Exclusive: Aloe Blacc Reacts To Iggy Azalea, Hip Hop Controversy

On Wednesday night, “Fancy” rapper, Iggy Azalea, took home the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Hip Hop Artist, beating out the likes of Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, Drake and T.I.

Iggy’s win comes on the heels of Azealia Banks’ comments suggesting that the Australian beauty “stole” the hip hop culture. Banks’ controversial remarks last month led to several discussions and arguments, specifically, between her mentor T.I. and Q-Tip. And now, Grammy nominated singer, Aloe Blacc is chiming in.

“I think [hip hop] is a really important culture to understand, to learn about and study the history of,” Blacc told HipHollywood while on the red carpet for The Wedding Ringer. “I got into hip hop back in 1984 … ever since then, I’ve been a huge fan.”

When asked about some of the controversy surrounding Iggy and the state of hip hop, he told us that “for me, it’s a very serious topic. Everybody who gets involved in hip hop should really know the roots, should represent the roots of hip hop and try to advance the genre in a way that is progressive but also respectful to the history.”
