OOOPS. Tell em' Janelle!

Noted culture thief, Iggy Azalea is often the topic of discussion on Hot 97's Ebro In The Morning. The largely hip-hop and rap focused radio show is not shy about taking shots at Iggy Iggz for obvious reasons. Their most recent guests to take such shots were Jidenna and his mentor Janelle Monáe. 

Things took an interesting turn when they turned to the subject of the Australian rapper and why she mysteriously has a writing credit on Jidenna's Classic Man. Classic man features west coast beats but that doesn't necessarily translate to writing credits. 

When probed about the decision, Jidenna cited Robin Thicke's landmark "Blurred Lines" ruling as a reason for precaution. Janelle Monae was much less diplomatic.
