Azealia Banks Goes to War with Rap Newcomer Angel Haze on Twitter
Azealia Banks is Twitter beefing again — this time against up-and-coming rapper Angel Haze. According to The Drop.fm, the bickering is over a tweet the ‘212’ rapper made about Haze not being a native New Yorker.
“Seriously, if you were not born and raised in NY…. DON’T CLAIM NY. YOU ARE NOT A NEW YORKER,” wrote Banks. This prompted Haze, who is a Detroit native, to respond with several tweets threatening to physically hurt Banks, which, unceremoniously, have been deleted from her feed.
The cat fight on the social media network continued with each rapper taking shots at each other’s physical appearance, lyrical skills and who is the bigger lesbian.
Although Haze denies getting rid of her tweets, she did, however, drop a scathing diss song just hours after their Twitter feud. The Diplo-produced ‘On the Edge’ features Haze ripping into Banks. “B—- I got ammo on you / B—-, you don’t want war,” she warns.
Back on Twitter, Banks seems unfazed by Haze’s diss song. “YOU WANT THE P—- SOOOO BADDDDDD @ANGELHAZE LOLOL..this diss track is not even hot!!! lmfaooooooooooo !!!!!!” she tweeted.
In addition, Diplo has distanced himself from the fracas. “Diplo just calls me and tells me she wrote that track months ago and he had nothing to do with it,” Banks revealed on her feed.
Banks also added that she will drop a new song, ‘No Problems,’ today (Jan. 4) in response to Haze’s song. “Lol I def used that energy to write a fly new jam tho. It’s not even really a diss anymore! Haha !!!” she writes. “Just straight fly uptown NYC s—!!”
