After teasing fans with a sneak peek over the weekend, rap newcomer Iggy Azalea and Grand Hustle head T.I. have unleashed their new "Murda Bizness" collaboration.

Tagged as Iggy's first official single off her debut album, the record premiered online Monday (March 26) evening.

For her official first single, buzzworthy rap upstart Iggy Azalea is killing the pride and hurting the feelings of her detractors and competition with "Murda Bizness," a slick, boastful, and downright bangin' introduction that features rapper T.I. cosigning the pretty rapstress' impending reign.

Recently, Grand Hustle affiliate DJ Drama talked to SOHH about Iggy's current buzz.

"I definitely think Iggy has a lot to prove as a new artist," Drama told SOHH. "I'm interested in her, I've seen some of her music videos as well as her music and I think there's definitely some stuff I like. I think it's going to be a very interesting year as far as what she's going to accomplish and what she'll be able to accomplish. I actually started paying attention to her last year. I think she has a lot of potential and she's a very nice person from my interaction with her. I think she has a great story behind her. I wish her the best and look forward to working with her. I think she definitely has the potential to make quality music so don't be surprised if she's on [my upcoming album] Quality Street Music." (SOHH)

A few weeks ago, Tip officially added Iggy to his growing Grand Hustle roster.

"Tip reached out just to meet me, to say hello, and I found a position for him, conveniently, where he could be used," Azalea explained. "And he was down with it; that's the truth." Affectionately referring to Azalea as "The Iggamonster," T.I. also added his recollection of their first conversation. "I think her exact words were: 'It's very smart of you to call me because I'm going to be smashing sh-- for quite some time now and no one will be able to breathe if they're not on my team. So it's good that you'll be here, so you'll have oxygen." In addition to working with Azalea and Trae, T.I. also added British rapper Chip (formerly known as Chipmunk) to Grand Hustle Records. It's set to be a big year for the Grand Hustle family. (RapFix)
