T.I. Addresses Iggy Azalea Ghostwriting Rumors

Rumors have been speculating for quite some time that Australian emcee Iggy Azalea has been relying on ghostwriters–namely her former label head T.I.–to pen her major hits. Well, now we can put that particular story to rest.

“I mean, I ain’t no ghostwriter,” T.I. claimed in a recently-published video Bijou Star TV. “Iggy got her own ideas and thoughts that she presents to the world her own way. I couldn’t write a lot of the shit she say, you know? I couldn’t put her thoughts into words as articulate as she does. You know what I’m saying? She just has a different way of presenting herself and her art. So, I mean—Now don’t get me wrong, everybody in the studio helps with hooks and certain things like that. That goes for me and any of the other top five rappers, performers; you want the best ideas.”

The rapper also touched on the end of his Family Hustle series and his evolution as an artist.

“Really, I just want to continue to evolve as an artist and re-present myself,” he said. “Let people find new things to learn and like about T.I. You gotta grow as a person. An artist is just an extension of you as a person. So, as a person you must grow. So, as an artist it’s inevitable.”
