They buried the hatchet! Azealia Banks says she respects Iggy Azalea.

In today’s (August 16) least surprising news, Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks’ collaboration is shaping up to be a disaster. In fact, it probably won’t be released at all. “Iggy Azalea collab is def not happening as Def Jam says they aren’t releasing anymore singles for her,” the “212” rapper revealed on Instagram. That sounds plausible given that the Aussie hitmaker’s label has all but pulled the plug on Digital Distortion. However, I-G-G-Y hopped on Twitter to (kind of) set the record straight.

“Misinformation,” she countered. “I am releasing a single. The song I had in mind for us is not a single, Banks is still very much welcome to collab [with] me.” This is already a mess and they haven’t recorded a single bar. Iggy released two very good singles this era (“Mo Bounce” and “Switch”), but it’s hard to imagine a scenario where she lands at hit without rehabilitating her image. At this point, the rapper should just scrap the album and start again after hiring an effective PR team and calling up a real-life Olivia Pope for some long-overdue damage control.
