Iggy Azalea is truly working her ass off right now. After being named the first female rapper for XXL’s Freshman Class, you’d think that many women who are also trying to blaze a trail would at least put a lighter up in her honor.
At the time of the announcement, however, everybody was not seeing it for Iggy, and Azealia Banks made no bones about her
envy lack of enthusiasm for the Australian rap artist.
During an interview with DJ Drama, The KAAANG and Iggy dished about everything from how they began working together, choosing labels, and of course, female empowerment in the rap game.
This is my day and it’s my achievement. You have to work to have your own achievements, with all due respect. Instead of worrying about who else is on there, you should just be happy that I’m on there as a woman for women, and if you want to have your own achievement, work and have your own achievement. I can’t take what’s meant for you and you can’t take what’s meant for me.
But when asked to discuss Azealia Banks and her previous comments about Iggy’s XXL cover, TIP took a moment to chime in.
Strategically if she really cares about a freshmen cover maybe she could hope that she’ll suck enough to get shelved and then next year when the freshmen cover comes back around, maybe she’ll still be a freshman. If you spend half of your day getting money and the other half of your day counting money, you ain’t got no time in your day to worry about nobody else.
Of course, Azealia hops on twitter to come for The KAANG. After the break, check out what Azealia had to say plus the interview (TIP addresses Azealia in part III)! Interesting indeed!
