Anonymous: why isn't it a problem when m.i.a raps? why is it ok to have chicano rap/asian rap/ etc? But as soon as white people try it you all lose your shit?


That’s so cute and simplistic. Did you work on this question all week or…? No one cares when white people try to rap. We care when they don’t represent their authentic selves or are plain untalented. We don’t care that Eminem is white. He’s not out her performing sonic blackface, despite being from the Detroit Metro Area. Yelawolf sounds like a southern rapper because… he’s a southern rapper. Homeboy is from Alabama. His voice is his. Hell, we didn’t even care about Bubba Sparxxx. Homeboy is from Georgia. Plus, Ms. New Booty is still a bop, so.. *shrugs*

Iggy literally sounds like something out of Malibu’s Most Wanted. Protip: that movie was not a documentary. This sheila is claiming she’s in the “murda bidness”. Homegirl grew up in Mulllumbimby, New South Wales, on a fucking farm. What the fuck was she murdering? Chickens? The hopes and dreams of her parents? What? You tell me. But she is flagrantly being dishonest and unauthentic. She sounds like all the mediocre parts of some of the premiere lady rappers throughout the years. She ain’t as cool in her delivery as Da Brat. She ain’t as raw and bold as Foxy or Trina. She ain’t as cute or skilled as Charli Baltimore. Iggy is what happens when generally mediocre white girls think they deserve to win and people who don’t know better let them. 

I couldn’t agree any more with this post. I have nothing against white people rapping and busting a rhyme - some a very talented. It’s safe to say that Eminem is one of the best rappers in the world and as much as I dislike Macklemore, he is also a lyrical genius; talking about his and a lot of the issues faced today. In saying that, fake shits like Iggy for example really gets under my skin. She’s fake, unoriginal and basically overrated who doesn’t even produce her own rhymes. All her lyrics are written for her and it’s amped up with auto tune and funky fresh beats. She doesn’t talk about the real issues, her own life and/or anything relevant, she won’t survive long in the game. It has nothing to do with her race, gender or her colour; it’s the fact that she is genuinely a bad rapper and only has one or two hits that will make her a big hype for the short run. There are plenty of bad black rappers also, but Iggy; is just disappointing. I needed to get that off my chest.
