T.I. was recently asked about his thoughts on fellow rapper Young Jeezy taking the role of Senior Vice President of A&R at Atlantic records.
Young Jeezy’s has taken a new job as Senior Vice President of A&R at Atlantic Records and although this may have been news to many, T.I. knew about Jeezy’s A&R gig for quite some time now.

“I think that’s phenomenal for Young and I’ve known about it for quite some time now. He came and spoke to me and asked me how I felt about it as far as whether or not it was a good fit for him,” T.I. explained.
“And they came and asked me how I felt about it whether I felt that he was a good fit for the position and what not and I think it’s phenomenal…Me and Young we got a personal relationship as well as a professional one. And it’s a mutual respect that goes a long way back.”
T.I. was also asked if t a similar position would be a good fit for him. The rapper explained that with his extra time dedicated to acting and other projects he doesn’t see where such a role would fit into his schedule.
“Now as far as me, I don’t know if I could necessarily do it,” said the rapper.
“When I’m not working on my projects or focusing on my label’s projects I’mma go do me some movies or I’mma be bouncing back and forth doing other things. So I just don’t know how much undivided attention I could dedicate to a position like that.”
