While in a interview with Chicago’s 107.5, T.I. stated that he knew about the Senior VP of A&R position and that the label actually asked him does he think Young Jeezy would be a good for the position.
“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. 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.”
“Now as far as me, I don’t know if I could necessarily do it. 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.”
