(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop legend Q-Tip initiated an important conversation over the weekend when the A Tribe Called Quest member sent a series of tweets to Iggy Azalea about the history of Hip Hop. Iggy’s mentor T.I. decided to respond to Q-Tip’s comments via Twitter as well. The Hustle Gang leader also offered support to his artist Azalea.

    My boy went from scholar to straight hood by the end of his tweets. Lol

    But in all seriousness, T.I. has valid points but I don’t think he gets the big picture.

    • 💕Rihanna💞

      No I don’t think so either. But being that IGGY is his artist he’s gonna defend her whiteness regardless because she’s bringing in money despite what we think

      • That’s pretty much exactly what he said

  • 💕Rihanna💞

    Lmao at the transition of his tweets went from 0-100 ratchet REAL QUICK!!!

  • Markus

    Nobody said that others who aren’t black can’t contribute. Rick Rubin was right there in the mix of things when DefJam was just starting out. And as an artist, Eminem in the beginning and a few others have managed to find moments in music to stand out. T.I. alluded to that but he’s biased in one area: Iggy is his girl. He would never admit that as a rapper broken down to just rhymes delivery and flow,she is complete trash. But her trash has allowed her to go through doors that other more talented and more tanned females wouldn’t be able to open. Iggy Azalea isn’t hip hop and should never be mentioned in the same breath with the words hip hop.

    • gurdyghost

      I feel like TI has a hard time seeing the big picture. This is NOT a conversation about weather or not whites should be “allowed ” in hiphop but rather a conversation about cultural mis/appropriation…..two separate things…..Either hes only thinking of the money or he can’t fake being an intellectual on this type of subject.

    • SenseiAishitemasu

      THANK YOU

  • M. Skittle

    People really give the record executives more credit than they deserve. These people
    care about one thing and one thing only, money. If a half retarded squirrel could write and sing hits, he’d be on every billboard. Nicki minaj wrote “Starships”, she’s all over top 40. She writes “Lookin A**”, no where to be seen. Why? The music sucks, period. You want to be on top 40 radio? Make better music, it’s really that simple. Azealia Banks is mad because her album tanked and she has no one to blame but her own horrible taste in music. 212 was decent but that was only because of the producer. The rest of the album is trash and she know’s it. Get over it and get better, quit trying to sell albums with the sympathy/race card.

  • Steven Wright Montgomery Of Co

    I feel like T.I. is only worried about his money

    • frades

      as he should

    • Guest

      To YOU and him and the devil, selling records and souls are the same thing, and you the same n!gga asking what happening to hip hop…..GTFOH! and stay out.

  • Fosho3528

    Stop with all the race bullsh*t. I get just as mad when Rich Homie Quan gets more airplay than my favorite talented hip hop artists. It is what it is. Most people just like dumbed down radio friendly music. This chick is white. Her music sucks. It’s radio friendly. I could argue that Nikki’s music is just the same. I could also argue that back in the day, Kim and Foxy’s music was the same thing and they weren’t even writing their rhymes! And for crying out loud black people: stop with all this Twitter nonsense. When you gotta send 9 tweets because you keep running out of room, it’s time to STFU. I swear to god Twitter is making a lot of artists and athletes look ridiculous and borderline killing careers. Rant over. Happy Monday.

    • I dig your entire statement except “stop with all the race bullshit”, I don’t even have faith that racism will ever fade, other than that your statement is a hondon

  • WaterMELON_RANGER_CHRI$$$

    My question is if Clifford Harris wrote her rhymes then who’s struggle are we witnessing? ?????

    Eminem had niggas come out to defend his past (peolpe that werent his artist) and even if it wasnt true he had Dr Dre backing him and sorry to say tip “U AINT NO DRE” u cant blur these lines like Dre to actually make me think shes authentic

    TIP think cuz she f@cking Nick Young and got ran thru by Asap Mob gives her a HipHop pass with no credentials

    Nigga$ act like google dont exist and your acting like a dad thats outta touch with society Clifford

    I’d defend my family and my money to the grave though too so i feel u mista Harris

    • Judah Nazayar

      thats officer harris.. show sum respect sir

      • WaterMELON_RANGER_CHRI$$$

        Lmao

        lol

  • Any black man who bought enough guns to arm a small middle eastern militant group cannot be trusted imo. This coon spent a year in prison for what the average black would have gotten multiple life sentences for. Any regular person who did the same would be somewhere beneath the jail right now.

