Did anything actually prompt that or did she just decide to beef with Lupe for no reason? Who even cares enough about Lupe these days to hate him?

IIRC Lupe kinda backhandedly defended iggy azalea.

One one hand, the stuff she said w/r/t iggy azalea is largely correct, and her comments on what Kendrick said were largely correct. Otoh she seems to want to be the female version of Charles Hamilton and the times she is right get drowned out by the millions of minor twitter beefs she seems to exist solely to create. Like I think the entirety of the publicity for her last album was her yelling at rappers on twitter.

Also that donglover song was pretty decent. Dude needs to stick to doing that stuff rather than rapping at all.

All Lupe and Kendrick really said about Iggy is that they don't hate the fact she exists and should be allowed to make her music.

Like Iggy is complete trash, but I'm not going to put the responsibility of white privilege on her.
If she wants to make her lovely but Grammy winning music go right ahead. It's not her fault we are where we are at. She's just a byproduct of how screwed up the world is.

Azelia Banks is right too, but she always takes it one tweet/step too far. Like her rant against Iggy was fine, but then she started to defended Bill Cosby.

The issues people have with iggy aren't just about white privilege, but more about cultural appropriation and her aggressively ignorant stance when that's pointed out to her. And when dudes have seemingly tried to actually educate and/or have a dialogue about those things with her, she's dismissed them and often came back with some lame-rear end reverse racism claims.

Added to that, you have the whole thing that's tangentially related in the sjw blogoverse or w/e you want to call it with there being a growing...backlash and/or reexamination of the fact that when there's issues that affect black men, black women nearly always give total support whereas that same support isn't being seen when the roles are reversed.

i really think she's been aware of the issues, doesn't appreciate the condescension and is more fed up with the scrutiny. also she's got a nice rear end but maybe she said the n-word or something i don't really follow her

Actually music is also about culture and it is cultural appropriation with a history intertwined with racial discrimination that is being discussed here, and Iggy doesn't seem to be able to grasp that.

Then again Australia is historically every bit as horrifically racist as the US and Canada with regards to their treatments of the native populations as well so it's not surprising that a rich white Australian model would have a giant blind spot there.

Kendrick doesn't need to address Iggy or Macklemore because he will succeed by his talent. The jaw jacking race pleading with entertainers is bunk and fake activism. Iggy is the lowest rung on the social conflict ladder. If you looking for barely educated rappers to hold political discourse then you have the wrong expectations and probably immature politics.

I wonder what JaRule thinks....

SLR was like 4 years ago though. I'm not sure he has it anymore (which is unfortunate, because that was legit one of the top 5 "whoa" moments I've had listening to rap).

Lasers was a shitshow that I don't blame him for at all, but F&L2 he has to take some of the blame imo, simply because he was doing that super preachy style he's taken to a lot more recently.

But man, SLR...

Seriously, I remember this when it first came out and it is actually the best thing from Tokyo Drift.. the rest of it is really bad. Sort of like eating Skittles for dinner. As far as 'mindless entertainment that is fun but trashy' goes, F&F 1&2 were pretty good. I guess in terms of food they would be... French fries (i'm sorry, I couldn't resist).

e: ok I found some so I'm posting them here in teh NMD raps.. this actually pretty good as far as chick-rap goes (not really my cup of tea but interesting anyways)

On a more serious note, asian hip-hop is real hip-hop. Just think of listening to it as practice. You might think something like this: "If I were ever to get a hot gf, i'd probably have to listen to Taylor Swift or whatever in the car on the way to the coffee shop instead of Mobb Deep, so I might as well get used to to chick rap, as sort of a step in the right direction."

Asian rap is certainly annoying rap for sure, and definitely not as 'tough-guy' as American rap, but it is music with people spitting in the foreground and a bassline in the background. That's the definition of hip-hop, dude. Maybe the best kind of hip-hop is stuff like this, which I know a lot of people love because a lot of famous rappers (Jay-z, Fitty, Nas, Cam'ron, basically any NYC rapper) have made careers out of their various beefs, some more prolifically than others:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu-1y_8m97Y
I don't like to have to prove my 'street credentials' but that is about as hardcore as it gets.

here's another one I used to listen to back in the day a lot:
