As some might not know, before Meek Mill joined the MMG team he was signed to T.I. and Jason Geter's Grand Hustle Records in 2008. Continuing his sitdown with Billboard's The Juice, Tip explains why the deal fell through.
After my two hiatuses I was put in a position where I couldn't really make moves on Meek as quick as he may have wanted to. I never been one want to hold anyone back or to slow down the success of anybody. I'm the first to try to enhance what you have and if I can't make it better than I shouldn't be a part of it. I love what he's done and I love the fact that what I felt he was able to do, people now see. The potential that i saw in him and the things that I thought he was capable of doing it's been proven to be true.
