Azealia Banks & Erykah Badu Apologize To Each Other
Back in February, two strongly-opinionated females in hip-hop went at each other on twitter. It all started when a random twitter user asked Erykah Badu if she listens to Azealia Banks. Without saying much, Badu quoted the question and put "Tried" beside it. Azealia Banks saw this as shade, and proceeded to extend her claws.

Review: Erykah Badu's "But You Caint Use My Phone"
You don’t peg Erykah Badu as the type of artist to release a mixtape. Her albums are well thought-out, seemingly in every sense. They’re rich with instrumentation, passing as top-notch soul music while keeping a foot in the hip hop scene.
