T.I believes that working with Iggy Azalea could have been a mistake!
During a recent interview, he claims that the Austrian rapper tarnished his legacy.
“I’m still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea,” Tip told The Root. “That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] a [music] executive is concerned. To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball.”
Iggy got word of what T.I said and in a post and delete on Twiter she said, “Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaooooooooo. Tip. Sweetie. We have a whole list for you.”

The Grand Hustle CEO is looking for his replacement artist while on Netflix’s “Rhythm And Flow.” The show also features Chance The Rapper and Cardi B. and all three rappers are judges to see who is the best MC across the nation.
The “Fancy” singer’s career took a tumble when she dropped her 2012 controversial mixtape, Ignorant Art. It featured a song called ‘D.R.U.G.S., which samples Kendrick Lamar’s 2010 track ‘Look Out For Detox.’ In one of the lyrics, Iggy raps, “When the relay starts, I’m a runaway slave master.”
That didn't sit well with the hip hop community.
Hopefully T.I can find some new talent!
