T.I. Lands Endorsement Deal With Cognac Company
T.I. has been moving at light speed since he completed the official terms of his prison sentence back in March. The ATL rapper recently dropped his 'F--- a Mixtape' project, released singles from his upcoming album 'King Uncaged' and now he has announced a new endorsement deal with Remy Martin Cognac.
During a recent on-air chat with VJ Ricky Smiley at Atlanta's V103 radio station, T.I. announced that he had been approached by the French Cognac company to help promote their brand. TIP explained that he had just returned from Cognac, France, where he had already finalized the new endorsement deal with Remy Martin. TIP didn't reveal too many details about his promotional plans with the company, but the Grand Hustle Records CEO already has some experience with corporate marketing under his belt. In 2007, T.I. landed a major endorsement deal with General Motors, which he later lost following his conviction on federal gun charges.
In 2008, T.I. told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution that his convictions forced him to miss out on several films, shows, and business ventures that cost him well over $10 million in revenue. T.I. is making up for lost time this year, with a role alongside Chris Brown in the upcoming August film, 'Takers,' and possible plans to star in a sequel to his 2006 film 'ATL.'
T.I.'s seventh studio album 'King Uncaged' is currently set for an August release.
