On the same day Lupe Fiasco was asked about Iggy Azalea by a fan, Q-Tip took to Twitter on Saturday (Dec. 20) to also share his opinion of the female rapper who has faced her share of criticism about cultural misappropriation this year.

He went on a lengthy Twitter spree, where he opened up about the origins of hip hop and what he thinks of the "Fancy" rapper in the context of the genre. The flurry of Tweets started with Q-Tip addressing "Bloggers! Journalists! People!" and then turned to him tweeting directly at Iggy, who has yet to respond to his Tweets.

After a number of tweets giving a history lesson on the genre, he focused more specifically on Iggy.
