On Monday (June 16) Tip dropped “No Mediocre,” the first single from his yet-to-be-released ninth solo album, and he brought his star artist, Iggy, along for the ride.
The DJ Mustard-produced track opens with steel drums and a fitting bass line, before T.I. lays out his agenda. “Bad bitches only, ain’t no mediocre hoe,” he spits unapologetically on the hook.
Tip goes on spell out his list of desirables, which includes for his lady to be well-groomed and manicured. It’s all surface and pretty one-sided until Iggy hops on the second verse to balance things out and also declare herself “Grand Hustle’s First Lady.”
“I could change your life quick, stop playing with me/ And if you ain’t talkin’ money what you sayin’ to me,” Azalea rhymes.
