Every time Iggy Azalea catches wind that someone has thrown shade her way, she gives them a earful through 140 characters at a time. Her mentor T.I feels that she needs to give Twitter a rest and focus on the music.
"I think she should focus on what got her here," the Grand Hustle boss told a TMZ cameraman. "It's just like asking Tom Brady if he should be commenting on defalte-gate. He should be worried about the big game on Sunday, correct?"
Iggy has taken to Twitter to respond to criticism and sly comments from Snoop Dogg, Jill Scott and Eve, Hot 97's Ebro Darden, Azealia Banks, Tyler the Creator, Rah Digga and Q-Tip, who gave her a lecture about hip-hop through a series of tweets.

Known for a multitude of sketches including his classic impersonations of Stevie Wonder, Gumby, Buckwheat and more, it's been over 30 years since legendary comedian Eddie Murphy last graced the stage of Saturday Night Live, leaving the show in 1984 after finding mainstream success with franchises like Beverly Hills Cop and 48 Hours.
Now he's announced that he will indeed return for the long running show's upcoming 40th anniversary special, though NBC has declined to reveal exactly how he will participate. Despite rumors of a potential rift Murphy denies the claims, explaining that the long absence was simply a matter of timing.
Said Murphy, "It's just timing. It never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it."
It looks as if they'll be no meeting at the altar for Jagged Edge member Kyle Norman, who was arrested on Thursday morning in relation to an alleged assault on his fiance in which he's accused of attempting to shove her engagement ring down her throat. After police responded to calls of a domestic altercation, the unidentified woman was taken to the Atlanta Medical Center with visible welts, a large knot on her forehead, a cut to her face and a blood clot within her right eye.
According to authorities, Norman told officers that "he was upset about his dad having cancer and that's the reason he got so mad at his fiancee." He's currently being held at the Fulton County Jail on a charge of aggravated assault and will not be released until after he faces a judge on Friday (January 30) morning.
Norman rose to fame in the 90s with tracks like "Let's Get Married," "Promise," "Where The Party At" and more.

playing out for Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda has become even more serious. XXL reports the New York prosecution added 32 more charges onto the original indictment for Shmurda and his fellow defendants. The 20-year-old Epic Records artist was arrested in December for murder, assault, narcotics, and weapons possession – all conspiracy charges.
Shmurda entered a not guilty plea at the Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday. He was present in the courtroom with his new attorney Kenneth Montgomery. The "Hot N***a" performer's previous lawyer, Howard Greenberg, is no longer representing him.
Greenberg had been the public face for Shmurda. He recently told Revolt a Brooklyn gun charge against Shmurda was to be dropped. It turns out that is not the case as the Brooklyn District Attorney's office is reportedly still pursuing the June 2014 offense.
Shmurda's current legal representation is seeking a reduction in the $2 million bail that has been set for the rapper. Montgomery requested a special bail hearing for February 2, but the judge denied the request.
The new charges brought against the defendants were the result of the arrest at Manhattan's Quad Studios on December 17. The new counts include second degree criminal possession of a weapon, third degree criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal possession of a firearm.
The next court date for Shmurda and the other indicted members of his GS9 crew is set for April 22.
