Erykah Badu Throws Massive Shade At Iggy Azalea At Soul Train Awards

This past weekend at the 2015 Soul Train Awards, the Queen herself Erykah Badu made it a point to throw massive shade at Iggy Azalea. During her opening monologue, she did a comedic bit about how all rap was banned from the event, because the evening was devoted to soul. She then received fake phone calls from Andre 3000 and Young Thug, during which she playfully banned them and their music from the event. To ice off the bit, Badu received a fake phone call from Azalea to which she slyly responded: “No no no, you can come, ’cause what you’re doing is definitely not rap!”

The crowd devoured the shade with laughs and side eyes, as there wasn’t even the slightest risk of Iggy showing up at the event, especially considering her recent tour cancellations and steep career decline.

Was the shade too mean, or just right? You decide.
