Iggy Azalea & Azealia Banks 'Dissed' By Karmin

Wiz Khalifa, Mike Posner, and Machine Gun Kelly aren’t the only ones flexing their rap skills on the remix to Drake’s “Started From the Bottom.” Karmin’s Amy Heidemann steps to the mic to give the fellas a run for their money.

The fierce femcee busts some boastful bars about landing the cover of Rolling Stone, performing on “SNL” before releasing an album, and getting “pimp slapped by Paul McCartney.”

I didn’t rap last year, learned it as a fluke/ Check it, all the other labels tried it too/ Signed a couple copycats copying my hairdo,” rhymes Amy. “Stop all the comparing me, no Nicki Minajery/ Let me out the cage so I can fizz ’cause all of feminity is looking for a rapper queen/ Banking on Azealia and Iggy/ Pretty damn amazing what you do to be a star.

The duo is readying its full-length album for release this year on Epic Records. Check Amy’s flashy flow below.


It's hard to tell what exactly Heidemann is trying to say with that line — it could be an oblique reference to Banks' penchant for Twitter beefs, or it could mean next to nothing like millions of other vague rap lines.

Either way, this is a situation where Banks' ignorance works in her favor. If she doesn't know who Karmin is, she should definitely keep it that way. Never find out who Karmin is! We should all be so lucky. Thanks for nothing, SNL.

Fortunately this won't save any of them from irrelevance.

lmao it was played in movie theaters where I live last summer before some movies and it's such a damn earworm.

why does everyone think they can be a rapper?
nathanandbarry 26th-Feb-2013 06:55 pm (UTC)
right? everyone is turning into Kevin Gnapoor. It's like, "Actress/Badass M.C." "Housewife by day. Badass M.C. by night." "You may know me by my Disney Channel Original movies but what you don't know is that I am a badass M.C."

Why can't you just go to a damn concert like everyone else?

They all were able to memorize some Busta Rhymes lyrics and think it means they have talent.
coldmemory 26th-Feb-2013 06:41 pm (UTC)
WHO. i mean, you rode a youtube cover to an SNL performance that NO ONE was here for and now...
fight4thislove 26th-Feb-2013 06:41 pm (UTC)
I honestly don't think it was a diss.

The Iggy/Azaealia line clearly references how their fanbases are clearly divided. People ARE banking on one of them to be BIG and its a line drawn in the sand. The next bar is 'Pretty damn amazing what you do to be a star/Rolling Stone dude gave us one' I do not think is a diss towards Banks or Azalea, merely referencing that you have to do crazy things to be a big star.

idk, people are reaching

Isn't that saying their album only got one star in Rolling Stone?

1.5 stars but close enough.

I saw a Karmin video when I was in a Carl's Jr the other day and I thought, "This must be what hell is like."

iheartfamke 26th-Feb-2013 06:46 pm (UTC)
Even tho I dislike Karmin a lot, you gotta give that bitch props for actually coming through with a record and a few hit singles when she came from youtube. All while Iggy and Azaelia are most likely gonna ride the flop train with Kreayshawn when their debuts finally drop.
logan_lerman 26th-Feb-2013 06:47 pm (UTC)
you aint lyin

Iggy is opening for Nas next month and her new single that premiered last week is already playlisted on BBC Radio 1Xtra & the 'record of the week' on Radio 1...
