Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea Still Don’t Like Each Other

They want you to know the feeling is mutual.

Just last week (February 23), Azealia Banks shared that she is rather bored with the music industry, and would rather pick a fight.

Lucky for her, she can always count on her longtime partner in pettiness, Iggy Azalea.

The latest update comes from the publishing of the Aussie rapper’s latest interview with ELLE Canada, where Azalea name-dropped Banks in a less-than-favorable vein. The two got into it in the past regarding a series of tweets where Banks called out Azalea in an emotionally charged discussion regarding race, saying, “Black Culture is cool, but Black issues aren’t, huh?”

"I think the Azealia Banks thing is what really started it all,” Azalea said during the interview. “We don’t like each other on a personal level, and that has gone on for many years — before the Black Lives Matter incident happened.”

"Even though I still hate Azealia Banks, I wish I had said it in a way that didn’t make people think I was oblivious to the movement," she continued. 

Once Banks was made aware of the comments, she didn’t hesitate going in on Twitter, beginning a rant with a tweet reading, “Matter of fact… Let me just kill this b***h.”

Hours later, the tweets seem to randomly end after Banks promised to take her pettiness to a new level, with both artists redirecting their attention back to themselves, and their latest ventures in music.
