Kendrick Lamar voices his support for Iggy Azalea

Kendrick Lamar believes Iggy Azalea should be allowed to do “her thing”.


The 27-year-old rapper has voiced his support for the ‘Fancy’ hitmaker, who has become a target of criticism for a number of people in the music industry, including Azealia Banks and J. Cole.

However, the Compton-born MC thinks Iggy, 24, ought to be left alone, telling Billboard magazine: “She’s doing her thing. Let her. People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they at. Do your thing, continue to rock it, because obviously God wants you here.”

Earlier this week, Iggy said sexism is to blame for much of the criticism she receives.

She claimed it’s especially difficult for her to succeed in the rap industry because she’s white and female.

Asked if being a woman is linked to the criticism she gets, Iggy replied: “Well, they don’t say that stuff about Macklemore. So, yes, I think it has 100,000 percent to do with the fact that I have a vagina.”

Iggy also said it’s tough being white in the hip-hop industry, but she can’t understand the problem.

Iggy reflected: “I never thought it was strange. If you go back to the Rolling Stones and Elvis Presley and Eminem – they’ve all basically done black music.

“I felt this wasn’t that far from what we’ve seen in music history over and over again.”
