Okay maybe the song isn’t as bad as the title of this post suggests but you know how petty and overprotective I am with all things involving the legacy of Diana Ross. You know, with her being my mother-in-law and all. That’s right, my eternal flame for LaMichael is still burning.

Anyways, Keyshia Cole and Iggy Azalea pick up where “Mo Money, Mo Problems” left off, letting the beat build around the infectious hook of Dirty Diana’s 1980 hit “I’m Coming Out” on their new tune bearing the same name.

Produced by Irv Gotti, the song appears on the soundtrack of the new romantic comedy ‘The Other Woman’. Bonus fact: Nicki Minaj stars as Cameron Diaz’s assistant in the flick slated for release on April 25.

Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross weren’t the only rappers who forgot their bra back at home this week.

Checking In: Iggy Azalea Talks Controlling Her Creative Vision, Saving Cee-Lo And Pusha-T Collaborations For Her Album With Crunk + Disorderly

iggy interview Checking In: Iggy Azalea Talks Controlling Her Creative Vision, Saving Cee Lo And Pusha T Collaborations For Her Album With Crunk + Disorderly

Iggy Azalea is more than just a pretty face that can spit a verse. She is a business woman, who despite what some might think, is in full control of her creative vision.

Azalea made a name for herself via her mixtape Ignorant Art. After label drama with Interscope records, Azalea signed with Grand Hustle Records in March and has been crafting her debut album.

The 22-year-old Australian rapstress spoke with Crunk + Disorderly about her EP out Monday Glory, her highly anticipated debut album and addresses rumors that her mentor T.I. is taking over her career.

You surprised Azaleans this week by releasing the “Murda Bizness” video. It was very creative because unlike doing the standard in the club video, you brought your fans something unique. Could you describe where the concept from the video came from?

People heard “Murda Bizness” and associated all these negative things with it – killing people, etc – that the song just wasn’t about. I wanted to combat that and showcase the intended song meaning in a light hearted way. “Murda Bizness” is about killing your competition. It’s about when you step out of the house and feel like everyone else should’ve just stayed in bed because you’re killing it! To me, stage moms and their children live in this world filled with flashy dressing and fierce competition, which is what the song is about. So I wanted to base my video around pageants.

iggy xxl Iggy Azalea Explains How Beef With Azealia Banks Started

Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj aren’t the only female rhyme spitters at each other necks these days. Iggy Azalea for the first time explained how her beef with fellow femcee Azealia Banks started, saying that the Twitter beef began last year.

While making moves in Kansas City, the leggy rapper sat down with Hot 103 Jamz personality Brooklyn Martino for a chat about music when she was asked about her issues with Banks:

Here’s the link to my song. And fuck Iggy Azalea, I had a song called ‘Pussy’ before she ever did. Here’s a link to my song. It’s better.”
