Knowing the difference between mixing business and personal relationships is important in the music industry, and for TI, sacrificing connectivity is not worth the risk.

What’s more, he says he turned down the chance to sign two of the hottest emcees of the current generation because he knew it would cost far more than money.

The offer

According to the “Paper Trail” rapper, the artists being talked about are Young Thug and 21 Savage, fellow Atlantans looking to sign to his Grand Hustle label.

“At this point in my career, I feel honored to tell new artists when they come to me, you know, 21 Savage, [Young] Thug, a lot of them come up to me, “Man, give me a million, Tip. I don’t care what you do, just give me a million and let me take it from there,” explained T.I. during an appearance on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast.

Why did He refuse?

TI also said he failed to honor the deal on the table.

“No way, I won’t because if I give you a million, I’ll have to take back something worth more and we can’t be friends from there,” he explained. . “I always tell them, man, ‘don’t worry about the money, because it will come.’

It always works out in the end

It all worked out in the end, as TI explains that when he runs to both 21 Savage and Young Thug, the hype remains the same.

“I remember saying that to Slime, I remember saying that on the 21st… every time he sees me, he’s going to hit me and say, ‘Hey! “Yes, it has arrived,” said T.I. I just know how influential each generation has the potential to be more than the last.”
