‘Rigged As F*ck’!: Iggy Azalea Slams YouTube For Allegedly Limiting Views of Her New ‘Sip It’ Music Video

Published: Sunday 4th Apr 2021 by Rashad

Love her or loathe her, one thing that can’t be knocked is Iggy Azalea‘s grand hustle.

Despite virtual absence from radio since 2016, the now-independent diva – thanks to undeniable bops and high quality music videos – continued to be one of the most consistent female rappers in the history of the genre.

That consistency may translate to praise and adoration from her dedicated fan base, affectionately called #Azaleans, but it hasn’t always morphed into commercial acclaim – a truth Azalea took to Twitter over the weekend to suggest isn’t just happenstance.

Friday (April 2), Azalea unveiled her long-awaited new single, ‘Sip It,’ and its accompanying music video (which can be seen here).

The newest release from her forthcoming third studio album, ‘End of an Era,’ the tune served as a musical reunion with her ‘KREAM’ co-star Tyga.  Yet, despite the mountain of critical acclaim that rushed the cut upon the drop of its glossy accompanying music video, the femcee took to Twitter to complain it’s not getting its just due.

 

The “far more controversial videos” comment seen above is suspected to be aimed at Lil Nas X, who topped the site’s trending list last week with his clip for ‘Call Me By My Name’ (which featured pole dancing, sacrilegious themes, and a scene of the singer-rapper giving Satan a lap dance).

At writing, Iggy’s YouTube clip has amassed approximately 2.5 million views but the video streaming platform has yet to respond to her accusation of stifling its exposure.

This isn’t the first time Iggy Iggz made headlines for taking on the industry.

In 2019, the ‘Fancy’ hitmaker waxed honest about how she didn’t exactly fancy Spotify’s alleged mistreatment of her ‘In My Defense’ single, ‘Sally Walker.’

    It’s generic as hell, uninspired and unoriginal anyway.

      Im not a fan of rap or anything….and i don’t mind her songs….but this is a reach from her…. You pretty much summed it up: it’s generic….. And as i watched it i also kept wondering why all these videos by really only care to show women barely dressedand having stuff poured over them while twerking….

      • Nomeena April 4, 2021

        Yup. I just watched a few DMX videos from the late 90s to mid 00s, the overall creativity, the lyrics, the videos, the production, it’s all completely missing from today’s generation. It’s sad to see.

    She told no lies

    It’s true… Iggy never shows up in my “Recommended” even though I’m SUBSCRIBED and watch some of her videos/play some of her music pretty frequently. I’d never have known she even had a new video it wasn’t for blogs and looked it up on YouTube myself. Shady af.

    Y’all hate that Iggy Iggy too biggie has a voice. She’s not complacent and just hangs out in the background when she feels that there’s an injustice. Sure, she definitely gets herself into trouble because sometimes she chooses battles she shouldn’t, but this battle is messing with her bags. She has a right. This is her art. And whether y’all like to admit it, she has a point. There are far worse videos on YouTube that will get the recognition, mainly because of payola. It needs to stop.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 April 4, 2021

      Exactly. And she’s independent, funds all her own ish and STILL puts out higher quality visuals than a lot of artists with a major label backing behind them. She deserves a LOT more credit!

      • Melly Mel April 8, 2021

        That b**** is garbage. Money or not she whack. Need to stick to modeling. She got a fat ass. Only thing she got going for her lol I’m sure they all passed her around. Just a video vixen trying to play rappers frfr

    That’s what happens when you don’t have a gay, black or gay black privilege card to use.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 April 4, 2021

      Exactly 💯

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) April 4, 2021

        Shove it dummies. Not everything is about race. Piggy Azalea is just a talentless hack whose mediocrity finally caught up with her. She’ll never have another hit. Just like Trump will never hold public office again. Acceptance is the first step. Happy Easter 💋💋

      • Fancy BISH April 5, 2021

        Everything is about race to the darkies, so yes it is CLOWN.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) April 4, 2021

      And Danzou….maligning black people will NOT make you white, niggà. Stop it. 💋

    Iggy, doll, it’s your fault boo. Why aren’t you heavily posting about the song on your socials? Stop saying everyone else is the problem and realize maybe it’s YOU!!!! Burning bridges with the music industry since 2014. Stupid stupid stupid

    She went after Spotify last year!

  7. J April 4, 2021

    The song is STILL WACK AS F***

    • Carlitos April 4, 2021

      Nah, it’s actually poppin’, especially for her being independent. No other independent artist does it like Iggy.

      • J April 4, 2021

        The s*** is flopping because it’s WACK AS F***

      • Joe Mama April 8, 2021

        😂😂😂 Need to venture out into the world of “music” plenty of actual rappers and emcees that are independent who would s*** on her. She got a big booty that’s all. B**** is whack.

    • J April 9, 2021

      She used to have a major label too. I would hardly call her independent because most artists never got the push she has received in her career.

  8. Joe Mama April 8, 2021

    Nobody rigged a thing. She’s garbage that’s all. Tyga trash bag too. Need to hang it up when it comes to music.
