Iggy Azalea Gets Bashed By Two More Music Superstars

Iggy Azalea just can’t catch a break from the constant barrage of criticism. There was the issue with Azealia Banks that was all over Twitter. Azalea also got a “long hip-hop history lesson” over Twitter from legendary rapper Q-Tip says News One. And now two more hip hop and R&B stars have spoken out against the Australian rapper.

Philadelphia natives, Eve and Jill Scott, appeared on the “Sway in the Morning” and commented on Iggy’s “blaccent,” which many are saying is “cultural appropriation.”

Eve held nothing back when discussing Azalea saying, “She’s representing a group of girls right now as well. And yeah, I think people right now are too quick to give too many accolades to new people…That’s the one thing I just can’t stand. Let her do her thing. It’s not my cup of tea, but she’s representing for somebody.”

Then Scott jumped in to back up Eve’s assessment by saying, “It’s a little challenging for me, because I come from the era that she pulled from…To me, it’s a mixture of Da Brat and Eve, the way that it sounds. That’s what it sounds like to me…it [the tone of her voice] also sounds like a big bite to me.”

While the two Philly songstresses were quick to criticize, they offered some suggestions to Azalea, saying she should “channel her Australian heritage into her lyrics, rather than allegedly copying black female emcees.”

So how does Iggy feel about this verbal blast? Azalea took to Twitter to defend herself. According to the Grio, Azalea said “‘people’ who haven’t met her want her to be a stereotype in order to make ‘them’ feel more comfortable.”

While Iggy sure did seem to have a lot to say in response to Eve and Jill Scott’s comments, her mentor, rapper T.I., jumped in to comment, too.

T.I. told TMZ that Iggy needs to stop the Twitter battles and commenting and that she needs to “focus on what got her here.”

That seems to be some sounds advice for Iggy Azalea as I’m sure more and more people will have something to say about the Australian rapper and her career.
