Macklemore is taking aim at white artists — especially Miley Cyrus and Iggy Azalea — for jacking black culture to get rich, while ignoring the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Seattle rapper just released “White Privilege II” … questioning Miley’s, Iggy’s and even his own motives for doing hip-hop music. In the song’s 2nd verse he says:

“You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea
Fake and so plastic, you’ve heisted the magic
You’ve taken the drums and the accent you rapped in
You’re branded hip-hop, it’s so fascist and backwards
That Grandmaster Flash’d go slap it, you bastard”

It seems he’s lumping himself in with both women — and the criticisms they all hear about their music — but Iggy’s taken it very personally. She tweeted, “he shouldn’t have spent the last 3 yrs having friendly convos and taking pictures together if those were his feelings.”

But the song isn’t really about Iggy — you really have to hear the whole thing — Macklemore goes on to rap more about his own guilt for joining protests
