Last night at the AMAs Iggy Azalea took home two awards. One for Favorite Rap/HipHop Album and Favorite Artist Rap/HipHop. Iggy beat out Drakes with his Nothing Was The Same album and Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2. For a while now many artists as well as fans have commented that Iggy is not real Hip Hop. Last year Macklemore beat out Kendrick Lamar for Best Rap Album at the Grammy’s. Do you think we are in an era of Culture Vulture’s? Did Iggy deserve to win her two awards?

Billboard will now start counting streams for their album chart! Welcome to a new era of music! Digital is the new “it,” The Billboard 200 chart has been the official spot for weekly album rankings in the United States since 1956.
