Macklemore just released a new song called “White Privilege II” in which he disses Iggy Azalea and Miley Cyrus for appropriating black culture, and now the rapper is responding.
“You’ve exploited and stolen the music, the moment,” Macklmore raps on the new song. “The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toy with / 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,” he continues.
Iggy took to her Twitter account to respond to a fan who asked if she had heard the song.
“he shouldnt have spent the last 3 yrs having friendly convos and taking pictures together at events etc if those were his feelings,” Iggy said.
