Iggy Azalea Responds To Kendrick Lamar’s Encouragement
Speaking with Billboard for a new cover story, Kendrick Lamar recently publicly encouraged Iggy Azalea to keep “doing her thing” and received backlash from the likes of Azealia Banks and others for separate comments he made about the state of the Black community in the context of the killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson last year.
“She’s doing her thing,” Lamar said of Iggy Azalea. “Let her. People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they at. Do your thing, continue to rock it, because obviously God wants you here.”
On Friday, the same day a preview of Kendrick’s cover story was released, Azalea alluded to the comments vaguely in her own Tweets.
Someone I know makes a positive judgement about me and as a result a million people who know neither of us are outraged. Irony Is real.
