Having the “song of the summer” is some sort of a blessing and a curse. While Iggy Azalea is out here rocking the charts with “Fancy” — and landing hella VMA nominations — she’s also got a few people questioning her talents. For example, those accusations that T.I. has been ghostwriting her music.
Well, someone actually decided to ask the Grand Hustle CEO if he’s ever stepped in to pen some verses for Iggy, and the answer was no.
“I mean, I ain’t no ghostwriter,” Tip said in an interview with Bijou Star TV. “Iggy got her own ideas and thoughts that she presents to the world her own way.”
“I couldn’t write a lot of the sh– she say,” he added. “I couldn’t put her thoughts into words as articulate as she does. She just has a different way of presenting herself and her art. Now, don’t get me wrong — everybody in the studio helps with hooks and certain things like that. That goes for me and any of the other top five rappers [and] performers. You want the best ideas.”
