T.I. Clarifies His Iggy Azalea Comments, Says He’s Working On Her Next Album
Many rap fans expressed a sigh of relief this week when T.I. distanced himself from Iggy Azalea, indicating they were cutting ties because he was sick of “blocking bullets” (his words) for her over the last couple years. Iggy responded on Twitter, expressing surprise and declaring that they were still business partners, despite what Tip implied in the interview. And now the ATL veteran has clarified his comments, echoing the Aussie rapper’s tweets, saying she’s still signed to Grand Hustle and revealing that he’ll be working with her on her next album.
“It’s definitely not a ‘sever my ties, walk away, I’m upset’ thing,” he told the AP. “It was more so like, OK, you have a lot on your plate right now. I’m going to pull back or wait until you come to a place where you’re ready to come back to the table, so we can start again and make history some more.”

“That’s still my partner,” he added. So there’s no beef, just business — though it sounds like he’s ready to weather the same storm of controversies the second time around.
“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.”
