Iggy Azalea doesn’t like taking the high road.

No, the Australian rapper won’t let anything go and will respond to critics at the drop of a dime. So it comes as no surprise to her fans that she has responded to rapper Eve’s comments about her ‘blaccent’ and authenticity.

It all began during a promo interview for Eve and Jill Scott’s Lifetime movie With This Ring at Shade 45. When asked about Azalea, Eve was very truthful about her opinions about the rapper.

“The blaccent. Is that horrible?,” Eve said. “A lot of people gonna get mad at that, say what you want, but f*** it. I’m saying it in a sense that…she’s from a different place. I’ve said this before, It would be dope to hear her with HER swag, what are you, who are you and what is that? That’s the only reason I say that. [Australians] are so dope. That’s my only thing.”

Eve added, “I think she’s fly, I think she’s good to look at, I think she’s a pretty girl, she has a dope body. All of that is fine. I just wish there was a little bit more of where she came from.”

After the interview went viral, Azalea went on Twitter to defend herself. She thought Eve was threatened by her because she’s complex and multidimensional. Read her comments below.

Azalea didn’t stop there. The Fancy rapper ripped Steve Madden for a photo shoot she didn’t approve. She collaborated with Madden on a spring/summer collection of footwear.

But Azalea was livid after she saw the company post unapproved photos on Madden’s Tumblr page. She claims the designer did not consult with her about the model photos that were posted online.

“@SteveMadden kinda ruined the creative direction when u added those gross extra pictures to a random tumbler page I had no part in creating,” Azalea wrote.

Azalea added, “Everything in a collaboration is supposed to be mutually approved. But Steve madden did the most disgusting photo shoot ever and never even told me about it,” she added. “I’m just now seeing it as its uploaded on some random tumblr page and i am livid.”

Azalea also tried to clarify her comments on Instagram.

“For the record: I absolutely LOVE these images, they are from the shoot I directed for my Steve Madden campaign,” Azalea wrote. “Im incredibly proud of the shoes we’ve made together, as well as these images that I’ve been anxiously waiting to share with you all. What I had a “rant” about on Twitter isn’t in regards to these pictures, it was about another, different set of images i wasn’t a part of creating that I felt weren’t reflective of my vision and direction for the collection. I’m an artist and I’m extremely passionate and emotional and crazy sometimes because I care ALOoOoot about this shit! I love Steve and he gets it! Artists clash sometimes, it doesn’t mean I dislike the brand. I love Steve Madden as an individual and as a company. I have 3 more seasons I’m making with these guys and I’m going to enjoy it. Shit just happens sometimes and you gotta fight for what you believe in! I believe in this collection immensely; that’s why I just wanted it to be perfect. it comes out tomorrow and I hope you guys enjoy it because I put my heart and soul into them! Sorry for the drama! I didn’t mean for it to turn into some big blog situation (as usual) but I’m not gonna sit back and totally let Steve Madden get dragged under the bus because as a whole they’re awesome ppl.
