Last week Jill Scott and Eve visited Shade 45’s Sway In The Morning to promote their Lifetime film “With This Ring” and weighed in on the current state of cultural appropriation in hip-hop and Iggy Azalea’s ‘blaccent.”

“She’s from a different place and I’ve said this before: It would be dope to hear her with her swag,” Eve said about the accent. “Who are you, what are you, what is that? Australians are so dope. From the singers, to the music to the fashion. They have it. That’s my only thing about it. I just wish there was a little bit more of possibly inserting where she came from.”

The Australian rapper took to Twitter to subliminally respond.

    Iggy Azalea relocated to the US at the age of 15 and has been living here for 10 years. She grew up on Hip-Hop like many young people around the world. And some of you believe she shouldn’t rap in a “blaccent” or whatever you call it. Shame on you, Eve, and Jill Scott.

    sooo let me get this right… instead of acting as “her” stereotype.. she chooses to act as “ours”? … girl bye!
