Rapper Talib Kweli Disses Iggy Azalea, Praises Eminem For Respecting Hip Hop Culture

Remy Gelenidze

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have just released new song “White Privilege II” that  is a follow up to the original “White Privilege” released back in 2005. The song analyzes a variety of race issues from the perspective of a white person who wants to join the anti-racist struggle.

Get the song on iTunes

In a song Macklemore raps:

“The culture was never yours to make better. You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea. Fake and so plastic, you’ve heisted the magic.”

As it seems Iggy Azalea took it as an insult and Talib Kweli is angry about it and to defend his point, mentioned Eminem


In the first part of the song, that was released back in 2005, Macklemore references Eminem:

“The face of hip-hop has changed a lot since Eminem. And if he’s taking away black artists’ profits, I look just like him”
