I used to be such a fan of T.I.; like, he could simply do no wrong. But then I grew up. Blogs have been talking about the “beef” between two up-and-coming female rappers, Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea, which started over a month ago. Banks expressed her opinion on Azalea being on this year’s XXL Freshman Class list. Basically she thought it was absurd that Azalea picked to be apart of the list. Since then, T.I. has been pretty vocal in defending Iggy Azalea. According to Clutch Magazine, T.I. had this to say in a recent radio interview:
“I mean I know they’re going through their thing, but the fact that she’s speaking upon me and mine and – I never – I ain’t even see it,” T.I. said The Morning Riot show. “That is what I consider – And excuse my language, but that’s bitch shit. You know what I’m saying? I’m a man.”
“Get your man to address me. If you got a man, get him to address me. You ain’t got no business addressing me. keep dealing with that woman. Y’all handle that. You and me, we ain’t got nowhere to go with that.”
Let me preface this by letting you know that I don’t listen to either one of these chicks. However…
Seriously, T.I.? Why are you even involved in this? Be a grown man and sit back while the ladies make their comments about each other. It has nothing to do with you and frankly, it’s a bit soft of you to even be commenting. And what the hell are you talking about? “Get your man to address me…” Why? You shouldn’t have jumped in the midst of this, in the first place. You said something about Banks and she responded. This Iggy chick got him running around here defending her like it’s really all that serious. I guess she must be what she claims…a runaway slave master. I bet she didn’t even have to crack a whip.
