What better co-sign for a new artist than one from a hip-hop heavyweight. Fresh off signing a label deal with Interscope Records, Iggy Azalea revealed that her debut album for now titled The New Classic, will be executive produced by “The King.” This will be the first time Iggy and T.I. will be working together.

“T.I.’s gonna be helping me with it, kind of A&R-ing, kind of executive producing. He called me up like, ‘Please?’ and I was like, ‘Definitely. You’re Tip; I love you — of course.’ So he’s gonna be helping me out, just reaching out to people and helping me find production and pointing me in the direction of things that I might like.”
