Snoop Dogg may have possibly outed Australian rapper Iggy Azalea as a racist.
It all started with a harmless meme Snoop posted onto his IG account as a joke two weeks ago. The photo posted featured an albino person of African descent.
“IGGY AZALEA NO MAKE UP,” the meme read.
The meme didn’t sit too well with Iggy Azalea.
“@snoopdogg why would you post such a mean pic on insta when you send your body guards to ask me for pictures every time we are at shows together?” she wrote. “My bodyguard stopped the fire truck that saved your friends life in canada when he almost burnt down the hotel.
“And every time I’ve spoken to you, you’ve always been nice as hell,” she continued. “I’m disappointed you’d be such an a-- for no reason.”
Lord Jamar suggested Iggy was upset due to the person in the meme possessing strong African features during an interview with Vlad TV.
“What’s mean about it?” Jamar questioned. “That you’re being compared to an African woman who happens to be an albino? If he would’ve picked some Scandinavian beauty and put ‘Iggy Azalea no make-up’ would she have been mad?’” he continued. “Or was it the fact that this woman had features that she deems ugly.’ That European that Eurocentric outlook would look at as ugly. And because she got compared to that, she has a problem.
“So it’s okay to use black music and certain aspects and characteristics of black things, but to be compared to an Africanized Albino… a woman that has African features but has your same skin color, you have a problem with that,” he said.
T.I. allegedly discovered Iggy and serves as her black co-sign. He came to her defense during a Complex interview after the racist accusations erupted throughout social media.
“That p-sses me off,” he said. “Simply because they don’t have any real substantial grounds. ‘I don’t like them.’ Why? ‘Just cause.’ What you mean ‘just cause?’ Since when do you get the right to judge people? Who died and made you the emperor of Egypt? That kind of sh-t and then the things that they accuse her of, like the racist stuff. That’s not even her. That’s not even in her. …Me knowing her, knowing where she comes from, for real, the whole racist thing, that’s American–we forget, she’s not American. So the whole Black, white, color divided thing, it isn’t a part of her DNA like it is here in America.
“It’s just ignorant to me. In this day and age, to be a race of people who are demanding equality and speaking out on injustices and wanting to be treating fairly, to stand up and do the exact same thing in opposite to someone unwarranted for no reason, it’s hypocritical,” he continued. “I’ma ride with her. So, ya’ll go ahead. Anybody got a problem with it just know, it gon’ be one cause I’m coming.”
T.I. also defended Iggy in an interview with The Grio.
“She is a white rapper, but she’s also a phenomenally talented and gifted performer,” he said. “I think that in this day and age… 2014, color, race, creed, gender… for us to use those stereotypical things to separate us or use it as an excuse to not like something… I think that makes you a whack person.”
T.I. was wrong when he stated racism is only an American trait.
Iggy Azalea admitted to coming from a racist Australian background during an interview with Sway In The Morning.
“I love Australia, but I do think there a lot of Australians that I think have unfair stereotypes about aboriginal people,” she said. “The thing about aboriginal people and why I think it’s very difficult for them is because they don’t live in an enclosed structure like a house. They sleep under the stars and that’s how they live. For us to come in western civilization and we make them fit into our confines of what we think is civilized. The government will build them housing and think that they’re helping them and take all the beds and sleep outside because that’s they’re culture. Ignorant people think that they’re savages or create these negative stereotypes about them but it’s really just Western civilization.”
The strong African features the albino woman possessed that Iggy found issue with in Snoop’s IG are shared by the aboriginal people of Australia. The same aboriginal people Iggy spoke about in her Sway interview were enslaved and nearly exterminated by the British Empire in Australia in the 19th and early 20th century. Today, whites comprise more than 90 percent of the Australia’s population.
Iggy has long been accused of racism due to her stereotypical antics.
Despite being from Australia, Iggy has gone on to adopt black dialect in her music.
In song “D.R.U.G.S,” Iggy likened herself to a slave master, rapping, “Tire marks, tire marks, finish line with the fire marks/When the relay starts I’m a runaway slave-master.”
Iggy’s antics continued with several questionable Twitter posts.
She once joked that Mexican women have funny shapes.
“B*tches in la be stick skinny. To the bone. White, black, Mexican… Okay… So maybe not mexican :s they still got the box body on lock,” she wrote.
She also joked about five men she saw get arrested in front of a Popeye’s restaurant.
Nicki Minaj has her issues with Iggy. She believes racism has a lot to do with the “Fancy” rapper’s success.
“racism is alive & well
“some people have to put in work. others get to cut corners. we see it but don’t say it. welcome to the real world,” she wrote.
Iggy Azalea isn’t the first pop star who has been accused of being a racist.
Justin Bieber’s inner racism was revealed following the leak of two videos showing the pop star spewing off racially insensitive remarks directed at African Americans.
One video showed the “Baby” singer telling friends a racially insensitive joke.
“Why are black people afraid of chainsaws,” he asks friends.
“Run n-gger, n-gger, n-gger,” he answers.
The second video released shows Bieber remixing his own song “One Less Lonely Girl” to “One Less Lonely N-gger.” In his remix, Bieber sings about joining the KKK and killing black people.
Eminem was even discovered spewing hate in his music.
The Source Magazine was able to produced older music by Em in 2013, which included songs “So Many Styles” and “Foolish Pride.”
The Detroit native used the N Word in “So Many Styles,” rapping, “And all the girls that I like to bone/Have the big butts, no they don’t/Cause I don’t like that n-gga sh-t.”
In “Foolish Pride,” he refers to black girls as “b-tches,” rapping, “Black girls and white girls just don’t mix/Because black girls are dumb and white girls are good chicks/White girls are good/I like the white girls, I like the white girls all over the world/White girls are fine and they blow my mind/And that’s why I’m here now telling you this rhyme/Cause black girls, I really don’t like/We don’t mix, it’s like riding a bike/When you’re peddling hard, uphill both way.”
It should be noted that Iggy and Eminem are two of three artists nominated for Hip Hop awards at the upcoming AMAs.
