‘When TI Tweets’ exposes T.I. and Iggy’s relationship

When TI Tweets 1

“When TI Tweets” became a popular hashtag this past week as celebrities traded their opinions on Iggy Azalea‘s misappropriation of hip-hop. Sparked by rapper Azealia Banks at the beginning of Azalea’s mainstream career, tension has been brewing between T.I. and many of his industry peers who look at hip-hop as more than a way to make ends meet, as he promotes an artist who appears disingenuous to the culture.

In a year where international protests erupted after Mike Brown and Eric Garner were denied justice in their deaths, and Black entertainment closely mimics old minstrel shows, it’s no surprise to see people air out their frustrations on Twitter as T.I. defends Azalea for her insensitivity towards her place in hip-hop. Take a look at a few memes from #WhenTITweets as well as a couple of the racist tweets dug up from Iggy Azalea’s past.
