Iggy Azalea agrees with some of the issues detailed in Macklemore’s “White Privilege II.” When TMZ cameras caught up with the “Fancy” hitmaker at Los Angeles International Airport, the Australian rapper didn’t offer details, but says she co-signed some of the content in the racially charged track, just “not the bad stuff about me.”

On “White Privilege II,” Macklemore name-checked Iggy as well as Miley Cyrus and Elvis Presley. “You’ve exploited and stolen the music, the moment/ The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toy with/ The culture was never yours to make better/ You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea,” he raps.

Azalea then responded to a fan on Twitter who asked if she had heard the track, saying, “He shouldnt have spent the last 3 yrs having friendly convos and taking pictures together at events etc if those were his feelings.” (The response also sent Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli firing off tweets.)

She then joked to TMZ that she sent Macklemore a message via carrier pigeon when asked if she had spoken to the “Thrift Shop” MC before offering this response to an inquiry about “white people borrowing from black culture.”

“I think all culture takes from all culture,” Iggy said. “We’re so global now, I think it’s impossible for everybody not to take influence from everybody.”

Azalea is currently working on her forthcoming studio effort Digital Distortion, led by the single “Azillion.”

Friday night at approximately 9:13 p.m. EST, Kanye West dropped a bombshell: SWISH is indeed real and is coming very, very soon — February 11, 2016, to be exact.

As the world collectively lost its sh-t over this news (and over the song-and-a-half Yeezy dropped earlier in the day when he resurrected G.O.O.D. Fridays), another hip-hop star came through with some news of her own: Iggy Azalea is back! With a new song!

“Azillion,” a De-Capo Music Group and D.R.U.G.S.-produced track, popped up on Soundcloud on Friday, and Iggy boldly tweeted it out just after 11 p.m., dedicating the song “4 MY RATZ.”

The Aussie rapper confirmed to fans that 2016 will include some new tunes from the artist, and even teased the lead single off her upcoming album Digital Distortion with a very relatable dance-party-in-the-bathroom video on Twitter.

The single titled “Team” doesn’t have an official release date just yet, but Iggy answered questions about the track with fans on Twitter, along with giving the snippet of what kind of musical creation we can expect from her in the coming year.

Digital Distortion, Iggy Azalea‘s forthcoming second album, sounds like it will, indeed, shake things up.
Azalea, who announced the name of her sophomore EP in October, shared a few related updates with fans very early this morning (December 17). Among them: She’s…singing? Sounds like a pretty significant departure from I-G-G-Y as we know her…
“I ended up writing some last minute hooks with @beberexha and her writing partner a few days last week and really enjoyed my time,” she wrote. “she also convinced me to ugly-sing and it turned out great. i felt very out of my comfort zone, which is always when the good stuff happens.”
And though Iggy’s been keeping details surrounding Digital Distortion quiet, at least one person has been privy to her new tracks.

“I have played (give or take a few small changes) my album to [Charlamagne Tha God] who kindly came and listened to it,” Iggy noted. “He was surprised i had been working and not crying in a fetal position on my couch. i told him i did do a bit of that this year…He seemed to understand a lot of the direction, and gave me honest feedback. I feel good about it..”
Oh, and she’s going to ~FRANCE~!

The Iggy Azalea and Erykah Badu back-and-forth has been an interesting one.

It all started at The Soul Train Awards, when host Erykah Badu said Iggy could participate in the non-rap show because she “definitely” doesn’t do hip-hop.

Then, Iggy seemed to reply by claiming that people discredit her accomplishments. Even if it wasn’t a reply, Erykah quoted that, and said she would never send an Uber for Iggy again.

It didn’t end there. Yesterday, Badu posted this message about her 11 and 6-year-old daughters, Puma and Mars, on Twitter:

We haven’t heard a peep from Iggy Azalea’s Twitter since Nov. 1, but that all changed Tuesday night.

The “Fancy” rapper took to the social media platform to respond to Erykah Badu’s diss from the Soul Train Awards Sunday. But what started as a simple tweet addressing Badu’s jab quickly turned into a rant in which Azalea addressed the delay in her own music and the health of one of her horses.

“We are days from 2016, but i came online today and saw its still cool to try and discredit my 2014 accomplishments. LOL,” she tweeted. “F–king hell. Seems exhausting. Anyway – Ive been enjoying the holiday season and i hope you all have too.”

The feud began when Badu used her opening monologue to address issues she has with the Soul Train Awards, the main one being the fact that rap is “banned” from being honored. While on stage she pretended to call artists she wanted to invite to the awards show, including Azalea.

“Uh yes? Who is this? Iggy Azalea?” she said. “Yeah, hey. Oh, no, no, no, no, you can come, ’cause what you doin’ is definitely not rap.”

The Internet exploded with memes of Azalea’s potential facial expression upon hearing the joke, but she didn’t address it until last night. Finally returning to social media, Azalea continued to give information to her fans and followers.

“I dont really know what im doing with my music release; but im finished (except for getting the features recorded),” she continued. “Right now i live in america and am very close to the Def Jam team; but im actually signed out of the UK. Things are complicated.”

Azalea added that she’s “ready” with her music but has to “restructure some things to work smoother and better…” She noted that the changes to her record would probably take a few weeks, so fans should sit tight for a little while longer.
Taking advantage of her short return to social media, the “Black Widow” performer also revealed that one of her horses might have Lyme disease. “So im a little heart broken but still hopeful about things,” she started to end her rant. “Defender is doing fine and has been consoling me. lol.”
The Aussie performer’s return to Twitter was short-lived. She ended her series of tweets by telling fans she wouldn’t be back until 2016 unless she had any major updates to share.
