T.I. to Executive Produce Iggy Azalea’s Debut Album

T.I. and Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea is getting a co-sign from the King. The Atlanta rapper will executive produce the Aussie newcomer’s upcoming debut.

“I’m working with a different production company for my album than what I did for my mixtape [Ignorant Art], and I don’t know who yet,” Iggy told MTV News. “I’m still looking. T.I.’s gonna be helping me with it, kinda like A&Ring, kinda like executive-producing.”

The 21-year-old rapper, who recently signed to Interscope Records, explained how she linked up with Tip. “He called me up and was like, ‘Please.’ And I was like, ‘Definitely. You’re Tip. I love you, of course.’ So he’s gonna be kinda helping me out, like just kinda reaching out to people and helping me find production and pointing me in the direction of things that I might like.”

They plan to get in the studio next week. “We’re gonna start on that next week together. I’ll probably fly out to Atlanta and we’ll do it in between there because he’s weird with traveling and stuff. I understand. We’re in touch with each other. I have legal issues, he has legal issues. I get it. So hopefully that will be really dynamic and it’ll help speed things along.”

Iggy is eyeing a summer release for her debut The New Classic. “Hopefully if all goes to plan, my album will be out in June and I’ll have it recorded by the end of the month.”

    She seems so different in this interview than what I see in her videos. I like the contrast. I’m feeling the accent AND she’s real sexy. I love the fact that she’s cute, but at the same time kinda hood. I gotta hear what she and T.I. come up with.

    Hopefully this will turn out good for her. I like her style, lyrics need to improve but otherwise she’s a pretty good artist.
