Erykah Badu went hard with the jokes during her opening monologue at the 2015 Soul Train Awards, and she wasn’t afraid to take some shots. The beloved musical weirdo had a savage burn for controversial artist-y person Iggy Azalea, throwing her (limited) hip hop cred into question.
Erykah held a iPhone up to her ear during the opening bit, pretending to speak to a variety of celebrities and offering invites to the show. Iggy made the cut—but for all the wrong reasons. “Iggy Azalea!” she said. “You can come because what you’re doing is definitely not rap. I’ma send an Uber for you.”
