Iggy Azelea to work with Azelia Banks despite long feud

Much shock to their fans, it seems like everything is fine between Iggy Azalea and Azelia Banks now.

Iggy Azelea revealed that the highly controversial rapper, whom she's had a long and storied feud with, would be making an appearance on Iggy's upcoming album ' Digital Distortion'.

The 28-year-old rapper announced this news on her Snapchat as she wrote, "Public service announcement. Azealia is going to be on DD. We are collaborating. Burn your wigs now or preserve them in your freezer for release day."

For the unversed, the two had an explosive and racially charged Twitter feud in 2014 after Azealia dissed Iggy's talents or lack thereof.

Recently, the ' Black Widow' posted a note on social media saying she wanted to get past all the hate, as she wrote, "I just want to say FYI; re A. Banks. Call me crazy but girl. I don't hate you. I don't know you to hate you."

Adding, "I believe you may want to meet me in person so you can steal a lock of my hair and cast a spell hoping I die (lol) I don't agree with many of your opinions but honestly, at times I empathize with you as a creative Gemini woman. I wish you had spoken to me before deciding I was out to get you when we first came on the scene, but that's also typical Gemini reaction shit (I get it). As a 27 year old adult woman just know: I wish you well from one human to another and joke collaboration or not as adults we should move past trivial beef with strangers."

Many of Iggy's loyal fans responded to her announcement on 4 July with outrage, but the performer tried to spin the collab in a positive light, writing, "If you cant understand my desire to turn YEARS worth of negativity into a positive interaction then that's your loss my dear. peace! I don't expect you guys to understand why i would collaborate with someone who has publicly said they hope I die."
