Steve Aoki and Iggy Azalea join forces for “Beat Down.” This goes HAARRRDDD, this is maybe the only song from Iggy that I really fuck with to be honest. “Murda Bizness” was not my thing, I loved looking at her in “Pussy,” but this that shit right here. Maybe mainly cause of the beat, but who the hell cares.
“What you looking at/ do I got something in my eye/ do I got shit up on my face/ or did my hair catch on fire/ cause you really really staring/it must be something that you like, geeze/ ask for my number/ or you could fly a kite.”
In an interview with The Women Of Hip Hop Eve revealed that she will be releasing some music this year. Rap-Up gave us the important parts typed out. This saved me a lot of work.
On her new music: “I’m gonna throw out a viral single at the end of this month before the official single. I’m probably gonna throw out a couple records before the radio single. My whole goal for this record, since it’s been so long, I wanted to make sure that my core audience didn’t feel like Eve completely forgot about us and went to another side. I feel like this record is well rounded. It has enough of the hard street stuff, it has some radio stuff, but it also has some stuff that people can listen to when they’re feeling down.”
On new female rappers:
“I like Azealia Banks. I think her style is dope. If you listen to her lyrics, she knows how to wordplay and I think that’s cute. I’m not really into the Iggy Azalea chick. I can’t really fuck with her music, but her look is crazy. I just can’t believe it.”
On her dream collaboration: “Lauryn Hill has always been my one dream collaboration. She to me is so dope lyrically. Unfortunately, she’s just in a place right now mentally, but that would be a dream come true.”
On which five female MCs she would put on a record: “I would definitely have to get Missy [Elliott]. I would definitely have to do Kim ’cause I never got to do a record with Kim. Azealia Banks, I like her. A lot of people want me to hate on Nicki and say crazy things about her. I ain’t got nothing to say about her. Until somebody names me by name, then I don’t feel like nobody [is talking] about me. I wouldn’t have a problem putting her on a record.”
On the Lil’ Kim vs. Nicki Minaj feud: “It’s not about publicity. It’s about wanting that respect. I think maybe that’s where Kim is coming from, like, you’re doing your thing right now and no one can take that away from you, Nicki—we all see it—but at the end of the day, if it wasn’t for Kim, she wouldn’t be here and that shit is real.”
I don’t care about the dance, but damnn she’s sexy.
After waiting a long time, Iggy finally drops “Murda Bizness” featuring T.I.
Azealia Banks had an exchange of words with Iggy Azalea over the XXL cover/Iggys slave master line. I thought this shit ended, but it didn’t.
T.I. and crew was on DJ Drama’s radio show to introduce his new roster. Drama had some question for him and the crew, one of them was about the Azealia Banks’ comments on Iggy being on the cover of the XXL Freshmen.
T.I. came to Iggy’s defense asking if Azealia Banks was not happy with Iggy being on the cover or that she was not happy for not being on it herself. That’s a question I would like to hear the answer to. T.I. went further saying that he’s not familiar with the “212” rapper and said, I quote:
“strategically if she really cares about a freshmen cover maybe she could hope that she’ll suck enough to get shelved and then next year when the freshmen cover comes back around, maybe she’ll still be a freshman.”
TIP didn’t stop there and kept going on by saying, “If you spend half of your day getting money and the other half of your day counting money, you ain’t got no time in your day to worry about nobody else.”
Azealia apparently saw the video below and took it to her twitter to react on what T.I. had to say.

We’ve seen a couple of new rappers over the last couple of months. I noticed an increase in new female rappers, especially white female rappers.
First we had Kreayshawn, I don’t know where she’s been after that “Gucci Gucci” track, but I bumped that one for a while. After she got released from prison, Kreayshawn’s partner in crime, V-Nasty also brought us some music. She released a collaborative album with Gucci Mane, entitled BAYTL. She also disappeared after that.
We had the very sexy Iggy Azalea, which was named the new Tupac by Jimmy Iovine. The latest to get on my radar is Snow Tha Product who is signed to Atlantic.
Check the clips below and share your thoughts. Do these girls have the potential to get big in hip hop?
