Playing Erykah Badu Openly Disses Iggy Azalea at the Soul Train Awards

Erykah Badu is apparently not a fan of Iggy Azalea.

While serving as host of the 2015 Soul Train Awards on Sunday night, the 44-year-old singer took shots at the embattled Australian rapper, calling Azalea out during her opening monologue. Badu set up the diss after first poking fun at her own reputation.

"As you know, I am the queen of neo soul and people say I have this common effect on rappers: that I make them change gods and wear crochet hats, shoulder pads," said Badu, who has previously dated rappers Andre 3000, The D.O.C., and Jay Electronica. "So they have banned me from all of the hip-hop awards with a sign saying 'Erykah Badu, leave our rappers alone.'"

The "On & On" singer then pretended to take a phone call from Azalea.

"Who is this? Iggy Azalea? Yeah, hey! No, no, no, no, no, no, no! You can come,” she said. “'Cause what you’re doing is definitely not rap.”

The audience appeared to enjoy the joke, though a few looked visibly shocked.

The 25-year-old "Fancy" rapper has yet to respond, although Badu did reply to a Twitter user who defended Azalea. "Life would be wonderful if women celebrated each other instead of emulating garbage like @fatbellybella," the tweet reads. "You have my support @IGGYAZALEA."

"Kill joy," Badu shot back.

The normally outspoken Azalea has laid relatively low since responding to rapper T.I.'s headline-making interview in September, when he admitted that he no longer speaks to his onetime protege after a string of negative publicity.

"Some stuff they brought upon themselves," T.I. told radio station Hot 97.

This year has definitely been a tough one for Azalea, who canceled her "Great Escape" tour in May, and has had beefs with everyone from rapper Q-Tip, Papa John's Pizza, and Steve Madden.

Still, she appears to be taking it all in stride. The "Black Widow" rapper said she was "flattered" by all her haters after she was flooded with negative messages thanks to her surprise appearance during Demi Lovato's MTV Video Music Awards performance in August.

"Who cares it shows I'm very relevant in their lives still," she tweeted. "I'm flattered. hahaha."
