Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks

The beef between Azalea and Azealia has been going on so long it's hard to tell where it began, but their most heated flare-up occurred in early December, when Banks sent out a series of tweets ripping into Azalea for not commenting on the Ferguson protests: "its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen… Black Culture is cool but black issues sure aren't, huh?" Iggy eventually responded, "Theres more to sparking a change than trolling on social media. World issues shouldn't be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles." Nevertheless, a week later, Banks gave a tearful interview to New York radio station Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, where she spoke on such topics as the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases before getting some serious Iggy Azalea digs in. "Don't put her in hip-hop. Just because she's not singing does not mean it's rap music," she said, adding, "At the very fucking least, y'all owe me the right to my identity. That's all we're holding on to in hip-hop and rap." Iggy followed up by slamming Banks on Twitter, writing, "You created your own unfortunate situation by being a bigot and don't have the mental capacity to realize yet," and, "Now! rant, Make it racial! Make it political! Make it whatever, but I guarantee it won't make you likable & thats why ur crying on the radio." Stars like Q-Tip, Solange and Will.i.am have weighed in and taken sides while both Banks and Azalea continue to comment on Twitter. This one may very well make it into our 2015 feuds list.
