Chuck D Calls Out Iggy Azaela For Racist Photo That Is Proven To Be Fake

(AllHipHop News) Fake or real, Chuck D is against all forms of racism. Last night (July 9th), Chuck D responded to an altered photograph of Iggy Azaela calling Drake, B.O.B. and T.I. her “n*ggas”.

The photo of Azaela with the three rappers originally appeared on B.O.B.’s Facebook page in 2012 to promote Azaela’s  “M.D.M. (Million Dollar Misfits)” collaboration with T.I. and B.O.B. The photo reappeared recently with the caption “Me and my n*gga’s” and Chuck D found offense in the post, even after realizing it was fake:

Azaela has been alleged to be a racist since her 2012 song “D.R.U.G.S” which consisted of a lyric that likened the Australian-born rapper to a “runaway slave master”. In a recent interview with The Guardian, she addressed how dating Los Angeles Lakers’ star Nick Young made the racist allegations harder for her to endure:

Getting the word racist put on me sucked. And it’s hurtful forother people to have to hear it (she nods in the direction of the boyfriend, who is buttering a crumpet). And it is hurtful for other people’s families to have to hear it. I think people seriously need to rethink that word. We are very liberal in flinging it around and it is pretty fucking heavy

Check out the full Guardian piece here.

    Chuck is right in the larger picture but he needs to take her name out of it. It was a fake picture so there is no “Iggy Thing”. There is definitely a CORPlantation structure that needs to be exposed and discussed but we gotta be fair about how we talk about it.

    • LOL

      Iggy is racist, she even dissed her own country in the billboard article!

      “We get so caught up, especially in rap, with what’s authentic, and I
      wish people would think more about what the f- that even means,” says
      Azalea, 24. “One critic was like, ‘Why didn’t you talk about more
      Australian things?’ I don’t understand why I’m supposed to write a song
      about living in the outback and riding a kangaroo to be authentic.”

      • B.U.

        What’s racist about that????

  • I think Chuck D should start his own label, break those CORPlantation chains and set new trends.

    • Casor_Greener

      he must be dropping an album soon

  • Escobar

    Most female from left to right. Lol — Really though, Chuck’s on point and it’s just spoken truth. Don’t let this slide anymore and mount up.

  • southside4lyfe

    The bitch is racist go look at her twitter when she was ranting on T.I. she was being very racist

  • SupaDoopaGhost1

    Chuck needs to chill. He sounds like he’s mad that no one cared about Public Enemy since 1989.

    Get em Chuck.

  • TheOnlyCoop

    Chuck needs to Chill. People will co-sign him even though he’s jumping out there based on a fake picture. Sorry Chuck you’re and OG but you take a “L” for this.

  • Markus

    Even if the picture is fake there is a problem that’s been in place for a very long time not only in entertainment but all through the African American community. Black people remain the only culture of people who “adopted” the racial slur used by their oppressors and are ignorant enough to explain the word’s new endearing meaning. The sad thing is this will never change. Actually now some white people have been welcomed by African Americans to use the word in that “friendly”manner. And that’s the most disrespectful thing that could happen.

    • Weedras

      same shit i’ve noticed.. blatant hypocrisy…

  • RichFromBX

    I wish people were this outraged over actual racism and not some made up shit.

    I’m sorry but that new KFC commercial and all of the Popeye’s commercials are straight racist and motherfvkers can’t spend their money fast enough in there but the second someone white says “nigga” not even the actual bomb itself and it’s as if the worst thing in the world just happened.

    • Weedras

      i always thought to myself why the fxck they have a black person talk about the fried chicken its as if it won’t sell unless a black person is plugging it smh… i went away to the middle east the other day and they were playing hip hop in a club and to hear the Arabs singing these hoes aint loyal and talking bout a rich n*gga i just had to shake my head… rappers promote that shit and in places such as the mideast they think its ok to use as a term of endearment…

    • The_Good_Life

      You must be twelve years old. Go watch all the episodes of roots then recalculate.

