Rapper Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks probably will never be on good terms, especially since Azealia keeps taking shots at Iggy when she feels like it on her social media accounts.

With the country currently divided on the Ferguson situation and confirmation that the cop who killed Eric Garner won’t be facing charges, Azealia is feeling some kind of way about whites coming into Hip Hop and dominating while staying silent on black issues.

So she once again went after Iggy, T.I. and even defended once foe Nicki Minaj (read tweets from bottom to top):

In related news, Azealia’s studio album, “Broke with Expensive Taste,” is receiving high marks from music critics.


    1. I’m not sure why she would be jealous of Iggy. Azealia’s music is great and she’s a very talented rapper. Her CD is honestly one of the best releases this year. And to be honest, her new album sales look like Iggy’s. White media may continue to give Iggy undeserved accolades, but she still can’t sell albums.

      1. Jealous of the popularity. Don’t get it twisted. I am in no way a fan of Iggy but I think she should have more of a problem with Barkley then Iggy regarding these issues.

    2. She’s a c-nt on Twitter but don’t get it twisted…she is a very good rapper and her music is genius. You may sleep on her now but that won’t be the case in a few years. Bet on it.

  1. I don’t always like her delivery, but I really agree when she said this:

    “You can be down without making a mockery.”

    THANK YOU!!!

  2. I said it before and I’ll say it again. No black person should fix their mouth or fingers to defend Iggy. That woman actually rapped on a song about being YOUR slave master. I don’t like Azealia, but she’s spot on with these tweets.

      1. Between Thanksgiving and my birthday weekend it’s been a blur I’m finally getting back to normalcy. I missed y’all though 🙂 .

  3. What she doing is being a bully. Point black period, she will never have a career being so negative whether her feelings are true or not.

  4. I’m glad she put her petty beef with Nicki to the side and is sticking with her people on this!!!! I’m so tried of them trying to make her the queen of Hip Hop. Ugh.

  5. I encourage all of you to listen to Azealia’s album. I’m not a fan of her Twitter pettiness, but her music is in league of its own. She puts Iggy and even Nicki to shame.

  6. Don’t get me wrong. Azealia Banks is a b-tch. A salty b-tch. But there is plenty of truth in what she said. Period.

  7. Azealia ain’t slick. She knew dragging Iggy would help her album sales. I won’t lie, I’m about to go to iTunes right now and buy my copy. LOL.

  8. Oh great. She’s just giving the media another reason to go into defense mode for Iggy like they don’t do it enough already.

  9. I see both sides. But we really do need to go back to a time when artists aren’t afraid to speak up and say the unpopular opinions that need to be said. This was of course before the whole “hater” movement happened and now every time you say something that isn’t popular or rainbows and sunshine, someone says you’re a hater. Iggy made a terrible mistake in how she came into rap. She should have came in being herself because then she wouldn’t get clowned so much for her lack of authenticity. She’s not the first white female rapper but she’s the worst despite all the awards and hype she’s getting.

  10. Someone is always called being jealous or being wack or petty when they defend black women.SMDH, I love Azealia Banks for this one! Spot on.
