Sandrarose.com was the first to break the news that rap mogul T.I. "Tip" Harris signed a new record deal with Columbia Records.
Friend of the blog, Shawn "Tubby" Holiday, Columbia's new SVP of Urban A&R, was instrumental in getting the deal done. Shawn is pictured above with T.I.
Music mogul Pharrell Williams will executive produce T.I.'s fist album on Grand Hustle/Columbia in early 2014. DJ Toomp and Timbaland will also produce the much-anticipated project.
T.I. and his imprint Grand Hustle Records parted ways with Atlantic Records earlier this year. The split was an acrimonious one.
