Erykah Badu disses Iggy Azalea
Singer Erykah Badu had hosting duties at the 2015 Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, and she took shots during her opening monologue.
One of those shots was directed at Iggy Azalea, who she said was not a rapper.
“As you know, I am the queen of neo soul and people say I have this common effect on rappers: that I make them change gods and wear crochet hats, shoulder pads,” 44-year-old Badu said.
“So they have banned me from all of the hip-hop awards with a sign saying ‘Erykah Badu, leave our rappers alone.'”
She then made a couple of fake phone calls, pretending to a number of artistes, including Iggy Azalea.
“Uh yes? Who is this? Iggy Azalea?” she said. “Yeah, hey. Oh, no, no, no, no, you can come, ’cause what you doin’ is definitely not rap.”
