Azealia Banks is ridiculously

Azealia Banks is ridiculously talented. One of the best rappers I've heard in a while, her flow is SICKENING!! And she sings like Lauryn Hill. The fact that she is beautiful is just icing on the cake. She is a breath of fresh air in an industry filled with Iggys...

I'm Female, 22, and just this

I'm Female, 22, and just this Christmas had a brief encounter with a mature man. It was wonderful. We met via internet dating on this site: ---[Mi XedM α TCHing. C óM ]-It's where black white sing-les looking for someone to enjoy their lifestyle with. Come in and stay a while. Complete your profile. Post a message, a picture of yourself and check out the photo galleries. Give it a try, you will find someone you like here - ;) a good way to meet like-minded people, and he actually approached me first. It just so happens I like black man and he likes whtie woman around my age. We had an amazing day and later on he joined me at a hotel. It was like a fantasy come true. Amazing company, amazing sex too and a really warm and loving man. He will turn 36 this month, and my goodness what a connection we had that day. You could meet her/him at *** --- m'i'x'ed M'A'T'C'H' i n 'g '_c(0)m---

I actually went to HS with this girl... I can't believe it. I had to do a double take at the screen. I didn't really know here but she was never really "humble". She has an AMAZING voice so idk WHY she isn't singing :/ To each its own i guess....... I still can't get over this *dumbfounded*

Hmm. I think I like it. It

Hmm. I think I like it. It slaps and her voice is unique. I mean I *prefer* ladies who rap without the materialism, raunch and posery, but theres room for everybody. I'll wait for Lauryn reloaded.... one day.... Let the girl live. I'm more worried about people who really, truly hate Black people and actually HARM them (ie, Zimmerman, KKK members, Bill O'Reilly, NYPD, etc) than this lil white girl with a dream who obviously admires and adores us. Give me a break. And the way she talks in quite an anomoly but I don't think she sounds black. Odd maybe... but not Black - whatever that means anyway. Have you not heard PLIES speak in regular conversation????? He raps like he has marbles in his mouth and didn't get past 4th grade! Yet in interviews he sounds like Thurgood Marshall. Explain THAT to me. LOL. Lastly, I can't get with Azalea Banks. And she was at Paris fashion week? Ok..... She can spit but what she's saying makes no sense to me. All her songs leave me scratching my head. And her use of the words p*ssy, c*nt, n*gga, and whatever else she's saying EVERY SINGLE BAR is not entertaining. Just my 2 cents...

Heard Iggy's song on Sway's

Heard Iggy's song on Sway's show this morning... Like the song, but agree with the caller that said Hip Hop is officially dead. I know that there's no business like show business, but DAMN! Australian with a Southern accent... Drawl and all?!? Rappers that are actors who wanna be rappers... Wow!!!! (in my Flavor Flav voice) Gives new meaning to Paul Mooney's statement, ”Everybody wanna be a n*=!@” , but don't nobody wanna be a n*=!@”... (ijs)

lol I'm so tired of people

lol I'm so tired of people claiming that every caucasion who talks "black" is trying to be something they are not. It's just as stupid as caucasion people saying a black person who talks "white" is trying to be something they are not. I guess it's too hard to fathom that EVERYONE comes from different walks of life and it shapes who you are, and yes, sometimes, even how you speak. Iggy was born in Australia to a hard life and she left at a very young age ON HER OWN to pursue rapping in NYC ON HER OWN. As a child she ALWAYS admired and was influenced by hip-hop, particularly Tupac as she has mentioned repeatedly in interviews. Her flow was consciously modeled after his starting at a very young age, and now she's come into her own. There is nothing fake or "forced" about being inspired by artists that you admire, or following your dreams DESPITE the fact that you don't fit the mold. #simpleminds
hellogoodbye's picture

You said she finally came

You said she finally came into her own...really? A hard life doen't mean the same thing all over the world just so you know so I'm not quite sure how an american accent with a southern drawl is coming into your own...it may be modeling like a mutha f# but it's definitely not coming into your own. So when I think of Iggy I def think fake and I def think forced. She talks alot about bangin' for a chick that comes from a country where crime is less that 2%. #fail #wankster ...lol

I don't understand why black

I don't understand why black peps will forgive her slave master comment, that was disrespectful and uncalled for, its obvious that she emulating black culture and she needs to understand she cannot use those terminologies jst in case she's. Forgotten she isn't black.

I wasnt offended when i heard

I wasnt offended when i heard the line because I understood that she wasnt saying that she is a runaway slave master but that she saying that she is a master of the runaway flow, the superfast flow. I think people were too hard, she felt the backlash and apologized for whatever misconception the line caused

@ black british 11:16 am

@ black british 11:16 am It's called ART. People say all types of things. If you're easily offended Rap is not for you. People say so many things that if you get easily offended it makes little sense to be into hip hop. I find a lot of things offensive like the constant misogyny and the sexism but there is so much to choose from that you don't have to deal with any music that is offensive to your particular sensibilities. Rapper also use things like the N-Word etc....again you don't have to listen if you don't like something but I always look for deeper messages and a lot of rappers have layers. Some really don't but many do.

@furious styles, I don't

@furious styles, I don't agree wiv the N word used by rappers they claim the word has a diff meaning when we all know that's a lot of bs, and this is a lil diff, u can't emulate a culture on one hand and disrespect its peps on the other hand, and it makes it worse that a white rapper is saying this, it not cool and there is no amount of explaining that can make me accept this, and that is the problem with blacks, always accepting the BS.

her boyfriend is black, her bestfriend for years is black, her boss and most of her coworkers its black. Can u drop the she is a racisit shit now? Its obvious she admires and reveres black culture. That was a mistake, she has apologized so lets move on

Im happy For Iggy I love her

Im happy For Iggy I love her new song and I believe she is going in a positive direction with ti and interscope. As far as the "slave... master" line people failed to realize that they sounded equally ignorant saying "she's hot for a white girl" or "she is just another white rapper" many people go around using becky and shit with no problem thats basically saying only white girls suck dick. regardless i love Iggy's new song and cant wait till her album drops

its 2012 we can't talk about

its 2012 we can't talk about murder business we did that in the 80's and 90s people are hungry for conscious music that sounds good ala kanye west ala common (but sound better) the people are hungry for substance. i wish i could sing/rap. i have a lot to say!!! make you think about some things. let someone rap about trayvohn martin or barack obama or the high gas prices and people struggling. I want to support substance!!
