Australian rapper Iggy Azalea called out recently Youtube for their unfair treatment of her new music video named ‘Sip It‘ by shared a serious statement on her Twitter account.
Iggy Azalea released a new music video of ‘Sip It,’ in collaboration with rapper Tyga, on YouTube on April 2. The video has been viewed by more than 2.5 million people, but Iggy made it clear that she was not satisfied with the statement she made on Twitter.
On Saturday, Iggy called out Youtube to address the unfair treatment of the crew of the huge video platform. In her tweets, the 30-year-old rapper said that Youtube won’t recommend her music video or add it to trending because of the ‘content in the video.’
Iggy, who was not getting a response from Youtube for 48 hours, said that she was trying to figure out why the more controversial videos than her own music video were on the trend list.
Iggy Azalea, whose real name is Amethyst Amelia Kelly, was disappointed by this unfair situation. She thought that they treated her like this because she is an independent artist. She also said that Youtube sent the music video to the employees 1 week before the release and they said the video was ‘perfect and no issues.’
Here’s what Iggy Azaela stated:
“So @YouTube won’t recommend my video or add it to trending because of the “content in the video” I’ve waited 48 hours and still can’t get a real answer from anyone at YouTube about why they have far more controversial videos in their trending list as week speak.”
Iggy Azaela also shared another tweet and said the whole industry is as rigged as the Grammys are:
“The Grammys are rigged as fuck and y’all know that now and collectively agree but forget the whole biz is ran by the same mfs planning THAT event… so why don’t you believe the whole industry is the same way… This YALL logic.”

I’m really disappointed because I’m indie and I depend on things like that for streaming. I sent my video in to their staff a week prior and they told me it was perfect, no issues.
I don’t really feel like it’s fair, and I really wish someone at @youtube would resolve it. 2/2
