According to Iggy Azalea, T.I. is going to be executive producing and A&R’ing her upcoming debut album, The New Classic. The 21-year old Aussie cutie recently sat down with MTV News and confessed that T.I. actually reached out to her for the job.
“He called me up and was like, ‘Please.’ And I was like, ‘Definitely. You’re Tip. I love you, of course.’ So he’s gonna be kinda helping me out, like just kinda reaching out to people and helping me find production and pointing me in the direction of things that I might like.”
They plan to get in the studio next week.
“We’re gonna start on that next week together. I’ll probably fly out to Atlanta and we’ll do it in between there because he’s weird with traveling and stuff. I understand. We’re in touch with each other. I have legal issues, he has legal issues. I get it. So hopefully that will be really dynamic and it’ll help speed things along.”
Iggy is hoping for a summer release for her debut, The New Classic.
“Hopefully if all goes to plan, my album will be out in June and I’ll have it recorded by the end of the month.”
I’m loving the new crop of female MCs taking music by storm. Hopefully their music lives up to the hype!
