Scribbled in history books for some good and not-so-good reasons, 2016 brought with it some of modern music’s most memorable moments.
As the year draws to a close, TGJ is reflecting on 31 moments that rocked – and to some degree shaped – the Urban and Pop musical landscape as we know it.
Now, after reflecting on the many L’s of her nemesis, Azealia Banks, we’ll revisit the L’s 2016 dished out to Grammy-nominated rapstress Iggy Azalea:
2014 and 2015 dealt rapper Iggy Azalea some crushing blows (see: plans for stadium tour falls flat, unrelenting attacks from some of rap’s most respect names, monthly Twitter beefs, and more). Sadly, 2016 was no less forgiving.
See what we mean below:
Iggy reignites beef with Azealia Banks
Fiance Nick Young Admits To Cheating

Just keep fighting ring and get back up. When you get this much s*** thrown at you it’s only building character. I’m nkt a fan but keep the fight going don’t quit.
THANK YOU! Iggy is THE FIRST white female rapper to EVER have a Platinum album, EVER to have a #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, EVER to have a #1 on the WORLD CHART, and has the most charting songs on the Billboard Hot 100 for a white female rapper ever! I don’t care what anyone says, that’s an accomplishment! She’s THE FIRST…can’t take that away from her! Special mention to Rapture by Blondie for paving the way! I stan for my girl and I will never apologize for it.
“The first white…” ? The “first” rule only applies to people who had to defy the odds to achieve something. Nice try though.
Double Dutchess, I really wish you show up on TGJ the day YOUR GIRL drops…don’t get ghost now lol…maybe you’ll like this better…
LMAO @ DoubleDucess I was coming here to say the same thing! lmao First? Like the world isn’t ready to drop everything for a white blonde woman.
funny how most of these people taking “Ls” are still doing much better than the person creating these “articles. a mess a kii a cackle!
Not with u on his site tho
Y’all don’t get it
He gets paid for advertising
U visiting is helping his pockets
He’s not paid to sing dance nor rap he’s paid to publish content
So who else is this site gonna point out their failures?
right, like wheres the post about minute maid’s failure on hbo or all of its singles’ failures on the charts.
wonderin if yall be doing a The Many L’s of Nicki Minaj up next, cuz I can def think of more than a few.. do it, complete the trinity!
Team’s underperformance is the only L she took this year…Iggy is SNATCHED, she’s dating and her album drops next year…I just hope she doesn’t collaborate with Fergie lol…other than that, I’m ready for the follow-up to her PLATINUM debut album!
??????? Still Iggy Szn?
Let’s not forget when she admitted to being racist and homophobic after denying those tweets were real for years. Home girl went on power 106 and said they were fake only to admit they were hers when she was snatched from that pride concert. Back to the hotel room you go sis. #ManInASuit #CandidCamera #Escort
Fergie ain’t the queen of nothing lol
when exactly did she admit to that? lmao remember when your fave pretended to be latina or some ish to get a pass for being in a hip hop group? lol
Better go back down memory lane boo boo. She admitted to saying those things and apologised. Then Nick Jonas took her spot. Po’thang.
Cackling downe! Nick cut their fake relationship quicker than she could say g’day Mate.
Iggy was the one doing the cutting tho? lmao
Even if she gets a hit single she’ll still flop with the album and ticket sales. So many say they stan for her but don’t buy anything she sells (her bogus backstory included). Her best bet is to put out an entire album without a lead single. If she only sold 50k with Fancy what was she going to do with Team.
J Cole is Drakes understudy though.
And he’s never had a number one song Which had Fancys impact.
Team actually had a decent start and was her highest debut, the video was just a bit underwhelming for Iggy standards and didnt add the hype she needed but despite that the problem was that it stalled on radio, then the bigger stations didnt support it so it just fizzled out..
You black people are jealous because she did well in your field. Foh with That jealousy
Don’t do it biatch. Zeaunt do it.
Jealous of what? A tour with empty seats? Her days as an escort? Those videos of her rapping like a possessed banshee? Exactly what do we, the originators of the genre she tried to slay in, have to be envious of?
