The rapper Jidenna was forced to pay the rapper Iggy Azalea for using portions of her #1 single ‘Fancy’ to create his rising jam ‘Classic Man.’

Great for Iggy? It would be…if it was for true.

Confused?

Details below…

 In an interview with Hot 97, Jidenna and his mentor Janelle Monae cleared up the rumours surrounding the myth above as it spreads online.

The former broke it down for those who were confused by it all.

Some of the people have said Iggy Azalea is getting paid off this record. I’ve seen that a lot. The truth is, we actually didn’t sample it. But ever since the decision of Robin Thicke and Pharrell, we believe that it was important to make sure that we are safe.

The rapper was referring to the legal battle between Thicke, Pharrell and the family of Marvin Gaye who successfully sued the ‘Blurred Lines’ pair for using the late singer’s music to build the controversial number.

There’s more.

For, when addressing claims Jidenna had stolen from Iggy Monae shared the following thought:

She steals from us, so we steal back.

What Monae is reffering to?

    Janelle needs to simmer down. This is the first time I’ve ever felt negative about her. How are you going to say we didn’t sample her but still be compensating the white girl?

    • Toohotfortv August 15, 2015

      Sweatheart, have you never heard of a settlement? It’s just a move in the interest of good business.

  2. BubblePopElectric August 15, 2015

    LMAO!I live for Haus Mutha Monae!

  3. DanYiel Iman August 15, 2015

    Lordy everyone wants to blame Iggy Azaela, Im a fan so carry on!

  4. Iggy da baddest August 15, 2015

    She’s so pressed

  5. Bey-Minaj August 15, 2015

    Lol no one and I mean no onelikes that girl Iggy! She can’t catch a break. Lol

  6. Chillitsjustpizza August 15, 2015

    Jidenna looked at Janelle like b**** shut up with the race s*** before my career end before it gets started lmmfao.. Jidenna word of advice get out while u can.

  7. OMG Logic!!! August 15, 2015

    What truly petty woman. Grow the f*ck up b1tch. And then we have that clown Azelia talking sh1t about a White girl while rocking White girl hair smfh!

    • Toohotfortv August 15, 2015

      Exactly what is “white girl hair”? I’m really interested.

      • Don’t hate B!TCHES. Nicki is the queen not Heyonce August 15, 2015

        Hair that can move in the wind.

  8. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 15, 2015

    Janelle Monae is such a beautiful woman who soul glows. From the way she articulates her words, to the message of her content, she is nothing short of a diamond crafted through pressure. Simply, she is perfection in human form.

  9. pat August 15, 2015

    Truth is I never thought of fancy while listening to that record

  10. Beystan August 15, 2015

    I don’t take that Azealia Banks girl serious at all. He did all that crying about Iggy just because she’s JEALOUS. Yet she kicks it with Lil Debbie, she’s a walking contradiction. The only thing Yall can say Iggy “steals” is her accent. Like what she supposed to sound like after living in the south since she was 16. It’s called influence. No different than Adele or Sam smith singing in American accents. Dosent mean they tryna be black.

    • Aloys234 August 16, 2015

      About Sam Smith and Adele, they aren’t trying to sound Black, u mean to say American.. Just to clear that up.. Also, Azealia Banks isn’t jealous, far from it, seriously any person jealous of Iggy Azealia are probably her peers from high school, that’s all, no one else can fit in that category!

  11. Faf August 15, 2015

    Hmmm does iggy own the rights? I just assumed the songs had the same producer

    • Chillitsjustpizza August 15, 2015

      Yes she does. Iggy has a publishing deal which means she writes her own music and gets majority of her money off her songs. Janelle needs to keep it cute because if iggy really wanted to she could take them to court and get even more.

  12. king August 15, 2015

    Again black people hate on iggy cuz she’s white
    you can keep on trying to find excuses but we see the truth – it’s called – racism

    yes for your suprise racism is not only against black people and by the way music is universal so grow the f*ck up with all this Possessive s*** about hip hop/rap long gone are the days when it was just a black american thing! and you should be proude about that. and if she wants to mix it with pop like nicki she can do it who the f*ck are you to say anything?

    LOL “stealing from us” says the one who has a song about yoga which is a indain thing!

    we are living in a time when everything is universal, it’s time to growup b*tch.

