Janelle Monae & Jidenna Respond to Iggy Azalea’s ‘Classic Man’ Comments
Janelle Monae and Jidenna had some choice words for Iggy Azalea in their joint interview on Ebro in the Morning regarding Iggy’s tweets about Jidenna’s “Classic Man.”
The popular track has been hitting the airwaves all summer, but Iggy made it very clear on Twitter that it was sampled from her single “Fancy.”
@SpaceJamIggy thats true, i get a % of it.

Jidenna had no problem admitting that Iggy does in fact get a portion of the “Classic Man” worth, but made it very clear that it was not sampled. Instead, based on the decision from the Robin Thicke and Pharell case, he’d rather be safe than sorry.
Janelle, on the other hand, didn’t mix words, but still kept it classy, when she blatantly commented, “She steals from us, we steal back.”
Watch Janelle set the record straight with her artist, and more, above.