    • Black Superman

      I wouldn’t trust anyone from Atlanta personally. Them niggaz are shaaaaadey!!! I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he wrote her rhymes. Them niggaz do whatever for the money.

      • You can’t tell that he does in fact write her rhymes? Who else you think is writing it?

  • The_Councilman

    We all should be mad at TI for allowing such a poor talent to infiltrate the mainstream and help suck the music/genre dry, and call it hip hop. That’s who we all should be mad at. Iggy is Pinocchio, TI is Mr. Geppetto; he controls where she goes and what she does. Blame him for pushing and backing her to get on the radio and the video shows.

    All TI is doing is protecting his investment. From headlining artists (such as Snoop and Q-Tip, and many others) to a load of fans, don’t respect Iggy because she’s paid no dues and she doesn’t even know what the foundation is that built the genre that’s making her rich. TI found the opportunity to put a white chick on the frontline and call her the next queen of hip hop, because he knows that suckas eat up that white skin, because suckas are thirsty. TI doesn’t care for or probably even understand what Q-Tip wrote to Iggy, he’s just protecting his investment so he to, can eat off a white girl like Akon does Lady GaGa. And that’s all it boils down to.

    • frades

      blacks have ruined rap way before iggy stepped in the scene so stop with the bullshit.

      • Slaughtr

        Corporate white boys have fkced up hip hop so what the fck you saying know completely what you screaming.

      • WeakSauce

        You will never get threw to them. They only hear and read what they want to hear and read

      • Deflection

        No silly, white executives destroyed Hip Hop.

  • RazaBladeKing

    I’ve noticed that only closet racists use the term “race card.” I prefer the down south racists, cuz at least they’re honest and upfront. They’ll be like “You c**ns quit whinin!” and dare you to punch em in the face.

    • SenseiAishitemasu

      Lol agreed

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • Black Superman

    TI iggy my be up but you’re not. Paperwork sold 90,000 copies 1st week. And I’m so tired of this bitch I mean really who’s buying her shit?

    • frades

      alot of whites buying it alot.

      • SenseiAishitemasu

        Try again, her album hasn’t even gone gold in the US and only sold 52,000 copies the first week. Bitch is a flop actually.

  • Tall Shon or T.S

    Good job Tip..

  • I’ve never seen an iggy interview and I hate hearing her voice on radio, all this talk about her has me worn the hell out and tired of hearing. I wonder how she sounds while talking tho…I think I’m gonna hafta go see…lmao curious, does she sound like crocodile dundee or does she sound like laqueesha the ratchet, or some random white girl.

    • frades

      LOOK UP ON YOUTUBE

      Iggy Azalea addresses race in Hip Hop, Illuminati,Interscope asking her to dumb down

      • I watched about 45 secs of it just to hear her inflection of words, how do u go from that to sounding like a wigga on a track…

  • NoGoBoi

    I honestly think TI is fulfilling a deal made previously over those gun charges. Corporations run everything, I scratch your back and you scratch mines system. So he did a year as a convicted felon, we’re talking federal time, not state. His buzz was not gone at the time, career was still progressive. They covered his fees and his family’s lifestyle was still maintained while he was gone. Iggy is not signed directly to grand hustle/hustle gang, actually he only receives a percentage. A way to pay off what he owes those corporations, he “better” speak up and push the envelope for iggy or the trouble and issues he’ll encounter will be astounding. When they have you by the balls so to speak, you either coon up and fall in line, or stand on the frontline and stand for what’s right. He’s not the only one and it’s sad and pathetic. Money is the root of all Evil smh

    • Big_Chill

      Word Tip is an agent bro

    • frades

      delusion at its best. haha

  • Damn T.I.

    I can’t believe this sh*t. It seems like Azealia Banks was right. I was willing to give Tip the benefit of the doubt. But now?

    He’s straight tap dancing…..

    How can dude defend this? If anything he should’ve just been silent and let Iggy speak for herself. Nothing Q-Tip wrote needed his input.

    Why didn’t T.I. comment when Iggy made the tweets about 20 Black Guys being arrested outside of a Popeyes chicken? Why didn’t he say something about the tweet Iggy made about Asian people? Or the tweet Iggy made about Hispanics?

    At least we now know why he allowed his wife to dye her hair blond and change her eye color to blue.

    F*ck! Azealia Banks was on point like a motherf*cker! Props to that chick.

    • frades

      so what you want him to give up on his money for the love of hip hop ??? nigga you crazy.

