T.I.’s recently released album Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head may be the last he releases through Atlantic Records. TMZ reports that TIP’s ten-year deal with Atlantic ended last month, and that he’s already shopping around for a new one.
TIP’s proposal is centered around three albums, corporate endorsement deals and the exclusive signing of all Grand Hustle artists. The price tag? A whopping $75 million.

In the running are Dr. Dre and Interscope, as well as Universal. Jay-Z is attempting to recruit him for Roc Nation and Sony reportedly has a deal on the table already for $50 million. T.I. seems pretty serious about his offer from Interscope — he was spotted at West Hollywood sushi haven Katana with Dr. Dre, potentially discussing business– but is also set to meet with Universal this week.
Ah, to be a free agent.
