In music business relations can end abruptly like in any other walk of life. Goodnight, it’s over with, that’s all he wrote. Hip-hop mogul T.I. confirmed today on Wednesday, Sept. 17, that he’s cut all business relations with his former musical apprentice, the artist Iggy Azalea.
The “Whatever You Like” song maker, 34, has been given the musical credit with engineering Azalea’s meteoric rise to stardom in the hip-hop music world, but he shared with the crew of Ebro in the Morning that he was now moving away in a new direction and bowing out from his duties as her musical and business mentor.
Iggy Azalea, who’s been at the head of numerous controversies in the year gone by, was famously tutored in December by fellow rapper Q-Tip.
At the particular point in time, Q-Tip issued 40 direct tweets to the “Fancy” hit maker, teaching her about the history of the hip hop industry within music. T.I. later chimed in via Twitter and even took an defensive stance with his mentee, who faced immense fan and media backlash from the Internet for supposedly “misappropriating black culture.”
T.I who was raised in Atlanta used a suitable metaphor elaborate that the situation with Azalea, 25 had changed somewhat. “Right now, Imma block the bullets…” he recalled. “When I say, ‘Go?’ Go! Don’t stand around and tote while I’m blocking bullets. You slowing me down, you know what I’m saying?”
T.I. finished by adding an motivating addition for Azalea and her media team. “But I really do feel that they just needed a little more time to adjust, which I feel they can do,” he shared. “They have the talent, they have the charisma.”
Singer Iggy Azalea most recently made music news headlines after confirming — in a Seventeen magazine cover story — that she had partaken in cosmetic surgery, having gone under the surgeons knife and she had a nose job and then added chin implants. All this cosmetic surgery work performed also so soon after also having work done on her breasts.
In that article Iggy addressed her many online and media haters and explained why she went off social media after being body shamed and embarrassed into doing so.
