Iggy Azalea Says T.I. Will Executive Produce Her Debut Album 'The New Classic' [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

With the ink barely dry on her new contract with Interscope Records, Iggy Azalea is already having to make big decisions about her debut album, The New ClassicT.I. has reached out to the Australian rapper to see if he can executive produce the project.

 

"T.I.'s gonna be helping me with it, kind of A&R-ing, kind of executive producing," Azalea told MTV. "He called me up like, 'Please?' and I was like, 'Definitely. You're Tip; I love you, of course.' So he's gonna be helping me out. Just reaching out to people and helping me find production and pointing me in the direction of things that I might like. We're going to start on that next week."

 

It's obviously a big decision for Iggy. Her album will be the first time a lot of hip hop fans will hear her music even though she has been gaining national attention from her mixtape, Ignorant Art.

 

She and Tip will begin work on the project very soon.

 

"We'll probably start next week," she said. "I'll probably fly out to Atlanta and we'll do it there because he's weird with traveling and stuff. Hopefully that will be really dynamic and help speed things along. In terms of writing the record, that's not the part that really worries me; that's easy, It's finding the production and finding something cohesive that's right for the direction of the album. It could happen next week or I might go until the end of February and not find it. You just never know when you're gonna have that magic."


The New Classic is due out in June.

Basically y'all hate and then me, Interscope and T.I. think that Iggy is a one off. Well, let's hope she stays grounded once she's on top. She left her homeland to do music, she did what she should have to fit in and learnt from the ground. I respect that. I wich her well...

This is a good look for T.I. for real. This girl can spit. She's way better than the other white girls out. And Nikki will get a run for her money. Smart move by the King.

Yeah I said he's crap. That fool has one style....garbage. Anyone that believes anything that dude says is just illiterate. He weighs 89 pounds. how is he gonna do any of the thug sh!t he claims on his albums. You know he was gobbling nuts in the joint like it was a full time job. You cats need to stop believing all of the fake rappers out there.
