Some music business news and speculation surrounding the Trouble Man, T.I.. He is now a free agent after his 10 year deal with Atlantic has expired with the release of a new album. The King of the South plans to celebrate this freedom by taking meetings with the likes of Dr. Dre (Instagrammed recently above with T.I. & Grand Hustle's Trae Tha Truth) and apparently Jay-Z, who's interested in Tip for Roc Nation.
According to TMZ, T.I. is seeking a $75 million dollar deal with the following highlights. (Mind you, this sentence began with "According to TMZ")
- 3 albums
- 10-20 percent of publishing, touring, merchandise, film and TV rights
- Corporate endorsement deals
- Exclusive signing of all Grand Hustle artists
TMZ's sources continue to say that, in addition to Jay-Z's interest, Sony has offered $50 million with a meeting with Universal still to come.
What do you think of this report? And more importantly, do you also wish T.I. makes his decision LeBron style, complete with the purple tablecloth button down?
