What happened to talent? Did it die when the legendary Whitney Houston died? Is it posted up in a jail cell that Lil Kim resided in? Maybe it is hiding under a rock somewhere too embarrassed to show itself since no one knows what to do with it anymore. If anybody knows where it is at I’d appreciate it if you can return it back to its rightful owner. Please.
I never understood how newbies in the rap game could start a beef with other artists when they themselves have not established a strong platform or an album for that matter. For a good minute up and coming wanna-be rap artist Azealia Banks have been spewing out empty cracks and talking out both sides of her neck about why she should be on top and all of the female artists should bow down to her. In my best Janet Jackson voice, what have you done for hip hop lately?
This unknown got pretty upset when white female emcee Iggy Azalea got on the cover of XXL for the freshman class issue; by the way she is the first female to do that. She also got into it with the King of the South T.I. for signing Iggy to his label. Now Azealia is attempting to remain relevant by starting a beef with Lil. Kim.
Allegedly Azealia requested Lil Kim to drop a verse on a song for her upcoming album; she even wrote the lyrics so Lil Kim wouldn’t have to strain her brain and plus a little birdie told her Lil Kim doesn’t write her own ish (uuuuhhhhh, shocking!) Lil Kim got offended supposedly and declined the offer. Azealia took to Twitter about the situation blasting the legend then stupidly admitting to her lack of authenticity by saying she will continue to copy Lil Kim’s style and deny her credit where it is due.
First of all why would anyone admit to copying another artist whole persona? How do she expect to make a name for herself? Or how do she even expect to be taken seriously in the rap game? About a week ago I finally checked her out on YouTube and I was highly disappointed. My stomach and head began to hurt after listening to a few of her tracks. This girl needs to do some serious soul searching because her lyrics are garbage. I’m slowly understanding why she was not on that cover, she is no where near any of their level. Hyping up an imaginary beef with another female emcee is her only hope of being somewhat relevant. Lil Kim only responded with a little chuckle on Twitter. If this little girl spend as much time as she does starting ish on an album she might have a chance at a lucrative career. But why beef with Lil Kim? She’s been pulling bad music since she got out of prison proving that talent was left in the cell and needs to have a release date soon. I would think she would go hard against Nicki Minaj since that is who is commercially hot right now. Wait…hearing her lyrics made me realize she is not that smart.
So going back to my original question, what happened to talent? Does it exist anymore? Why do female rappers feel compelled to compete with each other anyway? By now I would think people would realize that it’s enough room for all of you. Little girl (Azealia) please go sit down and allow real female hustlas to do damage to the rap game. You really need to go back to the drawing board and rethink those bubble gum rhymes and bad imitations of personalities you attempt to pull off. Thankfully Iggy is not with entertaining this gnat; she trying to make that money and live her dream. Take notes Azealia and quit your day job of hatin and throwing tantrums.
Peace and luv!
