New Music: T.I. f/ Iggy Azalea – ‘No Mediocre’

No Mediocre

All hail the King. T.I. is looking for the baddest bitches on his brand new single “No Mediocre.” The Hustle Gang chief grabs his “Fancy” protégée Iggy Azalea, who stunts over the DJ Mustard production.

“Bad bitches only, ain’t no mediocre / Don’t want no mediocre / I won’t hit no mediocre,” he raps over the steel drums.

The X-directed video, which was shot in Brazil, will premiere June 18.

T.I.’s Grand Hustle/Columbia Records debut Paperwork is due in September. It was executive produced by Pharrell Williams, and produced by Timbaland and DJ Toomp.

Listen to the Hustle Gang collabo below.

    @Fernando, Nicki has two #1 albums, is the most charted female rapper of all tile with 50 bb hot 100 entries. Do u think she cares about a #1 single ? Isnt the new classic flopping ?

    Fernando Reply:

    @nicko, Hell anybody can be the most charted when half of your s**t flops! BTW what ever happened to “massive attack” I could’ve sworn that was her first single??!! Lmfao!

    And yes she cares about a #1. Are you stupid? What artist doesn’t have dreams of having a #1 single in the country. You think she did “super bass” and “starships” just for the hood? lmfao! Girl BYE!

    New Classic just came out cinderella. Have a seat.

    @Fernando,

    And what happened to “Work” , “Change your life” and “Bounce”?

    Wasn’t “Work” her first single?

    You’re not going to win at this boo.

    LOL @ “New Classic just came out”

    It was released in April, it’s now June and it still hasn’t been certified gold despite having 2 Hits “Fancy” & “Problem”.

    Let me also add that Nicki managed to sell 375k+ with a single that peaked at no.26

    @KEN., y’all are both re-dic. Nicki and Iggy are doin their thang. we need to support more female rappers rather than diss for no fuckin reason. both girls have done great, have dope songs, some not-so dope- wack shit (starships)

    Andy Reply:

    @Fernando, Well three quarters of the “sh.t” Iggy released flopped last year so your remark is totally senseless. Massive Attack failed to succeed and, therefore, was scrapped for being the lead single. But I also want to ask you: what happened to Work, Change Your Life and Bounce? Those still are singles.

    Whoever does songs thinking about being number one are more likely to fail. She did Starships and Super Bass because she wanted to expand her audience. There are songs that are not number one and are more memorable and attracted more attention (Starships, for example, did not peaked to #1 and it is one of the best selling songs of the year it was released).

    I feel ashamed of people who think “The New Classic” is a good album. It might be an enjoyable rap pop album, but just that.

    @nicko, LMAOO Stay pressed cuz Nickis RE-FLOP didn’t even get her album to SALE 1 million copies.

    Pink Friday: Roman Reflop only has sold like 800K AFTER 2 YEARS of being out WITH A Re-RELEASE LMAOOO

    Anybody can get a #1 ALBUM these days. Shit all you have to do is sell 60K first week and be #1.

    Nicki still has NO #1 and shes been out for fucking 5 years LMFAOOOO and shes been on 909000880 FEATURES

    Oh really? then why didn’t Mariah’s latest album go No.1 with 60k+

    She has 2 No.1 album. $11.99> $1.29.

    @Fernando, who needs #1 singles when you’ve got #1 albums? lol

    [Reply]

    Fernando Reply:

    @K.I.N.G, Anybody can get a #1 album when it’s no competition! How many albums come out in a week???!! 100 songs on the billboard charts and queen iggy with the #1 and #2 songs in the country. That’s power. That’s something Nicki can never do!

    Why do you think billboard always talks about Mariah Carey, The Beatles, Michael, Whitney with having these records with the most #1s?! Notice they never talk about #1 albums!!!

    Come back when “Pills N Potions” is #1. Meanwhile “problems” is aiming for that #1 throne. Her second #1 before Nicki!

    SLAY

    @Fernando,

    But Nicki’s competition was Kanye and she still debuted at no.2 and rose up to no.1 despite not having a hit song at the time. 200 albums on the billboard chart and queen Nicki with those 2 #1′s

    Iggy’s competition was Future ….. and she has 2 Hits single now so why didn’t it rise to no.1

    Billboard discusses various things lol, let’s not

    @Fernando, Your lack of knowledge about Billboard and music is unbearable. Your meaningless, irrelevant, brainless comments with the solely purpose of misprize Minaj do not affect at all the reality which is as follows: Nicki Minaj is the best female rapper of our times.

    NOT anybody can get a number one album, and if there is or there isn’t competition do not change the fact that a person acquire a number one album, which is not the case of Nicki Minaj since she achieved her first ever number one album eleven weeks after it was released. She did not got the mark in its debut because Kanye West released his album (which, by the way, many people agree [even Kanye] that the best verse in the whole album was made by Minaj).

