Iggy Azalea Denies ‘Grand Hustle’ Exit

Published: Tuesday 12th Feb 2013 by David

She’s talented, beautiful and boasts more unique selling points than all of her contemporaries combined, and now- after her explosive arrival two years- Iggy Azalea readies the release of her debut LP this year.

A fact that all of her fans- including us- are excited by, the project’s release has found itself belaboured with some criticism- centered in what some might call a questionable business move by Iggy. A move, which came in the form of her signing to T.I’s fruitless ‘Grand Hustle‘.

However, following murmurs that she had parted ways with the music group, the Rapper has set the record straight via her personal Twitter page.

Her words below…



Just when we were getting our hopes up.

For, in keeping it 100, it’s safe to say Iggy’s dealings with ‘Hustle’ have done nothing to showcase her groundbreaking talent and sound in the way they need to be.

Think about it. While 2012 saw Interscope keep Azealia‘s buzz alive via countless videos and a content led campaign, Iggy’s biggest breaks came not from her own ‘Grand Hustle’ but from rival music groups, these being Cash Money (Tyga‘s ‘Closer To My Dreams Tour‘) and Roc Nation (Rita Ora‘s ‘Radioactive Tour‘).

Indeed, while we’re in no way downplaying the little success the group has had, it is worth noting that it has yet to spawn any major acts on its own merit, with B.O.B‘s chart reign spearheaded by Atlantic and not ‘The King’.

A fact, the UK’s Chip will be all too aware of considering his deal with ‘Hustle’ did all of nothing for his ‘London Boy’ EP.

As admirers of her work, we hope Iggy inks a deal with a label with the financial means and marketing know how to present her as a premium entertainer, worthy of going toe to toe with even the strongest of her Pop counterparts.

    She will be big, she said she signed with a major anyway so

    I’m sorry, I don’t get the big deal about this girl(or Azealia Banks, either, for that matter). Maybe it’s because I’m not into rap music. But to me, Iggy’s persona comes across as incredibly contrived and fake. I’ve listened to some of her songs and I can’t hear what other people are apparently hearing as far as talent goes. *shrugs*

    She got swag for an australian chick but she kinda corny. But anyways,…..

    who cares? she has yet to prove herself as a capable lyricist.

    Call me when she learns to write a song people can actually enjoy. Why are you acting ratchet when you come from the outbacks of Australia.

    I like her but why she got with Ti is beyond me. He can’t even help his own career let alone hers.

  11. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare February 12, 2013

    I LOVE her as a model. The music….

  12. Cream February 12, 2013

    So nobody go talk about that pic?

    I say this a lot but why use a fake accent? How will she make it as Malibu’s most wanted the female version ? Ti must like the head game.

    All you b****** is mad! Iggy will blow up rather you like it or not and you all will be eating your words!!!

  15. ladylady February 12, 2013

    CAN’T WAIT for her to drop her official LP. Come on Iggy…. give it to us!

  16. taps February 12, 2013

    T.I is not the reason for her stagnant growth..its her own fault..she wants to be a rapper so bad yet EDM is clearly her path. If you remove her from Hustle gang she will just become another Azealia Banks..

  17. PRINCE MACHIAVEL February 12, 2013

    Iggy! Love The B**** And Her Iconic Flip Hair llol!!
