Erykah Badu threw some major shade at Iggy Azalea while on stage hosting the 2015 Soul Train Awards, which aired this past Sunday. In the opening monologue, Badu pretended to call people up inviting them to the show. “Uh yes? Who is this? Iggy Azalea?” she said. “Yeah, hey. Oh no no no no, you can come, ’cause what you doin’ is definitely not rap.” The audience immediately exploded in half laughter and half “ohhhhh [snap] afterwards.
It’s no secret that many entertainers and listeners alike feel like Iggy Azalea doesn’t accurately represent hip hop. And there are a slew of reasons for that, sub par rhyming ability aside.
Do you think Erykah was wrong for doing Iggy this way?
