Iggy Azalea took to Twitter to respond to T.I. claiming she "switched up" on The Breakfast Club. The Australian rapper said that T.I. is taking too much credit for sparking her career and he was only involved in the making of 2014's "100."

"I don’t bring your ass up, NO ONE is asking about you," she said in the since-deleted series of tweets.

Please move on and speak about artist you are (hopfully) actually helping, and stop trying to bring me up for relevance.
I don’t bring your ass up, NO ONE is asking about you.
I’m tryna be nice because I genuinely have better and more interesting things happening...
The only song you ever were a part of making was “100”
Thankyou for that, but you were NOT a part of the creative OR executive process on that album.
Which is why I’ve always taken issue with you trying to approximate yourself with it’s success.
Let’s talk about 2017 when you randomly walked into my session at paramount and tried to make a case as to way I should “come back to hustle gang” please stop lying!
And move on.
I had to block your number the next day and change where I was recording.
He has NEVER helped me write a song other than 100.
Check the writing credits.
I don’t have ghost writers, but do I write with multiple people on songs especially big pop-leaning ones? Yes. I’ve never claimed otherwise.
Look at the pub credits. It’s public information.
The crazy part is; he really believes it. I don’t understand how you could think you were responsible for something you never even heard until it was mixed and mastered

During his appearance on the Breakfast Club, T.I. claimed that Iggy was "arrogant" with her approach to constructive criticism. He also claimed that she neglected to cater to her black fans once she found pop success.

"I feel like she was meant to be great," Tip said. "As far as I'm concerned, I feel like when she found out white people liked her and she didn't really need black people to like her anymore, she switched up, started acting different, made moves that I wasn't proud of, that kind of placed my reputation in the line of fire. And she was very arrogant about it." He also suggested that Iggy had ghostwriters that helped her create her "dope" raps.

T.I. is named as an executive producer on her debut album, The New Classic. He announced that he was no longer doing business with Azalea in 2015.
