Power 105.1 radio host Charlamagne is known for speaking his mind whenever he wants to. And his latest pontification about Iggy Azaleaâ€™s place in hip hop history has had Twitter pressed on fire.
On a recent episode of MTV2â€™s Uncommon Sense, Charlamagne called the Australian rapper â€œa hip hop legend.â€
â€œWhether you like it or not, Iggy Azaleaâ€™s a hip-hop legend,â€ he said, arguing she debuted in a year â€œthat was very bad for Black peopleâ€ and thus has been unfairly targeted for her vocal Blackface.
While his fellow co-hosts disagreed with his assessment, Charlamagne held firm. â€œI will always give Iggy Azalea her props, I have supported Iggy from day one.â€
