It can't be easy to watch one of your signees in a public feud with a longtime friend and collaborator -- but if anyone knows how to handle a situation like that with grace, it's T.I.
Last week, the Internet watched as Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea went back-and-forth with some nasty jabs on both Twitter and Instagram, until one phone call finally put it all to an end.
Snoop apologized in an Instagram post, where he explained that he and Tip had talked things out. The Grand Hustle CEO told MTV News that it was a very respectful exchange: "I didn't make Snoop do anything," he emphasized.
"I stepped in when it became a public topic of discussion," T.I. explained. "When it stopped being between two people and it was being observed by the world, and it was almost like people were tuning in just to see what was happening next."
"Me and Snoop have a long-standing personal and professional relationship," he continued. "I have a huge amount of admiration, love and respect for him and for what he's done for the game -- for people like me to be able to do what we do -- and when I called him it was a very, very, very cordial, respectful [conversation]."
"He immediately said he knew what I was calling about and just assured me [that it was] nothing to even worry about. It's over with. And we started talking about something else immediately." Hear T.I. explain the full story in the video above.
Tip's latest album, Paperwork, is in stores today.
