T.I. Signs Chip & Iggy Azalea To Grand Hustle

T.I. joins Chip and Iggy Azalea for an interview to speak on their addition to the Grand Hustle roster.

After announcing that T.I. signed Trae The Truth to Grand Hustle, Tip also confirmed that he has added Chip and Iggy Azalea to his team. The self-proclaimed King of the South recently spoke alongside Iggy and Chip (formerly known as Chipmunk) during an interview with MTV to explain the signings. 

Chip is a newcomer to the States but has already garnered years of acclaim in the United Kingdom. As he mentioned in the interview, he felt it was time to make a transition and cross the Atlantic.

"I'm 21 now," Chip explained in the video interview with Tip sitting beside him. "I'm pretty much, I wouldn't say as big as I can be in the UK, but we kind of hit a glass ceiling. I got signed when I was 17. I had a platinum album, previous number one singles, Top 10 hits, countless Top 10 features. The biggest hit I had in the UK was a song called "Champion" featuring Chris Brown. It's actually the theme song on Madden 12." 

According to Chip, his transition isn't only about his own work and growth. Chip said he feels he can bridge the gap between the UK and the United States. 

"It got to a point where people in the UK felt like if there was someone over there that could help bridge the gap between the cultures in the Urban music over here and in the UK, it's me," he explained. "Tip was rockin' with what I was doing and we just linked up." 

Iggy Azalea's singing to Grand Hustle comes after news that T.I. would be executive producing her upcoming debut album, The New Classic.

    Im live in London, chipmunk is whack, he makes songs for lil school girls. theres a lot of spitters in the UK that are soooo much better then him but the fact is that being a talented rapper doesnt make you sell records. T.I is probably looking for people that will make money and i reckon chipmunk can be one of his lil cash cows. just pisses me off that chipmunk will get recognised before people like Klashnekoff, Jehst, Mystro, Durrty Goodz, Ransom Badbonez, Skinnyman.....trust me this list is endless.

    Ooooh chipmunk??? I thought Chip as in some random new rapper. smh This guy is complete trash and looks like he'd break if you shook his hand. Why can't they sign GOOD UK talent. Rappers these days are always talking about that the game ain't the same, rappers have gone bad BLAH BLAH BLAH and yet they co-sign the same BS they're talking about. Kanye and Nas are best examples.

      lol hit right on the head look at dat roster

    • TBD1983

      Well it depends on the commercial appeal of each other on that roster. T.I. Iggy, Chip, B.O.B., OMG have the mainstream fans. Dro,P$C,Killer Mike, Trae, 8BALL & MJG , Shun Hendrix have the streets. Ricco & Mitchelle'l got the ladies. They balance the musical levels at Grand Hustle very well. It just all about have the right single that listeners will gravitate to and distribution from one of the four major labels to promote , marketing and push the record/video out to different outlets. I hope this answers your question
