Saying Black people are not a monolithic group is a very black thing to say...
OK. Having taken a few days to understand this situation:
She's passionate. Cool. She cares. Cool. She is talking about very sensible things and I absolutely share her sentiments re: IGGY, T.I, and the sooner both aren't relevant the better for me.
Azaelia, you RAP, but your sound ISN'T Hip Hop! FACT. So, when you fly off to Switzerland, or England etc, and make euro pop rap, to try to get with those Euro cats (who aren't black and are known to be more racist than white Americans), don't forget that the streets is watching. We agree with you but we won't get double played by you.
Oh shit! Lol
J.Cole is himself White... Well, half-White. So...
It's true, Jazz is mostly white but ultimately good music is what matters. Basketball was invented by a White man but it's a predominantly Black sport now, and I don't remember hearing/seeing White complain about it.
Let's just enjoy good music!
Ironically Azealia Banks' music sounds more techno/dance/edm than Iggy Azealia's. Therefore, her music is more likely to appeal to Caucasians than typical African people.
Even though I'm not an Iggy Azealia's fan but I must admit her album does sound more Hip-Hop than Azealia Banks' " Broke with Expensive Taste" project.
Ranting isn't going to help, Banks needs to keep honing her craft and strategize to make her music more accessible.
