Iggy Azalea speaks on some comments Funkmaster Flex made about her record.
Iggy Azalea is a divisive artist. So divisive, that one radio host was compelled to express his distaste for her record, after playing it on air. That DJ was Funkmaster Flex. According to Iggy, he called her record "trash", and while she maintained that the two were on good terms, she brought up the question-- why would he play it?
On HOT 97's morning show, Iggy explained the situation to the unknowing hosts. âI heard your Funkmaster Flex friend go like psycho,â she said. âHe basically played the record and then was like, âI hate that record! Iggy Azalea is trash! And itâs like, well then donât play the record then.â
She made sure to stress that she did not want to pursue a conflict with the DJ. âWe donât have beef,â she said. âIâve been very nice about it. Iâve never said anything about it besides just now...It got ignored but noted.â
The Aussie rapper later spoke on general criticisms of her music.Â âEverything is subjective. Some things are for you and some things just arenât for you. I canât beef at everybody," she explained. "Some people might not like the way I sound, some people might not like that I rap in an American accent and Iâm Australian. Some people might not like that Iâm White and they feel the things that I do are stereotypically Black. Some people might not like that they think things I say donât have substance or I should rap about other things. Itâs subjective, some people love that about me, thatâs music and thatâs art. You canât beef with everybody.â
