Are the rumors true, or is it just business?

Tory Lanez announced he’ll be producing his first urban album for a female artist. The lucky rapper is his rumored boo, Iggy Azalea. Via Twitter, the Canadian rapper said:

“The first FEMALE URBAN ALBUM i will EXECUTIVE PRODUCE will be @IGGYAZALEA Next Album !!!…. I’ve been wanting to E.P a FEMALE ARTIST ALBUM for a while … I want to RAISE THE BAR .. On the BEATS, PRODUCTION & OVERALL EXPERIENCE of FEMALE ALBUMS … this is going to be fun.”

An online user wanted to know, “why Iggy?” They wrote:

“Why Iggy tho, why not one of these other female rappers?” The Sorry 4 What rapper replied, “She has 65 MILLION RECORDS SOLD …. COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT ….. And went DIAMOND CERTIFIED with her FIRST RECORD …… WHY NOT IGGY?” Take a look:

Social media reactions:

“Tory is right. Iggy is fire when she’s in her bag.” 

“She from a different time, I’d like to see you do this for a new diamond in the rough with star potential.”

“You’ve got a female rapper who’s signed under you, but you keep neglecting her talent @Melii.” 

In May, Melii sat with All Hip Hop and discussed signing with Tory under his One Umbrella Records (she signed in 2019). When asked how is it under his label, she said:

“He’s a very great person. He’s very [intuned] with himself.” She continued, ” He’s confident, and he makes sure that all his artists feel that way, they’re supported. He’s a God-fearing man, which is the best part about it. You’ll see him pray over us, he’s always looking out.

Dating rumors between Iggy and Tory sparked over the summer when they were having dinner in Miami. Earlier last month, Tory was spotted wearing an Iggy T-shirt. Also, in February, Melii denied rumors she was pregnant with Tory’s baby.
