Iggy Azalea, pop star disguised as a female rapper. In an attempt to mirror Lil Wayne's success with Nicki Minaj, T.I. felt his street credibility will allow him to fast forward the process of success by using a white woman.
The Hip Hop industry by no doubt has it flaws, but one thing has been forever prevalent in this industry and that is opinions. Wise man once said "opinions are like assholes, everyone has one". In hiphop, something Iggy Azalea has yet to learn or overcome, you are not simply judged on your lyrics and flow. For this I give her a Charlamagne Da God Hee-Haw Hee-Haw.
Nicki Minaj, prior to any album release party, any award, any barbz, ass shots, or being the apple of every man's eye, she was a rapper from South Side, Queens. Off the back, you associated South Side with struggle and knowing you had to have a backbone to just even walk down Guy R. Brewer let alone live. Secondly, she was co-signed by what hiphop fans refer to as a "real nigga" in Big Fendi. I prefer to say a gentleman who earned respect through alleged street dealings, but affirmed music business. Getting a cosign from that man is like convincing 50 Cent "Power" can't hold a flame to Empire as long as Taraji Henson Cookies are a weekly promise. Lastly, Nicki Minaj supports upcoming talent. Regardless of the background business dealings, she has songs with unheralded talent even propelling Rae Sremmurd to Billboard hitmakers.
Iggy, what the hell have you done? Your video is a spin-off the concept of little known Stephanie J of Jamaica "Tight Up Skirt". The lyrics arent saying nothing, and you failed to do the most critical thing every hiphop artist must do, almost like entering the buildings on Rikers Island, STATE YOUR MUTHAFUCKIN NAME. Im not saying the consistent spelling of it, but the meaning of your character. T.I. was the rubberband man. We believed him. His hometown supported this fact. Nicki is a bad bitch, the hood believed her by showing up to her video shoots, poppin wheelies on Foch, Lil Kim certified by Brooklyn, but you are about what?
Without Wikipedia, can anyone state where she is from in Australia? She wondered why Eminem got respect. Eminem had people in New York screaming 213 and then dissed those who repped it and sold 10 million albums in the process. He rapped about his dislikes of homosexuality, vicodin, his moms, his girlfriend, his love of his daughter, and we loved him. We loved him because he rapped like a kid without shit, whereas your first song talks about how fancy you are. Bitch, did you even recoup yet?
I wrote this partly as a pure dislike of her bland poppy music which causes more talented female artist like this one from Brooklyn, she a AG type, rapping in front of Boys and Girls HS. I mean she was nice and hopefully I can find her again. She prevents females like ItsYaGirlNicolette because now the industry is rushing to get their own white queen of hip hop instead of the Ebony Goddess that should forever hold the throne. Iggy, go to a real hip hop station, I am.not talking Hot97, I mean like DaMatrixStudios or K100 or 982 The Beat where you can be grilled with no filter.
Some of this is fact, some is opinions, all are my own. What are your thoughts? Email at the top of page.
Hot artist like in the videos are ignored due to a struggle to keep up with fabricated industry demands.
If there is news out there believe the scoop will be here.
