T.I. Defends Iggy Azalea: “Not All White People Out To Steal Our Culture”/ Azealia Banks Weighs In

thatgrapejuice-iggy-ti

While most are tweet-watching to see if the “Anonymous” hacker threats against rap starlet Iggy Azalea will manifest into anything more, her mentor – rap mogul T.I. – comes to her aid again.

Indeed, after calming the bark of legendary rapper Snoop Dogg just weeks ago, now Tip is clapping back at rapper Q-Tip on behalf of Azalea after the ‘Breathe and Stop’ beau lent her a stinging lesson in hip hop history (see that here if you missed it).

In a lengthy Twitter lecture, Tip refutes some of Q-Tip’s claims about Azalea’s intent with hip hop, the fear of white people embezzling from Black culture, and more.  Tuck in below, read his rant, and tell us if you agree:

Weigh In: Should Iggy Azalea Ignore Famed Hackers Threatening To Expose Her?

iggy-azealia-beef-hackers

It seems ‘Black Widow’ beauty Iggy Azalea finds new foes across the web everyday.

As if the constant struggle to defend her credibility was not enough, the Australian rapstress is often on the defense against scathing attacks from those accusing her of “misappropriating” black culture.  The most recent of the aforementioned was launched just days ago courtesy of longtime nemesis Azealia Banks (see the fiery response from Azalea here).

The heated e-altercation has ignited a polarizing debate amongst spectators with most of them seemingly siding with Banks.  The latest backers of Banks, however, come in a surprising form – the ‘AnonMessage’ Twitter group.

Best known for hacking the official KKK Twitter account and bringing to light private information about officer Darren Wilson (Missouri policeman who escaped indictment after killing unarmed African American male Mike Brown), the “e-vigilante” group has demanded Iggy apologize to the Yung Rapunxel by Sunday night (December 21) or else…

azealia-banks-that-grape-juice-2014-190000

Solange Knowles isn’t the only entertainer showing a little love to Azealia Banks this week.

For, after revealing that she believes black women aren’t given enough credit for their contributions to Pop culture and society in general, Nicki Minaj used Twitter to thank Banks for supporting her new album ‘The Pinkprint.’

Quite interestingly, Banks echoed similar sentiments during a headline-grabbing conversation Hot 97’s Ebro Darden, unaware that Minaj had discussed the very same topic with the very same Darden days earlier.

A case of great minds thinking alike? Perhaps.

Now find out what happened when Nicki “met” Banks online, below…

Must See: Azealia Banks Breaks Down In Tears On Hot 97 / Lashes Iggy Azalea, T.I, Tiny & Industry Race Politics

azealia-banks-hot-97-thatgrapejuice

Since blazing onto the scene with ‘212’, Azealia Banks has become as renown for her outspokenness as she has her music.

Indeed, many would argue that her various social media spats have not only overshadowed her success, but dented it too.

However, today arguably brought an interesting turning point.

Having veered away from the interview circuit in the wake of her numerous beefs, the rapper returned to the media trail today when she stopped by Hot 97.

Never one to hold her tongue, the 23-year-old sounded all the way off on Iggy Azalea, T.I., and Tiny. The New York native also extensively detailed her gripe with industry race politics.

After watching this we’re going to need Ms. Banks to talk more than she types. Because in audio-visual form, a lot of what she saying really resonates. Context, tone, elaboration are key differentials which help colour in many of her points and it really paints her in a new, more positive and enlightened light.

See what we mean below.
