T.I. Goes Independent


After 10 years on Atlantic Records T.I. decides to go the independent route...

Tip tells MTV
"Right now I'm an independent artist."
"It's a lot of work, man, it's a lot of resources to be dedicated to it. But at the end of the day I think it's worth it. It put me back into mind of where we were after 'I'm Serious,' where we had to put our own funds and resources into [2003's]Trap Muzik ... I think that led to a beautiful situation ... and I think right now we're just working to reach another beautiful situation."

I like his song featuring B.O.B. and Kendrick Lamar

I guess he's trying to get his street cred back? Or maybe he's tired of being raped by labels? Why would a successful artist leave a major label to become independent? He wants more control of his music, image and sound. I'm just throwing out some educated guesses here.

How was everybody's 4th of July? My husband and I spent it alone at the house with the dog and had a long overdue f*ck session. I'm curious to know from the married folks how much sex are y'all having? We've slowed down quite a bit but it sure as hell hasn't affected the quality.

Wow@10:41. But I do agree with you about T.I. I think he does want more control over his music.

This could be very good for him because he is not making any money at the record label. He might as well keep that change in his pocket instead of owing them and not having nothing at all. Tiny only wrote one grammy song they can't live off of that forever.

He looks like he has Bell's Palsy in that picture. O_o

Him having creative control over his music is one of the most obvious reasons for him going independent. I guess the deal he had going with roc nation fell through, or he turned down their offer. I remember seeing a story on another site about him having a lot of deals on the table from various labels.

I'm listening to Mos Def - Umi Says. If only artists could make music as beautiful as this again. I :Heart: this song!

What does a 40 year old millionaire actor have to rap about to the streets ??!! Too many old men in the rap game. That's why it sucks now.

Most entertainers are gay anyway.

@10:41 that sounds exactly like my 4th of July! im not married but I had a long overdue f**k session with a married man! It was cool, not great, just ok. I sent him back home to his unsuspecting, young, dumb ass wifey poo this morning.

Yall be great!

This is 5:52, Oh by the way, TI is wack as hell now. I saw his step- daughter at ALDO in Lenox Mall over the weekend, she's so pretty. I wonder who her dad is. She dont look shit like Tiny. But anyway, TI fell off years ago so his label is no longer backing him with millions of dollars cuz he not BRINGING IN that type of revenue. Those are the brakes ppl. The entertainment business is very fickle.

This happened because he's got his head so far up his bottom, thinking he better than what he actually is. Pretty soon Tiny will be the bread winner once again.
