Yesterday, Q-Tip was dragged into an argument between Azealia Banks and Action Bronson, questioning Bronson on his word choice on a few occasions. Today, the former Tribe Called Quest member targeted Iggy Azalea, who made some remarks about Banks on Twitter yesterday. In essence, Tip delivered a history lesson on hip-hop's place within the black community as a means of celebration, escape and self-love, situating it alongside post-Vietnam war strife and the heroin epidemic. His words are below, and are very much worth reading.
