Rah Digga Doesn’t Consider Iggy Azalea Real Hip-Hop
Female MC Rah Digga isn’t a big fan of Iggy Azalea. The former Flipmode Squad member recently spoke with ThisIs50 about the current state of the rap game and she let it be known that she doesn’t like her music.
“Iggy Azalea, I can’t really get into her. Because it’s just not real to me,” said Digga. “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… We’re not going to believe you if you’re trying to convince us that you’re out here trap shooting.”
Digga explained how she felt where Nicki Minaj was coming from when she gave her infamous shady speech at the 2014 BET Awards.
“That’s the problem. They’re too many passes being given,” said Digga. “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?”
The rapper went on to add that she doesn’t consider Iggy hip-hop. She claims that, “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.”
