Kreayshawn Slams Iggy Azalea As Will.I.Am Comes To Her Defense / #WhenTipTweets Takes Over Twitter


As Tweeters keep their eyes and ears open for Twitter group “Anonymous” to make good on their threats directed to rapstress Iggy Azalea, the onslaught of negative attention aimed at the rap diva sees no signs of slowing.

After her mentor T.I. took to the social media outlet to defend her from comments lent by rapper Q-Tip, followers lit into him via the trending topic #WhenTipTweets.  Fueled by a collection of memes implying the rapper is an “Uncle Tom” (amongst other names we’d rather not repeat), the hashtag has only gained momentum as the day has gone on.

Adding her own brand of fuel to the fire, fellow vanilla femcee Kreayshawn weighed in on the hot topic to lend Azalea some advice on “racism”.  See that below as well as ‘Scream & Shout’ hitmaker Will.I.Am, best known for his work with Black Eyed Peas-frontwoman/rapstress Fergie, shouts out his appreciation of Iggy’s contributions.

It’s all just one big ball of confusion and it awaits after the jump:

While most are tweet-watching to see if the “Anonymous” hacker threats against rap starlet Iggy Azalea will manifest into anything more, her mentor – rap mogul T.I. – comes to her aid again.

Indeed, after calming the bark of legendary rapper Snoop Dogg just weeks ago, now Tip is clapping back at rapper Q-Tip on behalf of Azalea after the ‘Breathe and Stop’ beau lent her a stinging lesson in hip hop history (see that here if you missed it).

In a lengthy Twitter lecture, Tip refutes some of Q-Tip’s claims about Azalea’s intent with hip hop, the fear of white people embezzling from Black culture, and more.  Tuck in below, read his rant, and tell us if you agree:

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!

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.”
