Iggy Azalea Responds To Macklemore’s White Privilege II Diss — And She’s NOT Happy About The Backstabbing!

no title

It looks like this friendship is over!

In his new song White Privilege II, Macklemore addressed cultural appropriation — and Iggy Azalea isn’t happy about it.

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.

Macklemore raps on the track:

“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?
