So you took a tweet about racism in the real world and turned it into something as trivial as a feud between two women. This is misogynistic, racial trash and if you fall for this junk then please take a good hard look at yourself because, god have mercy, you make the world bleed.

All the Time I thought Iggy was Da Brat. Damn she copy her style down to the voice. For you young people that don’t remember you should take a listen.

Iggy is popular right now because she sounds like a black female rapper. If she were a black female rapper, there would be nothing about her that stands out. It seems that all of her music is starting to sound the the same. When it come to Iggy and Niki, it’s gimmick versus talent and innovation. Niki will be around for a long time.

Nicki jst spoke pure truth, it’s like how that boy Ryan Lewis is getting all the awards and MTV naming the best rapper in 25 years when he clearly sucks and has nothing on most black lyricists like Immortal Technique and Kendrick Lamar to name a few bt due to the colour of his skin in ths white dominated music industry he’s getting undeserved props. The only white rapper who truly deserved to be named amongst the great is Eminem all of them others are a disgrace to music.

Macklemore is the white rapper. Ryan Lewis is a producer and DJ.

Nicki Minaj conformed to their standards I mean look at her she went out got plastic surgery,booty implants and I’am pretty dam sure she doesn’t write all her lyrics.Nicki had to make her way to the top by conforming to the industry. Minaj is mad Because Iggy not only has a real body but she’s white and rapping.Minaj hates on other chicks yet try’s to make herself seem like she’s women friendly.

White people always have a reason their more deserving and better. You guys have lottery tickets and don’t know where to put them. Yet you still have plenty of things to say about blacks. We’ve stated from. Nothing and making a way to have everything. In my eyes we scare you. So you find ways to come and try to do what we do while bringing us down in the process. Who care she have plastic surgery. Seem like all white women live and breath it.

Nicki and Iggy hit it right. ~Problem~ is that some of the women can’t handle any thing but a one way man. The Industry () needs 50 shadz also . I volunteer every sat. See lots of one way thinks from both genders. It hurts their job culture and pocket chances. Happiness is more than 1 note !!

She’s proud that as a woman she’s succeeding in a male dominated world. Her sex being part of the reason she blew up. Yet Iggy succeeding in a black dominated world and finding success because of the color of her skin is unacceptable to Nicki. Kind of hypocritical.

Okay but. Women and black people are minorities. When it comes down to it, regardless of the percentage of either in the industry, it will be easier to make it big if you are white or a man. Nicki is definitely congratulating Iggy on succeeding as a woman, but not as a WHITE woman. Because white people are given a favorable bias regardless, it’s not a huge achievement for Iggy to make it in a black dominated industry.

Get you facts straight before calling people out. Women are not a minority we make up at least 50% of the World’s population. Iggy is not successful because she is a talented rap artist she is successful because she is white in a black dominant medium. White people want black music from white people that is a fact. If Iggy were black we would not have heard from her if she rapped like the white Australian she would not sell. Iggy has used black music and black people (as props in her videos) she even has the black boyfriend to give cred. Issy can’t be racist because she has a black boyfriend asian relatives ect. In her tweets and music videos Izzy displays the typical lazy racism of everyday white people.

What Nicki is firing is desperation. She didnt work hard…she made her schtick be her @aa the same way j.lo did. Her second album didn’t do well and her 2 or 3 singles lately haven’t done anything. She isn’t showing her backside on her latest single for nothing. She’s doing anything she can to keep going. She is on minute 14 and terrified because Iggy is blowing up & she’s white.

Like lil kim said, “…that means the end is near soon…copy that.”

What are you talking about? Her second album was the best selling hip-hop album of that year so if hers didn’t do so well so didn’t the other rappers. Plus she only released 1 official single the rest was remixes she made to other people songs/beats which was FREE. Why everyone is thinking she’s talking about iggy? She didn’t say her name or say a race so yall are the ones making the beef between them not nicki and iggy. When a new male rapper come up yall dont compare them but when a new female does yall do. Why? Sexist and double standard huh.

I couldn’t say it better. At first iggy’s music was interesting because she was a white girl sounding black. But now you can only take so much of each song sounding like the last one she did. Her voice really becomes irritating after a while. With Niki, you never know what you are gonna get, that and talent are her staying power.

Ummm, nicki, I wouldn’t call is racism unless you’re referring to something else. And yes, white artists get to take the elevator to the top while black ones get to use the stairs. Everybody loves black music with a white face. It does get frustrating but Do you and forget about the rest.

whites get to use the elevator but guess what.. blacks are more successful cuz they have more expiriences. Nobody likes black music with a white face. Nicki Minaj is always gonna be the queen of Hip-Hop no matter what. Iggy azalea doesn’t rap like Nicki and more people like Nicki cuz she doesn’t take anything for granted. She worked hard to get where she is today and she is still working hard. By the way the music industry is ran by black people let me prove it to u who was the king of pop Michael Jackson and it doesn’t count that he bleached his skin cuz he was black and will always be black. Most powerful couple in the world Beyoncé and Jay Z gess what… they r black too. So I think Nicki was trying to say that people r gonna think that Iggy is better than Nicki because she is white and she doesn’t think that’s fair that Iggy is cutting corners she thinks Iggy should work hard like she did. even when Iggy raps she doesn’t have that vibe that nicki has and she tries to make that accent that Nicki makes all the time but it doesn’t work cuz there’s only one Nicki Minaj on Earth and u can also tell she makes that accent cuz when she has interviews she doesn’t have the accent. NO body is taking the crown from Nicki cuz she’s the queen of Hip-Hop.

Thank you for stating the color of your skin. Im purple, so they both suck. ONLY purple skinned people should rap. We got it worse than all of you! Everyone else is racist if they rap. I know green people will disagree but your just haterz.
