In response to recent comments made by Scarface, that hip-hop was becoming "too White and too Jewish," Iggy Azalea responded and respectfully disagreed with his statements. She thinks bringing race into the topic only serves to let segregation exist within the hip-hop culture which she feels is a shame since it's a musical form that is so unifying to people from every cultural background.
"I think you can have a million white men that are executives in a building, but that doesn't make a culture a color. And that's because they can sell you whatever they want, but unless you buy it it doesn't mean anything. So, I think sometimes people get caught up in this thing of 'record labels dictate things and oh no, it's white old guys that are putting this out.' Well, it's not old white men creating the content and it's not old white men buying the content either. Yes, they're the middleman putting this out, but it's just a bank.
"I think what shapes the culture is who's consuming it and that's people of all different colors and that's a great thing. I think this idea of 'rap should be black' or 'rap should be this or that' is worrying to me because it's like—segregation. Why would you want to segregate cultures and races and things like this? Isn't that where conflict has always come from in the world? Shit like that? If we have something in music that is unifying, that other cultures are drawn to...then it should be a positive thing."
