Iggy Azalea seems to find herself at the center of controversy more often than not.
Friday (January 22)rapper, Macklemore released his record “White Privilege II”, off his upcoming album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made. The track is the sequel to his record “White Privilege” from his The Language Of My World album and in the nearly nine minute song he explores the the racial injustice happening in America, Black Lives Matter and more.
At one point, Macklemore suggests artists like Miley Cyrus, Elvis and Iggy Azalea have “exploited and stolen the music, the moment/ The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toy with/ The culture was never yours to make better.”
After being questioned by a fan on Twitter about her feelings on Macklemore’s lyrics, Iggy shot back saying “He shouldn’t have spent the last 3 yrs having friendly convos and taking pictures together at events etc if those were his feelings.”
Now, Talib Kweli is chiming in on the conversation around the so-called “diss” saying Iggy Azalea misinterpreted the lyrics, which backs everything Macklemore was talking about.
In a heated Twitter rant, Talib Kweli slams Azalea saying, “The fact @iggyazalea thinks Macklemore song was a diss to her, instead of actually listening, is proof of her privilege,” adding “F**k Iggy Azalea.”
He went on to reveal that he was down for the Australian born rapper in the beginning but this was his last straw. He wrote;
“True story. I actually rooted for Iggy when she first came out. But she’s disrespected hip hop culture one too many times.”
