The Iggy Azalea x Kendrick Lamar x Azealia Banks beef continues.
First Kendrick Lamar defended Iggy Azalea and now the 'Fancy' singer is returning the favour. Last week Kendrick came under fire for defending fellow rapper Iggy Azalea in an interview with Billboard.
The 'i' rapper told hip-hop fans to "let her do her thing," adding to Iggy; "God wants you here." It's a good thing K. Dot barely uses Twitter, because an avalanche of abuse from Iggy's haters has come his way ever since.
But never one to back down from airing her opinions on the social network, Iggy has now responded.
Someone I know makes a positive judgement about me and as a result a million people who know neither of us are outraged. Irony Is real.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) January 10, 2015
God is the only being I've never personally met whose opinion I'd consider strongly and he shows me daily he approves by blessing me.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) January 10, 2015
There's no need for you do try to do his job for him!— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) January 10, 2015

Kendrick was having a bad week for more reasons than one. In the same interview, he made comments on the trouble Ferguson was facing at the end of last year that came under heat, most noticeably from Azealia Banks (who's been beefing Iggy too - are you keeping up?)
The outspoken '212' rapper quoted Kendrick's most notable comment from the interview, which read, "When we don't respect ourselves how can we expect them to respect us" and called it "The dumbest s**t [she's] ever heard a black man say."
