Iggy Azalea Opens Up About Issues With Azealia Banks
Australian rapper Iggy Azalea recently had an interview with Brooklyn Martino and when the Grand Hustle artist was asked about the bickering that went on between her and Azealia Banks, the blonde stunner opened up about the issues, saying they started over a year ago…
Iggy said that last September, Azealia made a pop at her on Twitter, saying: “’'I’m next level, I had a song about being a Barbie before Nicki Minaj had a song about being a Barbie. Here’s the link to my song. And f**k Iggy Azalea, I had a song called 'P***y' before she ever did. Here’s a link to my song. It’s better.’”
Iggy explained that she tried to take the humble approach in her Twitter response: "I wrote on Twitter, ‘the best thing you can be is humble, because it's not about who did it first; it's about who did it better.’ Then she wrote back to me and said, 'Beef!' I was like, ‘not really girl. Not really. It's not that deep.’”
She then described the rant of tweets that Azealia sent towards her afterwards, to which Iggy said: “What does ignorant art even mean anyway? Music is not art. Music is culture. That doesn't even make any sense. Then, it was quiet until I got on the cover of XXL and it became me being racist."
On a happier note, Iggy Azalea’s 6-track EP ‘Glory’ is to be released on June 15, whilst her debut album, ‘New Classics’ is due to drop around September.
