Iggy Azalea, 24, is still soaking up the tremendous success of her and Ariana Grande‘s mega-hit, “Problem,” but it looks like she’s already got another potentially huge collaboration on the horizon. T.I., 33, revealed in a new interview that Lil’ Kim, 40, is super interested in working with the “Fancy” singer — and that’s not all! T.I. also said that Iggy is “eager” to spit some rhymes with another lady rapper — find out who after the jump!
Iggy Azalea’s Song With Lil’ Kim: T.I. Reveals Singer’s Next Collaboration
One of the hottest female rappers of the ’90s joining forces with one of the hottest female rappers of today? Yes, please!
T.I. spilled the tea about the potential collaboration during a new interview with New York radio station Hot 97, saying, “I got a call from Kim. She said it’s time to find that record to get [an Iggy collaboration] done.”
It sounds like it’s only a matter of time before Lil’ Kim and Iggy record a sure-to-be-a-hit song together! And Kim might not be the only female rapper Iggy is set to team up with. T.I. said she would also be “eager” to work with former Terror Squad member Remy Ma.
“Yeah, she’s a fan of the sport,” he said when asked about a possible Remy/Iggy collaboration. “I believe she’s gonna be eager to show support … She with the nonsense.”
T.I. Defends Iggy Azalea
After Nicki Minaj, 31, seemingly dissed Iggy at the BET Awards on June 29 for not writing her own music, T.I. was quick to come to Iggy’s defense, promising that, despite rumors to the contrary, he is not her ghostwriter.
“I couldnt write a lot of the s–t she say,” T.I. said during an interview with Detroit’s Hot 107.5. “I couldn’t put her thoughts into words as articulate as she does. She just has a different way of presenting herself and her art.”
He did admit, however, that Iggy and other artists do get help from studio pros. “Now, don’t get me wrong, everybody in the studio helps with hooks and certain things like that,” he added. “That goes for me and any of the other top five rappers [and] performers.”
