Erykah Badu Slams Iggy Azalea At The Soul Train Awards


Tell us how you really feel.

Erykah Badu hosted The Soul Train Awards Sunday night (Nov. 29) and took digs at rappers she believes she has an affect on. One “rapper” included in Badu’s crosshairs? Iggy Azalea.

“As you know, I am the queen of neo soul and people say I have this common effect on rappers: that I make them change gods and wear crochet hats, shoulder pads,” Badu said in her monologue. “So they have banned me from all of the hip-hop awards with a sign saying ‘Erykah Badu, leave our rappers alone.'”

Seemingly inline with her recent But You Caint Use My Phone mixtape, Badu pretended to take phone calls where she turns Andre 3000 and Young Thug down then rips into the Australian songstress.

“Iggy Azalea?,” she said. “Oh, you can definitely come because what you’re doing is definitely not rap.”
