Iggy Azalea Critiques Eminem’s ‘Kamikaze’ Disses
On Friday (Sept. 14) just a few moments after Em dropped his response to MGK’s “Rap Devil,” the “Kream” rapper took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the veteran’s rappers approach to lyrically flaming his enemies.
“Diss songs shouldn’t be filled with celebrity name drops to pad out lazy bars,” she tweeted. The rapper was name-dropped on the Kamikaze cut, “The Ringer.” “I’d just be like everyone else in the f**king industry/Especially an effing Recovery clone of me/So finger-bang, chicken wang, MGK, Iggy ‘zae,” he rapped.
The song was filled with other jabs towards their peers which included MGK, Vince Staples, Lil Xan, Lil Pump and many more.
She also took her critique a step further by complimenting his past work and chopping his new rhymes up to “lazy” wordplay.
“Also let’s talk about why it’s lazy now, but wasn’t in the earlier work,” she tweeted. “The earlier stuff was crazy, twisted and creative. This stuff feels more like picking names that fit easily into a rhyme scheme.”

Iggy was previously targeted in Em’s lyrics on his 2014 track “Vegas” featuring Royce Da 5’9 when he said, “If I let you run alongside the Humvee/Unless you’re Nicki, grab you by the wrist, let’s ski/So what’s it gon’ be? Put that sh*t away Iggy/You don’t wanna blow that rape whistle on me/Scream! I love it. ‘Fore I get lost with the gettin’ off.’”
Iggy also responded to the lyric, citing her disappointment with the rapper.
