Iggy Says She Saved Hip Hop

Iggy Azalea says she changed the game and saved Hip Hop. Miss Azalea told GQ Magazine that this genre of music didn’t represent people like herself very much so she felt her voice was necessary and feels like she’s brought about change in what’s considered “real hip hop” (Humm I’ll save my opinions until the end lol)

 

See what she said below

GQ: People say some harsh things about you. What helps you bear up under that?

Iggy:   Uh, awards season helps. Anytime where people get to choose who they want to have a voice and they choose me, I just think that makes it worth it. And that gives me the patience to just bite my tongue. When people choose me as the person they think should be speaking for them, I think, Well, I don’t really care what someone in the industry or another artist has to say about it. Your opinion is biased anyway, because you want people to listen to your voice. So having actual people who choose me, it makes me think, I have a place, and I don’t care what other people have to say about it. I was a fan of rap music growing up, and I didn’t feel like there were enough characters that represented me and my situation. So I think it’s needed.

 

 GQ : Fast-forward to the end of your career. What do you want your legacy to be?

 Iggy: You never know how long you’ll be in people’s good graces, especially in this business. So I hope its long—but I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists. So it depends. I might be here for a long time. At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop. And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35 that would be great.

 At some point I was feeling sorry for this chick. I felt maybe she does have a right to be in this industry and be a part of hip hop. But after reading her recent   interviews and statements  my feelings have sifted. Hip Hop is a way of life and culture, yes everyone has a right to express their self in any form but humble yourself when you are embracing a culture. Educate yourself about the history and the makings of the art form. I bet Iggy couldn’t name all the original members of the Wu Tang Clan LOL or  name the artist responsible for and define what the native tongue movement was. My point is when you step inside someone’s home acknowledge them and pay homage.

 

What’s your thoughts people? How do you feel about Miss Iggy Azela saying she saved Hip Hop
