Iggy Azalea Strikes Back at Erykah Badu for Soul Train Awards Diss on Twitter

Iggy Azalea has been largely absent from Twitter as of late. However, the rapper decided to speak up in response to criticism from Erykah Badu. Badu, who hosted the Soul Train Awards, did a bit making fun of Azalea in which she played off the title of her recently released But You Caint Use My Phone.

According to XXL, the singer pretended to receive phone calls from various artists, who she told could not attend the awards because there would be "no rapping." When Badu receved the fictitious phone call from Azalea, however, she replied, "No no no, you can come, 'cause what you're doing is definitely not rap."

Although Iggy was extremely present, both in social media and on the charts in 2014, he 2015 output has been relatively scant. However, as the year draws to a close, Azalea felt she was ready to address her fans and the criticism lobbed at her by Badu.

The Australian rapper tweeted, "Hi guys i know its been a while. We are days from 2016, but i came online today and saw its still cool to try and discredit my 2014 accomplishments. LOL, f*cking hell. Seems exhausting. Anyway- Ive been enjoying the holiday season and i hope you all have too."

In her twitter post, Azalea also sought to explain her lack of musical output in 2015, and the future of her career. She mentioned that she has finished her contributions to an upcoming album, and is simply waiting on the features to be recorded. She tweeted, "I dont really know what im doing with my music release; but im finished (except for getting the features recorded. Right now i live in america and am very close to the Def Jam team; but im actually signed out of the UK. Things are complicated. Im ready with my music but i am also trying to restructure some things to work smoother and better for me. So we are all kind of still just figuring out how things should work and id guess thats going to take a few weeks."
