Report: T.I. Shopping for $75 Million Record Deal

T.I.

Now that his 10-year contract with Atlantic Records is up, T.I. is looking for a new place to call home. The King of the South has reportedly been shopping for a super-sized deal worth $75 million.

Sources tell TMZ that Tip is seeking a lucrative deal that includes three albums, 10-20 percent of publishing, touring, merchandise, film, and TV rights, endorsements, and exclusive signing of all his Grand Hustle artists.

He’s already met with some big names including Dr. Dre, who asked him to join Interscope, and Jay-Z, who has expressed interest in bringing T.I. into the Roc Nation family.

According to TMZ, Sony has already put a $50 million offer on the table and Universal is expected to make their bid soon.

Of course, there is also the possibility that he will renew his deal with Atlantic, who released his eighth album Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head in December. It debuted at No. 2 with 179,000 copies.

    @N4Vi, Funny how 90% of the comment on this blog says that he isn’t worth it or aint nobody gonna give it to him ..
    But why is Roc Nation & Interscope has express interest in him, or why has Sony offer $50 already …
    I know why CAUSE he is a legend and he is know all of the world && he is worth even more than $5o …

    lol a waste of money. T.I. so wack and all his artists are wack, sorry just keeping it funky. Delusional people who still believe in this guy live in the south. Thats all I hear down here, smdh. They believe in him and their beloved Falcons. OMG. I think they have a problem realizing the truth or living in reality. But they are from the south so what else can you expect. #nuffsaid

    @niugohard, I’m from NJ, and I still love T.I.’s music to this day, ever since ’05 actually. T.I., Luda, Jeezy, and Andre 3000 are the ONLY things going for the south today. That’s right, I said it. Not Ross, not Wayne, not Waka, not Future, not 2 Chainz, you get my point. Only 4 dudes from the south I can actually tolerate. IMO, T.I. deserves a decent deal, especially after Trouble Man, but not a $75 million deal. Perhaps $50-$60 million max.

    No disrespect but T.I. Isn’t really worry that much. Although I love trouble man, his last few albums didn’t sell well. I think he’s reaching awfully high. But if he can pull it off I say get that guap.

    Good luck with that TI. I dont think anyone will give him that unless they have own rights to every single thing like a 360 deal. His days of selling millions is pretty much done.

    75 million dollars is chump change! This is money for over a course of some years to not only promote him, but also artist that he has under him.

    The size of a record deal is always inflated.

    In 1990 MJ got a “Billion Dollar” record deal. Not exactly. That is how much it could have returned to Sony.
    He did get a $60m advance though.
