After parting ways with Columbia in 2014, the rapper has inked a distribution deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation for his upcoming album, Dime Trap, according to Billboard. The rapper’s next effort will be his first album released without a major label, though Roc Nation is itself distributed through Universal Music Group.

In addition, he’s announced that he’s joined the list of artists who are co-owners of Tidal, including Kanye West, Beyoncé, J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and others. To celebrate the news, Tip released his new single from the album, “Money Talk”, exclusively on the streaming service.

The news comes after Tip hosted a private “Thank You Atlanta!” concert at that city’s Greenbriar Mall where he was joined by his pregnant wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris as well as Usher, Keri Hilson, Polow Da Don, Rock City, Killer Mike, among others.
