Lil Debbie Challenges Iggy Azalea to Make a Hit Solo Single

Bay Area rapper wants Aussie to release music without any guest features.

Published September 3, 2014

Lil Debbie has a special request for Iggy Azalea, she wants the Aussie rapper to release a hit single without any guest features. Azalea has so far earned a trio of Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, Ariana Grande's "Problem" and the Rita Ora-assisted "Black Widow." 

"I would like to see from Iggy, as another female white artist, if that’s what we’re going to say that we are, I want to see you put out one hit song that has nobody at all on it, not any other artist,” Debbie told HipHopDX Tuesday (Sept. 2). "None. Not Rita Ora. Not Charli [XCX]. Nobody. Not T.I. Not DJ Mustard. Not nobody.”

She continued, “I want you to put one hit out, catchy song. That’s it. I just want you to put on. You’re right under Nicki Minaj so put on for us, make a hit song that has nobody else on it ‘cause all I’ve seen so far is Rita Ora, Charli XCX. That’s all that I’ve heard on the radio."

Azalea has released music without another artist attached, namely “Work,” the lead single from her The New Classic debut. The song went gold but failed to crack the Top 40 on Billboard’s singles chart. 

Meanwhile, Debbie’s music challenge could be motivated by a not-so-positive experience she had with Azalea, back before the 24-year-old rapper blew up.

“The b---- acted like she was too good for me,” she recalled of their meeting. The Bay Area native also noted that she's felt discriminated against by other artists since relocating to Los Angeles, and that no one wants to work with her or acknowledge her presence.
