Kendrick Lamar: Obviously God Wants Iggy Azalea Here


(AllHipHop News) Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has had her detractors like Azealia Banks, Lord Jamar, and Rah Digga, but the “Fancy” performer has also garnered support from Hip Hop stars like T.I., Nas, and Questlove. TDE emcee Kendrick Lamar has now offered his opinion about Iggy’s ascension on the music scene.

“She’s doing her thing,” Kendrick told Billboard. “Let her. People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they at. Do your thing, continue to rock it, because obviously God wants you here.”

K. Dot was caught up in some controversy last year surrounding his lost to Macklemore in the Best Rap Album category at the Grammys. There has been a lot of discussion about Azalea’s nomination in the same category for her LP The New Classic. Kendrick takes the high road when asked about the award show’s sometimes poorly received decisions.

“I appreciate [the Grammys] recognizing me,” he added. “That’s not my overall goal… It’s best to just go and enjoy the festivities.”
