Iggy Azalea had choice words for Q-Tip on Twitter earlier today. Iggy, who’s currently embroiled in a war of words with Azealia Banks, has received threats from hacker groupAnonymous, and who recently flipped off booing fans in New York, took to Twitter to respond to Q-Tip’s hip-hop history lesson that he gave her over the weekend.

Q-Tip was providing context, not chastisement, but as we’ve seen before with Iggy and her Twitter, her retorts remain self-coddling and off target.

UPDATE: Azealia Banks has now chimed in on the situation and Iggy’s response to Q-Tip’s hip-hop lesson. Her full list of tweets can be seen below.
