Now what we’re NOT going to do is drag Iggy Azalea’s name through the mud again.
During his interview on The Breakfast Club on Monday, T.I. said Iggy “switched up” and “started acting different” when she, according to him, realized white people liked her music and didn’t need to rely on the African American community.
“I really feel like she was meant to be great,” he said. “What happened was, and this is just my opinion… keep in mind I didn’t say it to speak down on shawty. This is my truth. I’m sharing it. I don’t wish no ill will on her.”
He added, “She happens to be the biggest thing tomorrow, great. But as far as I’m concerned, when she found out White people liked her and she didn’t really need Black people to like her, she switched up. Started acting different. Made moves I wasn’t proud of. It placed my reputation in the line of fire. She was very arrogant about it.”
Iggy, tired of T.I. running his mouth, decided to respond.
“When will this guy shut up,” she said in a series of now-deleted Tweets. “The only song you ever were a part of making was ‘100. Thankyou for that, but you were NOT a part of the creative OR executive process on that album. Which is why I’ve always taken issue with you trying to approximate yourself with it’s success.”
Iggy added: “Please move on and speak about artist you are (hopfully) actually helping, and stop trying to bring me up for relevance. I don’t bring your ass up, NO ONE is asking about you. I’m tryna be nice because I genuinely have better and more interesting things happening…”
“But seeing a man speaking out of his asshole and blurting our one thing in public and another in private for years is really infuriating. Keep it pushing sweetie & worry about what your next story line is for family hustle.”
