Coolio: “Iggy Azalea Has No Rap Skills”

iggy azalea that grape juice 2014 8000 Coolio: Iggy Azalea Has No Rap Skills

‘County Line‘ lyricist Coolio is unimpressed with Iggy Azalea.

Yes, despite dominating the ‘Billboard Hot 100′ with ‘Fancy‘ and dishing up the budding hit that is ‘Beg For It‘, Azalea‘s supposed lack of rap skills have made her the target of criticism aimed at her by the ‘Ghetto Cartoon’ artist.

Speaking to ‘Vlad TV’, Coolio revealed that while he believes white privilege saw the likes of Eminem and Yelawolf get their foot in industry’s front door, their undeniable lyrical ability is to thank for keeping them in the room.

The same, according to him, cannot be said for Ms. Azalea.

His words below…

      You just make yourself look like a fool, those people you named has talent and acclaim something Iggy does not. She lyrics are mediocre at best, and her flow is atrocious and on top of it all her fake southern accent is hideous. HipHop isn’t about sales it’s about talent so no matter how many singles she sales she will never be acclaimed or excepted by the HipHop industry.

        Ok and your point she still sucks as a rapper, yeah she has some good pop bops but she until she just releases anything lyrically as good as Lauryn Hill, Missy, Nicki (when she’s being serious), hell even lil Kim (see Black Friday the song not the mixtape) then Iggy will be acclaimed and accepted in the HipHop industry because she goes hard like Eminem, and those other artist you named, like I said before mainstream success doesn’t mean anything in the HipHop industry and Iggy is successful but that isn’t going to cut it, however these nobodies really need to worry about themselves and their own careers.

    No lies detected, Eminem & Yelawolf are great rappers. Iggy is not a great rapper and her solo material is lackluster, which is why she has a pop singer on all her singles to make the songs more appealing, and that fake accent she raps in gets annoying after awhile.

    Her rhymes sound like they were written by T.I to me, even her delivery screams “T.I wrote this”.

    The more these has/never-beens shade Iggy, the more I seem to like her….IDK. Why is one chick getting them so mad though?

    Iggy must be doing something right if she’s getting even Nicki Minaj to shift her release date.

        They should concentrate on revamping their careers instead of coming for Iggy.

        Why are they shading Iggy and leaving Tyga, Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Juicy J, Rich kid, Flo Rida, Pitbull, and many of those whack, run of the mill, cannot write a rhyme, shouldn’t be writing a rhyme, how did you become a rapper and get a record deal, horrible rent-a-rappers.

        Those are the people they should be shading and not Iggy. She has her flaws but the hate she’s getting is just getting out of hand.

    No one is shading her bcuz she’s white or a threat. Its bcuz she is wack. Em and all them other white boyz has talent. That’s what made them stand out and what made them relevant even today. What made Fancy #1? Charlie’s hook!! No one is checking for Iggy’s verses in a lyrical way. Non hip hop fans have got to realize that hip hop is all about lyricism, flow, metaphors, punchlines and skill. If u wack u gonna get called out. If Nicki was wack and killing the charts they woulda called her ass out too. But Nicki is the Queen of metaphors, everyone knwos this and until Iggly steps her word play up she gon get pounded. Its the reason no one in hip hop is checking for her or respects her. She is the epitome of fake!

      Please. Nicki is hit or miss and “Anaconda” only was a hit because she relied on the “BGB” sample. Nicki’s last good single was on CB’s “Love More” as a feature. Don’t be mad cause Iggy owned summer 2014 and Nicki was forgotten until she sold her ass on that sampled messy ass track!

    What a hater. How are you upset a white female half your age already has a bigger hit than your 1-hit wonder ass has?

    And I’m not saying Iggy has skill when it comes to writing, because ppl clearly you never know how much is co written from other writers.

    BUT I will respect Iggy’s flow. She can spit when she wants to. She did so on “Black Widow” “Work” and other songs from her album. To me that is the main thing that makes someone in Hip Hop catchy, their flow. And hers is. I rather her her rap and spit, than Big Sean and his lazy ass flow!

    Iggy is a fraud and she can sell 1 million records but she will never get respect from the old hip hop heads. Eminem and Yelawolf earned their spots because they have talent (check out their free styles… Where are iggys?) and don’t have to rely on other rappers to write their rhymes.

    They only say this about white rappers. Why don’t they speak up about black rappers who aren’t doing anything for rap and hip-hop? Music isn’t what it used to be and that problem came long before Iggy.

      Im pretty sure Jay-z and Nas have called out alot of these new rappers. Iggy came and put the final nail in the coffin tbh

    I don’t understand why these people criticizing her skills didn’t call her out when she was just releasing mixtapes and not mainstream, the fact that they are doing it now because of her success makes them look bitter…and why just call her out why not call out all the wack rappers in the game like 2 chainz, Rich gang, Future etc.

    Everybody did the same to Nicki when she first hit the scene, they use to say she could not freestyle and look at her NOW, It seems more of jealousy than a FACT, Coolio has not been around since the 90’s and all of a sudden he’s on this website making an opinion about a chart topper? Numbers don’t lie #NOHATE

    On the real, Iggy isn’t great, but FAR from the worst. Just let it be, look at Tyga and the rest of those one hit clowns. THEY killed your genre.
