T.I. recently spoke about his business relationship with Iggy Azalea on HOT 97’s Ebro in the Morning. Before revealing what the last straw in their business relationship was, Tip made sure to defend the “Fancy” rapper and all she had to deal with as an emerging rapper in the game. “In her defense, she had a lot thrown at her at one time. Any human being anywhere [is gonna] have a hard time adjusting.” He goes on to say, “It’s very difficult to be the new kid and to be the butt of the jokes…It came at a time when culturally in this nation—when she’s not from here—we were actually looking for a source to place that pent-up aggression. Some stuff they brought upon themselves. In some cases, it kind of was the easiest place to put some pent-up aggression.”
Tip then reveals that Iggy’s Twitter feud with Q-Tip was what prompted his decision to sever ties with Iggy. He basically chocks it up to always coming to her rescue.
“After I kind of had smoothed it over, like okay, ‘What is really meant to be said here is…’ Then, after it was cool, you know what I mean, everything was cool,” T.I. recalled. “And then they kind of came back and undid what I had just [orchestrated].”
Despite this, Tip is still rooting for Azaela. “I really do feel that they just needed a little more time to adjust, which I feel they can do,” he revealed. “They have the talent, they have the charisma… They have all the tools necessary to move beyond those situations.”
After his interview Iggy decided to clap back on Twitter. View the tweets below. We will be talking about T.I severing ties with Iggy on The Noir Show tonight (Friday) from 6-9PM EST.
Heres the deal, I am still signed to @tip and do business with him. The first ive heard of us having an “issue” is via a radio interview.
