Earlier this week Erykah Badu made a joke at Iggy Azalea’s expense when she said, “What you definitely do is not rap.” Though the Aussie hip-hop star didn’t respond directly to Badu’s diss, she gave an update on her album and spoke about those who discredit her work in a series of tweets on Tuesday.

“We are days from 2016, but I came online today and saw its [sic] still cool to try and discredit my 2014 accomplishments. LOL, f—ing hell,” she wrote. “Seems exhausting. Anyway — I’ve been enjoying the holiday season and I hope you all have too.”

She then spoke about a forthcoming album, which she said was called Digital Distortion in October. The collection is supposed to be the long-rumored follow-up to 2014’s The New Classic. “I don’t really know what I’m doing with my music release; but I’m finished (except for getting the features recorded),” she wrote.

Earlier this year, Azalea’s mentor T.I. told Hot 97 that he wasn’t working with her anymore, but later clarified to the Associated Press, “We’re focused on making the next Iggy record and dodge the same adversities we faced last time.”

In addition to providing the music update, Azalea also posted about her horse’s health and Lady Gaga’s Christmas commercial.
