Iggy Azalea Responds To Jill Scott And Eve’s Blaccent Diss
Via Billboard reports:
After Jill Scott and Eve weighed in on the ongoing discussion of cultural appropriation in hip-hop last week and targeted Iggy Azalea’s “blaccent” as an example of her lacking originality, the Australian rapper has responded.
Posting to Twitter on Wednesday (Jan. 28), Azalea suggested unnamed people — presumably Scott and Eve — just feel uncomfortable with who she is and would rather try to pin her to Australian stereotypes than accept this as real. She also offered advice to her young fans: “Be as complex and multidimensional and interesting as you possibly can.”
Speaking with Shade 45’s Sway in the Morning, Scott said she felt Azalea’s style was a “big bite” of Da Brat and Eve and that made it “challenging” for her to like.
She and Eve agreed Azalea isn’t “original,” before labeling her rapping style as a “Blaccent.”
“She’s from a different place and I’ve said this before, it would be dope to hear her with her swag,” Eve said. “Who are you, what are you, what is that?”
Do you think Eve and Jilly from Philly had a point about Iggy’s fake accent? Hit the flip to see what else Iggy had to say as well as Jill’s response to Igloo’s rant next….
