Since then, Iggy hasn’t really commented on the beef too much, although T.I. did have some words for Azealia (and Azealia had some words for T.I. in return). Now though, Iggy Azalea talks about the feud in a recent interview with Brooklyn Martino.
Iggy explains (via HipHopDX) that it didn’t start with the XXL Freshman list, it started before that, “It actually started at CMJ Music Festival back in September when she went on Twitter and said, ‘I’m next level, I had a song about being a Barbie before Nicki Minaj had a song about being a Barbie. Here’s the link to my song. And fuck Iggy Azalea, I had a song called ‘Pussy’ before she ever did. Here’s a link to my song. It’s better.”
“And then I wrote on Twitter, the best thing you can be is humble, because it’s not about who did it first; it’s about who did it better And then she wrote back to me and said, ‘Beef!’ I was like, not really girl. Not really. It’s not that deep. Sot hen after that, she wrote on Twitter, ‘Fuck white girls. They are privileged and shouldn’t be allowed to rap, because rap is black culture’ and all this other crap. Then, it was like, what does ignorant art even mean anyway? Music is not art. Music is culture. That doesn’t even make any sense. Then, it was quiet until I got on the cover of XXL and it became me being racist.”
Iggy explains it’s not about her being ‘racist,’ it started back in September, and she has since tried to ignore it.