      • RichFromBX

        if the word is that terrible, then is shouldn’t be used in any context…but again, ignore the real racism and focus on this crap and continue to bitch that nothing changes…

      • The_Good_Life

        C’mon my dude. You citing racism in Fried Chicken commercials as real racism…

      • RichFromBX

        when you put black people on TV saying “mmm, mmm, this fried chicken sho’ good, I can’t gets me enough of it” and it’s white people making the decisions on the advertising, then yeah, it’s safe to call it racist…

  • Weedras

    you what i never understand about Black American culture, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and other hispanics and latinos get “passes” for saying n*gga why the fxck is this?! its that type of hypocrisy i have to look at and question if ppl just pick who they’re going to pick on to chastise…. the fxckin usage of the word just creates an environment of hypocrisy no other friggin minority uses a slur as a term of endearment, i’ve never heard hispanics using slurs to address each other but they don’t hesitate to address each other as n*gga… smh… this is why in the grand scheme of things the fight against racism and prejudice on the part of the african America is so contentious because we’re so fxcking hypocritical…

    • therealjjohnson

      because during the slave trade, Africans were shipped there too. It wasn’t just america. We share the same bloodlines and ancestors with Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, etc. Slaves were dropped all up and down the coast.

      • Weedras

        OK, tell a Puerto Rican or Dominican that… the same Dominicans who are in support of a law deporting their fellow citizens who have haitian heritage even though they don’t have family in Haiti, the same Dominicans who have gone to great extent to develop methods of perming to hide their african heritage or who have bleached their skin to hide it also… the same Dominicans and Puerto ricans who frown upon family members who date a black person… these same people who more identify with Latin america and Spain than the rest of the west indies around them… some of them even think they’re european and you think because of slavery they should get a ‘pass’ aren’t there whites with African blood and blacks with Caucasian heritage too?

      • therealjjohnson

        I hear you, but I cant speak to all that. Im just answering your original question. You asked why, and that is the reason. You made a very general statement and I gave a very general response. I cant speak for everyone because everyone has their on set of beliefs and opinion about the N word as well as the points you brung up. There will never be “one” answer because we’re talking about more than one person. Peace.

      • Leo Heem

        It has nothing to do with race, its the American Culture. If the Puerto Rican, Dominican, Mexican. Black, Asian, Indian, White, etc,etc was raised in the hood or hip hop they have been influenced by the word as a term of endearment. Think about it, If you have best friends that you’ve know since you can remember and have been through everything together and trust each other 100%, they know when they say nigga, its all love. It all has to do with trust, if someone they don’t know of another race say it, they don’t know in what context they are saying it. They don’t know them enough to know if their heart says it with love or hate. Likewise when surfers or rockers of any race including black, say dude to each other and then comes a thug that says HEY DUDE. Are they dissin? Most likely they will think, yes. When you say Hispanics identify with white Spaniards, that’s the culture they’re influenced by. Now when it comes to the media, that’s completely different. Hip Hop has taken over, so now everyone wants to partake in the culture including the use of the word. But since it’s public other cultures that are offended by the word will fight against using it. And those that use it but don’t want other races to use it, is because they don’t know how they are using it, again because of trust. They don’t know you. In my opinion, the day that all white people have redeemed themselves and can finally be trusted, only then can they publicly say it.

      • El Dogga

        People were selling their own people. But hell, I’d sell you three fools for a pair of jordans and a fitted! lol!

      • Joshua Session

        Those Jordans can buy you a lot of books, which you will need because you don’t know history by saying stupid shhh like that.

      • therealjjohnson

        I’m confused as to why everyone always brings up Jordan’s in matters such as these as if to say there is something wrong with owning or liking a particular brand of shoe. Guess what, I have a lot of Jordan’s. I have also have a lot of dress slacks, dress shoes, books, reading materials etc. Nothing wrong with people buying what they like and can afford.

        I find it kinda offensive that “we” racially profile our own people over a gym shoe. Like people are somehow of a lower class or lower way of thinking because they “stand in line” for Jordans. This isnt directed at you per se. I dont want it to come off as me attacking you (not my intent) But i just see that thrown around so much and today it struck a nerve.

        Peace.

      • El Dogga

        Mannnnnnnn shut your ol’ fake a** Malcolm Y, Martin Loser King Jr. a** up!

        It was a joke you baboon! Get out your feelings! You don’t do nothing for your community fool!

      • therealjjohnson

        All due respect playa, i wasnt even talking to you. Your comment was clearly a “joke”…just as the person who wrote it.

