T.I. Wants Iggy Azalea to Be Easy on the Tweets

Tip thinks his protégé needs to focus on music and not Twitter beefs.

After supporting Iggy Azalea's career and trying to lead her in the right direction, T.I. seems to have had enough of the femcee discussing every peak and valley of her professional life on Twitter.
Her most recent Twitter rant was directed towards the shoe company Steve Madden. The "Fancy" rapper did a collaboration with them and she was less than pleased with the photos for the campaign. She tweeted and then deleted her frustration.
"Everything in the collection is supposed to be mutually approved. But Steve [M]adden did the most disgusting photo shoot ever and never even told me about it, I'm just now seeing it as it's uploaded on some random tumblr page and [I am] livid," she tweeted.
The tweets didn't end there and she continued to rant about the collab being "tainted." And as usual, she rubbed some folks the wrong way, but one of the people was her mentor, Tip, who generally defends her.

"I think she should focus on what got her here. That's her music, her performing, and continue to just present her talents to the world," he told TMZ when asked if Iggy should have aired out her issues with the shoe brand. 
Hopefully the Grammy-nominated Azalea takes heed to any and all of the advice that T.I. is giving her since he's been in the game a minute. But, then again, she seems to be steering her own car on her own path these days, so only time will tell if she takes his stance to heart.