    Commonly, a week has around 20 album releases (this prove your lack of music knowledge). “100 songs on the billboard” and 200 albums on the billboard that week, it actually sounds more of an accomplishment having a #1 album if we are talking about competition. “That’s power” okay you already proceeded to the delusional zone, sit next to the Kim fans please.

    The records about Mariah, MJ and Whitney are memorable; Iggy’s unique number one is not. Let’s hope she can get more number one songs so she won’t fade away (notice I’m not being shady, just realistic).

    I’ll come back whenever your pointless mouth opens trying to discredit Nicki. And at the moment Iggy peaked #1 you uneducated Kim fans -disguised as Iggy fans- started saying Iggy is the new queen but before that nobody cared about Iggy.

    Sad that loyalty (if we can call it so) came as hate “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. Are you that low in life to support someone just because you hate another one?

    @Fernando, The funny thing is she has a #1 with a “feature” and not a solo single. She is scared now to release a solo single or why do you think she has chosen the song with Rita Ora? She will never get a solo #1

    [Reply]

    Fernando Reply:

    @Rob, BYE! She’s about to have another #1 single under her belt with “problem” meanwhile Nicki struggling to have at least one!

    “Pills N Potions”? LMFAO!

    Iggy is more relevant. Btw she killed this song!

    [Reply]

    Andy Reply:

    @Fernando, “Struggling” you think Nicki’s goal is peak number one? Delusional.

    Iggy is more relevant only because Nicki exists. If Nicki wouldn’t have already opened the rap pop door for Iggy she would be stripping and modeling.

    “She killed this song” yes she killed it with her same boring one-tenth-decent rap.

    HoneyBooBoi Reply:

    @Andy, and Nicki only exists because of Lil Kim – child that bitch just rehashed the Queens style and she will never see Kim Foxy and Missy. Iggy killing at the moment and I am glad – sicki needs to realise Karna is a bitch

    Oh Reply:

    @Rob, Doesn’t matter it’s still her song! U bitches are just mad that Nicki can’t even get a #1 even with a song with Rihanna or Drake LMFAOOO

    Nicki been featured on everybody in the world song and STILL couldn’t even give them a #2 on Billboard LMFAOOOO

    @Fernando,

    I stopped reading at “through”

    Are times really that rough to be getting a simple word such as “threw” mixed up.

    Makes sure your comment is grammatically correct before you try and bash am artist.

    [Reply]

    Andy Reply:

    @Fernando, And there are artists that achieved number one in their first try and are currently inexistent. I do not want to downplay Iggy’s success but the idea that a number one song would give you longevity is easily refuted if you research Billboard history. Besides, it is not a memorable or considerable achievement unless you are interested in past popular singles.

    @New Classic, sadly I can’t enjoy Iggy with her mediocre rapping technique, even worse when her fans claim she is running something she barely is good at or in it: hip hop.

    RIGHT! Thank you, I can tell you’re a REAL fan of Iggy unlike these band-wagoner

    Last year everyone was praying and hoping for more Females to reign in the rap game and now we’re putting them against each other.

    Can’t both female co-exist without drama?

Nicki would demolish her soul if they ever had actual beef do u understand Nicki minaj is an overall better MC she has longevity appeal everything. yall brain washed she just a white rapper thats why everyone is trying to make her seem like shes the new best mc fuck dat.

    Smdh at u nicki stans always tryna drag Iggy and her album sales when being compared to nicki. Iggy has a slow steady selling album.she’s been maintain a spot inside the top 15 on bb charts since its release unlike other rappers that have dropped albums this year and last. John legend had one of the biggest hits this year and his career after nearly a year of his album being released he just hit the gold certified mark for his album like a month or two ago. So Iggy can do the same if she continue to sell like 10 k a week.

    Andy Reply:

    @EveRyder, oh so that’s what it’s called Lip Lock, a “slow steady selling album”? Anyway, Iggy is the hot trend right now. That happens yearly; commonly in the summer. I’m surprised by the success of such an awful rap song but if that’s what people like I have no remedy but stand this mediocre. I would congratulate her if she would have succeeded with a good, memorable song; but it’s just a dreadful plastic-girl anthem I can’t stand and value.

    I do not think the word “mediocre” is good for verses with its unusual last syllable, specially since T.I. can’t rhyme it with other words. Furthermore, its four syllables nature occupy half the 4/4 beat.

    I can’t wait for the ass-liquor-amatory filled video.

  16. KEN.

    Wooo lord that second verse , Go IN Tip!

    *twerk*

    Iggy’s verse was cute but girl what’s this:

    “But I need a bad boy
    Rest in peace Whitney pardon me”

    [Reply]

    Chloé Magnolia Reply:

    “Diva, but I need a bad boy/ Rest in peace, Whitney/ Pardon me, but I don’t think none of these bitches fucking with me”

    Whitney Houston can be considered an original diva, so that’s how that connects. The part where she excuses herself is the beginning of a new line.

    That’s how I interpreted it.

    This song had the potential to be good. The beat is nice but this is more of a Tropical/ Caribbean feel, TI & Iggy were not the right voices for this beat… they just dont fit.
