Iggy Azalea can be a divisive figure in the hip hop world.
Though she’s had much success with hit records like “Fancy,” some folks have also accused her of cultural appropriation or having sub-par rap skills.
But despite your own feelings about the Australian rapper, one iconic spitter seems to approve — the one and only Missy Elliott.
Missy gave Iggy a call on Power 106’s “The Cruz Show” earlier this week. Missy explained, “They hit me up and I said I wasn’t gonna miss it.”
The Virginia spitter then went on to tell Iggy “Just keep doing your thing. Congratulations on all your success!”
Iggy was fangirling the whole time saying, “I spent my entire childhood watching her videos, like just wanting to make music videos that could be anywhere near as good as hers. I know that mine aren’t, by the way, because she’s the ultimate GOAT of all-time music videos. She’s just the original girl that doesn’t fit the mold and she’s cool.”
So now that Missy approves, will the naysayers let Iggy through?
Don’t rush to answer that.
