Anonymous asked: you really prefer iggy to azealia? really doe

Meh, I’m not in love with either of them. I think I’m just fascinated with Iggy’s beauty/mediocrity the way some people are about Lana Del Rey — like a living Sofia Coppola film, or something. She does have a few decent songs, though, and her story about coming from this bumfuck town in Australia at 16 and making a career for herself in the rap industry is pretty cool.

Azealia is the better rapper, clearly, but I haven’t found any of her songs that I really enjoy musically other than 212 (and I listened to all that I could find on YouTube). I want to like her more than I do, but I just feel like she hasn’t found the right production yet. Time will tell on that one.

Either way, there is a very long list of female rappers that I enjoy much more than either of them, but I’m pretty sure society has a quota of, like, 5 famous female rappers that, once filled, cannot be exceeded. Guess I’ll have to wait for Nicki Minaj to spontaneously combust for another one to move up the ranks.

And on that note, I am so goddamn tired of Nicki Minaj, and I actually do like some of her songs, too. I also like macaroni and cheese, though, and if that were all I ever got to eat, every day, for the next three years… you get where I’m going here.

Gentlemen prefer blondes.
