Atlantic Records/Warwick SaintT.I. has spoken up on where he stands professionally with Iggy Azalea, who he mentored and helped in the early stages of her career.
In an interview with Billboard, Tip speaks openly about whether or not Iggy has ruined her image after spending a lot of time ranting on social media last year. “I think that’s her decision if she allows it to be damaged,” T.I. tells Billboard. “Her actions will determine how much it will be damaged. The ball is still in her court.”
After catching wind of his comments, Iggy responded via Twitter. “Here’s the deal, I am still signed to @tip and do business with him. The first I’ve heard of us having an ‘issue’ is via a radio interview,” she wrote. “Personally, i don’t think the radio is the place to talk about your personal issues with someone that’s part of your team…”
Iggy adds, “He seems to think theres nothing wrong with what he said, everybody else seems to disagree. Im sure tip will publicly clarify what he meant when he feels he has the right platform to do so and other than that, im chillin.”
TMZ reports the pair mutually parted ways in 2013, when she signed with Island Def Jam. Iggy was initially signed to Tip’s Grand Hustle label where she released her 2012 album Glory.
