T.I. convinces Snoop Dogg to call truce with Iggy Azalea

Hip-hop veteran Snoop Dogg has issued an apology to rapper Iggy Azalea for poking fun at her appearance after her mentor T.I. stepped in to urge him to end their war of words.

Azalea first took issue with Snoop Dogg after he made light of the Fancy hitmaker's make-up free looks in a "mean" Instagram.com snap on Sunday (12Oct14), but her response only made the 42 year old step up his online attack and he continued to mock her in a series of further posts on Tuesday (14Oct14).

Azalea, who is dating Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Nick Young, fired back at the profanity-laden clip with a lengthy post on her blog, which she concluded by insisting, "ima (I will) be the bigger man in this situation and leave it be."

The heated dispute prompted Azalea's pal T.I. to intervene and he managed to convince Snoop Dogg to put an end to the feud and apologise.

Snoop shared the news with fans in a new Instagram video on Wednesday afternoon (15Oct14), and although it's clear who he's talking about, he does not mention Azalea by name.

In the post, he says, "Boys and girls, I just got off the phone with my homeboy Tip (T.I.), the king of Atlanta, and it's officially over.

"No more bad talk, I apologise. Yeah, I apologise, I'm sorry, I won't do it again."

Accepting the apology on Twitter.com, Azalea writes, "I appreciate the apology @snoopdogg... Let that be that people, time to focus on the positive things I've got going on. no time to dwell on the negative."
