Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea was one of several topics discussed during T.I.’s interview with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning, earlier this week.

The Atlanta, Georgia wordsmith first confirmed that he is still working with Iggy. He later defended her, stating that it can be difficult to be the new kid in music, be the butt of jokes, and the source of misdirected aggression, all at the same time.

T.I. then went on to explain that Iggy’s arrival in music came at a time when the country was looking for somewhere to place their pent-up aggression.

“Sure,” T.I. said when asked if he’s still working with Iggy Azalea. “It took a bit of a rest stop. Personally, nah…The thing is, in her defense, she had a lot thrown at her at one time. Any human being anywhere gonna have a hard time…The thing is it’s very difficult to be the new kid and to be the butt of the jokes and to be just directed with all the direction of the negativity. It came at a time where culturally this nation, which she’s not from here, we were actually looking for a source for somewhere to place our pent-up aggression. And they just kinda got it for no reason…In some cases, it was the easiest place to put some pent-up aggression.”

The Hustle Gang helmsman also discussed his newly-released Da’ Nic EP. He revealed that the idea to release the EP came only days before its September 11 release.

“The thought to put it out came September 2,” he said. “And it came out September 11. I mean, I been had music. I just been sitting around waiting to see what I’mma do. I been saying I’mma put something out and I just hadn’t done it. I’m really behind schedule with the timeline in my mind. I’m a little behind schedule, so I was frustrated with myself. I just said ‘Man, stop sitting on this dope [music].’”
