LET’S GET READY TO RUUUUUUUUUUMBLE!
XXL Magazine’s Freshman Class of 2012 list hasn’t even been out more than a few hours and already there is some beef brewing over who was chosen for it. Although, Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea are both relative newcomers to the game, don’t expect either of them to have each other’s backs.
Azealia hopped on Twitter to put Iggy on blast for not deserving to be on the cover of XXL and the throw shots that the white girl rapper might even be a racist. She tweeted:
“Iggy Azalea on the XXL freshman list is all wrong. How can you endorse a a white woman who called herself a “Runaway slave master”? Whatever. Sorry guys. But I’m pro black girl. I’m not anti white girl, but I’m also not here for any1 outside of my culture trying to trivialize very serious aspects of it. In any capacity. *kanye shrug* If u hate my music now because of how I feel about this then I guess it’s my loss. I’ll take that loss.”
Azealia was referencing Iggy’s “D.R.U.G.S” track where she starts off the verse “When the relay starts, I’m A Runaway Slave… Master,” which is a bit awkward (depending on how you decipher the lyrics). However, Azealia Banks’ rant about Iggy comes off as bitter, especially for a newbie in the game [She's already taken jabs at both Nicki Minaj and Kreayshawn in the past, as well].
Don’t bother including my @ name in any of ur salty thoughts either cause… I’m #blockinthata$$ today!!!!
First female freshman. Ever. Period. Thanks world! I used to stick XXL on my bedroom door, now I’m on the cover. Life is great.
What do you think of the hip hop girl beef?