      • He didn’t have to give up on his money. He only needed to shut the f*ck up. Q-Tip wasn’t even talking to him to begin with. And on top of that, it wasn’t an offensive tweet. Q-Tip was just schooling the chick on the history of hip hop. T.I. didn’t have to add that dash of “some blacks hate whites” bullsh*t just to try to please the masses. Last I checked Iggy has a mouth and 2 thumbs. She could’ve responded without T.I.’s dash of milk in the recipe. N*gga YOU crazy.

      • HatingWhitePeopleSince85

        This Nigga Black Jay Supreme is on point!!! He spitting nothing but truth!! Salute!!

      • Black Adam

        You see I gave him dap. Shit.

      • No doubt!

      • Salute!!

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        Here’s some more dap, I been riding with her from the jump, and for her to be so young, Her albums is very creative. Will everybody like it, I doubt it, It’s amazing to me cause it all over the place. As she’s mature, good things could happen for her. JMO.

  • Guest

    LOL…….i know bloggers at ALLHIPHOP is mostly culture vultures, and i see the same old vultures, justifying 1 of “their owns” and im not talking about iggy, but about that house n!gga (uncle ruckus)

  • KobieDixon

    Yo, T.I….what’s up with her posting a pic of two raccoons eating out here vagina tho?

  • WORLD DOMINATOR

    T.I. has VALID OPINIONS as someone in the game for over 25 years! Music is music, people are people BEFORE we delineate their origins, religions, race, creed or ethnicity

  • chicagostyl

    the fact that TI has to constantly jump into Iggy’s beef’s or jump in and explain stuff when no one was talking to him tells me all I need to know about the authenticity of Iggy as an artist and how the industry really works. Iggy is being pushed by the industry, not really by the fans or even by her own merit. She is a poor man’s Lady Gaga. Its understandable but kinda sad in that its such an obvious marketing scheme yet they get mad when they called out on not being authentic to the culture. This is culture vulture at its clearest.

  • Black Adam

    Negras is showing they ass these days. What a shame.

    Lets be clear. Iggy has the right to make any type of music she wants and to be whoever she feels she needs to be. That also means ppl can voice their opinion of her and her musical content, which everyone knows is ass and an insult to any person involved in Hip Hop including those that are just fans and listeners. Hip Hop is a CULTURE. We take it seriously.

  • macknificent

    This ain’t about black or white, hip hop or non of that this about people being mad at success, what y’all really saying is why people appear to be listen to her shit and buying her shit and not mine, this my fourth album yo my fourth album and I’m still living wit my moms, that fancy shit that fancy shit it’s was alright but my shit is more john blaze than that!!!!

  • Brindle

    Somethings wrong when this girl is supposed to be a hiphop artist (person making money off expressing hiphop) but can’t express her own thoughts unless its promoting her music… what happens if she forgets her verse, does TI just pop out of no where with tap shoes on and finish the verse for her??

    • SenseiAishitemasu

      Probably lol

  • Liam Knurtsis

    Captain save-a-puppet 2 the rescue, like iggy has no voice of her own to voice her own opinions on shots being taken at her, just seems her scooby du(T.I) always gotta bark in her defense!

  • Saiyan Prince

    I guess T.I. won’t be joining the Zulus anytime soon.

    • MassConglom

      LMAO!!!!!!!!

  • 5% Hov

    This is not about white talented artists like EM or Action Bronson,

    This is about garbage MC’s like Iggy being compared to real talented rappers like Banks, or Nicki etc

    Conversation OVER

  • macknificent

    Can somebody please explain to me what they big problem is? What is y’all saying white people shouldn’t rap? Or before they rap they should say shot out to the black people that made rap? This the same problem pimp c and southern rappers had with New York rappers we know where rap came from, u should be glad it has expanded global, what u wanted it to stay I bathe street corner in the Bronx forever but that’s out community for u, we stuck on losing so much we don’t know when we wining.

    • chicagostyl

      I dont think it has anything to do with being blk white or whatever so much as ppl wanna see authentic artists get the huge push, not someone who seems to be portraying an artist or pretending to be something all just to make money. Thats why ppl hate Rick Ross, Plies, the list goes on and on. You see it as TI making money off this chick, which is cool Im happy for Tip Harris too. But he and Iggy are making money mocking hip hop by putting Iggy on and giving her this huge industry push. You mean to tell me Iggy is so talented that she should win Grammys? There could maybe be a case for Macklemore, but Iggy not so much. She not showing us what hip hop means to her, she’s showing us what she thinks hip hop is from what she’s seen others do. She not giving us a glimpse into the australian hip hop scene or if there is one. She chose to hijack a new accent, rap other ppls lyics and walk and dress like she from the Bronx or somthin. Ppl not gunna support that unless, as you stated, they just dont care either way. If you dont care thats fine, but not everybody is gunna ALWAYS sit on the sideline while they see their culture be mocked.

