Finally able to lift his heavy head, T.I. recently made headlines when he announced he wanted a $75 million deal. Back in 2003, T.I. pulled off his comeback and ended up getting a deal with Atlantic Records that included his Grand Hustle Records imprint. Opening doors for the likes of B.o.B. and Young Dro, T.I. has battled various legal situations.
Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head marked nine years for T.I. at Atlantic Records and his seventh album with the powerhouse. Obviously, T.I. has come a long way since he first signed with the label in 2003. Back in 2008, Atlantic Records wanted to name T.I. as the president of the company, but his legal issues ended his bid.
Recently, T.I. opened up on the rumors of him searching out a $75 million record deal. While rumors point to T.I. being done with Atlantic Records, he revealed that he shares a strong relationship with his partners. But, T.I. said he would like to stay at Atlantic Records, but he is looking for a three album deal and rights to all of his work and the entire Grand Hustle roster.
If T.I. cannot work out a new deal with Atlantic Records, he is looking forward to his deal with his next partners.
