T.I.: Iggy Azalea Is a Free Agent

Iggy Azalea and T.I.

Iggy Azalea announced that she had signed a deal with Interscope Records earlier this year, but it may have been premature. According to her Grand Hustle boss T.I., the Aussie rapper is still unsigned.

“Iggy is a free agent,” Tip told Bu Thiam, VP of A&R at Def Jam, on “MTV’s Hip Hop POV.”

The blonde bombshell had touted a deal with Interscope and a summer release for her debut album The New Classic. “Interscope, if you were wondering,” she tweeted in January. “Get used to me + jimmy [iovine] smashing shit, cause thats the plan.”

According to sources, a deal was never actually in place. However, she did release the T.I.-assisted “Murda Bizness,” which was billed as the lead single off the album.

The Hustle Gang member is currently in talks with other labels including Def Jam. Her EP Glory is due this month featuring collaborations with Mike Posner, B.o.B, and Big Sean.

    @beyonce is desperate, Wow. Is your presence here really necessary. If she’s a “runaway slave master” who’s “shitting on the past” doesn’t that sound like as a runaway slave master shed be running from slavery? You just heard “runaway slave master” and jumped on it.

    SMDH it’s probably a distribution deal. Just because she’s not signed to the label as an artist doesn’t mean she doesn’t have some type of deal with them. She could have a management deal with the label like Wale & Roc Nation or a distribution deal where they agree to distribute her music in exchange for some advantage of theirs, probably enivatbly cheating herself.

    Both are pretty common.

    Good to see females buzzing again.

    Is Tip trying to drop her like some weight that got too heavy ? Both have been under serious fire recently. In this specific configuration, T.I. is nothing but a businessman, therefore it wouldn’t shock me.

    Or maybe I’m just crazy paranoid ! Ha.
