T.I. Defends Iggy Azalea, Azealia Banks Fires Back

0

T.I. has jumped to protege Iggy Azalea’s defence again amid an ongoing war of words between the Australian star and outspoken Brit Azealia Banks.

Banks sparked a war of words with Iggy earlier this year and she has continued with angry rants on social media, criticising the Fancy hitmaker for being too white for hip-hop.

Azalea has attempted to ignore Banks’ attacks, but earlier this month, she responded to her rap rival over claims she should be more outspoken about race riots and clashes in Ferguson, Missouri and New York, following the deaths of unarmed African-Americans at the hands of white police officers.

As Banks’ Twitter rants continue, T.I. has stepped into the war of words, posting, “white people who were inspired by our culture allowed ME TO SEE, that not all white people out to steal our culture…”

He added a note directed at Azalea, tweeting, “I know u don’t deserve all da (the) negative s**t that comes your way. But like I’ve told u before, it just kinda comes wit da territory…”

Banks has since fired back, insisting T.I. has become “indoctrinated and conditioned”, adding, “I don’t think I should tease him about it anymore… He actually has no clue…”

It’s not the first time T.I. has attempted to end a Twitter feud between his protege and a hip-hop star – he brokered peace between Azalea and Snoop Dogg earlier this year when the veteran rapper poked fun at Iggy’s non-African-American credentials and then fired off threats to her when she responded.

Meanwhile, another white rapper, Kreayshawn, has also taken aim at Iggy Azalea, accusing her of ignoring racism in her native Australia.

In a Twitter exchange posted on Monday, she writes, “IF IGGY FEELS SHE SHOULDNT HAVE A ‘SAY’ IN AMERICAS RACSIM (sic) SHE SHOULD AT LEAST TALK ABOUT THE OBSCENE AMOUNT OF RACISM IN AUSTRALIA… I MEAN EVEN AS AN AMERICAN I AM AWARE OF AUSTRALIA’S RACE PROBLEMS AND I CANT EVEN SPELL THE DAMN COUNTRIES NAME!”