      • ytgarner

        Thank you you explained the way Q Tip should have its not about race it’s about what she’s protraying. She thinks it’s black culture how she presents herself and it’s far from who we are

  • macknificent

    If somebody make a song I don’t like I don’t buy it if they make a song I like I buy it I don’t care where they from or what they look like

    • Liam Knurtsis

      Dude i dont know if you’ve peeped the award shows for the last couple years..excluding b.e.t. every catagory of BLACK culture been white dominated..not like white people cant make LATINO music if they felt inclined, and dude like you see the WARNING but you dont get the MESSAGE, and there something wrong when MACKLAMORE has to agree his shit shouldn’t of won half tthe accolades bestowed on him seamlessly if the awards show really wanted 2 reward ART! Its all about supremacy over an obviously dominating culture!

      • macknificent

        I don’t even watch none of the awards I couldn’t care less. I simply buy what I like, at the end of the day it’s a Blackman getting paid off iggy, damn the awards and what not and you can beg your last dollar grand hustle employ plenty black authentic hip hop artist and just black people from the culture period, I’m black and from the ghetto slums to and know I don’t understand your argument

      • macknificent

        Y’all just coming off like mad rappers it’s hard to see it any other way

      • macknificent

        I don’t even like iggy or bought none of her music but I like t.i and I salute him for what he doing with his company he expanding his brand, at the end of the day u hating on a successful black man

      • Liam Knurtsis

        successful black man?, if you know anything about Hip Hop culture like my man Q-Tip was saying.. the fondation wasnt built for the purpose of SUCCESS, and it was never biased either, wasn’t until success BECAME then main motive to rap is when it got TWISTED just like you chico!

      • macknificent

        Yeah and u don’t see the contradictions in your argument?

      • macknificent

        So basically u down to except any garbage music an artist makes as long as they not a white woman?

      • macknificent

        I’m sorry but I can take iggy more seriously then countless of black artist who outright disrespectfully make a mockery of our own art form and culture

      • Liam Knurtsis

        then your just the ones they aim for when they want you to place blame on the few who make such a great culture internationally substantial than any other genre from american culture…you stay closed minded to anything else cause your capicity it limited to true aethetic beauity..thus your a fraud and make meaningless claims to what is good or bad in a culture(black)

      • macknificent

        And I don’t understand nothing u just said

      • macknificent

        All y’all just some mad rappers

      • Liam Knurtsis

        Guess we can be the perpetrators and sound like NICE rappers as presented on KIDZ BOP! that seems like ya cup of rap

      • macknificent

        That fancy shit that fancy shit that shit was alright yo but my shit is more john blaze than that and they not recognizing……..

      • Liam Knurtsis

        i was wondering when you would lose ya composure…weak people like you would fall to true rap talent

      • macknificent

        I don’t know what the hell u even saying, miss me with all that fortune cookie talk….. U just mad that white girl styling on u son…..

      • Liam Knurtsis

        lol, you call that styling cause she got dudes like you who have blind conformity into something you honestly know nothing about, you honestly think thats winning, people like you dont know what struggle or happiness is so you’ll dick ride her wave and flaunt it but in the end you’ll keep searching for the next one cause your empty #soulless

      • macknificent

        But I’m saying though …. Why shy styling on u like that though son?

      • Liam Knurtsis

        Lmao your a str8 slubber de Gullion, like ya conviction, you just clueless

    • Brindle

      that’s the problem

      • macknificent

        That’s the problem ? I want if the rock community got this worked up about jimmy Hendrix or fishbone I buy they music to

      • Brindle

        Yes, you don’t even get the topic. Where she’s from? What she look like? Neither of these 2 statements are an issue with anyones discussion… the problem is what does she stand for: talent, polictics, hiphop, etc… the problem is the history of this act, lessor talented white artist blows up doing black music which always has made the music worst the the true fans of the genre and also removes money and position from a more talented black artist… then your comparison, Iggy doesn’t go to hiphop the Hendrix went to Rock, she’ll never be a legend or even a true artist or really add anything to the culture… you and your 2 guest votes have a very simple minded perspective, which waters down the true topic at hand, just as Iggy does to hiphop and Hendrix didn’t do to rock…

