The ongoing war of words coming from Azealia Banks directed at Iggy Azalea just reached a new level. Banks sat down for a 45-minute-plus chat with Hot 97's "Ebro in the Morning," and the roundtable discussion covered a wide range of topics -- including her public beef with similarly named rapper Iggy Azalea, according to Billboard.
One of the the most poignant moments came when Banks opened up about the appropriation of black culture and how white artists, in her opinion, get more attention for work that black artists are doing better, reports Billboard.
"I feel like, in this country, whenever it comes to our things, like black issues or black politics or black music or whatever, there's always this undercurrent of kinda like a 'F--k you,'" Banks said. "There's always a 'F--k y'all n---as. Y'all don't really own shit. Y'all don't have shit.' That Macklemore album wasn't better than the Drake record. That Iggy Azalea shit isn't better than any f---ing black girl that's rapping today."
Banks even teared up a few times while talking about the history of black people in America -- and the very real issues at play today. "Until y'all mother----ers ready to talk about what you owe me...at the very f---ing least you owe me my identity and to not exploit that shit," she said through tears. Then she moved on to bring up the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of white police officers.
