'Lack of culture': Australian rap artist Iggy Azalea disses homophobic rappers

LAST UPDATED // Friday, 25 April 2014 03:31 Written by // Sabine Brix

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has spoken out about her views regarding homophobia within the hip hop industry, suggesting anti-gay attitudes among straight rappers as having a 'lack of cultture'. 

Azalea maintains that homophobia "comes from ignorance and homophobes not being around gay people."

In an interview with theadvocate.com, she said: "I don't get why some straight men are still so scared of gay people. But I honestly believe it's like anything else. People just need to be exposed to it long enough for it not to be scary anymore."

“That’s the case with a lot of rappers… They haven’t been around very many different people, and a lot of them aren’t very well traveled. It’s just a lack of culture.”

Azalea latest album, The New Classic, debuted at number one in the US iTunes chart.
