T.I. Calls Iggy a Career Blunder, Iggy Claps Back

Published

T.I. and Iggy Azalea are bumping heads yet again after he admitted that signing her was the “biggest blunder” of his career. Implying she employed several ghostwriters and exposed herself as an untalented rapper, T.I. let the insults fly during a recent interview on The Breakfast Club.

While sitting down with Charlamagne Tha God, T.I was asked to explain why he said Iggy Azalea was the biggest mistake of his career. Stopping to clarify the original question that prompted his response, T.I said he was asked: “What in your career do you think you still have to accomplish?” T.I remarked he needed to introduce another female rapper to “undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea”, to which Charlamagne asked why she was regarded as such.

Believing she had great potential, T.I. said things went left when Iggy began acting differently. “When she found out white people liked her and she didn’t really need Black people to like her anymore, she switched up.” Feeling less proud of the budding artist, he said Iggy’s decisions were erratic and jeopardized his reputation in the rap community. Stating she was “arrogant”, T.I believed her energy simply led others to distance themselves from her professionally and fans to be less supportive of her work. Once news of T.I.’s comments reached Iggy, she clapped back in a series of since-deleted tweets.

“I don’t bring your ass up, NO ONE is asking about you”

Thinking the Grand Hustle exec was attempting to take too much credit for her rise in 2014, Iggy responded. Stating, “When will this guy shut up,” Iggy took issue with T.I’s attempt to approximate himself with her success. Limiting his work to the making of “100”, a song featured on her debut, Iggy said T.I. was not a part of the creative or executive process on the album. She continued by blasting him for continuously “speaking out of his a**hole” in public and private forums to discredit her ability.

Before ending her rant, Iggy spilled a bit of tea on T.I. interrupting a studio session. Recalling he “randomly” walked into her session at Paramount in 2017, Iggy says T.I. begged her to come back to Hustle Gang. Furious at the intrusion, Iggy says she blocked his number and had to change her recording location the next day. Implying he did very little to boost artists signed to his label, Iggy said: “Please move on and speak about artists you are (hopefully) actually helping, and stop trying to bring me up for relevance.” The two have not formally done business together since 2015.

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

Published

on

After years of rumors, Ellen’s behind-the-scenes behavior is being shot into the mainstream, and… it isn’t pretty. The national uprisings have made the people bold. We’ve created a culture of protest, and that means workers are starting to speak out about the abuses they’ve faced, knowing that, honestly, it doesn’t get much worse than the lay-offs and cut hours they’ve already faced because of COVID-19. It all started with a Twitter thread:

Soon, the stories started pouring in. Before we knew it, Buzzfeed was busting this story wide open. “Ellen”, apparently, was a toxic work environment where there things like racism were allowed to float about unchecked. There were countless other reports of Ellen being a diva who didn’t want “unauthorized” people looking at her. Hell, they said she didn’t even tell her workers whether they’d be paid during the pandemic. She cried an apology.

Ellen DeGeneres
“Ellen”

This weekend, the nail met the coffin as a number of outlets reported that James Corden was posed to replace Ellen. Nearly all publications were quick to suggest that this is just rumor, since Ellen is set to return to her show soon, but rumors come from somewhere. I’ve worked in and around Hollywood for a long time. Ms. Ellen’s business wouldn’t be in these streets if WarnerMedia wasn’t planning to put her out there with it.

If you wanna learn more. The Washington Post’s nosey ass has all the details. In the meantime, please enjoy these tweets: #TiffanyPollardForEllen
