T.I.: Iggy Azalea Is a Free Agent
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.
