Original Story: Saturday (Dec. 20), Q-Tip tweeted an lengthy hip-hop history lesson at Iggy Azalea about the historical and political powers within hip-hop music. Over the course of nearly 40 tweets, Tip states that "this is not a chastisement this is not admonishment at ALL this is just one artist reaching to another hoping to spark insight into the field you r in."
Lupe Also chimed in, defending Iggy, stating she has a place in hip-hop.
There was no response from Iggy—T.I. and Will.i.am also did chime in later on defending the Aussie Rapper—but you knew she was going to say something eventually. Well, that day is upon us. The Grammy nominated MC took to Twitter to respond to recent tweets earlier, read them below.
This past week has been rough for Iggy Azalea. It began on Friday when Azealia Banks went on to Hot 97 and explain why she believes that the Nicki Minaj is undervalued in the hip-hop community. and pitting Nicki against Iggy is “cultural smudging.” Iggy responded to Bans, calling her a bigot. Quite strangely, hacker group Anonymous didn’t take too kindly to the tweets the “Fancy” rapper posted in response to Azealia Banks’ Hot97 interview. The group has threatened the Aussie rapper with repercussions if she does not comply with their demands to give Banks a full apology also saying she is, “guilty of misappropriating black culture, insulting peaceful protesters, and making light of Eric Garner’s death.”
