T.I. has announced he's signed the much hyped Iggy Azalea to his Grand Hustle label, as well as Chipmunk and Trae Tha Truth.

"Everyone was like, you’re young, you’re 21, someone just needs to dive in at the deep end in America and just try and bridge the gap a little bit more between the cultures musically," says Chipmunk (or Chip to his friends) of his involvement with the label.

Meanwhile, T.I. expanded on how the first Iggy Azalea meeting wen't down: “Her exact words were, ‘It’s very smart of you to call me because I’m going to be smashing shit for quite some time now and no one will be able to breathe if you’re not on my team. So it’s good that you’ll be here, so you’ll have oxygen.”

Whether you like her music or not, that's pretty badass. [via Fact]
