It’s becoming more and more evident that Azealia Banks is getting up there on the list of artists who are just the absolute worst. I already couldn’t take her crap anymore during that beef with Angel Haze, but now she’s hit a new low in terms of bat-shit insanity. As you might have noticed, Baauer’s awesome 2012 single “Harlem Shake” is blowing up and has officially become a YouTube meme. That’s fine and all, of course, as it’s pretty much just harmless fun. Yes, I’ll recognize the problems people have with the fact no one is actually doing the Harlem shake, but that’s not the topic today.
Yesterday afternoon, Banks released her own version of Baauer’s track while stating that she was trying to clear the song for her debut, Broke With Expensive Taste. Seeing how she couldn’t accomplish that, Banks, who is a proud Harlemite, released her remix to the web. It wasn’t anything notable, to say the least, but it did catch the attention of Baauer, who had her track removed from Soundcloud. Upon seeing this, the ever-classy Banks fired shots at the producer on Twitter, because of course she did.
Here’s what happened after he simply said, “cause its [sic] not your song lol.”
Some of Baauer’s contemporaries then jumped in, leading Banks to begin spewing out the homophobic slurs…
Sigh. I know what you might be thinking, “Why are you giving her the attention she deserves?” I understand that, but I still firmly believe that idiots like this need to be put on blast. And, if nothing else, maybe Interscope (her label) will continue keeping tabs on her asshattery. When’s that album dropping again?
