T.I. Defends Iggy After She Was Schooled By Q-Tip
T.I. has once again come to the defense of his artist Iggy Azalea after she was given a respectful and informative lesson on the history of hip-hop by rapper Q-Tip on Twitter. Remember when he “checked” Snoop Dogg for dissing Iggy?
In case you missed it, Q-Tip schooled Iggy about the roots and importance of hip-hop this weekend. “now u are fulfilling your dreams …,” “The Abstract” rapper tweeted. “BUT! you have to take into account the HISTORY as you move underneath the banner of hiphop. As I said before hiphop is fun it’s vile it’s dance it’s traditional it’s light hearted but 1 thing it can never detach itself from is being a SOCIO-Political movement.”
Of course T.I. had to get in on the action because Iggy just needs to be saved so bad and added his two cents to the mix.
If you say so T.I.
Despite Iggy’s obvious infatuation with the Black culture (she’s Australian and raps with a southern accent) she has been silent on issues in the Black community prompting certain rappers to speak out against the rising star. Days before, Azealia Banks blasted Iggy during an interview with Hot 97. Banks expressed her frustrations, saying “I feel, just like in this country, whenever it comes to our things, like black issues or black politics or black music or whatever, there’s always this undercurrent of kind of like a, ‘F*ck you,’” She added, “There’s always like a, ‘F*ck y’all, niggas. Y’all don’t really own shit. Y’all don’t have sh*t.’”
