Will T.I. Sign Troy Ave To Grand Hustle? We Asked Him

Hustle Gang X BSB.

Troy Ave continues to stack his wins. So far this year he’s graced the XXL Freshman cover, performed at Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert and on Thursday brought Diddy, Ma$e and T.I. together for his “Your Style” remix — and he’s done it all independently.

Next up, the Brooklyn MC promises his Major Without a Deal LP, though if he ends up signing a deal with T.I.’s Grand Hustle, he may want to consider a title change.

“I can say that it is a possibility,” Tip told MTV News on Tuesday when we asked him if he was adding Troy Ave to his roster, which already includes B.o.B, Iggy Azaela, Trae tha Truth and Young Dro. “In the near future there could be some announcements made. In the near future there could be, among others.”

Troy and T.I. raised a few eyebrows when they posed for an Instagram picture back in May; then on June 1 the Atlanta rap veteran joined the rap rook on the Summer Jam stage in New Jersey. Tip’s verse on the revamped “Your Style” is the first chance that fans get to hear how they sound in the studio together and it increases chatter about a possible deal.

“I’m sure the music would be phenomenal,” T.I. said of prospective collaborations with Troy. “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.”
