Iggy Azalea Responds To Kendrick Lamar’s Encouragement
Iggy Azalea appears to respond to Kendrick Lamar’s comments about her in Billboard last week.
After spending much of 2014 as one of the most divisive artists in Hip Hop, Iggy Azalea has already continued to make headlines for her place in the culture early in the New Year.
Speaking with Billboard for a new cover story, Kendrick Lamar recently publicly encouraged the Australian rapper to keep “doing her thing” and received backlash from the likes of Azealia Banks and others for separate comments he made about the state of the Black community in the context of the killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson last year.
“She’s doing her thing,” Lamar said of Iggy Azalea. “Let her. People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they at. Do your thing, continue to rock it, because obviously God wants you here.”
On Friday, the same day a preview of Kendrick’s cover story was released, Azalea alluded to the comments vaguely in her own Tweets.
