The War Between Iggy Azalea And Azealia Banks Heats Up

There will be blood.

Posted on

For those unaware, a short history of the two's beef goes like this:

As far back as September of 2012, Azealia Banks went on one of her now notorious Twitter rants, and Iggy was just one of a number of artists caught in the blast. "And fuck Iggy Azalea," she tweeted. "I had a song called 'Pussy' before she ever did. Here's a link to my song. It's better." As far as Banks disses on Twitter go, it was fairly mild.

It wasn't until Iggy Azalea was selected as part of XXL's Freshman Class 2012 that things really began to heat up.

From there the shots fired from both parties are too numerous to mention and too exhausting to track down, but tensions between the two parties remain strong.

This latest round comes courtesy of an Azealia Banks interview with Hot 97 wherein she breaks down her specific issues with Iggy. Watch:

Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg lends a sympathetic ear. Former Hot 97 station director-turned-talent Ebro Darden less so.

Whose side are you on? Or, like us, does the whole thing just make you sad?
