Anonymous said: why isn't it a problem when m.i.a raps? why is it ok to have chicano rap/asian rap/ etc? But as soon as white people try it you all lose your shit?
That’s so cute and simplistic. Did you work on this question all week or…? No one cares when white people try to rap. We care when they don’t represent their authentic selves or are plain untalented. We don’t care that Eminem is white. He’s not out her performing sonic blackface, despite being from the Detroit Metro Area. Yelawolf sounds like a southern rapper because… he’s a southern rapper. Homeboy is from Alabama. His voice is his. Hell, we didn’t even care about Bubba Sparxxx. Homeboy is from Georgia. Plus, Ms. New Booty is still a bop, so.. *shrugs*
Iggy literally sounds like something out of Malibu’s Most Wanted. Protip: that movie was not a documentary. This sheila is claiming she’s in the “murda bidness”. Homegirl grew up in Mulllumbimby, New South Wales, on a fucking farm. What the fuck was she murdering? Chickens? The hopes and dreams of her parents? What? You tell me. But she is flagrantly being dishonest and unauthentic. She sounds like all the mediocre parts of some of the premiere lady rappers throughout the years. She ain’t as cool in her delivery as Da Brat. She ain’t as raw and bold as Foxy or Trina. She ain’t as cute or skilled as Charli Baltimore. Iggy is what happens when generally mediocre white girls think they deserve to win and people who don’t know better let them.
I get what this post is saying, besides that part at the beginning when you said “white people try* to rap”. But what doesn’t make sense is that just because a white rapper has a voice while rapping, they’re shot down, but the world accepts rappers like Young Thug, for example. Don’t tell me you can’t understand what this dudes saying 75% of the time, and the other 25% it’s the hook. And even then this dude sounds RIDICULOUS. The two things I don’t understand are 1) why he’s accepted and 2) that if a white rapper sounded like Young Thug, he’d get absolutely nowhere in the rap game.
That’s not even in the same league there. Even though Young Thug is vague and hard to enjoy for some, he’s at least a product of his environment.
He’s not born and raised Beverley Hills talking about selling dope and all things considered “urban”. He’s from Bankhead, Atlanta. A pretty rough neighborhood in Georgia.
What this post is saying is that how can Iggy appropriate being so “urban” when she’s from the farms of Australia? When she sounds like an ordinary Aussie one minute, then jumps on the track to sound like “Da Brat” the next? Where’s the authenticity?
It’s all about authenticity with music and she’s unpopular in the public’s eye due that Iggy isn’t real.
white people stay missing the point always fucking a
"sexuality is a choice"
"women wouldn’t get raped if they didn’t wear revealing clothes"
"there are only two genders"
"i’m not trying to be sexist/racist, but.."
"a/bi/pansexuality isn’t real"
"gay people shouldn’t have children"
"i don’t want to be friends with a gay person, they could hit on me"
"you can’t identify with the gender you want to be, only the one you were born with"
