Executive producing Iggy’s The New Classic, Tip tells MTV News, ‘She ain’t half as good as she gonna be when I get through with her.’ You have to figure it takes a pretty special artist to get T.I excited. Enter Iggy Azalea.
Earlier this month, the Australian rapper revealed to MTV News that the Grand Hustle CEO is on tap to executive produce her major-label debut, The New Classic on Interscope. “I just recently got a call from a white girl from Australia, and she just expressed such extreme, enormous amounts of eagerness and wanting me to just spearhead and oversee her project,” T.I. told MTV News on Saturday in Atlanta.
Azalea’s excitement is understandable: What rap rookie wouldn’t want to work with Tip? But it’s Iggy’s fresh energy that has inspired the King of the South. “She crazy as a mother——er and that fits right in over here,” he said. “That’s just the kind of egos we need around us, so I’m looking forward to that.”
Iggy made waves last year with her Ignorant Art mixtape, including fan-favorite singles “My World,” “The Last Song” and the risqué “Pu—-. ” All of the digital attention I.A. garnered led to a deal with Interscope, which she signed at the top of the year. “T.I.’s gonna be helping me with it, kind of A&R’ing, kind of executive producing,” Azalea said. “In terms of writing the record, that’s not the part that really worries me — that’s easy. It’s finding the production and finding something cohesive that is right for the direction of the album.”
Well, just wait until T.I. gets to working with her. “She kick sh—,” he said. “She ain’t half as good as she gonna be when I get through with her though.”
I need her. Hopefully that album comes out over summer as promised.
On Feb. 7, 1987 the constellation Aquarius and its ruler Uranus created a special light. This light landed in a small town called Elva, Estonia, where a beautiful, exotic, creative and powerful vocalist Goddess was born. Her name is Kerli, the doll face girl who wanted to spread her wings throughout the world. A dream then led her to America where her song “Walking on Air” gave her golden wings.
Kerli is a believer of Angels, Fairies and Demons, and has her own unique style like no other. Her traits are so original, inventive and unpredictable that they have become her window to opportunity. Bringing light to her life, a fairy told her to draw 3 dots on her face as a promise to look with her heart, not with her eyes. These dots are called Moon Marks, which stand for Integrity, Love and Unity, or I.L.U.
