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."
