Music newcomer Azealia Banks is not letting Grand Hustle rapper T.I.'s recent defense of Australian emcee Iggy Azalea stop her anti-XXL Freshman 12 movement and has promptly gone after the "King of the South."

Resorting to Twitter, Banks questioned Tip's insistance on standing between two female artists.

"Lol I NEVER needed the next n*gga to sit up on a radio show with me and defend me.," she tweeted March 10th.
"Furthermore, n*ggas r sitting up here trying to mask/defend what homegirl said. F*ck outta here."
"Everybody got something slick to say, but no one got an explanation."
"Come on T.I.... N*ggas is not scared of u and whatever shit u got to say on some radio show."
"@tip you corny for that one."
"LMFAOO how u a grown man commenting on what's going on between two girls. Come on son. Stop it." (Azealia Banks' Twitter)

A few days ago, T.I. publicly came to Iggy's defense in light of Banks' initial remarks.

"Strategically if she really cares about a freshmen cover maybe she could hope that she'll suck enough to get shelved and then next year when the freshmen cover comes back around, maybe she'll still be a freshman," Tip said, referring to XXL's policy of Freshmen being qualified only if they have yet to drop their studio debut. "If you spend half of your day getting money and the other half of your day counting money, you ain't got no time in your day to worry about nobody else." (Drama Like The DJ TV)

Last month, Iggy took to Twitter and killed beef speculation in light of Banks' disses.

"The blog titles should read "girl uses iggy azaleas name for shine" not "beef" get a grip. Two ppl have to care for beef to happen.," she tweeted early Wednesday (February 29) morning.
"Too much talking, not enough music being made. Let's do what we all came to do best MAKE MUSIC. F*ck the gossip and yapping. It's stupid."
"Real b*tches feel me. #HustleGang"
"S/O to the females that stay positive and respectful. The cover is a win for all the girls... Hope next year there's 2 on the cover!" (Iggy Azaela's Twitter)

A day prior, Banks went on a Twitter tirade going at the rap newcomer.

"Iggy Azalea on the XXL freshman list is all wrong," remarked Banks on Twitter. "How can you endorse a white woman who called herself a 'runaway slave master'?" She continued, "Sorry guys. But I'm pro black girl. I'm not anti white girl, but I'm also not here for any1 outside of my culture trying to trivialize very serious aspects of it." Iggy, who is affiliated with T.I.'s Grand Hustle family, did not personally address the comments, but did respond to her critics. "You can't block my blessings! Today I'm celebrating! Get with it or kick rocks!" she tweeted. "First female freshman. Ever. Period. Thanks world! I used to stick XXL on my bedroom door, now I'm on the cover. Life is great." (Rap-Up)
