Erykah Badu Refuses To Call Iggy Azalea A Rapper

Erykah jokes about herself, too.

Iggy Azalea rhymes on tracks all the time, but Erykah Badu doesn't seem to think that makes her a rapper.

While hosting The Soul Train Awards on Sunday, Nov. 29, Badu made Iggy her punchline after saying the evening wouldn't focus on hip-hop. You see, that's when Erykah got a phone call and guess who was on the line.

"Iggy Azalea," she said. "Yeah, hey...Oh, no...you can come 'cause what you doin’ is definitely not rap."

Someone defended Iggy on Twitter after this and yes, Erykah saw it and yes, she responded.

But Badu wasn't just clowning Iggy; she even took some jabs at herself.

"As you know, I am the queen of neo soul and people say I have this common effect on rappers," she said. "That I make them change gods and wear crochet hats, shoulder pads. So they have banned me from all of the hip-hop awards with a sign saying 'Erykah Badu, leave our rappers alone.'"

Over the weekend, Erykah also released But You Caint Use My Phone, a mixtape that included a guest spot from André 3000. The project was on DatPiff, but it has since been taken down.
