Iggy Azalea’s longtime rap nemesis, Azealia Banks, has made it her business over the past few years to put her on blast… and it continued this week.
After a grand jury ruled that the NYPD officer at the center of the Eric Garner homicide would not be indicted, Banks took to Twitter to call out Iggy for not commenting on the situation. Specifically, she feels her white counterpart should publicly voice outrage over the Garner controversy because of her position within the hip-hop community.
“Its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen… Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren’t huh?” the rapper tweeted. “If you’re down to ride with us b***h you gotta RIDE ALL THE WAY
“Don’t just be down to ride Black D*ck…If you with us you WITH US,” Banks continued.
Later, Banks takes a shot at Iggy’s mentor T.I., while offering praise for Nicki Minaj. “Nicki is a hard-working rap-BEAST. stop trying to degrade and BELITTLE Our culture with this fucking kkk iggy shit. And the media needs to STOP trying to move igloo in on what Nicki has established,” she wrote, before adding: “AND I DARE THAT SHOE-SHINING COON T.I TO SAY SOMETHING.”
When Iggy finally responded, she referred to Banks as a social media troll.
“Theres more to sparking a change than trolling on social media. World issues shouldnt be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles,” Iggy tweeted. “Make sure you do something to let YOUR government know how you feel when something is unjust., not JUST your followers on twitter…”
