After rapper Azealia Banks gave an explosive interview to Hot 97 (watch), blasting T.I, Iggy Azalea and the music industry’s attitude towards black artists, the legend that is Q-Tip decided to give Iggy a Hip Hop history lesson (read), after she responded to Azealia Banks (read).
Now instead of Iggy responding to Q-Tip directly, T.I has put on his cape and tights and jumped to his protegé’s defence.
The pint-sized rapper tweeted:
Interestingly enough T.I has not responded to Azealia like he has done in the past (read), but I suspect her brutally honest and emotional interview with HOT 97 has forced him to look at her differently. He can no longer dismiss her as being this reckless pest of a black woman on Twitter, filled with bitterness and hate. If T.I does decide to address her he will have to choose his words carefully from now on.
Azealia BURIED him in that interview and has a lot more supporters now, including fellow artists who will probably never admit that publicly.
However in response to T.I’s defence of Iggy, Azealia tweeted:
Over to you T.I.
