When Harlem-based rapper Azealia Banks found out that the very-blonde Iggy Azalea made XXL’s Freshman Class list (and she didn’t), she was not too pleased and had a few not-so-nice things to say. Find out about Azealia’s diss inside and also get the deets on what she said about Nicki Minaj and Kreayshawn.
Disclaimer: I barely have a clue who 99% of these chicks involved are and couldn’t pick their song out of a playlist with ONLY their tracks. But since others are fans…
Azealia Banks had a few things to say about XXL Magazine selecting white rapper Iggy for their “2012 Freshman Class” (which also includes Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana, & Roscoe Dash).
“Iggy Azalea on the XXL freshman list is all wrong. How can you endorse a white woman who called herself a ‘runaway slave master’?”
“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.”
Do we smell a beef? Well……Iggy didn’t respond directly to Azealia, but she tweeted a response to her non-lovers saying,
“You can’t block my blessings! Today I’m celebrating! Get with it or kick rocks! 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.”
But Iggy wasn’t the only target of Azealia, who had a few more things to say about other female rappers. On Nicki Minaj, she said,
“The butt, the hair, the this, the that, all the other shit, like… As much respect that I have for her, we’ve seen you do this already, what else can you do?”
Then…….she talked about Kreayshawn saying,
“You’re a dumb bitch. And you can’t rap. I’ll sit on your face. … Fall back slut.”
Keep it classy Azealia.
