Firmly in control of his own career, T.I. changed his name back to TIP and he is continuing to be a force in music. The reason he went by T.I. was out of respect to Q-Tip, as the legend was his label-mate. While this may anger some, T.I. is a bigger commodity now.
With his own status close to legend, TIP made his return and went independent. Recently, TIP began pushing The Dime Trap, which is his latest album. The first single, “Money Talk,” has been out close to a week and he has now placed it on TIDAL.
TIP modeled his career after Jay Z’s, so it’s fitting for him to be the latest artist to join TIDAL. This should be another win for Jay Z’s service, as it has the Rihanna album, the Kanye West fashion show/album, and Beyonce’s “Formation” all bringing massive traffic. Now, T.I. announces his Atlanta pop-up concert with TIDAL, likely to bring more traffic.
