"White Privilege II"

"You're Miley, you're Elvis, you're Iggy Azalea."

Late last month, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released the controversial track "White Privilege II." 

It's sparked a beef between both Machine Gun Kelly and Iggy Azalea since it's been released and had a mixture of responses.  And well, if you simply read through the youtube comments, some true colors of society are well, displayed.  Ironically enough. 

Take a listen.  Let us know what you guys think.

Hot 97 discussed whether or not Macklemore was simply exploiting a hot topic by seeking approval amongst minorities.

Then, later, both Macklemore and Ryan Lewis appeared on Sway In The Morning to talk about the track.

    That’s actually the first time I stopped and read the lyrics to this song. Being an MGK fan, I was inclined to be on his side, but now I agree with most things Macklemore said on the track. I don’t agree when he calls out Miley and Iggy though, in my opinion cultural appropriation is not a bad thing, as I see it mostly as a show of respect. But it’s valid when he questions if some people do this because it’s who they are or if they do this only because it’s convenient. Overall it’s a great track to put people to think about how society works.
