Rapper T.I. has called his former collaborator and mentee Iggy Azalea a “blunder” in his career — and the female rapper has already fired back.
“I’m still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea,” T.I. told The Root. “That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] a [music] executive is concerned. To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball.”
According to E!, Azalea responded on Twitter, but her tweets have since been deleted. A spokesperson for Azalea has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
“Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaoooooooooooooo,” Azalea’s tweet read. “Tip. Sweetie. We have a whole list for you.” According to the outlet, Azalea also called T.I. a “misogynist” in another now-deleted tweet.
“The tea I could spill on what bulls— this is but at the end of the day I think people can see it’s clear he’s salty,” Azalea reportedly wrote. “He’s a huge misogynist and has never been able to have a conversation with any woman in which he doesn’t speak like a fortune cookie.”
T.I. signed Azalea to his label, Grand Hustle Records, in 2012, and they worked together on songs like “No Mediocre” and “Change Your Life.” However, in 2015, T.I. said he cut ties with the Australian rapper, partly due to her constant beefs on Twitter.
