Feminist Rapper Friday: Iggy Azalea



Australian newcomer Iggy Azalea is kind of a boss! Love the new Toddlers & Tiaras themed video.

  2. Have you seen the newest video? appropriating sex workers. Not cool, unless of course she is/was a sex worker in which case it's cool, but the racist lyrics are a bit shitty too. i was excited when i first heard her, as i was with Azaelia Banks, but too many problems for me between them. imma stick with Uk Female grime rappers! Love the blog btw, been lurking for a long time, great work!

  3. Also, her reply to Eve- also check out Amanda Blank, a white rapper who works with Santogold and MIA, but raps from her own perspective, not a weird mashup of black male thug culture!

  4. "The notion that Iggy Azalea is a feminist needs to get slam dunked into the trash. Unrepentantly using the n-word and calling herself a slave master isn’t feminist, calling bisexual women ‘fake lesbians’ and masculine women d*kes isn’t feminist but like hey cudos to her for that song pu$$y that’s so like #girlpower"
