Iggy Azalea Speaks Up Against Azealia Banks, T.I. Stands By Her


Since Harlem femcee Azealia Banks fired Twitter shots at Aussie rapstress Iggy Azalea, the social media beefing continues to dominate timelines.

In a recent interview on Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, T.I., Iggy and the Grand Hustle gang stopped by and addressed the situation.

“This is my day and my achievement,” the Ignorant artist said. “You have to work to have your own achievements with all due respect. Instead of worrying about who else is on there, you should just be happy that I’m on there as a woman.”

Tip wasted no time in defending the first lady of his Hustle crew.

“Strategically if she really cares about a freshmen cover maybe she could hope that she’ll suck enough to get shelved and then next year when the freshmen cover comes back around, maybe she’ll still be a freshman. If you spend half of your day getting money and the other half of your day counting money, you ain’t got no time in your day to worry about nobody else.”

Banks soon went on a Twitter tirade against the ATL native: “Come on T.I…. N*ggas is not scared of u and whatever shit u got to say on some radio show. @tip you corny for that one.”

“Everybody got something slick to say, but no one got an explanation,” she added.

In a genre where talented female rap hopefuls are hard to come by, shouldn’t they dead the tweef and support one another or can only one be on their A-game? Let me know!

T.I. to Executive Produce Iggy Azalea’s Debut

Iggy Azalea has tapped the King, T.I., to executive produce her debut The New Classic. The Australian-born femcee gave in to the Grand Hustle Records CEO who asked to take on her album.”T.I.’s gonna be helping me with it, kind of A&R-ing, kind of executive producing,” Azalea told MTV News. “He called me up like, ‘Please?’ and I was like, ‘Definitely. You’re Tip; I love you — of course.’ So he’s gonna be helping me out, just reaching out to people and helping me find production and pointing me in the direction of things that I might like.”The blonde rapstress also joked about their legal affairs. “See we’re in touch with each other. I have legal issues; he has legal issues. I get it.”

After a successful mixtape release last fall for her Ignorant Art, Azalea is not rushing the project, letting it come together organically.

“In terms of writing the record, that’s not the part that really worries me; that’s easy,” she said. “It’s finding the production and finding something cohesive that’s right for the direction of the album. It could happen next week or I might go until the end of February and not find it. You just never know when you’re gonna have that magic.”

The “Last Song” rapper is crossing her fingers for a summer release. “If all goes to plan, my album will be out in June and I’ll have it recorded by the end of the month.”
