T.I. Denies Writing Iggy Azalea's Raps

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea seemed to come out of nowhere this summer with two chart-topping hits in "Problem" and "Fancy."

Iggy's rapid ascent has caused onlookers to cry foul, understandably confused with the way Azalea went from virtual unknown to hottest rapper in the game seemingly overnight.

Some artists, such as Nicki Minaj, have claimed that Iggy's success is evidence of racism within the recording industry.

Nicki and several others in the world of hip hop have gone so far as to suggest that Iggy doesn't write her own rhymes. Some have even taken the accusation a step further, claiming that they know the identity of the ghostwriter behind Iggy's hits:

Iggy provided a guest verse on "No Mediocre," a track from the rap veteran T.I.'s ninth studio album, and it's been rumored that their collaboration didn't end there. 

Recently, T.I. addressed rumors that he's the lyrical genius behind Iggy's meteoric rise:

"I ain't no ghostwriter," Tip said in an interview this week. "Iggy got her own ideas and her own ideas and thoughts that she presents to the world in her own way. I couldn't write a lot of the sh-t that she say. I couldn't put her thoughts into words.

Sounds pretty convincing, but then he backpedals a bit, adding:

"Don't get me wrong, everybody in the studio helps with hooks and things like that...If Iggy can have a mentor, then I guess I'm the closest thing to it."

Frankly, we have no idea if Iggy writes her own lyrics or not, but there's gotta be something fraudulent about an Australian girl who raps with the world's thickest ghetto accent.

Never heard of this person, but I got curious and took a look at the lyrics to "Fancy". Iggy, if you're reading this, I'm not much of a songwriter, actually not a songwriter at all, but if you're interested in collaborating with me, I can write lyrics much better than this for $100 a song. I can write about 20 a day, maybe a hundred on my days off work. In fact, I'm not much of a programmer either but I bet I can write a program that can generate song lyrics comparable to "Fancy". Cost is $100.

As a artist myself a lot of music is written by other people from singers to rappers to whom ever it is a lot of people sell their music and get fat pay checks from it so if she didn't write her music so what she made it a hit and doing well with it and if she would let other people write for her maybe she would be number one cause some the songs they try to write all sound the same she just mad and it's not about color it's wht sells and she should know this most of her boss music is wht he redoing from old songs we heard when they first started out and it is lame to me but new to the world tell nick to get her a ghost

A rapper is someone who can't sing. So, go away Ziggy. You are just feeding the morons who go for this drivel.

Ha ha..hip hop is poetry set to music. Not all that different from the poets you learned about in school (Shakespeare). Additionally, it is THE most influential music form in the world today.
