Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora Climb Charts With “Black Widow”

I haven’t heard too many spider-inspired hip-hop songs (like ever), but Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora’s “Black Widow” has definitely crawled into our web-o-verse and is here to stay. The ladies replicate a venomous spider in the song, seeking revenge on a lover who has lost interest. “You should’ve known better / Than to mess with me, honey / I’m gonna love ya / Like a black widow, baby!” sings […]

J.Lo, Iggy Get a Big “Booty” In Sexy New Remix (Listen)

As if in response to Nicki Minaj’s massive “Anaconda” booty attack dominating MTV’s Video Music Awards, Jennifer Lopez (who once had the most famous derriere in the world) and Iggy Azalea have released their own big bums in a fun remix of “Booty”. “Big big booty, what you got a big booty.” This feels like a batter-up dare to all the ladies currently tossing their lobes on stage – yes, that […]


Beyonce Drunk In Love

Beyoncé Leads MTV Video Music Award Nominations

Iggy Azalea, Eminem not far behind

Who is taking home a moon man this August?  It’s that time of year again when MTV takes over our living rooms and mobile devices with one of the liveliest awards shows in Tinseltown, the MTV Music Video Awards!  This year, Beyoncé leads the pack with eight straight nominations including the highly coveted Video of the Year for “Drunk In Love”.  She is also up for Best Female and Best […]

T.I. and Iggy (and Azealia Banks) Don’t Want “No Mediocre”

When it comes to women, T.I. lets it be known in his new single that he wants “No Mediocre”.  T.I.’s southern twang tossed over Brazilian steel drums sounds like butta. Only drawback, Mr. Tip’s lyrics are a bit tooo simple: “Right hand in the air, I solemnly swear / I never f**k a b**ch if she don’t do her hair”.  Sounds like something out of a kindergarten playground, instead of […]


Iggy Azalea The New Classic

Iggy Azalea Slays, Takes Top Two Slots on Hot 100 Charts

“First thing’s first, I’m the realest.”  The next line of “Fancy” should have gone “Southern white female rapper finna steal this.” Numbers don’t lie, and guess who topped the Hot 100 charts last week?  Yup, that would be Iggy Azalea. “Fancy” (feat. Charlie XCX) is currently the No. 1 song in the country on Billboard HOT 100 chart. This bad Australian b**ch is definitely in the murda bidness. While she […]


Iggy Azalea The New Classic

Iggy Azalea “The New Classic”—Album Review

Mercury/Island Def Jam (2014)

I’m not gonna lie: seeing Iggy Azalea, 23, re-enact Cher in Clueless in her video for hit single “Fancy” made me exceptionally happy.  Iggy being a white female rapper (from Australia) also made me happy.  She is pretty much the Macklemore of female rappers as far as novelty goes, and her flow sounds a bit like his uneven patterns—she’s just a bit rustier.  Guest Charli XCX stole the show on […]

Welcome to your Weekly Mixtape September 29, 2012–a collection of handpicked tracks for your hip-hop listening/viewing pleasure.   Shyne, “Fred Hampton (50 Cent Diss)” You know what? It’s been a while since 50 Cent has been involved in a good, old-fashioned beef. Like Superman and the light of a yellow sun, Curtis Jackson cannot tap the true nature of his powers without the acrimony of his fellow MCs. Fortunately, this […]
