DJ Mustard Elaborates On "Fancy" & "Classic Man" Comments
A few days ago, DJ Mustard stated what was already obvious to many people: Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" and Jidenna's "Classic Man" sound like complete "rip offs" of his style.

Iggy Azalea Shades Britney Spears Over Lacklustre "Pretty Girls" Single

Petition Asks Billboard To Retract Iggy Azalea's "Top Rap Song" Award
It's difficult to argue that Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" was anything but the biggest rap song of 2014 (unless you're arguing that it's not a "rap" song to begin with, but that's a whole other story). The record sat atop the Billboard Hot 100 all summer, and sold more than any other song in the genre. It was then, unsurprising that Iggy and Charli's duet came out on top at the Billboard awards a few weeks back, but a new petition suggests that it should have been disqualified on a technicality.
