“I honestly don’t really mind if I’m described as rap or pop. My passion is purely making music and entertaining,” Azalea tweeted.
She added, “Its definitely funny seeing ppl get so emotional over it all. What does it matter? music is music and many enjoy mine, no need to feel upset.”
Nevertheless, Digga has passionate feelings towards what she believes is the lack thereof authenticity behind Azalea’s music and image — blasting her for misappropriating hip-hop culture.
“Because it’s just not real to me. There is a white girl from Australia that spits in an Australian accent, and her name is Chelsea Jane. That I can get into. Teach me Australian Hip-Hop culture,” she said.
She added, “don’t come to America and try to convince me that you’re Gangsta Boo…We’re not going to believe you if you’re trying to convince us that you’re out here trap shooting.”
Digga continued to blast rappers like Azalea for not writing their own music and not truly being hip hop.
“That’s the problem. Their are too many passes being given. When did it become wrong to call out people that don’t write their own rhymes? When did that become a crime in hip-hop?”
She added, “Hip-hop is representative of this—to inform and empower inner city youth. I’m fine with anybody’s race, creed, or color participating, but don’t ever forget what it was created for in the first place.”
