WHAT’S TWEEF?: Azealia Banks vs Iggy Azalea
Looks like the XXL 2012 Freshmen cover really has people in their feelings. Necole Bitchie posted an article that fellow newcomer Azealia Banks was heated because Iggy Azalea (A$AP Rocky’s girlfriend) made the list—the first female rapper to do so since its inception five years ago.
Azealia took to Twitter to express her disbelief and accused Iggy of being a racist. She tweeted:
“Iggy Azalea on the XXL freshman list is all wrong. How can you endorse a a white woman who called herself a “Runaway slave master”? Whatever. Sorry guys. But I’m pro black girl. I’m not anti white girl, but I’m also not here for any1 outside of my culture trying to trivialize very serious aspects of it. In any capacity. *kanye shrug* If u hate my music now because of how I feel about this then I guess it’s my loss. I’ll take that loss.”
Azealia is referring to a line in Iggy’s song “D.R.U.G.S” where she says:
….when the relay starts, I’m a runaway slave….master
Don’t bother including my @ name in any of ur salty thoughts either cause… I’m #blockinthata$$ today!!!!
First female freshman. Ever. Period. Thanks world! I used to stick XXL on my bedroom door, now I’m on the cover. Life is great.
And then Azealia and Necole got into it on twitter:
Are you feeling Iggy Azalea?