      • Big_Chill

        Ummm Rock n Roll was black music bro…

      • macknificent

        So now black people invented rock to? Wow we really are just some creative people nobody should be able to make mush period but us lets just make it like that

      • Big_Chill

        Yup

  • macknificent

    I’m a tell u straight up that azalea banks broad is really making me root for iggy, I wasn’t paying iggy no attention until the banks broad start bitching and moaning, and I can’t endorse hating period and I don’t care how u wanna justify it or dress it up and sugar coat it, u hating

    • Liam Knurtsis

      If there been any HATE going on, its the ones who felt need to FLEX their responsibilty by manipulating people(iggy, macklamore) who until the year they arrived NEVER been heard of and have no reality of black culture except that they can look really NICE rhyming words on KIDZ BOP, speaking of which i dont even see diversity on that tasteless shit anymore…you’ll always lose this argument homes cause u people never have education or conviction for a dam thing!

      • macknificent

        Man we killing out own culture you can’t blame them I don’t even know what language migos and young thug is rapping in if it ain’t that is my own peoe telling me to pick up a gun and kill myself and my community so they can’t be doing no worse than we doing to our self

      • chicagostyl

        Mackelmore isnt all that terrible….at least he tries to be an artist

    • SenseiAishitemasu

      I hate Devils advocate trolls like you. Moron.

      • macknificent

        U hate the truth

      • Black Adam

        Negra you aint spitting no types of truth. Just some cornball lies to attempt to over take the board with your nonsense. We can spot your type easy.

    • Black Adam

      You confuse criticism with hating. All you need to know is Iggy is the new Vanilla Ice. Period. Shes a fraud and so is Rick Ross and a few others. Real Hip Hop heads call them all out and Iggy is close to the top.

      • macknificent

        That’s your opinion I don’t buy iggy music like I said before I didn’t even pay her no attention till y’all made her infamous by hating on her, that’s how hate works….. Niggaz kept complaining so I coped more diamonds – Shawn “jay z” Carter

      • Black Adam

        Come on troll. Knock off the nonsense. Iggy was gaining stardom for the longest. Aint nobody haiting b. She a fraud and hip hop tends to do its best to push the frauds out. Deal with it.

      • macknificent

        Troll? I don’t even know what your definition of troll is or hip hop, you so concerned with the state of hip hop. I bet you don’t even buy music I bet it’s all YouTube mixtapes and free downloads with you

      • Black Adam

        Whatever it is just remember I was alive during the start and saw most of it clown. My catalog is crazy. Full of names you never heard. Especially if you biging up Iggy. Keep moving troll.

      • macknificent

        Yeah I can dig it I’ll be your clown, I’m a let u have it

      • Black Adam

        Smart move. Now be even smarter and stop defending trash!

      • macknificent

        U wanna save real hip hop stop crying and go buy your favorite hip hop artist music and stop hating on people that’s selling

      • Black Adam

        Mos Def, Lupe, J Cole, Nas and Marley , Hov are my last few purchases. Care to name yours?

      • macknificent

        Dude I ain’t got to prove nothing to u. U got it man. U keep hating on iggy, h the main one on her promo team, and by the way catalog filled up with all that and plenty more as I recall I’m the one who even brought up who buy music and who don’t but ok u got it

  • LetsBeRealpeople

    #WhenTipTweets tho.

  • ace

    Ti just joined my list of black people we should NOT be listening to. He does not speak for the people who he once himself was. Keep doing the jig for the money. He goes in th box with charles barkley, raven Symone, al sharpton, and any other person who on the suface seems to be for thier peoples progress, but do and say things that are toatlly the opposite. The illusion of inclusion got these people brainwashed. Its sad.

    • Dope

      Because he doesn’t agree with your or share your world view… makes sense. Segregation, which is what you seem to want for black people, is not progress, it’s the opposite of it.

      • ytgarner

        Do your history bro integration help destroy the black business structure we had more skills than them after slavery. We no longer did business with our own and it destroyed black business. We were thriving before integration they were threatened by our progress on our own this why the ” unions ” we’re formed because if you were a slave and freed you had a ton of skill. They wanted no niggers taking their Jobs

      • VILLIANvsVILLAIN

        ytgarner ‘if it were left to you decide whether segregation was necessary again, do you believe we as black people could thrive once again?’

      • Ygarner

        Can we take our millionaires and billionaires teachers and inventors with us ? because if so look at what they lose and I don’t think they want to take that lose they’d try to kill us for it! Why ? We don’t discriminate with our dollar all other nationalities in America at some point do. They spend amongst themselves we don’t . In all actuality they still practice it we don’t.

