Tip confirms that one of the many artists he was interested in signing, Yo Gotti, has officially joined the team.
Around a month ago T.I.revealed a list of artists that he was looking at to join the expanding Grand Hustle roster. Among them were Kirko Bangz, Problem, Jeremih and Yo Gotti. Today, Tip has confirmed in a new interview that a deal with Gotti has gone through.
We'll have to wait and see what has happened with Kirko, Problem and Jeremih, but for now, Tip announced the signing the Memphis, Tennessee native. "[Yo] Gotti has officially joined the Gang," the Kang said.
T.I. also revealed that he's been eyeing Maino and Uncle Murda to join Hustle Gang, as well as a rising Pittsburgh rapper named Hardo.

[Update: Yo Gotti Denies Signing]
While T.I. made a fairly official-sounding statement last week, Yo Gotti has denied that he has signed with Hustle Gang. Gotti expressed that what T.I. had said was misunderstood and mis-reported by blogs, and that that he is still working with his own label CMG, and plans to release his album I Am in November.
T.I. has yet to clarify the situation. Watch Gotti's statement below.
