Iggy Azalea attempts to justofy Using the “N” Word


nigga – (ethnic slur) offensive name for a Black person.

Synonyms: jigaboo, nigger, nigra, coon, spade
Nigga is used mainly among African Americans, but also among other minorities and ethnicities, in a neutral or familiar way and as a friendly term of address. It is also common in rap music. However, nigga is taken to be extremely offensive when used by outsiders. Many people consider this word to be equally as offensive as nigger. The words nigger and nigga are pronounced alike in certain dialects, and so it has been claimed that they are one and the same word.

noun, Slang: Usually Disparaging and Offensive.

a term used to refer to or address a black person.
alteration of nigger, based on pronunciation

If you ask me and any other like minded person who knows hip hop is NOT represented by this Iggy chick, then you would 100% agree with Azealia Banks who should have had that slot in the XXL Freshman 10 Spot.


Iggy is pop and is being pushed as hip hop in order to further taint true hip hop music. The record of her racist remarks, not only against black people, but yet also Asian and Mexican people have taken the façade she and her management have attempted to keep show as face. Now, she is still going to be loved and adored by those who know nothing of hip hop and it’s origins – the black struggle.

Hip Hop hasn’t lost it’s soul – it has just been made to where ‘most’ of those who make it, with an exception to a few are willing to degrade themselves and their kin for a buck and celebrity status. But, at what cost does this behavior beset our black communities? – Then doors are open for the Iggy types who think they know about black culture because they’ve listened to a few hip hop albums and have a black friend. Black culture is heavily romanticized and we must find a way to keep it’s integrity.

And quote:

“What does Aussie Iggy Azalea know about racism anyway? She comes from Australia, a land that was almost completely populated by Aboriginal peoples until the British Empire imposed political and economic control of the continent .. sound familiar (Native Americans . ) Here in America, her blonde hair and white skin are revered in the media and she is only a benefactor as the music industry uses her (and artists like her) to whitewash hip-hop and take ownership of the culture that people of color has created. Why would she want to say Ni88a anyway? I don’t see her running to use cracker in her rhymes? Oh, I guess because her boyfriend Los Angeles Lakers’ Nick Young is black she deserves a pass? “Ni88a is used to describe someone who is ignorant” … that idiotic statement alone lets me know that you definitely should not use the word. She clearly does not understand it but if she uses it around the “right” person she will have a more legitimate reason not to use it.” – John “Hennry” Harrris

This article sheds light to some artists who refuse to accept her as the new female face of hip hop.
