It started like this, T.I. stopped by Hot 97′s Ebro In the Morning, ostensibly to discuss his new EP DA’NIC, and his forthcoming tenth album, THE DIME TRAP. But his widely-circulated COMMENTS were about Iggy Azalea, the white, Australian rapper whom he helped ferry into hip-hop’s mainstream. After a 2014 that scored her multiple hits and a laundry listof awards show nominations, this year has been a letdown full of CANCELLED TOURS and FALSE STARTS on a sophomore album. Perhaps most troublingly to the Grand Hustle boss, she’s been constantly at war with other rappers on Twitter, repeatedly getting defensive when confronted with her whiteness. (Britney Spears also threw shots at Azalea when the latter complained about their collaboration, “Pretty Girls,” BRICKING.) Now, Iggy is taking to Twitter in an attempt to set the record straight:
It remains to be seen how the matter of Azalea’s record contract and working relationship with T.I. is resolved.
Rapper Kid Ink weighed in on Iggy Azalea’s legitimacy as a rap and hip hop artist, “For me, as soon as I see numbers, I respect numbers over everything. You can see this many records that is what it is.” He later explained, “At the same time like she’s getting help from these other artists and is still being developed as an artist, I feel like. Whereas a lot of other artists who are doing so much on their own who are still in that same status and caliber that are upset that they don’t have that chance because they don’t have that same team or background.” Kid Ink sounded off on the ongoing war of words between Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea. He shared his opinion on Azealia Banks saying, “Personally I haven’t been able to ever see her point of view on a personal basis, I don’t know, I’m not really familiar with her as an artist.” (clips below)

Kid Ink also shared his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s controversial remarks about racial tension in Ferguson, Mo and gave Larry his own opinion on what isn’t working, “I am very sympathetic to situations especially when people pass but I never have ever agreed with the riot factor, like that just never works. I don’t feel like it works for anyone, it doesn’t make anything better at the end of the day and a lot of people lose from that.” (clip below)

The “Full Speed” artist talked about whether or not the rap and hip hop community will be open to embracing a mainstream gay artist, “Yeah, you know what I’m saying, if the lyrics and everything is acceptable to that urban community,” and added that it might be a slow acceptance process. Kid Ink ended the interview by giving Larry his very own tattoo sleeve featuring all of Larry’s favorite things. (clips below)
