Azealia Banks Upset At XXL Mag For Putting Iggy Azalea In Their Freshman Class : “Iggy Azalea on the XXL freshman list is all wrong.”

28 Feb

That’s what burgeoning female rapper Azealia Banks tweeted today after finding out Australian female MC Iggy Azalea (who happens to be white and co-signed by Atlanta rapper T.I.) would be featured on the cover of the hip hop magazine along with other up and coming rappers.

In a sense of disbelief Banks further went on a Twitter rant asking the following question:

“How can you endorse a white woman who called herself a “runaway slave master ” ?

The cover above is what has Azealia Banks all worked up and going as far as to strike up a Twitter fight with entertainment blogger Necole Bitchie. The Freshman Class is an annual list of rappers XXL magazine publishes to showcase new and deserving artist creating a buzz in the hip hop game.

Azealia need not worry too much though. The female MC is already in the radar of Kanye West and has fashion ties to Chanel director Karl Lagerfield. On the flip side Iggy Azalea is currently  in the studio putting the finishes touches on her album under the tutelage of T.I. The two were spotted over the weekend in Orlando on promo run.

I swear these new female’s need to come out and upflift each other. Put out a brand new version of ‘Ladie’s Night’ and kill it. In a perfect world this would be reality but unfortunately it’s not that simple…

Just in case your unfamiliar with each of the girls right now check video’s from both girls:

Iggy Azalea – The Last Song

Azealia Branks – ‘212’


Who you rolling with?
