Rappers not only enjoy an exalted status in the world of celebrities, but they get to compose raps about their fellow celebrities, too, in Taylor Swift fashion.
Rap artists are also sought after for their collaboration because this usually triples the money-making potential of a mainstream album like Britney Spears' or Ariana Grande's. But since the world of rappers is still widely considered to be an enclave, it's important to define terms before going into any serious matter about the subject.
After all, rap music and, to a bigger extent, rap culture has a lot of purity hounds that ensure that only the finest qualified rap material comes through for production. As such, the quality control employed by rappers and hip-hop culture members alike is a very stringent measure that tends to oust anything that is not considered hip-hop.
Take, for example, music artist Iggy Azalea's recent experience at the airport. According to HipHopDx, Azalea is thanked by an unidentified camera-wielding man.
"Are you Iggy Azalea? I would like to thank you so much for ruining hip-hop."
The man reportedly trains his camera on Azalea, giggles and then leaves.
