Iggy Azalea and T.I. are Azealia Banks' most recent victims on Twitter, whom she attacks for keeping mum on pivotal black issues.
Since getting droppedÂ by Universal Music Group this summer,Â Azealia Banks has kept herself busy, but not in the way you'd think. Instead of working on new music, she's practicing her favorite pasttime: attacking people through Twitter. Remember when she deleted her accountÂ back in 2013 after starting too much beef? Well, she's at it, again. Her list of victims has included everyone from EminemÂ and Angel HazeÂ to A$AP Rocky and Perez Hilton, and her current targets are Iggy Azalea (whom she calls "Igloo") and T.I.Â Her volley of attacks last night started when she called out white artists, specifically Iggy, for being silent about current black issues. No doubt her tweets were specifically referencing yesterday's grand jury verdict on the death of Eric Garner to let the white police officer who killed him using an illegal chokehold off the hook. "Black culture is cool but black issues sure aren't, huh?" Banks tweeted. She goes on to attack Iggy by referring to her music as "fucking KKK Iggy shit" and waxes poetic about wanting to throw a jar off piss on Iggy's head.Â
This is not the first time that Banks has called out white artists for appropriating black culture. In a Pitchfork interview last month, she called white femaleÂ rappers "corny" and "regurgitated." Last night's Twitter beef picked up where the interview left off when she mentioned the media's bias towards Iggy over Nicki Minaj. Just how Minaj got roped into her rant is unclear (and a bit random), but her point in bringing her up seems to beÂ that white performers get preferential Â treatment from the media over black artists. She ends her rant with a remark about T.I., whom she attacked earlier last month, daring him to respond. And now, the morning after, she's back on Twitter again, this time attacking a new target: gay men. Banks sure has a lot of time on her hands, huh?
