Erykah Badu—whose new mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone is next-level phenomenal—hosted the 2015 Soul Train Music Awards on Sunday night (Nov. 15). In her monologue, she play-acted conversations with André 3000 and Young Thug, telling them not to come because she was “banning all rap this year.”

Then Iggy Azalea rang in. “Oh, no no no no no no no, you can come," Badu pretended to tell the Australian. "'Cause what you're doing is definitely not rap.” And the crowd went wild:

Winners at the Soul Train Music Awards included Jidenna for Best New Artist, the Weeknd for Best R&B/Soul Male Artist and Album of the Year, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ "Uptown Funk" for Video of the Year and Song of the Year, Silentó’s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" for Best Dance Performance and Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" for Best Hip Hop Song of the Year. (What happened to "no rap"?!)
