Q-Tip Schools Iggy Azalea On Hip-Hop History

tip

Iggy Azalea has come under renewed scrutiny after Azealia Banks conducted an emotional interview with Ebro and Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97 this past week. The Harlem rapper teared up a couple times when talking about the widespread racism that insinuates itself into the Grammys and pop culture as a whole. She referred to the phenomenon of whites being awarded for doing black art as cultural “smudging,” and while it’s one of the best interviews of 2014, it’s also sparked newcomers to appreciate Banks on a human level, beyond her outspoken nature that the media loves to focus on and vilify.

One of the people who noticed was Q-Tip. At first, his approval of Banks and her message was kept short:

But after Banks and Action Bronson got into an unfortunate tiff (which Tip also commented on), the Tribe member addressed Iggy Azalea directly by regaling her with a hip-hop history lesson. Below are all of his tweets towards Iggy. Keep in mind that even after the long-winded lesson, Iggy responded with total silence.
