Talib Kweli and Iggy Azalea Get Into Heated Argument Over Macklemore Song [Pics]


Macklemore had everyone talking over the recent release of his latest single, “White Privilege II,” where he raps, “The culture was never yours to make better /You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea.”

Iggy Azalea quickly took to Twitter where she responded to the song by telling a fan that she was confused that Macklemore would mention her in the song when he was friendly with her when they saw one another in public.

Iggy’s response caught the attention of rapper Talib Kweli, who called Iggy out for letting the meaning of Macklemore’s song go completely over her head.

A few hours later, Iggy responded to the conscious Brooklyn-born rapper by continuing to defend herself against his cultural appropriation/white privilege claims.

The conversation led to a heated back and forth between the two and helps shed light on the stance Iggy chooses to take on more political and socioeconomic issues affecting the Black community.

Poor Iggy can’t seem to catch a break. But we doubt this recent altercation leads to record sells for the struggling “pop-rap” artist.
