The Tidal roster just got even bigger, as T.I. is the latest artist to receive co-ownership of the streaming service company. The rapper revealed the news on Instagram yesterday (Feb. 22) with the caption, "Newest artist owner in the @TIDAL fam!" He now joins stakeholders and fellow artists Lil WayneRihannaBeyoncéChris MartinMadonnaNicki Minaj and more.

T.I. was quick to jump on the Tidal exclusivity train: His Monday pop-up performance at Atlanta's Greenbriar Mall and his new "Money Talk" single were both streamed on the platform.

If that wasn't enough, T.I. also scored a distribution deal with Jay Z's Roc Nation for The Dime Trap, his 10th studio album, which makes it the artist's first LP released without a major label. Look out for it sometime this year via Grand Hustle Records.
