T.I. also refuses to answer questions regarding Floyd Mayweather.
Lil’ Kim has not been shy about her beef with Nicki Minaj with the recent releases of “Identity Theft” and “Flawless (Remix).” Iggy Azalea has not discussed a rumored beef with Minaj, but that hasn’t stopped speculation surrounding a rift between the two Rap stars. Now, it seems Kim and Iggy may find themselves working together amid rumors of a common feud with Nicki.
“I got a call from Kim,” T.I. said in an interview with New York radio station Hot 97. “She said it’s time to find that record to get [an Iggy collaboration] done.”
When the possible feud between Iggy and Nicki was brought up, T.I. said, “Well, in the game of chess, you must think five moves ahead, protect your pieces and cover the board.”
T.I. Says Iggy Azalea Would Be Eager For Remy Ma Collaboration
Kim might not be the only rapper Iggy is set to collaborate with. During the interview, T.I. said she would also be “eager” to work with Remy Ma.
“Yeah, she’s a fan of the sport,” he said when asked about a possible Remy/Iggy collaboration. “I believe she’s gonna be eager to show support…She with the nonsense.”
You have to pay the cost to document the boss. Recent reports reveal that Viacom has denied financial responsibility for its company MTV airing a dead man’s body on T.I.’s Road To Redemption.
During a February 2009 episode, T.I. visited the dead body of Joseph Williams’ at The Haugabrooks Funeral Home in downtown Atlanta, a scene that MTV aired. Following the episode back in 2011, Williams’ family sued Viacom for multiple claims including invasion of privacy, violation of likeness and negligent misrepresentations about the decedent.
After three years of litigation, Viacom rejected a settlement on June 29th “for an amount that, even after deducting from the $5 million policy limit the extensive defense costs incurred during more than three years of litigation, was within the $5 million policy limit of the Insurance Policy,” according to a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. While their insurance policy covers $3 million for “Each Loss”, Viacom alleges that Williams’ family filed multiple charges and thus the company suffered multiple losses, each with high costs.
T.I. nor any of his affiliated companies were mentioned in the suit as being financial responsible for the episode’s airing.
Jeezy has had the streets on lock for a decade, and he shows that nothing’s changed in that department in the “Me OK” video.
The Motion Family-directed visuals for the first single from the upcoming Seen It All bring Jizzle to his native Atlanta, and hordes of people show up to support. Whether it’s T.I., Trey Songz and Rich Homie Quan — all of whom make appearances — or faces that are lesser known to the public, the rapper shows he’s got the backing of his city.
“The video is basically about touching my town, getting in the streets and running through the neighborhoods that I often ran through and getting back out with the homies, kids and people of Atlanta,” Jeezy told MTV News when we visited the set in July.
His fifth solo album, which also includes the title track, “Seen It All,” which features Jay Z and brought Hov to tears, will be available on September 2.
T.I. performed on this weeks edition of SoundClash on VH1. He performed his hits Bring Em Out, What You Know, and his new single No Mediocre. He ended the show with Fall Out Boy and London Grammer joining him on stage as they performed his smash hit, Live Your Life. Check them out below.
T.I. “ain’t no ghostwriter.”
When asked by Bijou Star TV if he’s written rhymes for his Grand Hustle Records artist Iggy Azalea, he says that “Iggy got her own ideas and thoughts that she presents to the world in her own way.”
Claims of Iggy Azalea using ghostwriters, specifically T.I., were reignited when Nicki Minaj told the world that she writes her own rhymes while at this year’s BET Awards.
“What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it,” she said during her acceptance speech.
The internet assumed that she was referring to Azalea. But, according to T.I., while all artists get assistance “with hooks and certain things like that,” Azalea raps her own rhymes.
“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.“
