Music Monday: Iggy Azalea is No Mediocre

By: Tim Van Duyne

Last week at the BET Awards, T.I. and new girl on the block, Iggy Azalea, performed their new single “No Mediocre.” 

The realest also performed her hit track “Fancy.” Pretty impressive for a white rapper from Australia.

Nicki Minaj was front row for both performances, and she didn’t seem too impressed.

Miss Roman has had a choke hold on the female-rap game for years now. The same night Iggy rocked the BET Awards, Nicki won her fifth straight Best Female Hip Hop Artist award.

Nicki has been known to take shots at fellow female rappers before (i.e. Lil’ Kim). In her acceptance speech Minaj may have taken a dig at Iggy. This shot was a little more subtle.

“What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it,” said Nicki.

It’s been rumored that Iggy’s songs have ghostwriters. So Nicki took the spotlight to make sure everyone knows that her sick lyrics are all original.

The “Super Bass” star has since gone to Twitter to clear up the confusion.

Things may be all cute and cuddly right now, but I think things will heat up this year.

Lets see if Iggy can truly give the Queen of hip hop a run for her young money.

Hip hop would be so much better with a rap battle between Iggy and Nicki.
