Exclusive: T.I. Fulfilled His Contractual Obligations With Atlantic, On The Verge Of Signing With Sony Records

tip2

Back in December, multi-platinum selling rapper T.I. released his latest album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The New Head which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 179,000 copies in the United State. The Grammy Award winning rapper also fulfilled his contractual obligations with Atlantic Records when he dropped Trouble Man: Heavy Is The New Head. He is now a free agent and in the past, the Atlanta-native mentioned that he would like to finish his career at Atlantic Records but things may have changed. It is now being reported that T.I. had a meeting at Sony Records.

According to Sandra Rose , “According to my insider at Sony Records, rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris is on the verge of signing a new record deal with Sony. T.I., an artist on Atlantic Records since his 2001 debut LP, I’m Serious, left Atlantic’s lowball offer on the table and is considering offers from other major labels. According to my source, T.I. and Grand Hustle CEO Jason Geter met with the head honchos of Sony Records yesterday to discuss a “big deal” for T.I. The big names in the room included Doug Morris, Chairman & CEO of Sony Music Entertainment; Shawn “Tubby” Holiday, A&R Sony Music; Mark Pitts, President of Urban Music at RCA/Sony and founder of Bystorm Entertainment; and Peter Edge, CEO of Sony’s RCA Music Group. The discussions also included a distribution deal for Grand Hustle Records.”

I believe this story because Sandra Rose has a good relationship with T.I. and Tiny. I also think that this would be a good business decision on T.I.’s behalf.

Goodbye To The Big Wigs: Nicki Minaj’s Hairstylist Terrence Davidson Quits

nicki-minaj-popsicle-2

Lately, Nicki Minaj has been seen wearing basic hairstyles and I thought it was because of her new gig on American Idol. Colorful and oversized wigs have been a part of Minaj’s brand since she came on the scene a few years ago. It is now being reported that celebrity hairstylist, wig creator and creative director for Nicki Minaj, Terrence Davidson has called it quits. He announced in a press release, that he parted ways with Minaj because of creative differences and other career opportunities. Below is Davidson’s official statement:

I would like to inform the media and supporters that I’ve decided to step away as hair stylist and wig creator for Nicki Minaj. It has been an amazing experience offering me a chance to express my creativity and exhibit my love for the art form of wig design. I have decided to part ways from Nicki Minaj because I would like to explore other opportunities within my own brand and re-energize my creativity through work in fashion editorial, beauty consultations, media personality, ‘how-to’ lectures and hair show development. I am very proud of the body of work built with Nicki Minaj and I appreciate the support over the years from fans who’ve expressed love for my craft. Look forward to seeing me larger than life in 2013.

Actor Marlon Wayans Hosts ‘A Haunted House’ Press Reception In NYC, Movie In Theaters Now

Marlon Wayans1

Last night Thursday (January 10), actor Marlon Wayans premiered his funny/horror movie A Haunted House which he stars in for a group of selected journalists, bloggers and industry insiders at the AMC movie theater on 34th Street in Manhattan, followed by a private reception at The Time Hotel on West 49th Street and I was in attendance. The event was spearheaded by 135th Agency. During the reception, Marlon talked about the making of the film and what critics may have to say. “I didn’t make this film for the critics,” said Wayans. He added, “I made it for you…the fans. This film gave me an opportunity to do what I wanted to do without someone trying to reel me in.” He also answered a lot of questions during the Q&A as well as told some pretty cool jokes.

Marlon speaks2

Marlon Wayans, the comic genius creator of Scary Movie and White Chicks, delivers another hilarious spoof, this time taking aim at the found footage horror phenomenon.When overactive man-child Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) takes the plunge and lets girlfriend Keisha (Essence Atkins) move into his house, he quickly senses they’re no longer alone. Videotaping a series of paranormal events, Malcolm is shocked to discover the love of his life carries more than your average relationship baggage: she’s demonically possessed by an evil spirit. Malcolm enlists the help of priest/ex-convict Father Williams (Cedric the Entertainer) to exorcise the demon from his girlfriend before it ruins his relationship… AND his sex life.”

A big congratulations goes out to Harlem’s up & coming rapper and A$AP Rocky’s bandmate A$AP Ferg. He just signed a solo deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, which is also the same label that A$AP Rocky is signed too. Ferg gained a buzz off the success of his single “Work” which gathered over 1.4 million views on YouTube. Polo Grounds confirmed the signing in a new press release.

I’m just proud right now because this is everything we wished and hoped for,” commented Rocky on Ferg’s signing. “A$AP Ferg worked hard for this and I put all my faith and backing into him. I feel like ‘Work’ is our generation’s “Sippin On Some Syrup” [Three 6 Mafia feat. UGK] or “Chickenhead” [Project Pat feat. La Chat & Three 6 Mafia], it has that feeling.”