B**** even vanilla ice had a hit
Define “well.” Last I checked she couldn’t release her new album because the song flopped harder than a fish out of Evian water. Nicki sells everything she puts out and actually underperforms because she doesn’t chase hits. Just remember that her lowest selling album sold five times more than Iggy’s did first week. I know it must be hard to watch her career go down the drain but please don’t tell lies.
I’m an Iggy fan and idk what you gain from comments like this, then again this is my first time clicking on this devil spawned site so idk how yall operate around here
She did take a giant L this year, even after taking a year off and planned to release in 2016. I’m talking music, I don’t care about her personal issue. Don’t forget Wacklemore flopped this year as well. 🙂
Giant L is a big of a giant overreaction. She released like one single, that had a decent start but failed to keep up the momentum… not like she released a bunch of “lead” singles that all failed to chart anywhere. Team actually had set her up a nice lil buzz for a follow up single. but she basically stopped the album campaign altogether after she broke up w her fiance/took the Summer for herself/recorded more material/went to australia for the x factor or whatever.
a bit of*
Excuses, she had an album title, first single and everything. You don’t spend money on muisc videos for a buzz. It was a loss, deal with it. To make you feel a lil better, a lot of White pop girls flopped this year.
So they spent all that money on a video for a buzz single? Poor confused thing you are!
So why y’all just focusing on Ls with FEMALE RAPPERS, huh? I swear Nicki PAYS Y’ALL to make her look good. The propaganda is real in these messy streets but ain’t nothing fooling me. Nicki the same bish who has a r***** for a brother and an arsonist for a daddy, no Nicki show in production due to Jelani Maraj (Hahaha), no grammy nominations after releasing 71238923689 singles this year, and still no #1 single on Billboard. The h** even made a mockery of a woman with mental illness on her IG and there was no coverage bout it here. How’s that for Ls? Clowns.
Did Nicki do those things or did her brother?
Thank you!! @dutchess
nicki took no L’s this year…the people around her did (meek, drake, her brother, dad).
no grammy nods..but no album out. hmmm..lol.
Nicki has nothing to do with OTHER people’s decisions. So I don’t get your point honestly. Nicks had two sold out world tours one of which made thirteen million in less than a year. Not to mention she was number six on Forbes, the only female I might add, and made 20.6 million dollars with no album out and without an active tour. So the only L I see is the one your h** ass mother took the day she pushed you out.
bish don’t u EVER come for my mama who graduated from a REAL university an became nurse. she inspires me everyday!. u stay throwing shade from ur community college dorm u confused nutcake. i know that d**** up ya b*** got u feelin all type of ways. but i aint the one!!
Everyone has Ls and Ws, it depends on how you look at it and present the “facts” to the public. Yes the press is extremely biased, idk if this site is being “paid” and I haven’t rly been here before but a quick lil search does show some bias tendencies towards favoring Nicki.
Josie is right!
It takes a certain level of maturity to remove one’s head from out Nicki’s fake ass and realize the squeaky clean propaganda on this site. I recall posts about Team falling off Billboard top 40 after a week, Nicki cheating on her (mad posts about that), the whole Elephant PETA situation. Not once were there reports about Nicki’s brother’s molestation accusations, her flop ass No Broken Hearts single or even when she came at that mentally ill woman on IG which even other blogs and Wendell Williams cussed her out for. This site is mad paid by Oinka.
*Nick cheating on Iggy, but nothing about Nicki and Meek breaking up
No posts about nicki r***** brother? Hmm…would u look at what I found here?
Wow one thing, FOH. This site is still biased af. They wanna capture Azealia’s highs and very lows and not do the same with Nicki…CONSISTENTLY. That’s your new word for the day. Learn it.
loool! he had to dig REAL DEEP in that fake b*** all the way to back DECEMBER 2015 to prove a point. 1 whole year and no nicki dirt up in the blog? dem receipts are expired ma’am. this blog bashes iggy and a.b. constantly while nicki gets a free pass.
As the truth teller insider, i cannot stand white privielege iggy,but shes already down dont knock her its mean
I will support Iggy no matter what she still hott she just has to have the right SONG ‘Team” was and is the s*** I don’t understand why it did not do better she will get it together though she has audience!!
Remy is the only female artist who won this year I mean she had the streets locked with “All The Way Up”
You forgot to include her panned judging stint on X-Factor Australia. She was so bad that even her fellow judges criticised her in the press while the show was still on air.
