T.I.

I'll Sign with Your Label

... for $75 Million

Got $75 million handy? If so, you can sign T.I. to your label ... the hip hop star just became the number-one free agent in rap -- and despite the steep price tag he's putting out ... some deep pockets are already lining up.

Sources close to T.I. tell TMZ ... T.I.'s 10-year contract with Atlantic ran up only a month ago ... but he's already put together his own idea of a $75 million deal:

- 3 albums
- 10-20 percent of publishing, touring, merchandise, film and TV rights
- Corporate endorsement deals
- Exclusive signing of all Grand Hustle artists

Sources close to T.I. tell TMZ ... he's already met with some of the industry's biggest names ... including Dr. Dre, who asked him to join Interscope over dinner at Katana recently (see picture) ... and Jay-Z, who wants T.I. in the RocNation family.

We're told Sony's put a $50 million deal on the table so far ... and Universal's meeting with him later this week to make an offer too.

All in all, not a bad group to have knocking at your door ...

TI is a dime a dozen. Why would anyone want to pay him $5 thousand to sign to their record label? TI should be called TO - Totally Overrated.

Seriously TI has to use TMZ to get more money from the record companies. Sad.

He signed a 10 year contract. What happens when he's in jail for 5 of those years? Does he still get paid?

Really? If this group comes knocking at my door my sweet little .357 will explain a few things to them. I don't say this in a racist vein but they look dangerous.
