Forbes Says Iggy Azalea “Runs Hip-Hop” And Nicki Minaj Isn’t Having It

Forbes Says Iggy Azalea “Runs Hip-Hop” And Nicki Minaj Isn’t Having It


She’s created an empire that is not only one to recognize, but to respect. Her newest venture with Myx Moscato has been sweeping the nation and even making its way overseas.


Nicki states,


“Ok, I’m reloaded. Listen, all Forbes needs to worry about is my finances and when I’m going to be selling Myx Fusion for $250 million. That’s all they need to worry about. We rely on Hip Hop journalism and blogs for THAT kind of information. So we appreciate that, but no thank you.”


Other sources respond:


Rapper and former MTV VJ Amanda Diva: According to @forbes Hip hop is run by Iggy Azalea STOP “REPORTING” ON WUT U DONT KNOW/UNDRSTND

Writer Michael Arceneaux: Ha @ this Forbes article declaring that Iggy Azalea runs hip-hop. 52k albums in a week ain’t running a thing, but nice try.

Journalist Brian B.Dot Miller: cultural tourism alert

Journalist David Dennis, Jr.: 52K copies sold does not equal “taking over” anything. Any time a White person gets even marginal success in rap, some assholes get together to write about how they’re “TAKING OVER’

Senior Editor for Ebony.com Jamilah Lemieux: Iggy Azaelia was bound to happen, the industry wanted it, the folks who are hip hop’s biggest consumers wanted it and us? We let it happen. We get excited when someone deems our culture worthy of appropriation. Until we start getting shut out.
