After years of steady grinding, Troy Ave is on the way to making his biggest move yet.
In an interview with Power 105’s Angela Yee insude the press room of the 2014 BET Awards, T.I. confirmed that he’s in the last stages of signing the Brooklyn, N.Y., rapper to his Grand Hustle label. The southern rhymer couldn’t be more excited about it.
“It’s in the works,” T.I. said. “We had verbals. Lawyers just got to do they thing, but it’s definitely something that we’re looking forward to.”
Tip also said they’re planning to shoot the video for the ‘Your Style’ remix featuring Puff Daddy, himself and Ma$e.
“Shout out to everyone who’s been supporting the remix by the way, featuring Puff and Ma$e, and one-time for that reunion, [but] we need to get that video shot so we can get it out to the people,” he stated.
It was just last week that Troy Ave spoke to Hot 97’s DJ Absolut, and said that he’s developed a tight relationship with the Rubberband Man. “He seen what I was doing,” said the ‘Only Life I Know’ rapper. “He was like, ‘Man, I’ma connect with you.’ He reached out like the real ones should. He was just like, ‘Yo, what you need help with? Let’s put something together, let’s chop it up.'”
