Atlanta rapper T.I. is wanting to bridge the gap between artist and the industry, and Tip recently spoke on his interest in possibly signing Troy Ave to his Grand Hustle imprint and why it would make sense for him to do so.
According to T.I. , signing Troy Ave to Grand Hustle is very possible.
“I can say that it is a possibility,” T.I. says in an interview with MTV. “In the near future there could be some announcements made. In the near future there could be, among others.” (HipHopDX)
Tip says it would be a good move to go after Ave because he feels he can communicate with him and the music would be incredible.
“I’m sure the music would be phenomenal,” he says. “But I think above all I want to work with people that the industry would otherwise have a hard time working with. I want to work with the people that the industry may not know how to communicate with or might not know how to perceive.” (HipHopDX)
