Eminem Vs. Iggy Azalea
I love my generation. So when Eminem attacks Iggy Azalea, he’s talking about my generation. Do you believe Eminem and Iggy carefully orchestrated their beef? Why would Eminem risk ruining a good relationship?
I expect Eminem to catch a ball in Left Field. He’s an official Detroit Tiger. Eminem made his career by causing controversy.
This is his calling card. He went after Britney, Mariah and the Spice girls. Iggy Azalea was next. Eminem’s predictable because the rapper always goes after mainstream ‘pop’ stars.
The urban legend is Iggy Azalea has a ghostwriter. She doesn’t write her own lyrics like Eminem and most other rappers. And Nicki Minaj exposed her at the BET Awards.
Maybe, Snoop Dogg is her ghostwriter. He’s known to spell out his name S.N.OO.P. D.O.GG. Iggy spells her name out I.GG.Y.
The Snoop Dogg feud shouldn’t have escalated. As the Nicki Minaj news faded, Snoop stole the spotlight. It’s almost like the rappers think Iggy is a problem.
I’m sorry... Does Iggy Azalea hurt their record sales? Why not work with her, instead of against her? Maybe, I’m missing something.
If you can’t make good music, at least make some sense. It’s senseless to criticize a fellow celebrity. Let the fans listen to their music.
The entertainment industry is a hard enough nut to crack. I say let the nut crackers crack. Let the singers sing. And let the rappers rap. Musicians should stick to making music.
So who’s pulling the strings? Who’s behind the scenes calling the shots? Is it the rappers or the record labels? You know the deal.
I get that the music business is highly competitive. Nowadays musicians are more business minded than ever. Maybe, the Iggy Azalea beefs are all hype. I hope it is.
Still, if you’re a celebrity, you need to grow thick skin. Never allow a little joke to upset you. Iggy Azalea should have sought advice.
Addressing the gangster rapper was a big mistake. Snoop received his education at the school of hard knocks alongside Jay Z & Annie. He’s not Drake, Kendrick Lamar, or J. Cole.
Iggy came back firing on all cylinders. So Snoop declared an all out war. And T.I. had to make peace. If you ask me, this isn’t finished.
They both went too far. Neither one should have acknowledged the other’s insults. Recap: first Nicki, then Snoopy, and now Eminem…
Listen to the rap song Detroit Vs. Everybody. Then, you’ll understand Eminem’s mentality. In his mind, nothing is off limits.
Even if you don’t admire his authenticity, you can’t say he isn’t consistent. When Eminem includes you in his rap, then you are relevant. Does his one-liners do any real damage? It’s a matter of perspective. Still, Eminem should proceed with caution. You have the right to speak your mind and remain silent.
You see Eminem worked his way up the underground. 8 Mile, loosely based on his life, is a great movie. If you make a movie based on a true story, people will want to see proof. Fortunately, Eminem’s story checked out. In fact, Lose Yourself won an Oscar.
The rap community does not support Iggy because she has no street credibility. Eminem originated out of Detroit. The only place that can rival the dangerous ‘D’ is Compton.
So, it’s best for Iggy to ‘shake it off.’ Make a song with Taylor Swift. Get your money and they might respect you. Don’t try to take on the World Star Hip Hop. You’ll lose.
A real winner loses sometime. Iggy Azalea is a winner as long as she sticks to making music. I question why she even needs a publicist.
It takes time to master any game. A player must practice every chance he gets. Before Eminem was famous, he honed his skills.
Eminem gets better with time. That’s why the rap community respects him. He’s not afraid.
Eminem received his education from the old school. He’s not new school like James Franco. The celebrity does his homework. He practices.
People like Eminem because he doesn’t seek their approval. That’s the secret to his success. Iggy can learn a lot from Eminem if she listens.
If Iggy ignores her haters, she’ll break records. But if her ego gets too big, the rapper will burst like a bubble. She has to stay grounded.
I’ve never seen somebody burn bridges they haven’t even crossed yet. Hollywood Boulevard is a two way street. You can’t choose sides.
See How to Be Famous in 7 Steps. Iggy needs to read step #4- Engage your fan base. Instead of engaging fans, her attention is focused on her harshest critics.
Iggy’s still young. So she’ll learn from her mistakes. It’s better to outsmart your opponent than to overpower him.
When taking the high road, hire a limousine driver. You can’t chance it. In the long haul, you need security and a dedicated team.
It seems T.I. is the only person that defends Iggy. That’s why it’s open season on Azalea. She should just build her brand.
Maybe, T.I. is to Iggy, what Dr. Dre is to Eminem and maybe not. You see Eminem signed 50 cent to Shady Aftermath records. Eminem cofounded a rap group in 1996 called D-12.
Eminem made Iggy Azalea possible.
I’ve never heard Brad Pitt talk bad about Johnny Depp. The Movie industry operates differently. What if Iggy started acting?
Will Smith and Mark Wahlberg had respectable rap careers before striking gold on the silver screen. Do you think Iggy compares more with Mark or Eminem?
There are two paths Iggy can choose. She can select the Eminem route or the Mark Wahlberg route. It’s easier to be Wahlberg than Eminem.
To sum it up, T.I. can’t fight all of Iggy’s battles for her. People will start to get the wrong idea. Does T.I. control Azalea’s career?
I’m following this situation because something’s wrong. Fans love Iggy. Rappers love fans. So, why do rappers hate Iggy Azalea?
It defies logic. I am going to get to the bottom of this. Look forward to another one. I am Guru Jay launching off into orbit in 5-4-3-2-1!
