Rapper T.I. discovered pop princess and Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea, who had the song of the summer of 2014 with "Fancy." How does Tip feel about his girl getting dissed left and right by critics and fellow rappers?
"That pisses me off," the rapper said. "Simply because they don't have any real substantial grounds. 'I don't like them.' Why? 'Just 'cause.' What you mean just 'cause? Since when do you get the right to judge people? Who died and made you the emperor of Egypt? That kind of shit and then the things that they accuse her of, like the racist stuff. That's not even her. That's not even in her. Me knowing her, knowing where she comes from—for real, the whole racist thing, that's American—we forget, she's not American. So the whole black, white, color divided thing, it isn't a part of her DNA like it is here in America."
Tip furthered, "It's just ignorant to me. In this day and age, to be a race of people who are demanding equality and speaking out on injustices and wanting to be treating fairly, to stand up and do the exact same thing in opposite to someone unwarranted for no reason, it's hypocritical. I'ma ride with her. So, ya'll go ahead. Anybody got a problem with it just know, it gonna be one 'cause I'm coming."
And that's that!
