Azealia Banks Calls Out T.I. For Defending Iggy Azalea

Azealia Banks says T.I. is "corny" for defending Iggy Azalea.

It's the battle of the similarly-named emcees as Azealia Banks continues her criticism of Iggy Azalea.

In a recent interview with DJ Drama, T.I. defended his new artist, Iggy Azalea, from Banks' barbs, which includes questioning Iggy's use of the term "slave master" in her rhymes and her placement on the XXL Freshman Cover.

In the interview, Tip simply replied, “Strategically if she really cares about a freshmen cover maybe she could hope that, you know, she'll suck enough to get shelved and then next year when the freshmen cover comes back around, maybe she'll still be a freshman. Which brings me to my next philosophy, if you spend half of your day getting money and the other half of your day counting money, you ain't got no time in your day to worry about nobody else.”

Banks, however, did not take kindly to T.I. jumping in to Iggy's defense, taking to Twitter:

    black men will always put black women down for a white woman makes them think they sticking it to the white man but in actuality they just putting more money in the wite mans pockets and putting their foot on the heads of their own race...you never see white people defending anything black like these idiots be going all out for them...

      "you never see white people defending anything black..." You should really look up the definition to words like "never" or "anything". You sound delusional.

    runaway slave master???? T.I. is a house nigga!!!!

    • True dat

      Word. When I was growing up I never thought I'd be hearing white bitches rappin calling us niggas and they the slave masters. Smmfh.

  • Anonymous

    O.K... If Azealia Banks REALLY cared about the so-called insensitive nature of Iggy's lyrics, why is she commenting about it after the fact that she got put on the cover of the new XXL, and not when Iggy's name was bubbling? Banks doesn't care about what Iggy said, she cared about her making the cover of XXL... She should stop throwing shade at another MC coming up, and just focus on her music and her grind. She claims to be one of Kanye West's mentors right? She should ask him about the value of KEEPING YOUR MOUTH SHUT.

  • black melancholy

    this white bitch called herself a slave master and this nigger is out there defending the hoe. a black man is the first in line to defend a white bitch. im riding with banks on this one. banks will destroy and clown the fuck outta this skinny nigga. she's too cold for this australian pretender and that black clown.

    I'm more comfortable with Iggy than Kreayshawn

  • Raiden

    They're both Wack. Iggy Azalea is the funniest though, an Australian rapping with an american accent..... That shit is dumb as hell. Just goes to show how fake everything is these days.

    • ETK

      Manufactured, oh WOW... every god damn thing in the game is manufactured, all the way down to your favorite rapper. Stop being full of it man, you ain't kidding nobody and this is still petty shit. She's big over there, that means Australians don't give a fuck.. But yall here catchin feelings so suit yourself

    • Mr Flamboyant

      Thank you Raiden. I swear some of these new niggas (ETK for example) are more blinded and stupid that ever. How the fuck can you even defend such foolishness when clearly SHE'S NOT RAPPING IN HER NATIVE ACCENT!! She's manufactured, homie. Case closed. And T.I. needs to put out an album worth a fuck rather than defend a piece of shit he just signed simply for cashing in on an microwave act. Get off of Akon's dick.

    • Raiden

      @ETK: Defending Iggy's accent is pointeless. When you rap you have to attempt to be true to yourself, and that starts with the simplest things such as your accent. If she's clearly talking with an Australian accent, why cant she rap with an Australian accent? Or are people so gassed by her, that we cant point out such fundamental flaws? Is It a case where she knows, she wouldn't have been accepted/considered more accessible amongst Americans without It? Hip Hop labels managed to get rid of dope female rappers like Bo$$, when they were revealed to have had a middle class background, but an Aussie with an american accent gets a pass? What a fucking joke!

    • ETK

      it is if you throw the word fake at everything that moves, no I wouldn't be feelin that cause somebody's accent is fuckin irrelevant. officer ricky is fake. little ass rappers spittin about how they millionaires is fake. this is petty shit you should get over.

    • Anonymous

      "It's not like she hides Australian culture"? You're an idiot. What if T.I started rapping every verse in an Australian accent from now on would you be feeling that? So is anything or anyboody fake anymore? Or is any criticism of anything "hating"?

    • ETK

      no it's you bitch niggas labeling every god damn thing as fake nowadays. an australian rapping with an american accent, that's not fake, it's a different style you goon. it's not like she hides her australian culture...

  • YESSIR

    YEAH IZZY SHOULD HAVE SIGNED WITH YMCMB THAT OTHER BITCH FROM NYC GOT EVEYTHING GROWING UP WHICH I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH BUT SHE SAID HER MOMS WAS MAKING 90K A YEAR BUT THEY WERE ABUSING THE SYSTEM LIVING IN RENT CONTROLLED HOUSING.

    • ETK

      he ain't dissed nobody, he defended for his girl who just got signed in his label... furthermore, you wanna mention 50 Cent? same guy who told T.I. his wife shoulda taken the rap for him for that one-year sentence before Tip told him to fuck off? guess who's the man with class here

      Go get an education. Couldn't understand a damn thing you said. Uneducated idiots have no place in this world.

    • Lars

      Wow, if you're a brother, then it's a damn shame reading what you posted, or any color at that. You probably are a racist to your own kind with those hurtful comments, and the fact that weaves are common among the african american demographic, just gives me an idea of what you think of your own kind. Get help, because it seems you have MAJOR issues towards women with that language, and are probably abusive. Seek help man. One

    both of them are not even a great artist stop seeking attention your both wack your musics are irrelevant and nobody will listening to your records so stop rapping and do something else rap was built for real artist not for some losers who are dissin each other

    Never heard of either of these chicks... *Goes & clicks on Iggy Azalea's "Pu$$y" Video & Azealia Banks 212 video* *clicks both of them off after a few seconds* *rinses out ears & goes back to listening to Army of the Pharaohs*

    • Mr Flamboyant

      @anonymous Bitch nigga...who are you to say or tell anyone who they aren't aware or whatever? Stupid ass I don't know who either one of these lame duck doo doo ass broads are! I don't listen to radio or follow stupid ass shit. I read about the Iggy chick and her story and was blah...she's not doing it for the love of the shit. She's just another mufucka raping the damn culture with her impression of what hip hop is and getting millions from it. The black chick...I have NO idea who she is. None. She looks decent though. But so does Nicki Minaj and we all know how she ended up. Go take a milk bath or something, you silly soft nigga.

      Listening to a song for a few seconds = immediately knowing everything about the song

      No, seriously...I had no idea who either of them were before today. Saw this link on facebook & that's how I found out.

    I don't listen to any of the two, but T.I. gave her the best reply one could give. If anything, Azealia Banks is corny for that pic.

  • iamhiphop

    @So Icy Boi you are clearly retarded. Iggy is dope, but she is nothing like Tupac. And as for Azaelia, while I like her music, she's clearly doing this for publicity, even as far as dissing T.I., who is still a great rapper, no matter what anyone says.

    • JHighness

      That dude has to be trolling but I'm kinda confused if he's forreal. His name tells me he's forreal, though.

  • So Icy Boi!

    co-sign. T.I. is. corny. as. fuck. Weezy iz da shit.... but Iggy iz dope az fuck. damn she haz skillz. shez da Tupac Amaru Shakur of our generation. she needz to sign to YMCMB aka da realest label eva. swag
