Erykah Badu capped off a busy week — during which she dropped her new mixtape, But You Caint Use My Phone — by hosting last night’s Soul Train Awards, and the music legend took the opportunity to fire some pretty wild shots at Iggy Azalea.

While onstage hosting, Badu pretended to take a phone call from Azalea during a segment about which stars could hop on the Soul Train. “Iggy?” Badu asked innocently. “Oh no, you can come, ’cause what you doing is definitely not rap.” The audience gasped and applauded before the camera cut quickly to Jidenna, who spilled his own tea about the Australian entertainer last summer.
