Iggy Azalea & Azealia Banks End Feud, Collaboration In The Works
Iggy Azalea is looking to tie up all loose ends as she struggles to release her long-delayed second album, ‘Digital Distortion’. Today, the Def Jam recording artist announced an unexpected collaboration on the way that marks the end of six-year-long feud with fellow female recording artist, Azealia Banks.
A feud stemming from a 2011 Twitter rant brought on by Azealia Banks trolling Iggy over “possibly” Culture appropriation. For years, both acts went back and forth on social media, now with both artist’s career in limbo, a truce has been struck that can lead to both receiving a second lease on their career.
Azalea took to social media to announce another surprise on her upcoming album in a special public service announcement. Taking to Snapchat, Iggy reveals:
“Public Service Announcement, Azealia is going to be on DD. We are collaborating. Burn your wigs now or preserve them in your freezer for release day.”
Further elaborating the collaboration on Twitter. Iggy says:
“I don’t expect you guys to understand why I would collaborate with someone who has publicly said they hope I die. This has been something extremely negative for so long, if there is a way to make it positive and also be creative together, I’m here for it.”
Azealia Banks responds to Azalea public statement with a clarifying open invitation to begin the collaboration process. The 27-year-old Banks issues an Instagram post that says the following:
Iggy’s sophomore album is currently up in the air as her proposed release date came and went back in June 23rd. A tour, in-support of the album, is also under development. There is no official word on when ‘Digital Distortion’ will hit streaming but it is known that Iggy’s upcoming Def Jam release will feature guest appearances from Anitta, French Montana, and Lil Uzi Vert.
