Hmm... Where have we heard this before...
It looks like this friendship is over!
The 8-minute song with Ryan Lewis contains a verse that calls out white artists with a history of ripping off black culture — and the Fancy hitmaker was one of them!
Azalea was called "fake and so plastic" in a series of lines that also dissed Miley Cyrus.
"The culture was never yours to make better / You're Miley, you're Elvis, you're Iggy Azalea / Fake and so plastic, you've heisted the magic/ You've taken the drums and the accent you rapped in/ You're branded 'hip-hop,' it's so fascist and backwards."
The Aussie rapper, who is all too familiar with being blasted for cultural appropriation in the music biz, responded on Twitter — and she seemed to think Macklemore was the fake one:
So, basically Iggy is calling Macklemore the Regina George of music?? LOLz!
We wonder if the 25-year-old's response will prompt Miley to speak out on the song as well — maybe the two can team up and write a
Burn Book song to fire back at Mack! We kid!
In all seriousness, Macklemore's song delves into a much deeper discussion about the Black Lives Matter movement, and Azalea seems to be a casualty for the Thrift Shop performer to get his point across.
But it sounds like she took the diss personally — wouldn't you?
