Iggy Azalea & Azealia Banks Clash Over Recent Interview & Race


(AllHipHop News) Azealia Banks gave a 45 minute interview with Hot 97 that included the “212” rapper discussing her view that award shows and the media unfairly celebrate White performers – like longtime rival Iggy Azalea – over Black artists.

“The Grammys are supposed to be accolades for artistic excellence. Iggy Azalea is not excellent,” said Banks. “I have a problem when you’re trying to say that it’s Hip Hop, and you’re trying to put it up against Black culture.”
