Iggy Azalea Goes Extra Mile To Reveal Azealia Banks Beef Faded To DIGITAL DISTORTION
Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is making space for her one-time rival. The hip-hop diva has announced Azealia Banks has secured a spot on her upcoming Digital Distortion album.
Iggy went to social media to break the news to fans about working on new music with Azealia.
In mid-June, Banks surprised fans after revealing she had made nice with Iggy following a multi-year dispute.
Last year, Iggy Azalea promised her long-delayed Digital Distortion would not revolve around their past feuds.
"It's the one song I did that's lovey because [fiancé] Nick [Young] was like, 'You don't have any love songs. I don't exist,'" she says. "I usually do break-up 'I hate you songs,' but I'm getting married so I can't write those anymore." After more than a year of making headlines for online tiffs with Talib Kweli and Azealia Banks, Azalea titled her album with specific care: "This album isn't about Twitter battles. It's about the way other people can distort your character and having the power through technology to do that." (Entertainment Weekly)
In a past ELLE Canada feature, Iggy name-dropped Banks and dished on their 2015 issues.
"If I could, I would Men in Black memory-erase 2015, I totally would-that would be amazing! Oh, God, there are so many things. I think the Azealia Banks thing is what really started it all. 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. So when I dismissed her, people started to think that I dismissed the whole movement, but I wasn't trying to dismiss Black Lives Matter-I was trying to dismiss her because it's our personal sh*t. I don't think the subject matter of her tweet was invalid; I just think it was emotionally charged and driven by something else, and the whole thing got so misconstrued. I just wish I had acknowledged the issue head-on because it made people think I don't care about what's going on socially and what's happening in America, and I do care. 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." (ELLE)
