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?

The two friends decided not to run for just their problems but for the problems of the world. Londrelle and Ray trained for weeks before the 20 day journey where they ran and walked an average of 35 miles a day.
