T.I. has been more of a crisis manager than rapper lately and it’s all because of his mentee, Iggy Azalea.

After being blasted by Azealia Banks as a culture stealing wanna-be, Iggy clapped back by calling Banks a miserable bigot, amongst other things. That didn’t sit well with rapper Q-tip who tried to enlighten Azalea about the culture and history of hip hop.

In a lengthy Twitter diatribe, Q gave Iggy some food for thought stating:

“You have to take into account the HISTORY as you move underneath the banner of hiphop. As I said before, hiphop is fun it’s vile it’s dance it’s traditional it’s light hearted but 1 thing it can never detach itself from is being a SOCIO-Political movement.”

The conscious rapper went on to continue educating young Igs.

“Did u know that remnants of slavery exist today thru white privilege? When certain ‘niceties’ r extended your way because of how u look? Isn’t that crazy? I say this 2 say u are a hiphop artist who has the right 2 express herself however she wishes. This is not a chastisement this is not admonishment at ALL this is just one artist reaching to another hoping to spark insight into the field you r in. I say this in the spirit of a hopeful healthy dialogue that maybe one day we can continue.”

While the “Fancy” rapper never responded to Q-tip, her Hustle Gang boss did. In a twitter rant of his own, T.I. went toe-to-toe with a few of Tip’s statements. Click through the gallery below to see the tweets (read from the bottom up).

Drizzy has signed his first cousin Christopher “Royalty” Graham to OVO.

If you couldn’t tell from the last name, the Memphis-bred rapper is actually blood-related. His father and Drake’s dad, Dennis Graham, are brothers, and it’s safe to say music definitely runs through their genes.

We caught up with the new signee, who now just goes by the stage name Chris Graham, at the 2017 American Music Award’s about his upcoming project, who’s a better singer him or Drake, and the best advice his big cousin has given him.
