ti iggy azalea that grape juice 2014 900 600x303 T.I. Inks Lucrative New Publishing Deal / Joins Iggy Azalea At Sony ATV

His latest studio album may be on course to move an unfortunate 65,000 units next week, but we doubt that’ll be enough to rain on T.I‘s hit-making parade.

Partly responsible for the success of Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines‘ (on which he appears as a featured act), the rapper has now inked a publishing deal with Sony ATV, heading over to the publishing company after his ‘Fancy’ protege Iggy Azalea did the same earlier this year!

With the state of race relations being a hot topic in the US (see: Mike Brown), the arrival of rapper T.I.‘s new song ‘New National Anthem’ is particularly timely.

The haunting track, which features Skylar Grey, spotlights the Hip-Hop star’s take on social injustice in America.

ATL bred T.I.P opens the song by stressing that he doesn’t think radio will play it, but he delivers a compelling cut that is certainly worth a listen.

T.I. Denies Iggy Azalea Ghostwriter Claims

  iggy that grape juice 2014 45 600x398 T.I. Denies Iggy Azalea Ghostwriter Claims

Though little can be done to throw her single-selling abilities into disrepute, there’s been some effort to poke serious holes into Iggy Azalea‘s credibility as artist by those unimpressed by what she brings to Pop’s table.

Not helped by misinformed journalists hoping to present her as Hip Hop’s fastest rising star, Azalea has found herself tasked with facing the following three criticisms since her debut in 2011.

The first, being her adoption of an Ebonic-kissed Southern American accent despite hailing from New South Wales.

The second, being that industry connections-and not her own crossover appeal- is to thank for her meteoric rise on Top 40 and Rhythmic radio.

The last? That she employs ghostwriters to pen her material for her.

Now, despite being named as one of the writers on her smash hit single ‘Fancy’, her mentor T.I. has slammed the last of the three, revealing that the Rapper “has her own ideas.”

Azealia Banks On T.I: “Your Kids Live Cheque To Cheque Because You Can’t Stay Out Of Jail”

azealia banks that grape juice 401 Azealia Banks On T.I: Your Kids Live Cheque To Cheque Because You Cant Stay Out Of Jail

Seemingly unafraid of his threat to “end” her should she continue, Azealia Banks has taken fresh aim at the rapper T.I’s family today, slamming his parenting skills following their war of words yesterday.

This time, after learning that the rapper had threatened to “chew your neck off your throat” if she continued to weigh in on his loved ones, she questioned his credentials as a responsible father…citing his well publicised run-ins with the law as her grounds for doing so?

Does engaging in alleged criminal activity make one a bad parent?

Azealia’s answer below…

Barks & Bytes: Do Azealia Banks’ Social Media Beefs Help Or Hurt Her?

azealia banks TGJ Barks & Bytes:  Do Azealia Banks Social Media Beefs Help Or Hurt Her?

Oh, Azealia Banks.  Hair is certainly the nicest thing the ‘Yung Rapunxel’ has let down since her eye-popping debut onto the rap scene.

In addition to letting down fans with innumerable pushbacks of her debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste,’ the fiery femcee has (not so gently) let down any Twitter user who’d dare cross her path.

Oft-attributed with dispensing unforgiving and, at times, well crafted shade, the ‘ATM Jam’ maestra has taken to Twitter on many occasion to light into many-a-well known pop culture figure from Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton to Pharrell Williams and now T.I.

Love her or hate her, one thing you cannot deny is Banks’ ability to cash in on and court public attention.  With discussions of her host of eccentric yet lukewarm-received singles/videos at a minimum, news that incites ridicule from nemeses, haters, and spectators alike, Banks – the cultural figure at large – still remains a talking point.

So, it begs the question:  is Azealia Banks winning?
