*After a week in which Iggy Azalea has been criticized, accused (again) of appropriating black culture, threatened by hackers and schooled on her chosen music genre by a legend in the game, the rapper has responded.

Azalea fired off a string of tweets to address her haters. In one, the Australian entertainer says she finds it “patronizing to assume I have no knowledge of something I’m influenced by, but I’ve also grown up with strangers assuming that.”

She didn’t mention any names, but it’s pretty obvious that message was for Q-Tip, who tweeted Iggy the entire history of hip hop’s roots in black culture.

On Tuesday, will.i.am came to the 24-year-old’s defense and urged her to stay focused on her own goals despite being accused of misappropriating black culture.

“@IggyAzelea hiphop is global now… it doesn’t matter if [you’re] white or black… thanks for contributing & spreading our culture positively,” he tweeted. “[It] saddens me that people are making a big deal about race in hiphop & not ethics… today’s ethics goes against our foundation,” said the 39-year-old Black Eyed Peas singer before noting that Blondie “helped #hiphop expand beyond the hood with a song called #rapture.”

He also urged Iggy to focus on her own goals. “At the end of the day who cares what people think… do what you love… stay #fancy… #congrats.”

Rapper Lupe Fiasco, 32, echoed those sentiments in a short exchange with a fan who demanded to know why he supports the Australian rapper.

“Iggy has a place in HipHop… her place… @MisGina_Kool,” he wrote explaining that Azalea isn’t the first artist to imitate her inspiration and she won’t be the last.

Iggy also thanked both Lupe Fiasco and will.i.am for coming to her defense in her latest string of tweets listed below:
