What’s In A Name?: Azealia Banks And Iggy Azalea Go At It Over Iggy’s Black Lives Matter Comments

(AllHipHop News) – Will these two ever quit? Is it all in a name? Maybe we will never know the answer to that question, but recently another Twitter war erupted between the two female rappers Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks.

After Iggy made comments about Azealia Banks in a recent front page article in Elle Canada, Ms. Banks took to Twitter to let Iggy know the beef was still alive and well.

In the article Iggy admitted that she regretted that her beef with Azealia Banks got mixed up with her comments on the Black Lives Matter movement.

Iggy also re-affirmed that she “still hate(s)” Azealia Banks, which seemed to only add fuel to the fire.  Check out the excerpt from Iggy’s Elle Canada article and the subsequent Twitter posts from Azealia Banks.

“Umm, yeah…of course. If I could, I would Men in Black memory-erase 2015, I totally would—that would be amazing! Oh, God, there are so many things. I think the Azealia Banks thing is what really started it all. We don’t like each other on a personal level, and that has gone on for many years—before the Black Lives Matter incident happened. So when I dismissed her, people started to think that I dismissed the whole movement, but I wasn’t trying to dismiss Black Lives Matter—I was trying to dismiss her because it’s our personal shit. I don’t think the subject matter of her tweet was invalid; I just think it was emotionally charged and driven by something else, and the whole thing got so misconstrued. I just wish I had acknowledged the issue head-on because it made people think I don’t care about what’s going on socially and what’s happening in America, and I do care. Even though I still hate Azealia Banks, I wish I had said it in a way that didn’t make people think I was oblivious to the movement. And I wish I hadn’t gotten into a fight with Papa John’s!”
