2014 iHeartRadio Music Festival - Night 2

Those in glass houses should not throw stones, Macklemore.

The rapper is taking aim at white artists (especially Miley Cyrus and Iggy Azalea) for appropriating black culture while ignoring the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Seattle rapper just released “White Privilege II”, a song that questions a lot of white artists motivations for music making- and he also shines a light on himself. In the song’s 2nd verse he says:

“You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea
Fake and so plastic, you’ve heisted the magic
You’ve taken the drums and the accent you rapped in
You’re branded hip-hop, it’s so fascist and backwards
That Grandmaster Flash’d go slap it, you bastard

(Via TMZ)

Though he’s implicating himself, Iggy Azalea’s not having it! And honestly, I kinda get where she’s coming from. She tweeted, “he shouldn’t have spent the last 3 yrs having friendly convos and taking pictures together if those were his feelings.”

The whole song covers a LOT of issues with the caucasian role in African American issues. Check it out HERE!
