Earlier today, we reported on Azealia Banks’ flurry of insults thrown in the direction of Baauer, who had her remix of his “Harlem Shake” removed from the ‘net after she uploaded it yesterday. Apparently she was trying to acquire the rights to the track for months—that’s how she explained it—and couldn’t get it cleared, so she just released it for free.
It’s still floating around and remains on her Soundcloud page. And given her supreme lack of respect for producers—remember what happened with Munchi?—she’s continued to fire shots at other artists and pretty much anyone in general … using homophobic slurs. She’s also tried to justify it all by saying this: “It’s really time for a cultural shift. All these leftover old world social themes we’re all still trying to hold on to are BOOORRIIING.”
To sum up how we are feeling about this whole mess, we rounded up a collection of choice tweets on the situation. Enjoy.
