T.I. Signs A Deal With Jay Z’s Roc Nation!

The Grammy Award-winning rapper and actor had signed a deal with Jay Zโ€˜s label to distribute his forthcoming studio album, The Dime Trap, which will be officially released by Tipโ€™s Grand Hustle Records. He joins the likes ofย Kanye West,Madonna, Rihanna andย Beyonce.


T.I. was one of the most successful rappers of the 2000โ€™s, dropping five consecutive platinum albums from 2003 to 2008, and racking up 3 Grammy victories in the process. However, intermittent legal issues and two significant stints in prison stunted Tipโ€™s trajectory, and since 2008โ€™s Paper Trail his sales have faltered, and heโ€™s failed to recapture theย top spot on the Billboard 200.

T.I signing with Roc Nation means Bigger things for him as an artist, Roc Nation is co owned by Jay Z who is not really the label power man but an executive and Live Nation which is a public entity that controls music earnings through a Spider Web arrangement. Hopefully his connection with longtime collaborator Jay Z will help rejuvenate the โ€œAbout the Moneyโ€ rapper, who is certainly still capable of performing at a high level.
