With a new EP out, T.I. stopped by HOT 97’s Ebro In The Morning to promote Da Nic and more. In their 30-minute conversation, TIP discussed releasing the new EP now, success of The Family Hustle show, the Drake vs. Meek Mill beef, the possibility of an ATL movie sequel, aiming his new album The Dime Trap to his day one fans, and dealing with his artist Travi$ Scott.
Continue after the jump…..
On the subject of another artist he mentored, Iggy Azalea, T.I. revealed his relationship with the Australian rapper has soured.
Asked by Laura Stylez if there was a breaking point, the Atlanta veteran referenced Iggy’s back and forth with Q-Tip that ruined things, after Iggy and her team failed to keep things in control after T.I. came to her defense and settle things.
“After the Q-Tip thing… After I kind of had smoothed it over, like okay, ‘What is really meant to be said here is…’ After it was cool, everything was cool, and then they kind of came back and undid what I had just [accomplished],” he said.
“I’ma be all the way real, I’m a loyal partner. If I rock with you I’m gon’ rock with you…I really do feel that they [Iggy’s team] just needed a little more time to adjust, which I feel they [Iggy’s team] can do. They have the talent, they have the charisma.”
UPDATE (9/17): Iggy Azalea took to Twitter, stating that she is still in business with T.I. and this is the first time any issues were known to her.
Heres the deal, I am still signed to @tip and do business with him. The first ive heard of us having an "issue" is via a radio interview.
