Da Brat Praises Nicki Minaj & Weighs In On Iggy Azalea In New Interview

Published: Thursday 23rd Apr 2015 by David


Da Brat is unsure if Iggy Azalea has staying power.

Yes, in a new interview released this week the rapper revealed that she is yet to determine if the ‘Black Widow‘ chart-topper has what it takes to enjoy a career as fruitful as that of her rival’s Nicki Minaj.

Will you agree with what Ms. Brat has to say?

Find out below…

Hit the 1 minute mark.

It takes hard work to be legendary.You gotta be in the game for years and you gotta have that longevity [and] that staying power. I’m blessed to still be here [and to have] people still sing my songs and know who I am. To me, that’s longevity. MC Lyte, longevity. Queen Latifah, longevity. Missy Elliott, longevity. [We all have] that drive. And, we all got love for each other and we support each other.

I definitely feel like Nicki [Minaj] gon’ have longevity [but] I’m not sure about Iggy [Azalea.  Right now she dope. I haven’t really heard [Iggy] ‘spit spit’ and ‘spit spitting’ is coming back.


Brat’s estimation comes after Azalea came under fire following the unearthing of a performance she delivered at 2013’s ‘Splash.’

    Well its true though. Nicki has been going strong for SIX YEARS now. Whether people like it or not Nicki has already cemented herself as a notable female rapper. There is no way people will forget Nicki as far a female rappers go. She is also on her way to cement herself as a credible MC.

    • maurice April 23, 2015

      Not without her ghostwriter Safaree she aint.
      She was spitting like a dude cos a dude was wriitng her ish. DEATH!!

    • Mark111 April 23, 2015

      lol, going on strong. Pink Crap is still under 600K.

      • April 23, 2015

        so if a album didn’t go platin um in you’er sights it’s cr@p, what a f-cking r***** you are.tpp is a great album
        her best album yet, but a r***** like you who is watching numbers will never see that.

      • Faf April 23, 2015

        It went platinum tho

        It’s at 1050000 with streams included

        So when Rihanna sells 790k total U.S. This era and y’all wanna count her streams (as billboard now does) should we call that a flop, too?

      • Carry On April 23, 2015

        But Nicki got crayonce right with a dash of Jay Z’s blue print like she is the female version seem cool. Now if it can get to some real funk from this cold dead ish they call music then we got something. I don’t have to be the same ole just something key rockin banging from some real artist. Dang!! it’s like people must be scared in the studio to address that some songs just sound mediocre. When you hear songs now playing over and over it just get played with the quickness. They just need to stop with this pimp media move and bring on some real mc’s as ghost writers. They got soundtracks from movies sound better than regular albums and back then they didn’t even have the net. Come On!! get this fake ish out of here. People starting to see right through it and artist like the Brat is just trying to be nice.

        I see you’re keeping up with all things Nicki. Let me give you your official Stan card ho. Lol

        Yo momma

  3. SMH April 23, 2015

    Iggy has already fallen and it hasn’t even been 5 years, so I detect no lies.

    • Vegeta, Prince of Slayans April 23, 2015

      Aunt Wendy said it best, she’s good for one year and one album

  4. The Pinkprint April 23, 2015

    Iggy is already on her way out since Beg for It, Trouble, All Hands on Deck, Go Hard or Go Home, etc. ALL FLOPPED. If her debut could barely sell 500k with a 7 week number 1 and another top ten hit, I can’t imagine how much her next album will sell.

    • maurice April 23, 2015

      i’m no iggy stan, but beg for it is reaching platinum.
      Go Hard or Go Home is a cut from an album — not an actual single.
      Hands on Deck will do at least 500k, while ‘No Mediocre’ is platinum.

      But if Nicki is so awesome, why is her latest album still pending platinum certifcation WORLDWIDE? After 5 MONTHS. CHILE!

      • Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

        All hands on deck single is not with iggy FYI . tinashe was mad that Iggy pushed her tour back and ran with Nicki so she released the song Without her on it and that’s why its gonna flop.

      • Kills k*** April 23, 2015

        people don’t look at albums sales no more, though it has 200 million streams. Her worst first week is Rihanna’s best first week (just saying). Her singles are doing Incredibly well all charting for weeks., she’s selling out Arenas RIGHT NOW. While iggy is pushing back her tour because “she wasn’t feeling the production.” But we all know it’s lack of tickets sales.

  5. truth tea April 23, 2015

    remember when nicki went on that childish twitter rant against Mariah and also attacked Da Brat

    • April 23, 2015

      so what is you’er point,she thought da brat was coming for her, because da-brat and mariah is tight like that.it was a misunderstanding and nicki apologize for going at da-brat. why did you left that part out, when you telling a story tell the whole thing.

