Just when it looked like their Twitter war was escalating, Iggy Azalea and Erykah Badu decided to end their feud on Monday, December 7. Badu sort of apologized to Azalea for dissing her at last month’s Soul Train Awards, and the rapper later invited Badu’s kids to her show.
The feud started when Badu hosted the awards show and banned all the rappers from the event except for Azalea because “what you’re doin’ is definitely not rap.” From then on, they exchanged heat via social media.
Out of the blue, Badu posted a video on Twitter to make peace. “You know what, I wanna do this for my daughters, I wanna apologize to Iggy Azalea because she’s one of their favorite artists, and they listen to her all the time,” she said. “It’s for them …But when I really think about it, if y’all love her so much, why don’t you be with her then?? Go on, be with her y’all.” Badu is mom of 18-year-old son Steven, 11-year-old daughter Puma and 8-year-old daughter Mars.
The “Fancy” rapper responded via Twitter, “Hey Erykah. Tell the kids I’m a big fan of mom, even if we don’t agree where to file my music in their iTunes folder. I???m gonna announce a new tour soon. If they do great in class there is officially an open invitation extended to them and friends with good report cards to come and enjoy a show anytime. I am 100 percent a woman of my word, and I appreciate the apology.”
