Azealia Banks blasts Iggy Azalea for staying silent on black issues

One person who doesn’t think that Iggy Azalea is fancy is her longtime rap nemesis Azealia Banks. In fact, Miss Banks has some very harsh words for the Australian star.

Banks has made her disdain for Azalea public on more than one occasion and when a New York grand jury made the decision not to indict an NYPD officer involved in the reported choke-hold death of Eric Garner yesterday, Banks was quick to attack Azalea for her lack of comments on the situation.

Taking to Twitter, Banks blasted Azalea for not caring about “black issues.” In a lengthy rant, the rapper went on to call out her nemesis.

She then added this rather vicious comment, “Don’t just be down to ride Black Dick…If you with us you WITH US.”
Banks continued to rip into the Australian rapper some more, saying that the world needs to stop comparing her to Nicki Minaj and that by doing so it is belittles black culture.

Banks added, “Nicki is a hard-working rap-BEAST. stop trying to degrade and BELITTLE Our culture with this f***ing kkk iggy shit.”

The point that Banks is trying to get across with her profanity-filled rant is that she feels Azalea should be publicly outraged over the decision that the grand jury made on Wednesday, because she feels that Azalea owes her success to the black community.

Azalea did decide to eventually respond to Banks’ comments, but in a very relaxed way, saying that “world issues shouldnt be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles.”

Tell us what you think: Did Azealia Banks have a point or was she just looking for a fight?
