‘What you’re doing is not rap': Host Erykah Badu takes aim at Iggy Azalea at the BET Soul Train Awards.

The singer-songwriter arrived via hover board and immediately launched into a monologue that poked fun at the fact that rap music has to be excluded from the awards show, which honors R&B music.In her opening monologue, having arrived on stage at Las Vegas’ Orleans Arena via hoverboard, Badu made a quick quip about her reputation as a rhyme killer. “As you know, I am the queen of neo soul and people say I have this common effect on rappers: that I make them change gods and wear crochet hats, shoulder pads,” Badu, 44, said. “So they have banned me from all of the hip-hop awards with a sign saying ‘Erykah Badu, leave our rappers alone.’” Badu then took her joke further — this time at Iggy Azalea’s expense.Later on, Erykah retweeted a post which read: ‘Life would be wonderful if women celebrated each other instead of emulating garbage like @fatbellybella You have my support @IGGYAZALEA.’ “What if somebody breaks in on us?” I said, “Don’t worry, I got something to throw at his head.” And he said, “What you gonna do, throw some money at him?”‘

Erykah, who is working on a phone-centric mixtape and has just released a track with André 3000, was seen chatting to celebrities and inviting them to the awards. Yeah, hey… no, no, no, you can’t come, because what you doing is definitely not rap!” Iggy has yet to respond to the barb, with her last Twitter post coming on 1 November. Despite putting a stop to their work, T.I. continued to defend the “Black Widow” rapper. “I ain’t gonna make no excuses,” he told the hosts of New York’s Hot 97 Ebro in the Morning in September of the Aussie rapper. “In her defense, she had a lot thrown at her at one time.

Having nicknamed the singer ‘Igloo Australia’, Azealia said she was particularly upset by Iggy’s nomination for Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards. “The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence… Iggy Azalea’s not excellent,” Azealia told New York radio station Hot 97 back in 2014. “When they give these Grammys out, all it says to white kids is, ‘You’re great. Any human being anywhere [is gonna] have a hard time adjusting.” He continued, “It’s very difficult to be the new kid and to be the butt of the jokes…It came at a time when culturally in this nation—when she’s not from here—we were actually looking for a source to place that pent-up aggression. You don’t own s**t, not even the s**t you created yourself.’ And it makes me upset.” Iggy then responded to Azealia’s comments on her own Twitter page, writing: “You created your own unfortunate situation by being a bigot and don’t have the mental capacity to realise yet.
