Even The Guy Who Discovered Iggy Azalea Hates Her Now

Iggy Azalea is the undisputed worst. She’s a racist, she’s homophobic, she’s fake as hell, and most importantly, SHE CAN’T RAP. The world has finally caught on to her bullshit, hence the reason she had to cancel her tour since no one wanted to come, and it seems she’s finally hit rock bottom: even T.I., who is responsible for “discovering” her and bringing her to the masses, has turned his back on her messy ass.

During his chat on Thursday, T.I. told HOT 97 host Ebro Darden that his business relationship with Azalea, 25, “took a bit of a rest stop” and that the two have yet to talk personally.

The 35-year-old explained that their silence was due to her Twitter spats, specifically the ‘reckless’ feud with Azealia Banks and her December 2014 fall-out with Q-Tip, whom called out Azalea on issues of cultural appropriation and the history of hip-hop.

“After I kind of had smoothed it over, like okay, ‘What is really meant to be said here is…’ Then, after it was cool, you know what I mean, everything was cool,” T.I. said about defending his former protégée. “And then [Team Iggy] kind of came back and undid what I had just [orchestrated].”

“She had a lot thrown at her in one time, any human being anywhere is going to have a hard time,” he added. “It’s very difficult to be the new kid and to be the butt of the jokes and to be directed, like, be the direction of all the negativity, you know what I mean?”

Yikes. Iggy has since responded to his comments via Twitter, saying she had no idea that there was any kind of issue between herself and T.I. and that the radio interview was the first she’d heard of it.

My guess? T.I. knew Iggy was problematic from the beginning but saw an opportunity to make some quick cash. Now that she’s not bringing in the money anymore, he’s distancing himself from her in order to win back some credibility. Will it work? Eh.
