Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks finally end their six-year feud.
You may have forgotten that these two artists locked into a feud with one another many years ago, and now it looks like it is finally over. The good people at Complex caught wind of a Snapchat post from Iggy Azalea which looks like she’s ready to let bygones be bygones. In the Snapchat post, Iggy goes on to say:
“I just want to say FYI, re: A. Banks. Call me crazy but girl, I don’t hate you. I don’t know you to hate you,” she wrote. “I believe you may want to meet me in person so you can steal a lock of my hair and cast a spell hoping I die (lol) I don’t agree with many of your opinions but honestly, at times I empathize with you as a creative Gemini woman. I wish you had spoken to me before deciding I was out to get you when we first came on the scene, but that’s also typical Gemini reaction shit (I get it). As a 27-year-old adult woman just know: I wish you well from one human to another and joke collaboration or not as adults we should move past trivial beef with strangers.”
Azealia Banks also wants to move passed the issue, and work things out. In an interview with XXL, Banks says,
“I think a true reconciliation can happen once there is some acknowledgment of what hip-hop has been trying to tell her. I still don’t think she quite understands the effect her racial privilege and the socio-economic leverage that comes with it has on a marginalized group of women’s culture. Race aside, this is also a women’s issue. I hope that there will be a chance for us to have an open discussion about this, as I feel America and the world could really benefit from some candid discourse between two public figures about the world’s biggest sickness: racism. I wish for women of the future to be able to refer to this moment in women’s culture as an example of what can happen when people take time to understand.”
Banks also mentioned Iggy more recently in an Instagram post along with a list of other goals:
Time will tell if these two ladies are truly ready to walk forward and make amends.