        Peace.

      • El Dogga

        Whatever you clown!

        You replied to someone who replied to me thus you spoke on me. Writing monologues on a hip hop site! Take this L!

      • Joshua Session

        Man, just shut up. Your joke was horrible, deal with it.

      • El Dogga

        Whatever clown!

      • ZUBU

        No way in hades are you black, brown or a person of color. Please sir find the fricking door…..

      • El Dogga

        Where did you get that from?

        You know what they say when you make ASSumptions right?

      • El Dogga

        Am I too logical? Does my vocabulary throw you off???? You ever read a book besides Dr. Seuss?????

      • Joshua Session

        There is nothing wrong with Jordans. But it is wrong to joke about selling your own people for a pair of Jordans and a fitted. People have killed their own blood over a pair of Jordans just last year, so people really do that. All I was saying was it is a terrible joke.

      • therealjjohnson

        Absolutely. Dude is clearly clown.

      • Joshua Session

        I don’t get in line for Jordans like you. You’d rather die over a pair of Jordans than die for your freedom. Only cowards make a joke about slavery because they are too afraid to stand for something. I’d rather be dead than to think like you.

      • El Dogga

        No-one will miss you.

        PS. I don’t wait in lines for Jordan’s you imbecile! I was making a joke. Hell I’d sell you for a half drunken sprite.

        What activist meetings have you attended? You ain’t about that life. Get out of here with that bs. End of the day you are just a sucka!

      • Casor_Greener

        bunch of armchair activists

      • El Dogga

        Word!! Ready to type all day on my joke, but they ain’t in these streets!

    • The_Good_Life

      Blah blah blah!!!! Nigga…

    • hitmhard313

      White people went a long time doing what ever they wanted to do and are still doing it on the world stage they can’t use the word reference the word they better keep it as a thought in their heads cuz black people ain’t taking them letting nigga come out their mouths any more thats the bottom line

      • Weedras

        ok so why is it ‘cool’ to use a word with so much pain as a term of endearment that other minorities also use, then again that certain chosen minorities also use… ever heard an hispanic hailing another as ‘wat up sp*c!’ but they’ll say ‘wat up n*gga!’ and no one says shit… hypocrisy…

      • V C Pittsburgh

        PREACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Guest

        !!

      • God Body

        Because the word has a new context. Nigga means different things in different ways in different conversations. Straight up English grammar is not the arbiter of all words. Context is just as important as literal definition.

        Take the word ‘set’ it appears in the English dictionary with numerous definitions because it can be used in various contexts. there is no one way to use it.. American white people invented the word as a dis. Just like the English invented the word ‘Yank’ as a dis for Americans. Yet people use the word all the time with pride. Because context is important.

      • Weedras

        do you see the term sp*c, ch*nk, and other slurs being used as terms of endearment by other minorities latinos don’t even use any slur against them yet they freely use the ‘n’ word…. and for the record i am aware of ppl who still don’t take kindly to being called a ‘yank’…

      • God Body

        I’m not making a case for OTHER people to call us niggas. And what they call each other is their business I won’t be calling anyone anything they don’t like. I see white boys arguing about how its unfair that they can’t say it, again that’s their problem. It’s not a word for them anymore. If a black man happens to call me the word I’m not going to have the same issue as if a white man said it. That’s just the way it is because the context of the conversation changes everything. That’s just how real people talk. In my everyday conversation the word never leaves my lips, because I personally don’t find any reason to use it constantly like I see some people do. To me it’s use is ironic and will remain so. I never use it in front of CERTAIN people because it’s inappropriate like many other words are. For example I’m a big man with kids and yet I don’t curse in front of my mom ever.

        So whether they like it or not. white people are not allowed. Some latinos I suppose have the same root cause to use the word, but by all means not all. And everyone else is just a bunch of bandwagonists if they feel they need the right to talk to black people the same way. They are not part of the conversation whether they feel they should be or not.

      • Weedras

        Just seeing this, i respect your opinion, now that you put it that way… i don’t use the word and i let ppl know not to address me as such, while you and i may look at it from the broader part of the spectrum some don’t as you said you wouldn’t use it around some folks but you got ppl who use it any and everywhere lol! i just think the use of such a word is just ignorant and self demeaning… again respect…

      • IceBergSlim

        Preach it! Playa

    • V C Pittsburgh

      AMEN!!! That ish started in NY then florida then every spanish person say it.