    • ha ha August 15, 2015

      Atleast learn to f****** rap and not sound like a fishwife. And it is kinda funny to us who actually grew up with the styles, people like that are more like bandwaggon jumpers with no ear, vocally.

  13. True Lamb August 15, 2015

    who is monae to even part her lips to talk about IGGY??? monae is a huge FLOP GIRL PLEASE SIT DOWN SUMWHERE

    • Christian August 16, 2015

      Exactly. When has one of her albums been certified anything? I don’t see her on the RIAA website. I see iggy though

  14. Quinton251 AKA Lil Wayne Stan August 15, 2015

    Who cares?!? Iggy is done anyway, (2014-2015) ????????????????

    • Barb-wire August 15, 2015

      Kiii More like (2014 – 2014).

  15. Don’t hate B!TCHES. Nicki is the queen not Heyonce August 15, 2015

    Bitter racist b**** I hope she get some bad illness and dies slowly.

    • Diamond Princess August 15, 2015

      You’re a disgusting pig

      • Don’t hate B!TCHES. Nicki is the queen not Heyonce August 15, 2015

        No honey pigs are not disgusting and neither am I just RACIST c#nts like her and you.

  16. Barb-wire August 15, 2015

    Why are we still even talking about Piggy? She’s done, move on. I did say I give her one year coz these wacky h*** could get hot for one summer after that the Queen will still reign here. Oh by the way… Classic Man >>>> Flop-cy

    • Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

      I guess the same reason why people still talk about that desperate s**** onika.

    • ha ha August 15, 2015

      Nicki Minaj next. Can’t rap for s***. lol

  17. Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

    She sounds pressed not Iggys fault that Yoga was a big fat FLOP.

    • Barb-wire August 15, 2015

      The irony of you calling anything a flop when you stan for an unlucky ho who hasn’t seen the top 70 in ages even after sucking and riding every available d**** it could find, the t***** still is rejected.

      • Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

        Ciara hasn’t seen the top 70 in ages sis? But I bet was in top 45 a couple months ago kii. Meanwhile Nicki is 6 years into her career and is still struggling to get a Grammy and #1 hit something Queen Ciara has….. How do you collaborate with Mariah,Beyonce, and Rihanna and still remain grammyless? kiiii

    • Barb-wire August 15, 2015

      I stopped reading that crap you wrote at “Queen Ciara” lol what Queen gives back to back in a row? Kiii I can’t even say Tinashe’s lessor coz I would be disrespecting Tinashe a lot. Soo many years wasted trying to fit in this industry but ten years later people still don’t give shittt except for the few desperate idiots who thinks they can wife that cursed W H O R E (i.e.. Future)

      • Barb-wire August 15, 2015

        *Flops

  18. XXX August 15, 2015

    So wait whenever classic man gets played Iggy gets paid? Looooool

  19. Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

    Love Jidenna tho..

  20. Jon August 15, 2015

    Who’s to say she isn’t rocking Asian girl hair, or Middle Eastern girl hair, or any other hair but “White girl hair”?

  21. Barb-wire August 15, 2015

    I stopped reading that crap you wrote at “Queen Ciara” lol what Queen gives back to back in a row? Kiii I can’t even say Tinashe’s lessor coz I would be disrespecting Tinashe a lot.

    • Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

      But who is wifing up Onika besides M***** mill (who the whole world hates) Your fav has such low self-esteem dating someone who resembles a deformed frog and touching his junk on stage smh so classless kiiii. No one respects Onigger she doesn’t respect herself Pothang.

      • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 15, 2015

        Not you talking about people not respecting themselves when you make all your friends on TGJ and Twiiter, while you scrounge around for loose change on the streets to buy off-brand Ben & Jerry’s from CVS. Kiiiii, not you talking about respecting anyone, when your fave doesn’t respect herself enough to get full Gender Reassignment Surgery, so that she doesn’t have to tuck each morning. Not you talking about respect when your fave refuses to promote instead of being in a relationship every 4 5 seconds. Not you talking about respect when you want to switch to the H** so that you’ll have Slay_Hive and Annalise to hide behind since you can’t drag alone, running all throughout this blog calling people King & Queen. Tuh…

  22. Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 15, 2015

    Why does Mothball-Molly Parton always have the most ironic and negative things to say, and then want to kiss and make up with everyone. You live vicariously through this website don’t you? Smh, you’re A***’s Slave now ????

    • Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

      But you were just begging for Annalises forgiveness the other day haha GIRL have several seats.

      • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 15, 2015

        And weren’t you JUST on a post last night doing the same thing? Tuh. You can’t clock tea that you’re already sipping from, yourself, sis.

  23. Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

    @Barb_Wire is legit the fakest bitchh on this site. This is the same thot that said it loves, respects, and supports Ciara. How can one stan make you hate an artist?

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 15, 2015

      The same reason that no one uses Ciara after Jazzy Phe decided it was more valuable to invest in the food going into his gut, than Ciara’s stagnant career. The same reason you’re hiding behind Annalise now. The same reason you were in my DM’s with Cheryl talking ish about Barb-Wire instead of @’ing her.

    • Barb-wire August 15, 2015

      Bittch please stop the shitt! You the fakest ho in this site, flip flopping between all these artists. You stay in Nicki’s C U N T trash talking her all the time and you actually think I’ll praise your flop fave? I tried being positive towards Ciaerror but you’ve always tried it with Onika so don’t play the victim now bittch.

      • Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

        Eat a dicckk and stay outta my reply section you ghetto piece of TRASH. You and Nicki are scum compared to Ciara and myself. Also take your pet Rihslavery with you.

  24. Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

    I see why its mad…. Kiii

      You’re so bored and lazy, copying and pasting “Drags”/Receipts from the Kelly NowhereLand post, yet you have the audacity to come for Keri Qween’s lower totem pole ass for recycling the same drags. Girl sit on a cactus and twirl.

      You can copy and post all you want, but you’d be better pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE and starting the ‘Task Manager’ figuring out which applications and operations you need to Cease and Desist before you continue going down the wrong path to destruction and crashing, because it’s really easy to ‘accidentally’ catch a virus and lose everything or get hacked. Keep it cute you ugly hoeeeeee

      GATHER THAT FAKE HOEEEE! Literally no one uses her.

  27. Barb-wire August 15, 2015

    I can’t at this nut sucker @Molly thinking after all shitt it talks about Onika, I’d have a positive word about Ciara. I actually liked Ciara but I ain’t playing that shitt anymore.

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 15, 2015

      It’s the main reason I can’t support Ciara, her fans just like Ciara’s musical direction, is fickle and confused.

      Kiiiii it’s mad cause Nicki is winning and Ci-T***** isn’t.

      • Barb-wire August 15, 2015

        Smh…

    • Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

      The thing is I never pretend to like Nicki. You acted like you liked Ciara and then turned on her smh that is fake af!!!! I have no respect for you, you sloppy insecure bitchh.

  28. ratedxxx August 15, 2015

    damn when it rains it pours….ahahahahahhahahaah

    I don’t even like janelle monae….but i did have a good laugh or two…

    I do believe black people can also be racist….but umm but there isn’t any racism toward iggy….she just sucks point blank period

  29. Sahsa_T August 15, 2015

    This whole interview was great and you choose to focus on the most negative 2 second remark which isn’t even verbatim of what she said. Ya’ll get pettier and pettier. It’s so reductive. Anyway, Jidenna is so cute and and his background in Nigeria was interesting to hear.

  30. Louie August 15, 2015

    You people are stupid! I’ve never thought of Fancy when listening to Classic Man! Y’all are always complaining about Blacks always crying about ish! That’s because half of the ish they cry about is TRUE! Let a white person say something, and you all make it the gospel! America is a truly sickening place!!!! Whites have stolen from Blacks from the beginning of time, and continue to do so, but of course they will always receive ALL THE CREDIT!!! F U ALL!!

    • Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

      You race debaters are annoying.

  31. Molly #September4thSurprise August 15, 2015

    The Nicki stan only liked Ciara because the hive did smh bitchess are so fake and desperate to fit in kii

  32. Ozzy August 15, 2015

    I love her.

  33. Chillitsjustpizza August 15, 2015

    The fact that the yogo flop singer said you steal from us we steal from you is just what Iggy lawyer wanted to hear. So jidenna did steal the fancy beat and change the chords.. Typical n**** s***… This is why we don’t get the credit we deserve.

  34. junior August 16, 2015

    Azelia please SHUT UP!!!!!! she is so wack and all she does is complain! please some one hit her with a bus already…
