The Only Thing Iggy Azalea Is Missing Is Some Blackface Paint

I honestly could give a damn about what type of music Iggy Azalea is creating.  What I do care about is the cultural appropriation aspect & how it’s being splashed across the mainstream media (TV, radio, print, internet, etc) as the default for what hip hop & rap music have currently evolved into….or should I say devolved.  With that said, Iggy Azalea is the current standard for how to whitewash a culture.  But then again, can we really blame her?

White girl booty…check!  Hip hop clothing…check!  Mixtape…check!  Cosign from a major Black hip hop artist…check!  Cosign from damn near every media entity from TV to print…check!  Major music awards…check!  Blaccent…check!  Anything missing?  Some blackface makeup…we’ll hold off on that for now….check!

Call me an Iggy hater, I really don’t give a fuck.  But what I do know is, if those within the industry are not careful they’re going to wake up in about 10-20 years and see a culture started BY US & predominately created FOR US is not going to look remotely familiar.  The hip hop culture is going to become so whitewashed that hip hop artists of the future might actually choose to adorn blackface paint to either serve as a reminder of who once created the art or to serve as a reminder of whom the art was stripped away from.  Either way, with pictures like the one posted below circulating the web convincing a brand new generation of hip hop fans that these people are the kings & queens (regardless of if they have any real time in the game) or articles stating how Iggy has “changed hip hop”…it’s only a matter of time.  Remember who originally started rock ‘n roll & who eventually became the king of rock?  Of course you don’t…look it up.  Shit, just go to iTunes RIGHT NOW & see who they have listed as the best Jazz musicians.  But I digress.

Real talk, Iggy has done everything possible to become a part of the hip hop culture except for simply being herself.  So I say, why not slap on some blackface makeup to compliment the blaccent?  Being that hip hop doesn’t have any standards whatsoever presently, I’m sure no one would really give a damn as long as you got the King of the South in your corner….shout out to the Kang…

“2 black eyes….where dey at doe?”

    These type of conversations getting real old. I guess us white folks could say the same about sports, horse hair, and the Nicki Mithot whitcent with the proper pronunciations and sedity overlay..Like Ohmaga. Nobody stole hip hop. Facts, everybody sampled, borrowed, stole, collaborated, and incorporated a little bit of everyone else’s genres of music into their own. Fact, there is no one group of people that invented music or sound. There are basic sounds and they are adapted, changed, and modified over and over and over and over and over…get it? So worried about everyone else and what makes them white and you black who f$%#@^ cares. MOVE ON. If people spent more time thinking about what makes them human instead of whose white, black, and what makes someone the ultimate blackness than a lot more s$%# would be getting done. The only thing that sets hip hop apart from other music is the nasty disgusting lyrics. Put it in your mouth, stick it in your butt, fux the police, fux you, fux myself and your mama, lets have a threesome with my wife and her girlfriend and all 8 of my baby mamas and go shoot some kids while I smoke a blunt and drink prescription drugs till I die. Big booty, big titties, big d#$%, big money, big cars, big guns, big drugs, big criminals. I wouldn’t even tell anyone if I was a hip hop fan it would embarrass me. I feel 30% dumber just having over heard some of this stupid s#@$. And P.S. this garbage is contributing to the decay of society so congrats to you, the “artists”, and the rest of the brain washed.
