Iggy Azalea @ SOB's
"I wasn't dropped by Interscope," Iggy told XXL moments after her performance in front of a sold-out crowd at SOBs in New York City on Thursday night (May 17). "I'm still managed by [Interscope], but when T.I. came on board and it became a Grand Hustle thing. We were working on restructuring and we worked down to the final deal. There's things that change when other people get involved. For me, I choose my involvement with Tip because that's my family over other things, so I'm thankful that I have him and he can kinda get me out of that situation; now it's just strictly Grand Hustle."
Her statement was corroborated by Interscope's Vice President of Publicity, Yvette Gayle, who told XXL that despite the news of Iggy's alleged deal in January, that Azalea never officially signed on with the imprint.
"Iggy decided not to sign with Interscope, but she is still managed by Interscope Management," Gayle explained in a statement sent to XXL.
Australian rapper Iggy Azalea stopped in NYC to play a sold out show at SOB's on Thursday (5/17) before continuing on to play Bamboozle in NJ.
