T.I.’s Grand Hustle to Produce First Film

TI.jpgT.I. and partner Jason Geter have successfully pitched what will be the first film from their Grand Hustle Entertainment venture to New Line Cinema, according to a Variety report. The project, tentatively titled For Sale, will revolve around an Atlanta used car dealership where T.I. works as a salesman. Toby Emmerich, head of production for New Line, is reported to have immediately picked up the film after hearing the pitch. The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, made his acting debut in last year’s ATL which opened at number three in its first week. Grand Hustle, which Harris and Geter founded in 2001, also released the soundtrack for John Singelton’s acclaimed film Hustle and Flow.

  • MoneyMakin’Mitch

    That’s what’s up on the film deal, but “down south Hov”?! He could never b that ’cause he ran from beef wit’ Luda and Rick Ross, but he made a whole Gangsta Grillz about Flip non-rappin’ ass. Hov a static addict, he don’t run from it or “sit down and talk”, he handle his B I, then he can make some money off of u he sign u(sorry Nas, but it’s the truth). T I the most overrated rapper out. When Andre start rhymin’ full time again y’all gon’ c who the real King of the South is. When him r Wayne gon’ reply 2r Pusha T anyway? Gillie givin’ ya’ boy Wayne a problem too…

  • Peachy

    “He could never b that ’cause he ran from beef wit’ Luda”

    So Luda denied about dissing T.I.P and said he was dissing himself..so what your point?

    Ran from Rick Ross? You think T.I. gone sit here and diss some nobody? Plus I dont think T.I. knew about that diss anyways, that old ass shit.

    I really wish that people will stop calling him the down south hova cause he not.Rocafella had potenial artist that can sell records grand hustle does not yound dro cd his not gonna be that hot i heard gang.sta grillz and no. hip hop is in a bad state right now because not any of these new artist can head line a concert and iam not talking about a club concert iam talking about at a actually stadium a real on that something hova can do even ludacris tip can not do that because he really not the king hit 3 to 5 million records before you start yelling the king have a real concert. and atl was just garbage for real and aint nobody hating just didnt like. Ti sat and said in 5 years he wants to be worth 100 million only in five years. your some what a national artist and that all you want to be worth. master p made that in one year thank big not small.

    I am not hating, but purely hip-hop speaking I believe TIP used the whole King of the South moniker to bring hype to hisself. No doubt the guy can rap, and arguably is one of the best shit talkers in the industry right now (sorry TIP, but most of your record only touches the surface of the deeper individual you have yet to show the world musically, I believe), but historically speaking, and I know some of you are much to young too appreciate this statement (although i know in some place TIP would agree, and as a matter of fact when I met him said this to him, his only reply was “did he say he was?”)but the King of the South as far as rapping has to go to ANDRE 3000…If you have witnessedn this guy’s transformation from the original OUTKAST of Southerplayalistic…to ATLIENS…to AQUEMINI (arguably the greatest rap album ever,period) to Stankonia to The LOVE BELOW…to the present…this guy does not stop evolving in much the same way the BEATLES or classic groups such as PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC, SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE, and even the TEMPTATIONS. Sorry, if i have offended anyone TIP is a great businessman and I have not seen the ATL movie but most accounts I have from it is that it is not that great, more like a roller skating movie with a few morals threw in. I guess one of the major reasons I feel as well as a great deal of others feel ANDRE is KING OF THE SOUTH is because he has TENURE, PROGRESSION, AND THOUGHT IN ALMOST IF NOT EVERY RHYME. It appears to me that TIP is not so much a KING because he is allowing what yall feel is good music to determine what he will put out instead of allowing the music inside him to paint the portrait in his headphones. Surely, someone who has traveled as extensively as this guy and seen so many things whether they be good or bad has more to offer to his generation of fans than banter concerning his youthful drug exploits on almost every song of his fourth album?

    I AM NOT TRYING TO KNOCK TIP BECAUSE I KNOW YALL GONNA THINK THAT, JUST WANT TO PUT THIS UP FOR DISCUSSION AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK.

    At the time ANDRE DID NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT BEING THE king of the south but since it has become such a topic of discussion he has made a remark about it in the IDLEWILD MEDLY which can be found on
    myspace.
