T.I. and Iggy Azalea’s once very tight relationship is now totally nonexistent.
During an interview with New York’s Hot 97, T.I. revealed that he and Iggy no longer speak. “It took a bit of a red stop,” he told radio host Ebro.
Tip helped manage Iggy’s music career when she first hit the scene, guided her in the right direction and defended her on social media on more than once occasion after being criticized for her work and being accused of stealing hip hop culture.
And although T.I. and Nick Young’s fiancée have parted ways, the Atlanta rapper is still defending the Australia native. “In her defense, she had a lot thrown at her in one time. Any human being anywhere gonna have a hard time,” he said.
“She had a lot thrown at her at one time. It’s very difficult to be the new kid and to be the butt of the jokes,” Clifford Harris, the rapper’s legal name, explained.
But butt of the jokes is probably an understatement. Iggy’s name has been slammed and dragged through the mud over the past several years by a slew of celebrities, including Nicki Minaj, Q-Tip and Azealia Banks. Here is a full timeline of some of the female rapper’s Twitter feuds with other artists.
June 2013: Iggy vs Nicki Minaj:
In June 2013, a Twitter beef started between the two female rappers after an old post by Iggy was shared on social media. Back in June 2010, Iggy dissed Minaj after watching her perform on BET, writing:
“LMAO at Nikki saying she did the BET Awards live. Errrr. If you say so girl.”
Someone retweeted the dated message, making it appear new and drawing Minaj’s attention to it. Once Minaj saw it, she fired her own shots at Iggy, writing:
“Laughing at sh*t u can’t even do … study dat formula … cornball … LMFAO.”
In response, Iggy posted this lengthy message:
“Listen. I see a trend on Twitter in the last week that involves people retweeting artists old tweets. I’m talking OLD, done and dusted a** ones. And while I know most artists are gonna go the silent route and ignore that it’s happening, I’m going to talk to you even though I know the people who get hype off the whole thing are immature anyhow. But hear goes: YES. I have an opinion. And NO, even when I’m a fan of someone it doesn’t mean I like EVERY THING THAT THEY do.
There was once a time when I could crack jokes, talk about TV shows or whose record I hate and whose I loved etc. on Twitter. I can’t do that now. In part because you guys would make life a nightmare and in part because it would just be unprofessional.
But remember there was a time when my Twitter was just for my friends and family to see. Just like yours probably is now. Anyhow – to me, I feel like what you guys are doing is really unfair. That’s my opinion. Right now in 2013.”
