T.I.'s single "I'm Flexin'" may have been available on various online retailers for several months now, but according to representatives at the rapper's Grand Hustle label, the song was never licensed for retail. According to label CEO Jason Geter, Grand Hustle hasn't gotten any revenue from sales of the song.
The song is included on the DJ Cortez and DJ Ransom Dollars Mixtape "F**k the Competition Vol. 3," and Geter believes that DJs partner with distribution companies for mixtape profits.
"No one should be seeing money off of a T.I. record if we're not seeing money off of that, period," says Geter. "With Amazon or iTunes or any major distributor, they should be held accountable."
