T.I. had Iggy on his brain once again during his latest appearance on The Breakfast Club. The “Family Hustle” star explained why he decided to part ways with the Australian-born artist.
“I feel like she was meant to be great,” Tip said around the interview’s 23-minute mark in the clip above. “As far as I’m concerned, I feel like when she found out white people liked her and she didn’t really need black people to like her anymore, she switched up, started acting different, made moves that I wasn’t proud of, that kind of placed my reputation in the line of fire. And she was very arrogant about it. … The raps were dope at first, you know what I mean? Of course, she had…help,” T.I. said with Charlamagne noting that she had writers.

“It was dope at first, and then she exposed herself so much,” T.I. added. “And I feel like it just kinda—it undid all the good that was done.”
T.I. executive produced Iggy’s debut album “The New Classic”, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. He believes the fame she gained from the project went to her head.
The ATL rapper previously stated in an interview with The Root that he needs to find another female artist to undo the “blunder” that was Iggy Azalea.
“That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] a [music] executive is concerned,” he explained. “To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball.”
In a since deleted tweet, Iggy responded: “Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaoooooooooooooo. Tip. Sweetie. We have a whole list for you,” she wrote.
“He’s a huge misogynist and has never been able to have a conversation with any woman in which he doesn’t speak like a fortune cookie,” she added.