      • VILLIANvsVILLAIN

        Sadly brother, the numbers of Blacks who’d be in opposition would astound you. We as a people only love each other as a last resort. When attacked, we unite. Otherwise, our favorite past time is attacking eachother. I myself if given a choice, would vote against segregation. I am a tri racial male, raised in an African American household by an African Queen. I would choose to vote against segregation for one reason only…I’m not black enough for black and too black for white. Segregation could never work again brother. The co-mingling of races has made it so that too many of our people would be further ostracized.

      • ace

        I only said segregation as a means of progress, because the uneducated person who replied said its a bad idea. I said its better than the oppression we suffer now that he called progress for blacks. Segregation may not be the answer, but something has to change, especially for blacks to get any respect we would have to be a nation apart, like little itialy, liitle china ect ect, we have to control 100% of our businesses, distribution, ect ect. In the us, under thier system (i say thier cuz it was nvr meant for us) we wont get any farther then we are now because at the end of the day, somone else owns your means of making, so to speak.

        U missed the point bruh. The central point was if this is progress with integration then how bad could a EQUAL and fair form of segregation actually be….. he not literally campaigning for segregation….

        It has nothing to do with MY views, im thinking for MY PEOPLE, MY CHILDREN. it has nothing to do with his personal views, it has to do with the dumbing down of my people, the support he shows for the bs thats happinnig to hip hop and my people. And the fact that because he is black, and in a what we call in a privliged position, white people tend to listen to him as if he was a spokesperson for all of us. Same way they do charles barkley. Ti just said himself, ” our above average lifestyles, do u have one of them? I dont. So he shldnt be speaking for me. Period.

      • ace

        And segregation IS PROGRESS. Not a ideal solution, but progress none the less, anything to get away from this oppressive bs system is progress. U say that segregation is not progress. But. What progress have blacks made since integration? Right after slavery blacks owned 1 half, of 1 percent of the nations wealth, lets fast fwd 400 yrs after slavery, and 150 yrs of “freedom” guess how much wealth the blacks own in the us? The same damn amount!!!!! 1 half of one percent. So u tell me where the progress is? Cuz we got cars n homes now? Thats not real progress.

If you are, and u made something of youself coongrads, but the i ask you, were did u grow up, in da hood like me and my fam? Where the same opportunities to make something of yourself are slim to none? Where u making something of yourself was 10x harder than for the other guy? Or are you white, who has a privilege he is born with, and just think we are complaining? I made something of myself as well as a black man. But i will tell u i had to work 10x harder to get here, 10x harder to stay here, and still deal with under qualified people having a hogher position than me cuz daddy worked here or cuz he or she knew somone. Im not saying all but some. It ain as black and white as u make it.

        Ok. So lets say sht got real right now. God forbid, but lets say. ww3 blk vs white, The way u talk, sounds like anyone else who suffers from the illusion of inclusion. Meaning, u have a job, a good job, nice car, white wife (joking)(but seriously tho) a credit score over 500 and you think you made it, you are good with that. You think thats progress correct? So u think cuz u did it and some others didnt, its their fault they arnt were u are. Which means u feel INCLUDED in the power structure, and you say things like, i did it you can to, and its your own fault if u dnt make it, but i ask u. If sht got real right now, black vs white. Will your ceo protect you, will your current co workers take u in their home? I highly doubt it. U will die defending your masters. Or in this case argue with me for hours based on FACTS i have vs opinion you have. Which makes you the definition of a HOUSE NIGGA. Let me ask you. You ” made it” what have you since done for the hood you came from????? A good chance its probably nothing, since u think its there fault anyway right?

        It is a national issue concerning this “race war” you speak of. It could not ever be an international issue because no one in any other country is protesting…you are just that stupid to think any other country gives a fuk about what is going on here. They have bigger issues than 4 black men killed by police. This is the problem, people like you try to make this issue bigger than it is and disregard anything that is right with your own oppressed views of society. You lost this argument.

        dude, you realize you’re arguing with a Klansman?. That dude could care less about black folks and how they feel. He trolls allhiphop for any post dealing with race and calls black people whiners for expressing themselves.

        He doesn’t realize that blacks were better off during segregation because they actually had to own their own businesses and banking system. He also doesn’t realize that white folks (prob some of his relatives) burned down a lot of these towns and murdered black folks who where doing well simply because they were black.
        don’t waste your time.

