T.I. is speaking out and defending Iggy Azalea from the people who have qualms with the fact that she is a white rapper.
In an interview with HardKnock.tv, the Grand Hustle founder responded to critics by saying that Iggy should be judged for her work ethic and talent instead of her race or Australian nationality.
“It should be attributed to her work ethics, her artistic views … She has a vision for herself and this vision she will not compromise, you know, she has a certain idea of how to present herself, how to platform her art and she won’t compromise it so I think she should be kind of judged based on that rather than her creed, her nationality, what country she from… those are stereotypes,” T.I. told cameras. He followed by stating that putting people like Iggy in boxes genre like just pop or just hip hop is not beneficial to the music industry,”We trying to bring people together and you are trying to meticulously separate us.”
