Master phone user Erykah Badu got the Soul Train Awards to a brilliantly shady start. In her opening monologue, Badu, who just released a track with Andre 3000 and is working on a phone-centric mixtape, pretended to call up celebrities to give them invitations to the show. When she called Iggy Azalea, well, things got a little cutting: “Uh yes? Who is this? Iggy Azalea?” Erykah began, “Yeah, hey. Oh no no no no, you can’t come, ’cause what you doin’ is definitely not rap.”
It’s probably not in Iggy’s best interest to strike back at this. But if she tries, expect her to take some time to formulate a response.
