*The topic of Iggy Azalea came up during an appearance by Eve and Jill Scott on Sway Calloway’s Sirius satellite show, Sway In the Morning.
While promoting their new Lifetime movie “With This Ring,” Sway pivoted to the topic of cultural appropriation and how the Australian rapper is at the center of this discussion.
Eve made it clear that she’s not a fan of Iggy, but added, “She’s representing a group of girls right now as well. I think people right now are too quick to give too many accolades to new people. That’s the one thing I just can’t stand. Let her do her thing. It’s not my cup of tea but she’s representing for somebody. She’s doing her thing. What are you gonna do?”
Jill Scott, however, didn’t hold back. She said Iggy is a “big bite” of Da Brat and Eve. The two also shared that they’ve spent time in Australia and wish the new rapper would be more authentic with her “swag” instead of speaking in what Eve refers to as a “blaccent.”
“She’s from a different place and I’ve said this before, it would be dope to hear her with her swag,” said Eve. “Who are you, what are you, what is that?”
