Don’t Come To America And Try To Convince Me That You’re Gangsta Boo”: Rah Digga  On Iggy Azaela
Iggy Azalea, it’s like.,  I can’t really get into her because it’s just not real to me. And not for nothing because people have accents in real life as opposed to when they work. But let me say this to you. There is a white girl from Australia that spits in an Australian accent and her name is Chelsea Jane. That I can get into. Teach me Australian Hip Hop culture. Don’t come to America and try to convince me that you’re Gangsta Boo. She’s a beautiful girl. Capitalize off of the supermodeling thing! But we’re not going to believe you if you’re trying to convince us that you’re out here trap shooting…
This is what I have an issue with because my issue is never with any of the artists and what they bring to the table. My issue is with the higher powers. I don’t consider her Hip Hop. I listen to her album. Everything that I hear on there is everything but that. And I feel like Hip Hop is Hip Hop. The same way they took R&B and okay, for the ones that are considered ‘real’ R&B, we’re going to call them Neo-Soul, so now we can call Ariana Grande R&B. Hip Hop is representative of this: to inform and empower inner city youth. I’m fine with anybody’s race, creed or color participating, but don’t ever forget what it was created for in the first place.”
She also stood with Nicki Minaj in her statements at the BET Awards earlier this year about the importance of women rappers writing their own rhymes.
“There are too many passes being given. Everybody was mad at Nicki for making that comment at BET. This is what I wanna say: When did it become wrong to call out people that don’t write their own rhymes? When did that become a crime in Hip Hop? This is Hip Hop at the end of the day.”
What do you guys think?Do you agree with Rah statement

Go AWF Rah.

You’re looking for love and consistency from inconsistent people who don’t know love. And it’s stealing your hope.

Beyoncé, a.k.a. goddess among mortals slash queen of everything, dropped a surprise album this morning  and guess what? She sampled a TEDx Talk! One of our favorites, actually. It’s a killer talk by author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about gender and femaleness and why we should all be feminists. You can hear the excerpt above in the second verse of ”***Flawless,” bookended by Beyoncé reminding you that she can own it. TEDxEuston, FTW.
