Is T.I. Worth $75 Million?
T.I. released his eighth album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, via Atlantic Records in December. Now, though, according to TMZ, the Atlanta rapper is looking for a new home—and wants $75 million from whatever that home may be. The site is reporting that his 10-year contract with Atlantic recently expired, and here's what he wants to be part of the contract from his next label home: 3 albums; 10-20% of publishing, touring, merchandise, film and TV rights; corporate endorsement deals; and exclusive signing of all Grand Hustle artists.
Reportedly, Sony has offered $50 million. Meanwhile, he's met with Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, and has a sit-down with Universal scheduled.