      • ace

        I know bro. I still gotta drop the facts though. At the end of the day he gotta live with the facts. He can Say what he want, feel how he want, facts are facts.Lol. He ain get to me at all. If anything jus made my team a little stronger cuz i got to see there are a few more educated, like minded people who know the real like youself. And through arguing with that dude, someone may have learned something, or have a reason to do some reasearch now. All part of my plan. Lol. so to the uneducated klansman, good looking out!

      • Aiden_Abetting

        Lol…so because I tell people to stop complaining I’m a klansman? Because I’m saying stuff you don agree with I’m a klansman…actually I’d expect nothing less from either of you and I’m not white either lol

      • ace

        That just makes it that much worse. I at least expect it from a white dude. Smh. so my last question to u is, as a black man, coming from the hood, do u feel you have the same opportunities, and privileges, as a white person who has had the same exact background as you?

      • Aiden_Abetting

        And blacks would own more than this 1% you speak of (which is funking reaching cuz I’m sure it’s more) if instead of dropping out of school and living the street life they stayed in school and pursued a college edcucation

      • ace

        Your sure its more huh? Show me your sources. Ill gladly give you mine. And black dropout rate, is result of the system that was put in place long before we entered school. U rather blame the people, and not the cause. Lol. I cant even talk to you. Your uneducated statements with no proof to back them give me a headache. Read a book. Good day

      • Aiden_Abetting

        Lol you sir are an idiot….the poor oppressed black man….and where is your proof ? All speculation.

      • ace

        My proof. I would give you some books to read, but i doubt you will so just look up these people. A simple youtube search will do. Dr umar johnson, black dot, professor griff, dick gregory, dr phil valentine, craig lewis, i can go on. If u do decide to educate youself, a few books you should read, 48 laws of power, the physoclogical war on hip hop, dirty little secrets of black history, big brother, the public school to prison pipeline, and since you like the system so much read a book by some of the WHITES who designed it and let them tell you, behold a pale horse, codex magica. I can go on. But tlk to me aftr u do some homework

      • Aiden_Abetting

        Yea I’ll believe what I watch on YouTube lol. It’s all conspiracy theories….I’ve read many of the books you mentioned. Including the ones written by the “white man” lol…but at the end of the day you can find fault in each. It is what it is but I’m not complaining and whining like you.

      • Dope

        First of all that 1% is a random number thrown around like a fact. Second, segregation is always regress. 150 years ago you weren’t able to own a piece of cloth you’d use to cover your back at night. Today you can own anything any other man can own. Just because you don’t own it, doesn’t mean you can’t. Go ask Jay Z, Michael Jordan, Samuel Jackson, Dre, Diddy or any other rich, successful businessman would they like your idea of segregation.

      • ace

        First. 1% is not a random number. Just because you dont read enough to know these common facts is on u. Second. Owning sht, does not equal progress genius. Especially when what you own, is created by someone else. We own hardly no black businesses, no ships, trains, planes, car companies, nothing!!! So no matter how much u think u “own” u dont “own” sht cuz every dollar u spend, makes everyone but ur own ppl richer. In slavery they had watever clothes master gave them. Now they make the clothes and you willing go buy them. Same sht. N idgaf wat jay z n dem feel. Jordan??? R u serious nigga??? Did u see what he said about black ppl like 2 days ago. All dem ppl dnt give a fuk bout u. Wtf they do for me? For my ? Not a damn thing. Why the hell are u so bent on protecing ppl who dont give a damn bout u? N wats crazy if we did segragate, u, jordan, and all dem orher ppl u named, would stay with the white folks cuz clearly u like it here. Smh Dats crazy

      • Dope

        They don’t have to do anything for you. Every man needs to make himself into something. They made themselves, you go and make yourself instead of whining. Then see if you will act like you give a damn about race once you have money to see the world from a different perspective.
        If you want black car companies, black whatever.. START IT.

      • ace

        I never said they had to. I was making the point that i dnt care bout them like they dnt care bout me. That simple. We are starting black buisnesses. But ppl like u make it harder cuz u dnt support ur own. U rather help the ones that wont help u. And most importantly. The entire point of the convo, the point that u keep avoiding in the first place is, to open that buisness it will be 10x times harder for the black guy than tje white guy. Thats not whining, thats not saying it cant be done, its saying its going to be way harder. Period. I asked u 2 questions before and u keep avoiding them. 1. Since u “made it” what do u do for the hood you come from??? 2. Do u think you have the same rights or privileges as a white person with your same upbringing?

