While hosting the Soul Train Awards in the US, which celebrates the best in Black music and entertainment particularly soul and R&B, Badu made Azalea the subject of her opening monologue joke.
“Uh yes? Who is this? Iggy Azalea? Yeah, hey,” Badu said pretending to speak on a flip-phone. “Oh, no, no, no, no, you can come. ‘Cause what you doin’ is definitely not rap.”
As the below video shows, half the audience erupted in laughter while the other half made a “did she just do that” face.
Badu released her mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone last week, hence the use of a phone during the Iggy skit. The mixtape features Andre 3000 and is her first release since 2010’s New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh.
Let’s see if or how Iggy responds to this one given she hasn’t had the best comebacks in the past.
