Tyler the Creator made some surprising comments about fellow rapper Iggy Azalea on BET’s 106 and Park yesterday.
When the topic of the "Fancy" songstress came up, Tyler certainly wasn’t shy about telling the crowd that Iggy "stinks" and apparently lacks a "real booty:"
Iggy, of course, is enjoying success these days with her cameo on Ariana Grande’s "Problem," and is experiencing worldwide fame for the first time as a result of the song.
Tyler – who’s been known to eat live cockroaches and pretend to commit suicide in his videos – has understandably not enjoyed the same kind of mainstream success, but he’s part of the legitimate hip hop world that Australian-born Iggy is still trying to break into, so his comments likely cut to the bone.
Iggy responded to Tyler’s comments in a tweet posted late last night:
"Tyler the Creator is beyond immature. I’ve always believed you had more to offer the world, shame to see you be so rude."
We agree with Iggy that Tyler’s comments were rude, but if she was genuinely surprised by his inappropriateness, she’s clearly never spent much time listening to his music.
Some have speculated that Tyler and Iggy may have had a brief romantic relationship or that they’re trying to start a rap feud for publicity, but those familiar with his career know the Odd Future rapper has a habit of attacking other celebs for no apparent reason.
For example, in one of his first singles, Tyler unleashed a profanity-laced tirade against Paramore singer Hailey Williams, whom he’s apparently never even met.
So, Iggy, we think it would be a waste of time for you to try and get on Tyler’s good side.
Just enjoy your success and add "famous haters" to your list of problems:
