T.I. Backtracks, Calls Iggy Azalea “My Partner”

"Takers" New York Special Screening - Arrivals

T.I. or Tip had to clarify his comments on protege Iggy Azalea this week. After explaining that their professional partnership had ended after he defended her a few too many times, but he’s changed his tune.”That’s still my partner. Her life has taken her in a different direction. My life is still as it was before. But Iggy is doing what she feels makes Iggy happy. That’s what she should do. We’re focused on making the next Iggy record and dodge the same adversities we faced last time.”

“It’s definitely not a ‘sever my ties, walk away, I’m upset’ thing,” he said in an interview with the AP. “It was more so like, OK, you have a lot on your plate right now. I’m going to pull back or wait until you come to a place where you’re ready to come back to the table, so we can start again and make history some more.”

And yes, Iggy is still signed to his Grand Hustle label!
