AceShowbiz - Long after they ended their business relationship, T.I. is still regretting his decision to sign Iggy Azalea into his label so much that he wants someone to help him forget it. In an interview with The Root, the hip-hop mogul called the time he spent to work with the female emcee his career "blunder."
"I'm still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea," he said during the interview. "That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] a [music] executive is concerned." Not stopping there, Tip went on saying that their time working together was like "when Michael Jordan went to play baseball" in his mind.
Iggy caught wind of the interview and proceeded to hit back. "Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaoooooooo," so she wrote in a since-deleted tweet, suggesting that he had made a lot of mistakes in his career as a music mogul. "Tip. Sweetie. We have a whole list for you."
T.I. signed Iggy to his label Grand Hustle Records in March 2012 after executive producing her debut album "The New Classic". The Atlanta rapper was instrumental in helping develop his protege in the early years of her career, but when she began to rub people the wrong way by calling herself a "runway slave master" on her track "D.R.U.G.S.", he began to back away slowly from the Aussie beauty.
Later in 2015, the "No Mediocre" rapper finally decided to part ways with Iggy after her beef with Q-Tip, who sent her a message urging her to be more aware of hip-hop's relationship with race, politics and history. At the time, she hit back, "I'm also not going to sit on Twitter & play hip-hop squares with strangers to somehow prove I deserve to be a fan of or influenced by hip-hop."
