New jacks taking shots at vets? Cold game. In a recent interview with DJ Drama, T.I. introduced his new “Hustle Gang,” which includes Australian female rapper Iggy Azalea, who made XXL Magazine’s 2012 Freshman cover. Previously, another upcoming female rapper, Azealia Banks, didn’t hesitate to question Azalea’s XXL Freshman selection and also took the Interscope Records artist to task for using the term “slave master” in one of her rhymes.
During his interview with Drama, after questioning the motives of Banks’ commentary, Tip said, “Strategically if she really cares about a freshmen cover maybe she could hope that, you know, she’ll suck enough to get shelved and then next year when the freshmen cover comes back around, maybe she’ll still be a freshman. Which brings me to my next philosophy, if you spend half of your day getting money and the other half of your day counting money, you ain’t got no time in your day to worry about nobody else.”
Banks then hit Hip-Hop press release central, aka Twitter, to respond to the “Swagger Like Us” rapper, in kind. “Lol I NEVER needed the next ni**a to sit up on a radio show with me and defend me,” tweeted Banks, before eventually adding, “Come on T.I…. Ni**as is not scared of u and whatever Shyte u got to say on some radio show.
@tip you corny for that one.”
You gotta respect Azealia Banks for sticking to her guns. No pun. But let’s see if the Universal Records signee can drop quality music that matches her Twitter bravado.
