The new Australian female rapper Iggy Azalea, who recently signed with Interscope Records, announced that T.I. will be the executive producer of her debut album “The New Classic.”
“T.I.’s gonna be helping me with it, kind of A&R-ing, kind of executive producing,” she said. “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…I’ll probably fly out to Atlanta and we’ll do it there because he’s weird with traveling and stuff. I understand. See we’re in touch with each other. I have legal issues [with immigration]; he has legal issues. I get it.”
Iggy’s debut album is scheduled to drop sometime in June if everything goes as planned.
“In terms of writing the record, that’s not the part that really worries me; that’s easy,” she said. “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…If all goes to plan, my album will be out in June and I’ll have it recorded by the end of the month.”
