T.I. Says In Regards To Her Critics, Iggy Azalea Needs To 'Suck This Up'
T.I. adresses Iggy Azalea's defense mechanisms
On a recent pit stop at Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on Monday (June 15) with wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris in tow, T.I. made it clear that Iggy Azalea needs to toughen up.
Since late last year, the Aussie rapper has been in pure defense mode, barking back at everyone who says anything negative about her. The "Fancy" artist has spewed out a slew of subliminals and shade to anyone that comes her way through Twitter and other forms of communication. T.I., however, thinks she should focus more on her craft and less on her critics. In a nutshell, after all, public scrutiny does come with the territory.
“At least she don’t do drugs and go to jail. So right now what we’re dealing with – I feel like with the amount of fame and reward that comes from it, you gotta kind of suck this up,” T.I. said.
And when asked if Iggy will ever redeem herself and make a comeback, this is what Tip had to offer: “As long as she is still passionate about making music, and as long as she still gives 100% to her fans and the people who come out to see her, then I think the answer to that is absolutely.”
Yet this is not the first time, however, T.I. has opened up about his Grand Hustle artist’s defensive tactics. In January, he told TMZ, “I think she should focus on what got her here, and that’s her music, her performing and continue to just present her talents to the world.”
