T.I.’s 10 album deal with Atlantic records is over following his last release, Trouble Man, and now he’s looking for a new home.

Currently, there are MAJOR record labels looking to sign the King of the South, including two run by rappers who have already met with him. We’ll have to wait and see who he decided to sign with and if they meet his demands. See what he’s demanding and who is entertaining the idea of signing him below.
T.I. has already met with Dr. Dre, who is looking to have Tip be part of the Interscope family. Jay-Z and RocNation have also expressed their interest in signing him as well as Universal and Sony, who offered him a deal but for much less than what he wants.
