Nowhere in Nicki Minaj’s “when you hear Nicki Minaj rap, Nicki Minaj wrote it” BET Awards acceptance speech did Onika mention Iggy Azalea’s name, but who else raps like Diamond of Crime Mob but speaks like Rebel Wilson?
Detroit Hot 107.5′s Bijou Star caught up with Iggy’s mentor to set the ghostwriting rumors straight. T.I. says the “Fancy” rapper’s words and thoughts are all her own, but everybody in the studio helps.
“I mean, I ain’t no ghostwriter. Iggy got her own ideas and thoughts that she presents to the world her own way, man. I couldn’t write a lot of the shit she say. I couldn’t put her thoughts into words as articulate as she does. She just has a different way of presenting herself and her art. Now, don’t get me wrong… everybody in the studio helps with hooks and certain things like that. That goes for me and any of the other top five rappers. Everybody. It could be a producer, a homebody…you want the best ideas. If Iggy can have a mentor than I guess I’m the closest thing to it.”
That settles that.
