB

      And how do you know this photo is not an old stock photo this website is using from way back?

      Interested to see the details of the deal tho…if he got the 75 mil. or how close Columbia came to it, must have been vary close, if not on the dot exactly, cuz TI signed with them, so..Movies…TV…clothing line…music…website platform…artist mangmnt… money coming from every damn where.

    I don’t understand what’s the point. What is TI going to talk about?!?

    We know your rich, and can hit his hoe her hoe etc, & still can go back to the trap. That last Album was trash minus Sorry. Let trap ninjas rap about the trap so they can get out. Being “worth” 200 mil, nothing should be said about trapping b/c it sounds stupass.

    IDK why I be feeling like when dudes get out of jail they going to come out and revolutionize against the machine or some ish.

      I can smell hate coming through your pours. And you would be the main MF buying his album when it drops early next yr….lol

    • fuckwititb!tch

      I can smell the hate coming through your pores……T.I. was the start of “trap muzik” so he can rap about it as much as he pleases….especially if he pioneered it….his last album was about events that he didnt touch on much in the past through his music….so it made sense….and his being “worth” 200 mill….ok he may have went up too high for that but lets be honest…name another rapper that does acting right now NONE!!!!….besides 50 cent (which he is kinda irrelevant right now)???….make all the difference in the world when you have a clothing line, you act, a musician etc. you and can ask for alot more….he stood fast in his deal of 75mill deal and it appears he got exactly what he wants…..lol

        Nope no hate over here slim. True, TI was the start of the “Trap Musik” trust me I was right there early 2000’s listening to it. But its 10 years later and you STILL TRAPPING!!! TI said himself rap was boring, but now its all this excitement on getting a new deal?!?!

        I’m not knocking son for getting his money (acting, had his fam on tv getting tv money) but my initial question was what is he gonna RAP about? Guns, Dope, Hoes, as a 200 million dollar man, that’s corny as hell and you know it. U mentioned 50 Cent being irrelevant, rapping YES, why the hell you think he aint rapping lol. Putting the streets on wax is what made them rich, rapping about that ish now as multimillionaires is corny as hell.

        “but now its all this excitement on getting a new deal?!?!”

        — all this excitement on getting a new check. Is clearly what he’s so giddy about. More 0’s in his bank account.. The rest of the debate, that’s on you two. Just wanted to throw that in. Lol

    75 mil to keep young blacks living in a fantasy world thinking that you and or they will sell enormous amounts of crack (an 80’s drug) and magically move from poverty to riches while in reality they will die or go to prison… not to mention dude talks about & lives a swingin and possibly DL life style but thats kinda ok too bc vag on vag and men enjoying the pleasure of a penis in the part of the body the dispels human waste..well thats cool now and holds the same weight as slavery, civil rights and womens lib…TI …Jay Z Jeezy and others have a job to do and thats to keep us ignorant, incarcerated …influence our buying power to line the pockets of the wealthy while further plunging their own ppl into despair…low key genocide basically but yall dont care and im a hater …with NIGGAS who needs the klan we’ll destroy ourselves and fight for the right to do it…

    its a 360 deal film,tv,touring,merchindise, albums,endorsements

  • Tell-it-like-it-is

    they make it look like T.I got the 75 mill he was asking for, but he said that in may and not one record label really took him up on his offer and actually was pretty quiet for a while not even rumors swirling about interested labels. I think they made a good offer and he accepted but not what he probably originally wanted. With the decrease in music sales i doubt they are going to throw cash around like that.
