T.I speaks in the interview with Billbaord on the ‘$200 Million’ Major Label Deal & ‘G.D.O.D.’ Mixtape.See below a cut off the interview
Your 10-year deal with Atlantic expired, and recent reports said you were looking for a massive new deal. What’s your label situation now?
Let it be known: I am a free agent. I’m operating as an independent label. I do not have corporate sponsors. I don’t have no corporate backing. I don’t have no major distribution. We Master-P-ing this shit right now. Everything we putting out we paying for it. It’s the grind. It’s put me back to where I was when my first record [2001's "I'm Serious"] didn’t sell, when I got dropped [from Arista] and I had to prove that I was worthy of a record deal. That’s what I’m doing right now. Back then I was proving I was worth $2 million. Right now, I’m proving I’m worth $200 million. I done sat with all the people; everybody says they’re interested, but they don’t want to cut that check. Alright — we’re going to motivate them to cut that check. We’re gong to incentivize each and every institution, each and every place of distribution, we going to motivate them. They going to cut that check, man, and it’s going to be eight figures. I ain’t doing no deal if it ain’t eight figures. I don’t even wanna sit down with you. I don’t wanna waste your time nor mine. I can do this shit on my own. $5 million, $2 million, $4 million, $3 million — I can do that shit on my own. I got that in the pipeline already. Don’t even talk to me if it ain’t eight figures. If y’all don’t feel like I’m worth it, I’ma show you.
