The controversial rapper Iggy Azalea has been all over the radio since she dropped the hit single, “Fancy.” She has been in the public eye not only for female rapper status, but her “black” voice that she uses when she sings. We ask Iggy: Why you can just be a white rapper like Eminem? Everybody loves him. Just don’t disguise your voice so you sound more ‘black’ when you talk, we can’t even…
Whether or not Iggy’s public persona, etc… prompted T. I. to cut out the singer we will never know. In an interview this past wednesday, T.I. basically said he was done with her. It seemingly came out of nowhere because Iggy didn’t even know she was on the outs.
I don’t think she was that happy about T. I.’s words and would have preferred that their “personal issues” stayed private.
Following her outburst, T. I. backtracked a bit and tried to re-clarify his words. Smh, T. I. just admit that you want to distance herself from her and we will respect you more. No one likes a flip-flopper… has politics taught us anything?
“That’s still my partner,” T. I. said in his most recent interview, ”Her life has taken her in a different direction. My life is still as it was before. But Iggy is doing what she feels makes Iggy happy. That’s what she should do. We’re focused on making the next Iggy record and dodge the same adversities we faced last time.”
I’m not sure you can be in completely different directions when she is your signed artist, but I’m sure whatever is going on between T. I. and Iggy Azalea will come to light soon enough.
