Tip is expanding his Grand Hustle roster by adding Houston street king Trae tha Truth.
Trae and Tip announced the joint venture deal between Grand Hustle and the Houston MC's ABN label on "RapFix Live."
"We're gonna work alongside each other for a common goal and release this Trae tha Truth project," T.I. said of the deal.
The two haven't yet figured out how Trae's upcoming ABN projects will be distributed, however. T.I. is currently signed to Atlantic through Grand Hustle, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Trae's project will travel through the same channels. But Trae doesn't seem overly concerned about the particulars. "Me and Tip are similar in a lot of ways. We both understand what it is," Trae said.
"Grand Hustle is an established brand, ABN is already an established brand, it's about seeing what we can do to parlay what we've already done for ourselves to make it benefit the other and it's a two-way street," T.I. explained.
