Rap tycoon Tip "T.I." Harris is still trying to make rapper Iggy Azalea happen. The 23-year-old Australian born model embarked on a rap career in 2011 when her independent tracks "Pussy" and "Two Times" were released online. She was signed to Grand Hustle Records by T.I., whose responsibility it was to give Iggy street cred. But one flop single after another has not endeared Iggy to the streets. She once dated Metrosexual rapper A$AP Rocky, and is now reportedly dating LA Lakers star Nick Young, who dumped his baby mother for her.

Before dropping the track Jeezy took to his Twitter page to denounce Def Jam recording execs for not doing enough to promote his music. He even threatened to leak his own album early.
