Hip-Hop Rumors: What Will T.I. Do Now That He’s An Independent?

People saying T.I. fell off? I beg to differ! If you didn’t know, T.I. fulfilled his obligation to Atlantic Records with Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head. He’s officially and indie rapper. Here is the report from MTV:

“I got a record out now, me and Wayne,’ Wit Me,’ doing numbers every week, increasing on iTunes, increasing on Billboard top 100, so … I’m just continuing to push. Right now I’m an independent artist. It’s a lot of work, man, it’s a lot of resources to be dedicated to it,” T.I. said of being back in control of his destiny. “But at the end of the day I think it’s worth it. It put me back into mind of where we were after ‘I’m Serious,’ where we had to put our own funds and resources into [2003’s] Trap Muzik … I think that led to a beautiful situation … and I think right now we’re just working to reach another beautiful situation.”


Well, basically that means he’s probably looking for a big pay day with another label. And while Trouble Man wasn’t his biggest seller, it was a good album that showcased Tip’s talents. I’m thinking he’s going to get a new bit label based on his name alone. But, he’s also got some acting chops too. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
