Read exactly what Iggy Azalea thinks of Azealia Banks.
Azealia Banks went on an epic radio rant this week that saw her brought to tears as she dissed (and not for the first time) Iggy Azalea, T.I and his wife, Tiny.
The 'Broke With Expensive Taste' rapper laid out her feelings about white rappers in the industry, using this year's Grammy nominees and winners to make her point.
"The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence… Iggy Azalea's not excellent" she said on Hot 97.
"When they give these Grammys out, all it says to white kids is, 'You're great. You're amazing. You can do whatever you put your mind to.' And it says to black kids, 'You don’t have sh*t. You don't own sh*t, not even the sh*t you created yourself.' And it makes me upset."
Iggy has taken to Twitter to respond to the attack, addressing Banks directly to tell her she has a "p*ss poor attitude."
Your inability to be responsible for your own mistakes, bullying others, the inability to be humble or have self control. It's YOU!— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) December 19, 2014
you created your own unfortunate situation by being a bigot and don't have the mental capacity to realize yet. Probably never will.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) December 19, 2014

You're poisonous and I feel genuinely sorry for you because it's obvious at this point you are a MISERABLE, angry human being. Regards!— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) December 19, 2014
Meanwhile, Banks has obviously been made aware of Iggy's tweets.
Itchy Areola, you are so stupid and selfish to make any of this about yourself in particular,— CATTY NOIR (@AZEALIABANKS) December 19, 2014
My tears had absolutely nothing to with you and everything to do with society and the media in general.— CATTY NOIR (@AZEALIABANKS) December 19, 2014
