    Queen Iggy <3 Happy for her success.

  • Bubbah

    Every music genre started by blacks, has been copied and stolen by whites!! Even twerking is considered a white thing. Even though blacks and Hispanics have big butts by way of genetics, that too has become a thing of WHITE beauty. Oh! And cornrows are only beautiful if worn by a white woman. Go figure.

      I cannot speak from back in the day, but this day in age, BLACK FOLKS ARE GIVING WHITE FOLKS THE POWER.

    This article basically sums up my opinion. Her music is top 40 friendly. She’s far far from running hip hop. I don’t hear her music on urban radio. Sorry.

    Come on HHW.. what do you expect from a Forbes article about Hip Hop?

  • Charla

    So I guess this Forbes guy is on Iggy’s payroll? I’ve heard her voice on the radio only once and I wouldn’t even be able to guess what that song was. Some stardom….

      Let’s take it back to the origins.. PUBLIC ENEMY told us not to believe the hype..but I’m with u on your comment. Iggy is trash, but the complexion is her ticket. I even attempted to look up a performance, just for clarity before judgement..
      Still trash.

  • yeahok

    She proved that if you get butt injections and make your voice sound funny you can become a pop-rapper

    • R!-Goddamn-Diculous

      No, Nicki proved that lol…

  • newsjunkie

    Where’s Forbes PR?

  • Mel

    I don’t ever use the word racism lightly but I don’t know how else to explain the success of this person who is called a “rapper” but is an absolutely awful lyricist who embarrassingly hides her real accent in favor of an Urban Southern accent and has what appears to be injections (you know where) to mimic the natural physicality of black women. She’s a parody act, a blatant attempt to whitewash and pop-ify rap music. The fact that most black rappers today are coons themselves certainly doesn’t help the matter.
