"Kinda hard to have an intellectual convo about Hip Hop as a whole when the person you're talking to makes it about 1 person," says Rah.

Earlier this week, Rah Digga proclaimed in an interview with ThisIs50 that Iggy Azalea "isn't hip-hop."

Iggy Azalea it’s like I can’t get into her,” she said. “Because it’s just not real to me. There is a white girl from Australia that spits in an Australian accent, and her name is Chelsea Jane. That I can get into. Teach me Australian Hip Hop culture. Don’t come to America and try to convince me that you’re Gangsta Boo. Personally, I don’t consider her Hip Hop. I listen to her album. Everything that I hear on there is everything but that. And I feel like Hip Hop is Hip Hop.”

Azalea, hearing the interview, took to Twitter to respond. "I honestly don't really mind if I'm described as rap or pop. My passion is purely making music and entertaining," read Azalea's tweet. "its definetly funny seeing ppl get so emotional over it all. What does it matter? music is music and many enjoy mine, no need to feel upset."

Now, Rah has taken the time to respond. Read the series of Tweets below.
