Iggy Azalea Calls Azealia Banks a 'Bully and a Bigot' After Banks' Latest Twitter Rant

Earlier, Banks spoke out about white artists appropriating black culture, specifically calling out Azalea. The Australian rapper defended herself, but it seems Solange is throwing her support behind Banks. 

Solange also thanked J. Cole, who called out Iggy Azalea on a track called "Fire Squad" from his new album. Cole rapped, "This year I’ll prolly go to the awards dappered down / Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile."

Azalea's The New Classic is up for the Best Rap Album Grammy. In 2014, Macklemore controversially beat Kendrick Lamar's critically-adored good kid, m.A.A.d city album in the Best Rap Album category. After his win, Macklemore texted Kendrick, "It sucks that I robbed you."

Many are predicting a similar "robbery" courtesy of Azalea at the 2015 Grammys.
