Iggy Azalea has been on the minds (and lips) of several of the hottest blogs and magazine editors. Her stock went even higher once she was named XXL’s only female for this year’s Freshman Class. An additional head nod came through from fans when she aligned herself with The KAAANG for the production of her first album slated to drop this year.
But with so much press, there comes controversy.
Immediately after Iggy was announced XXL’s first, Azealia Banks took to her Twitter page to express her dismay about the decision to feature her in the magazine with all considered.
Azealia is referring to Iggy’s song, D.R.U.G.S, where she throws out the following verse:
…tire marks, tire marks. Finish line with the fire marks. When the relay starts, I’m a runaway slave….master. Sh-ttin’ on the past, gotta spit it like a pastor….
While many of Iggy’s fans simply overlooked the verse, several people literally called for her head on a platter. TIP recently spoke out against Azealia Banks in reference to the Iggy jabs. Throughout the attacks, though, Iggy has remained silent about everything…until now.
I recently reached out to Iggy to see if we could, once and for all, get some clarity on the controversial line from her song, and she was more than happy to clear the air.
What many don’t know is that the line from Iggy’s song is from a song called “Look Out for Detox” by Kendrick Lamar, where he recites the same verse that Iggy did at the beginning of D.R.U.G.S (but as you can see, Iggy added her own twist to it). Check out what Iggy had to say about the song & her intentions with the track after the break!
