[VIDEO] Erykah Badu Openly Disses Iggy Azalea at the Soul Train Awards

December 1, 2015

Erykah Badu is apparently not a fan of Iggy Azalea.

While serving as host of the 2015 Soul Train Awards on Sunday night, the 44-year-old singer took shots at the embattled Australian rapper, calling Azalea out during her opening monologue. Badu set up the diss after first poking fun at her own reputation.

“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,” said Badu, who has previously dated rappers Andre 3000, The D.O.C., and Jay Electronica. “So they have banned me from all of the hip-hop awards with a sign saying ‘Erykah Badu, leave our rappers alone.'”

The “On & On” singer then pretended to take a phone call from Azalea.

“Who is this? Iggy Azalea? Yeah, hey! No, no, no, no, no, no, no! You can come,” she said. “’Cause what you’re doing is definitely not rap.”

The audience appeared to enjoy the joke, though a few looked visibly shocked.
