T.I. Reveals Troy Ave Signing Possibility

T.I. says he wants to be the bridge between artists and the industry.

T.I. recently addressed the possibility of Troy Ave signing to his Grand Hustle imprint.

"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."

The announcement could be made because T.I. says he feels their work together would be well received.

“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.

“I want to be able to translate for them to the industry and vice versa,” he continues. “Because if you are afraid of somebody that limits your ability to communicate, which limits your ability to monetize their possible opportunities.

"From the artist perspective, if people are afraid of you that limits the opportunities that you have, from people presenting things to you that can benefit your progression,” he adds. “So there must be a gap bridged, I see myself as the bridge… I ain’t have a bridge. I needed a bridge.”

    50 Cent's Animal Ambition 2nd Week Global Album Sales 50 Cent's fifth studio album, Animal Ambition sold 25,000 copies globally in it's second week in stores. The album is now at two week total sales of 90,000 worldwide. These numbers shouldn't be confused with the album's national sales; it is at a total sales of 63,000 copies in America alone. I see the album selling at least a quarter of a million copies worldwide in total.

    Troy Ave, probably the wackest rapper after Lil' Wayne. No real lyrical talent, no flow or even decent delivery to keep it interesting - just mediocre beats.

      He may have accomplished a lot than most rappers, but his music sucks and that's what Troy and Wayne have in common. It would be okay, if they ever made any decent music. And no, the old material by Wayne isn't HipHop either.

      i know most of these rappers would rather stay where they are in life than kiss niggas on the lips and god knows what else behind closed doors like wayne had to do to get where he is.

    • Umollyheadho

      You are dumb af for comparing that nigga to lil wayne. Wayne has accomplished more in the rap industry than most of these rappers could ever dream of doing.

    Grand Hustle has gotta be the one of the weakest crews in rap. Even YMCMB has better spitters LOL. At least they got B.O.B. and Iggy to make hits for white folk.

      This dude sounds like 50's son if he ever decided to rap.. He might be able to change his name to lil Fif.. Sounds to much like 50, maybe if he'd wait until Fifs run is over and then he can come in but not now, he even looks like 50, I can't do it..
