Rising from the ashes of Kreayshawn‘s hype, Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks are undoubtedly Pop’s most exciting newbies, fresh new faces in a Beyonce, Rihanna and Nicki world.
Just as famed for the feud as they are for their stand out styles, both Rappers have benefited from the spat, using each other to dominate conversation and debate.
Now, Azalea has weighed in on the matter, comparing her rival to legendary MC Kanye West.
Full story below…
On Bank’s criticism of her feature on XXL Magazine, Iggy confessed:
I kind of felt like Taylor Swift and Kanye West and I was Taylor Swift. I felt like this is supposed to be my moment, this is my great achievement, it’s great for me and it’s great for my country, it’s great for women, and I felt like it got stolen from me in a sense.
It was frustrating because I felt like that was supposed to be a poignant moment for me and it got taken away.
Though no lies were told here, we can’t but cringe at the Kanye reference.
For, almost as if she hasn’t ticked off enough people with ‘Slave Master‘- gate, supporting the idea that Kanye (like Banks) is some sort of ‘moment stealing menace’ wasn’t the best idea- even if it is true.
For, as she has already learned, critics make it their business to take words out context and use them as fuel for fire, and with these remarks, Iggy just handed them a match and a lighter.
Either way, with incomparable talent and an oh so refreshing stance on music, That Grape Juice looks forward to hearing more from Iggy, and her debut album ‘The New Classic‘.
