The spiteful back-and-forth between Iggy Azalea and T.I., who inked Iggy to Hustle Gang back in 2012, continued on Monday as the “Fancy” rapper set the record straight on their past and blasted Tip for what she claimed to be continuous lies.
“Please move on and speak about artist you are (hopefully) 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,” she wrote in a series of since-deleted tweets. “But seeing a man speaking out of his asshole and blurting [out] 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.”
The response was prompted by quotes from T.I. taking credit for Iggy’s early career success and also calling the “blunder” of signing her the “tarnish of his legacy” as a music exectutive. “As far as I’m concerned, I feel like when she found out white people liked her and she didn’t really need black people to like her anymore, she switched up, started acting different, made moves that I wasn’t proud of, that kind of placed my reputation in the line of fire,” T.I. told The Breakfast Club. “And she was very arrogant about it.”
Azalea also claimed that T.I. only helped her write one song, “100,” and said that he tried to re-sign her to Hustle Gang back in 2017. “I don’t understand how you could think you were responsible for something you never even heard until it was mixed and mastered,” she continued. “I think about it but honestly what do I get out of that?”
