Erykah Badu Got Iggy Azalea To Come Out Of Social Media Retirement

at 3:35 pm | By

This week, Iggy Azalea had the Internet buzzing, after Erykah Badu sent her a pretty wild diss at the 2015 Soul Train Awards. The rapper has received a lot of backlash over the past couple of years, as the hip hop community isn’t too happy about her winning rap awards, despite her single “Fancy” going platinum. Erykah definitely set the bar for those who were looking in their books for more disses at the Australian rapper. She has even come back to social media since then, despite retiring.

Just earlier this year, Iggy was fed up with all of the disses and backlash towards her, and didn’t seem to want to handle it anymore. She gave over her social media accounts to her management team, and she has been staying off for the time being. Erykah’s diss, and her response, has been the first time in awhile for her to come out of retirement.

During her opening monologue at the Soul Train Awards, Erykah fake called Iggy and let her know that she could come to the awards show, as it was a no-rappers awards show. She told the crowd, “you can come, because what you doing definitely isn’t rap.”