      • Dope

        First of all, I am white, I never claimed to be black and you obviously seem to have made that judgement on whatever base you made it. Second, I do come from a lousy neighborhood, not only ”black” parts of town are bad economically.
        As for ”supporting your own”, it doesn’t apply really, but in any case, when I go to buy anything I don’t ask what color is the company president’s skin. I buy whatever product I may like based on the product and it’s qualities.
        And yes, I do believe a black person, unless it acts like a buffoon, has the same rights as any other. And any white person that acts like a buffoon looses it’s own credibility. Of course, there are racists out there, the world is not a perfect place. But to say it is somehow worse today then it was 100 or more years ago, and to claim segregation is the key to anything, that’s just uneducated buffoonery.

    Q Tip is not explaining the problem correctly nor is TI understanding what he’s saying . Twerking tatoos and gangbangin does not constitute black culture but this is how the music industry sees blacks and the artist in question does too. Ti was a drug dealer and lacks knowledge of self. He quotes ” an above average life style ” what the hell is that in America ? Drinking Crushed grapes sitting in a jar for half a century or feeding on fish that eats feces of other fish and or other dead fish . I digress. As I said the problem is not her it’s what she is protrayng to the youth. ” it’s destructive ” to any child or parent for that matter watches it. And to though’s that don’t have education of mind control or mind manipulation need to learn because your entertainment industry does 🙂

GET OUT OF HERE You don’t know music history cause you’ve been fed to believe a stereo type. Black music comes from black people. WRONG. So we shouldn’t do THAT NEW ANNIE movie that just came out.

    • William Witherz

      Do you even know what you’re talking about?

      “You don’t know music history cause you’ve been fed to believe a stereo type. Black music comes from black people. WRONG.”

      so it is a stereotype that black music comes from black people? Do you know what a stereotype is?

      • Papi Peligro

        a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing.

        It is a wildly held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea that black people make black music. It is a wildly held but fixed and oversimplified image that white people haven’t contributed ALREADY to making Hip Hop, Jazz, Rock, Country aka the Blues.

        About half of these rappers claim to have personas matching 80’s rock stars. Seems to me WHITE PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY contributed greatly to the current Hip Hop culture. Lets not go back to the Rick Rubin bla bla bla bla. Cause its old and tired.

        Now what we need to talk about is SHYLOCKS. These rappers hopping up making tweets etc trying to be gate keepers to music. Let it evolve naturally. If you have something better put it out. QTip last album went paneling dog. Nobody even cut down a tree to go double wood. The same thing goes for the Cosby’s and the whole lot of you Fake Lying about your Heritage Hebrew/Muslim/Christians. What’s real hatred of yourself. IS LYING to make yourself look better. It means you don’t LOVE YOURSELF enough so you make up stuff to feel more important.

      • William Witherz

        Black people make black music is not a stereotype – it is fact. It is not oversimplified and saying black people make black music does not take away from the contributions of others to the music – Rick Rubin in the early 80’s and Puerto Rican dancers in the 70’s and 80’s, for example.

        The fact that rappers are taking a persona in their music is related to 80’s rock? How about 70’s funk? how about 60’s soul? or 50’s Blues? Many Black musicians took on a character or different persona in their music. Muddy Waters to George Clinton.

        People feel strongly about hip hop and we actually need more gatekeepers. QTip was not disrespectful in any way, so I don’t see why people call him a hater. We can agree to disagree, but I just feel your “this is America, we can be what we want” is the real oversimplification here.

So I just go double back and listen to no mediocre and she going hard in the paint, she snapping y’all hating I bought the song gave her and t.i. Some money and tall can thank y’all self cause now she hit one more new fan…salute to grand hustle!!!!

  • thegoodgospel

    Besides Q-tip whom I respect b/c he is a pioneer and I dont take what he said as a diss to Iggy , it was more like advice, but If you pay attention the only people talking shit and hating on Iggy are either broke or irrelevant rappers. I dont recall ever hearing Iggy say she was here to save hip hop, she’s staying in her lane doing her type of music. If you dont like it dont buy it !

      You calling Snoop irrelevant? Take them words back you piece of sh!t!!!

        i like snoop he also is legendary…but he didnt diss her music cocksucker..he made fun of her appearance

    • Garbage Kitty

      Iggy is commercial rap, not hiphop (just like TI who is a sellout and unlike QTip who is a pioneer) – so misappropriating black culture is expected from her, as all her peers in same genre perpetuate negative black stereotypes.