    • JustCoastWitHa April 23, 2015

      That’s because she thought da brat came out her face, she also apologized, which u failed to mention –_–

  6. Antmo April 23, 2015

    Da brat is the first female solo rapper to go platinum
    Salt n pepa were the first female rap act to go platinum
    Foxy was the first to have a number one album
    Missy is the to have 5 platinum albums
    Lil Kim or eve were the first to go double plat
    Nicki has the most top tens and most singles sold
    Iggy has longest number one single by female rap act
    Mc lyte the first to have a gold single
    Latifah the first to win a Grammy

    Just throwing that out there

    • Arianator Barb April 23, 2015

      That is a great list, female rappers never get the recognition the deserve. Don’t forget Lauryn Hill, only female rapper to win 5 Grammys in one night and have an 8x platinum album

      • Antmo April 23, 2015

        Side note: I always wondered why she won the Grammy for best female r&b vocal for that thing and 80% of the song she’s rapping she’s still deserving of all the Grammys she’s won tho

      • April 23, 2015

        And the only black female to win AOTY twice (With Santana)

  7. Rihboy April 23, 2015

    Nicki Minaj is a formidable force right now as a rapper. Not only has she solidified her place as a rapper; she ventured into pop and solidified her spot there for a while as well. Props! She is lyrically a monster. iggy on the other hand is just a total mess. You can’t even compare them. she will soon crossover to just pop. she came on the scene racist, and way to confident. Nicki humbles herself plenty. Even tho she has tracks where she is high on a pedestal, she has always given props to her inspirers. Lastly much more innovative than any female rappers out right now. Azalea has the ability to be just as good too; however her attitude and demeanor isn’t as business savvy or friendly like nickis.

    • Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

      Nicki is not at all friendly I met her and she’s very ignorant. Yelling at the security telling them to get us out the way. Even looking at her interviews she’s very ignorant. Very angry woman

    • AmbeRussell April 23, 2015

      I wouldn’t say nicki humbled herself as she has many twitter rants, childish diss records, telling her fans she ain’t local and they need to get on her level during roman reloaded release bc she had those cheesy bubble gum hip hop tracks.

  8. Arianator Barb April 23, 2015

    Iggy will be remembered for fancy and fancy only, let’s be real. That’s an accomplishment in and of itself but it won’t result in a legacy.

  9. Jencarlos Canela/ Marlene favela April 23, 2015

    “I haven’t really heard [Iggy]
    ‘spit spit’ and ‘spit spitting’ is coming back.” that’s the only place I’m interested in… we all already know Nicki been and is killing shits for long…. Just like truffle butter is almost plat without any promo, Only double platinum and hey mama climbing the chat with no promo….

  10. Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

    Nicki is not a lyricist. She has never been humble .Let’s be real y’all and I’m not hating. Nicki killed female rap and da brat knows that she’s just playing the game. Nicki has never embraced another female rapper so why should any of them be happy about her.that grape juice must be a Nicki Stan lol. What was the post about Iggy for?

    • April 23, 2015

      stop lying, nicki have embrace female rappers,and the only fake on here is you.i won’t even give you recipes because they are already out there but you choose not to see them.

      • Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

        Missy, kim da brat eve,Remy ma,queen latifah, yo yo,charlie baltimore etc. She has never embraced them besides foxy brown messy ass and she didn’t do a song with her.she just brung her big ass out on stage. Not because she liked foxy brown it was only to f*** with lil kim. Dej loaf is on tour with her because she’s not threatened by her basic bars. Again Nicki has never embraced another female rapper. Has she put any of them on her album? No. has she performed live with any of them besides m.I.a and that’s because of Madonna. She worked with eve and Trina only because of ludacris and they murdered her lmao Again since Nicki is the queen of rap and other rappers are hasbeens or washed up why won’t she do a ladies night since she wanna be lil kim. I can’t see how u stans cant see that she knows what she’s doing and it ain’t putting other female rappers back on the map.

    • Arianator Barb April 23, 2015

      She has another female rapper on her tour, “who’s the best? Nick, Fox and Kim”, when Remy came out of jail “hit me up Rem!!”, “I really wanted to get Lauryn Hill on champion”, created a freestyle and got those ptaf chicks a record deal, not to mention the amount of love her and Trina show each other. I’m just going off the top of my head but please sit the hell down with that she doesn’t embrace females s***

      • Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

        since Nicki is the queen of rap and other rappers are hasbeens or washed up why won’t she do a ladies night since she wanna be lil kim. I can’t see how u stans cant see that she knows what she’s doing and it ain’t putting other female rappers back on the map.

      • Igguana AZoolea April 23, 2015

        Don’t give this h** anymore life, it’s clearly thirsty as hell, let it die slowly

    • JustCoastWitHa April 23, 2015

      Embraced a female rapper in what way tho? She’s spoken about and big’d up many female rappers from the past. She doesn’t have to collab with these new b****** if she doesn’t want to. Although Dej Loaf is on board for the pink print tour

  11. Beezy April 23, 2015

    Yall keep believing that IGGY IS DONE!…. THE B**** IS KILLING SHXT!. Her Songs @Charting well, but her music is being played on TV shows, Commercials, Blockbuster Movies…. which is called “Royalties”… When was the last time you heard a nicki song in a movie?… He’ll Iggy had a song in a nicki movie. When will yall Birds Learn… IGGY IS GOING FULL POP! NEXT ALBUM, THIS BRITNEY DUET WILL DEBUT @TOP 3, Iggy is not a lyricists, spitter, Mc etc… She makes Broadway musical raps and guess what, she making mad loot doing it too!

    • Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

      Actually Iggy next album is gonna be more hiphop like work. She also said she’s gonna be doing some singing too. She’s here to destroy Nicki. Iggy can really spit when she wants too believe it or not. Hefe wine taught her well. Iggy is paid and her songs aren’t about how shes the best rapper alive.

  12. Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

    Iggy is killing the game in her own lane and that’s why she will have longetivity. Nicki stay dissing women and men and the reason she won’t do a track with true MCs is because those women will crush her. Remember 5_star chick with her and Trina. Trina slayed Nicki lmao. She hated on Iggy at the bet awards saying when Nicki minaj spit Nicki minaj wrote it.hmmm why did she say that. I know why, she did that so the public won’t think a white woman is rapping better than her lmao no shade no shade.da brat likes Iggy and so does other female rappers besides eve hating ass. Female unity…..

    • Pat April 23, 2015

      Eve sholl be hatin, lmfao!

  13. Beezy April 23, 2015

    Iggy Probably made $25k-50k just sitting in her living room in her PJ’S because ABC bought the rights to use “Trouble” on their show!… So who’s really winning!

  14. Igguana AZoolea April 23, 2015

    Iggy flo sounds like an extremely watered down elementary school version of brats flow. Listen to “whatchu like” and tell me you don’t hear Iggy, if you don’t it’s cuz the lyrics are actually decent

    • Arianator Barb April 23, 2015

      OMG I never noticed til now, she does sound like a kidz bop version of brat

    • Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

      She was trained by her ex boyfriend heffe wine and he taught her how to rap like him ad he’s from the south. She stated that her rap influences were da brat, eve, Missy and kim. She’s not afraid to admit the obvious unlike Nicki minaj. YouTube hefe wine and Iggy azalea. He will tell u the whole story of her wanting to rap. He reminds me of an older t i. Mixed with ja rule.

      • Igguana AZoolea April 23, 2015

        Once again, don’t give this h** life

      • Lake Erie April 23, 2015

        Wow, she said da brat was her influence? I’d like to hear her perspective after reading this blog. If she’s real, it won’t change but It’d still hurt though.

  19. No favs, just here for the music April 23, 2015

    Iggy is trash tbh. I give it 2 more years TOPS and I’m being generous here

  20. ace April 23, 2015

    If it wasn’t for safaree and lil kim nicki wouldn’t have made it this far and thanks to her ass shots without her ass she’s nothing.iggy new and she’s humble and always performs better than nicki.nicki a booty poper iggy performs and gets better as time goes. Da brat needs to sit down she’s broke owe money to everybody and nobody checking for her.

    • Exposing these fakes April 23, 2015

      Your right her whole career was based of safaree writing for her and using lil Kim’s formula but that sad part is that she got the world convinced she writes her own music and thst she created rap. Lmao. Dabrat really can’t stand what Nicki has done to hip hop she’s just playing the game.

  21. Barb-wire April 23, 2015

    There shouldn’t even be comparisons, Nicki literally kills that wack ho Igloo. I still want to hear a track where she can spit like a true MC, enough with the nursery rhymes haux.

  22. Barb-wire April 23, 2015

    If it wasn’t for Safaree and Kim? Now I know you have lost your damn mind.

    • Barb-wire April 23, 2015

      @That fool Ace.

  23. RATEDXXX April 23, 2015

    because I’m a huge fan of Kim, I never understood the hype when it came to nicki…kim came up with the black barbie thing first…

    but nicki did eventually grow on me….

    as for iggy…she is white…even if the rapping thing doesnt work out..she will have dozens of offers left and right

  24. Kitty Puurrzz April 23, 2015

    Yall want people to dislike Iggy so bad & it’s pathetic. It’s okay not to like Iggy but to try & get other people not to like her makes you a hater… Iggy will be around just as long as Nicki. They both are repping for females in rap music & that should be celebrated.

  25. HOWYOULIKEIT April 23, 2015

    Da Brat you forgot to mention Lil Kim. She is legendary and has longetivity too !!!

  26. JT April 23, 2015

    When Nicki addressed her as “sir” still funny to this day!!!!!!

  27. Paulo April 23, 2015

    I’m a bit mad at the reporter for coming for Da Brat’s butch style haha that was a nice interview. it’s so sad that female rap is highly underrepresented on the music business.

  28. WE FOUND RIHANNA April 23, 2015

    Brat ain’t mention Lil Kim as legendary! IGGY is a FLOP! The whole world is watching Trouble slip, fall and injure itself off every possible chart.

    Carry On!!

  29. @FutureCIARA April 23, 2015

    Rap Legend!

  30. You wanna love it right better then my money April 24, 2015

    Nice interview of her and there are some people that don’t understand iggy azaleas rap sheet skills
