"Is it fair to tar Iggy and Maclemore with the same brush?"


          

Maclemore is just a very successful white rapper. He grew up with hip-hop (like most white okp's) and has been rapping for years. He doesn't affect a blaccent or engage in gangster posturing. He is what he is.

He's not an industry-created puppet either.

He's a completely different kind of animal.

See I think everyone is fine with a Macklemore type until white media fawns over them and act like they invented hip-hop.

The thing is that isn't Macklemore's fault and he is keenly aware of it happening and is even apologetic about it (probably too much).

Eminem is very much the same way.

The rule for white rappers is you have to be humble.

I don't understand the fixation with this Barbie Doll though. If you want her to go away, just ignore it. Personally I am pretty indifferent toward her. I have heard more annoying in my life.

That is how it worked out last year. Doing less traveling in the States, just the odd short trip. I get a lot of work in So Cal so not much traveling for that. Then spend a few months in Colombia and another month dipping around randomly. Last year did Sint Maarten, Peru and some other lil shit.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I dont think people are... I also don't think it's fair to come down on a girl who arrived and has only lived in the souf from 16yrs old on about her accent.. But people will accept a story from a Canadian kid who got his accent over a couple summers in memphis?

People are all over the place...

Ultimately there is one thing that is true.. Amethyst not acknowledging her privilege is really the only issue.. She cant change her height or hip to waist ratio but she can say yes that shit helped me get ahead or something..

EDIT: This board alone proves why she is as big as she is... critical thinkers cant help but dissect her constantly and the masses done care as long as the music is good and her ass stays hanging out.. makes for a pretty powerful thing and everyone keeps talking

Iggy don't give a shit.

Not sure how anyone can look at that Wayans looking white girl and demand she pay homage...

She is Australian for fucks sake. What do you expect?

he tries too fucking hard and is way too earnest to be believed and is immensely punchable and his music is annoying as all hell.

Iggy is different - she sucks b/c her music isn't good and she can't rap well or perform well in a live setting.

pretty different.

fuck you.

Dude is just being himself and made some good music. He can rap and his production is top notch for being an independent. That whole twitter thing to Kendrick was lame but that's about it. Macklemore is definitely not in the same category as Iggy. If anyone has been listening before "The Heist", then they'd realize he'd been on the same shit for years. He just happened to hit with his latest release.
