Queen Erykah Badu, who recently released her excellent But U Caint Use My Phone mixtape, hosted the Soul Train Music Awards on BET and Centric last night in Las Vegas. Thankfully Badu isn’t one to mince her words as she threw some serious shade at Iggy Azalea, which that drew a booming reaction from the audience. During the monologue, Badu — pretending to speak on a phone — turned away André 3000 and Young Thug from the ceremony, saying she’s “banning all rap this year.” However, when Azalea calls Badu, she makes an exception: “No no no, you can come, ’cause what you’re doing is definitely not rap.” Oh shi– Watch it all unfold below.
