Q-Tip Gives Iggy Azalea A Hip-Hop History Lesson On Twitter

Iggy Azalea never seems to understand what Azealia Banks’ problem with her is, and Banks doesn’t seem to be able to get through to her. After their most recent Twitter exchange, Q-Tip has decided to step in with a constructive assist. After referring to Banks as “a very smart, talented and blessed black woman” following her emotional comments about cultural appropriation and the “scrubbing” of black musicians’ art, Q-Tip turned his attention to Iggy Azalea. In a lengthy history lesson in the socio-political origins of hip-hop and how they remain relevant today, the Tribe Called Quest MC broke things down to the Aussie rapper directly. Being sure to clarify “that this is not a chastisement this is not admonishment at ALL this is just one artist reaching to another hoping to spark insight,” Q-Tip’s Twitter session could serve as a crash course in hip-hop culture for just about anyone.
