Iggy Azalea Strikes Back At Ebro And Hot 97 For Being 'Shade Queens'

By HHL Editors

It's been a good few weeks for Iggy Azalea, as a surprising number of big Hop Hip names have defended her in her various authenticity feuds. But the Australian import may have let the support get to her head a bit because in an interview with GQ she said this when asked about her legacy:

I might be here for a long time. At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop. And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great.
The "sparked a change" line has led to a meme in which participants tweet a baffled looking face over Iggy's self-important words.

Hot 97 personality Ebro is among those promoting the meme, and Iggy struck back at him and his Hot 97 cohorts on Twitter today.

 

Iggy continued with her tweeting throughout the day, calling the Hot 97 crew "shade queens" who say nice things to her in private and then bash her on the air. She also likened Ebro to a "bitchy girl at high school."

Is Iggy right about Ebro and Hot 97 having it every which way on her?