    • MannyStylz

      NOBODY should use it.. there is absolutely NO endearment in that word, so we’re ALL wrong..

    Chuck D sued biggies estate and dj premiere for the sampling of 10 crack commandments. he lost all credibility in my book along with Flavor Flav well at least Flav is not smoking crack anymore that we know of

    • FRUKOH

      He didnt want his voice associated with the selling of crack, that just gives him more credibility unless you think glorifying the selling of crack is cool.

      • Triple7_skylakegreat

        U make a good point no I dont. But he spoke in the interview I read to preme and they was at his funeral and he was like everything is cool, then preme said he had to pay him off in court afterwards and biggie estate too. Should of left it alone but who really knows. Crack ain’t cool tho word. And I deff don’t rock w ross either.

        Damn it was a good song tho

      • hAHAHAH!

      • God Body

        Premo didn’t have to pay him. the record company did. Sometimes you have to live by your principles. Chuck lives by his. Premo respects Chuck Ds. I think Premo took the lesson like a man. Chuck D never ever disses another black man in public. He’ll disagree, he’ll offer advice but he won’t start beef where simple dialogue will fix the problem.

        Saying that. Chuck ain’t letting up on Rosenberg or Iggy for now. I ain’t mad at Chuck for this either.

      • FOH

        Exactly

  • mattbps

    I know it’s off topic. But the line that said ” nodded to her boyfriend, who’s buttering a crumpet”. Made me laugh.

    • MannyStylz

      for the sake of my own clarity, who u talkin bout bruh??

      • God Body

        I don’t think he knows. Or hes just guessing Chuck D did this but didn’t really bother to find out if he did or not. Basically he just wanted to say something shady about Chuck D

      • MannyStylz

        exactly what i was thinking fam, but i wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt b4 i sprayed him..

      • MannyStylz

        show me when and/or where you’ve EVER heard/seen chuck d call anybody a nigga.. i’ll wait..

      • illsmackyobitchass

        if you gone call out iggy he need to call out fat joe specifically, and French montana and all them. none of that half stepping. and I not specifically talking about chuck d im talking about anybody who gotta problem with iggy saying it, and then going to say it yourself, yall some Hippocrates.plus him calling her out didnt improve my state of being so if you gone fight for your people do something that really matters. like call out these rappers telling the youth to sell crack to ur own community… that would make a bigger difference. yall a bunch of rebels with no cause

      • MannyStylz

        1st, i was simply questioning your comment above “how you gonna tell somebody not to say nigga but say it yourself…
        claim they misleading the youth but rap about killing niggas either you sensitive or not, Ol’ bitch ass nigga…” (YOU said that, and i just questioned who you was talking about..)

        2nd, chuck d has made a career out of calling out these same people you’re saying he hasnt called out.. maybe not the ones you specifically mentioned (joe, french, etc.), but if you dont already know that then maybe you check his discography before calling him an “ol bitch ass nigga”..

      • illsmackyobitchass

        well he was quick to go a iggy neck and not joe or French… that’s a ol bitch ass nigga, that’s like getting dissed by 2 dudes and a girl and the only one you try to fight is the girl

      • MannyStylz

        really?? with the history this man has of calling folks out THIS is the topic you wanna focus on to justify calling him a bitch?? c’mon son

  • El Dogga

    At the end of the day. People are still gonna buy her album when it drops (idk if it did already i DO NOT check for her). Everyone is gonna vouch for her in the industry and this will have no relevance in a few weeks (just like Beiber, trayvon martin or whatever race issue that pops up).

    Everyone here behind a keyboard will be pumping there fists but when your in the streets you’ll walk with your head down. Let’s save time and just let this issue die down cuz no-one is down for A REAL CHANGE!

    NEXT STORY!

    • rocnation30

      THEY AINT GONNA BUY HER ALBUM NOT BECAUSE SHE SAID NIGGA BUT BECAUSE THE GIRL IS ACTUALLY TRASHH…….CMON…

      • El Dogga

        I don’t get what’s the big deal with her. But they say she has number one songs out. I’ve never heard of any! lol
