ATLANTA — It was most appropriate that rap impresario and business magnate T.I. entered into an agreement with Roc Nation’s TIDAL, because the TroubleMan stormed the stage like a force of nature — an unfurled tidal wave of energy that blew back his audience as the “King of the South” introduced portions of his 10th studio album Dime Trap to his most loyal fans late Monday night at historic Greenbriar Mall on the city’s south side.
Tonight prior to his TIDAL X: TIP Atlanta concert, Tip T.I. Harris announced that he has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Roc Nation for his forthcoming 10th studio album ‘Dime Trap’ to be released on his Grand Hustle Records, and that he has become the 19thartist-owner of TIDAL, the global music entertainment platform.
Tip debuted his new music video for “Money Talk,” his newest single, starting 12:01am ET on Tuesday, February 23 exclusively on TIDAL. You can find the video at tidal.com/tip.
Tip announced tonight prior to his livestreamed TIDAL X: TIP show in Atlanta that he has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Roc Nation for his forthcoming 10th studio album ‘Dime Trap’ to be released on his Grand Hustle Records. The first single, “Money Talk,” produced by C4 and Kip and is available on TIDAL, the global music and entertainment platform.
Tip has also announced that he is the 19th artist-owner of TIDAL, joining JAY Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Lil Wayne, Coldplay, Madonna and others in offering up exclusive music, videos, concerts and other content to bring fans closer to their favorite artists.
Dime Trap will mark Tip’s return to his trap music roots, the genre he helped put on the map when he created Grand Hustle Records and released his multi-platinum album ‘Trap Muzik’ featuring classics “24’s,” ”Rubberband Man” and “Let’s Get Away.” As he told Complex this fall ‘Dime Trap’ will sound like “’Trap Muzik’ on steroids.” Over the course of his career, Tip has won three Grammy Awards and has sold over 10 million albums in the US alone.
Along with releasing ‘Dime Trap,’ Tip will star in HISTORY/A+E Studios’ “Roots” premiering Memorial Day, as well the upcoming movie “Sleepless Night” opposite Jamie Foxx and Gabrielle Union. The fifth season of his hit VH1 series ‘‘T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle,’ airs this summer. The winter collections of his two clothing lines Hustle Gang & Akoo are currently in stores.
