Iggy Azalea responds to her diss on Macklemore’s White Privilege II

Iggy Azalea responds to her diss on Macklemore's White Privilege IIIggy Azalea has taken aim at fellow rapper Macklemore after he called out the Australian and accused her of cultural appropriation in the lyrics of a new song.

Macklemore also mentioned Miley Cyrus and the late Elvis Presley as artists who have capitalised on the popularity of black music on new Macklemore & Ryan Lewis track, White Privilege II.

“You’ve exploited and stolen the music, the moment/The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toy with/The culture was never yours to make better,” he spits in the second verse, before continuing, “You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea/Fake and so plastic, you’ve heisted the magic/You’ve taken the drums and the accent you rapped in/You’re branded ‘hip-hop,’ it’s so fascist and backwards.”

Iggy, who has previously had to defend her love of rap against attacks from Snoop Dogg and Azealia Banks, hasn’t taken the song mention well, and she took to Twitter.com on Friday 22nd Jan,16 to fire back.

Responding to a fan’s (Iggy’s Bae) tweet, the “AZILLION” rapper tweeted: “He shouldnt (sic) have spent the last 3 yrs (years) having friendly convos (conversations) and taking pictures together at events etc if those were his feelings.”

Macklemore is yet to respond to Iggy’s comment but Talib Kweli was charged up on his timeline Friday (Jan. 22) after Iggy Azalea’s response to the perceived diss track. He jumps to Macklemore’s side and jabs Iggy in many tweets starting with this very diss: “The fact @iggyazalea thinks Macklemore song was a diss to her, instead of actually listening, is proof of her privilege. Fuck Iggy Azalea.”

AND THEN THIS CAME ALONG… Talib claims Iggy has disrespected hip hop culture many times and it’s time for her to dance to the other side of the riddim.

Iggy who was rather cool on twitter even though Talib felt she was acting up gave up some pills along their chat, defending her emotions.

White Privilege II, which features poet/singer Jamila Woods, is the follow up to Macklemore’s solo 2005 track White Privilege, and is due to appear on the hip-hop duo’s new album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made.
