|T.I.P.’s .distinctive drawl and unassailable flow has blasted the Dirty South into the mainstream, making Atlanta one of today’s most diverse and vibrant hip-hop scenes. The brightest of Atlanta’s rising stars, Young Thug, hypnotizes, thrills and confounds listeners with his unique sense of melody, entrancing ad-libs, and stream-of-consciousness wordplay.

EMPIRE was founded in 2010 as an artist-friendly, progressive digital distribution company. After early success, and identifying future icons such as Kendrick Lamar, Sage The Gemini, and Rich Homie Quan, EMPIRE was quickly regarded as a tastemaker in the industry and throughout the past five years evolved into a full-fledged record label, distributor and publisher for independent musicians. With the company and roster growing at a breakneck pace, EMPIRE has effectively disrupted a stale business model by bringing its energy, expertise, and acumen to its artists and labels. Given its reputation, EMPIRE works with today’s hottest talent from superstars such as T.I. and red-hot newcomers such as Anderson .Paak. While remaining 100% independent, EMPIRE has also partnered with Atlantic Records for a joint venture, home to breakout star D.R.A.M. and joined forces with Republic Records for the release of Sage The Gemini’s Remember Me album.
