The saga continues like a played out soap opera between Azealia Banks and T.I. In the latest episode of Azealia/Azalea gate, Bossip reports that T.I. stopped by Chicago’s Morning Riot to promote his new album Trouble Man, and once again he commented on the “beef” between his artist Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks. In a non-politically correct move T.I. added his two cents. When asked about the girl drama T.I. responded with a rather interesting response:
“Now you see the thing is about that. Guess what. I didn’t even know nothing about it to just now. I ain’t even see it. Now I know they going through they thang. But the fact that she’s speaking upon me and mine. And I never, I ain’t even see it. That is what I consider and excuse my language, but that’s bitch sh*t. I’m a man. You ain’t got no business addressing me. You got a man, get him to address me and he and I can speak on it. But you and me – naw, keep dealing with that woman. Y’all handle that. Me and you we ain’t got nowhere to go with that. I do what men do.
Everyone needs to just breathe. Remember: “No comment” is a sufficient answer. Use it; it is your friend. Not one to stand by idly while being talked about, Banks took to Twitter and replied to T.I. directly. And she did not bite her tongue, calling T.I. both a clown and a snitch.
Lawdhavemercy. The confrontation started a couple of months ago when Banks addressed her dissatisfaction with Iggy Azalea landing the cover of XXL‘s Freshman Class list. After Azealia’s Twitter rant, Iggy and T.I. did a radio interview with Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 where T.I. defended his artist and made some disparaging remarks about Banks. In proving she was no punk, the Harlem rapper responded on Twitter and the back and forth has been non-stop ever since.
We get it. Hip-hop is competitive. But unless T.I., Iggy or Azealia are going to lay their frustrations on wax and let the fans decide, no more interviews or Tweet wars. Please! Internet thuggin’ is so 2008.
