Iggy Azalea Explains How Azealia Banks Beef Began

By Miranda Johnson

After the continuous Twitter jabs between these two rap divas, Iggy Azalea has finally given the scoop on the origin of the beef. The Grand Hustle rapper recently sat down for a chat with personality Brooklyn Martino in which she explained how things got sour with her and rival Azealia Banks.

Iggy went on to explain that the Harlem MC first popped off on her about a year ago, stating that she was not a fan of Azalea’s “Pu–y” record. “It actually started at CMJ Music Festival back in September when she went on Twitter and said, ‘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— Iggy Azalea, I had a song called ‘Pu–y’ before she ever did. Here’s a link to my song. It’s better.”

Then the issues only escalated from that point when Azalea was featured on the cover of XXL’s Freshman issue, causing Banks to publicly voice her disapproval. That was then soon followed by the Harlem rapper’s accusations that Iggy was racist due to her “runaway slave master” line on her controversial ‘D.R.U.G.S’ track.

However, fellow emcee and friend of both, A$AP Rocky does not seem to agree with the path these two ladies have chosen. On a recent visit to “RapFix Live” Rocky stated, “I know both of ‘em, and I feel like they shouldn’t be beefin’. They both comin’ up; they need to get along,” Rock said. “I think they’d make a dope song together, personally.”
