Iggy Azalea Blasts Azealia Banks for Being a ‘Bigot’ and ‘Bully’
Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea are reigniting their beef. After Azealia put Iggy on blast during her emotional interview with Hot 97, the “Fancy” rapper has fired back.
Azealia trashed her rap rival, who was nominated for four Grammys. “That Iggy Azalea shit is not better than any fu**in’ black girl that’s rapping today,” she told Ebro and Peter Rosenberg. “The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence… Iggy Azalea’s not excellent.”
She broke down in tears while discussing the “culture smudging” of America. “When they give these Grammys out, all it says to white kids is, ‘You’re great. You’re amazing. You can do whatever you put your mind to.’ And it says to black kids, ‘You don’t have shit. You don’t own shit, not even the shit you created yourself.’ And it makes me upset.”

“I’m 87 years old…I only eat so I can smoke and stay alive.. The only fear I have is how long consciousness is gonna hang on after my body goes. I just hope there’s nothing. Like there was before I was born. I’m not really into religion, they’re all macrocosms of the ego. When man began to think he was a separate person with a separate soul, it created a violent situation.
The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, to nothingness.
Anybody else you’ve interviewed bring these things up? Hang on, I gotta take this call….. Hey, brother. That’s great, man. Yeah, I’m being interviewed… We’re talking about nothing. I’ve got him well-steeped in nothing right now. He’s stopped asking questions.”
