A$AP Rocky and his mob are making a run for it this year, but his fellow Harlem spitter Azealia banks is also making a name for herself in the game. Fresh off a trip from Abu Dhabi, the young rapper was excited to share a few accomplishments on her Twitter account on Tuesday (January 3)—an official spot at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival (“First confirmed act for coachellaaaaaa. Toooooooooooo excited”), and a #3 spot on BBC’s Sound of 2012 list—but she also had a few words to throw at Kreayshawn. The “Gucci Gucci” rapper rubbed Banks the wrong way when she retweeted a link to her popular single “212” that led to a pornographic website. Not one to censor herself, Banks (who Kanye has dubbed “the future of music”) immediately had a few things to say to Kreayshawn.
@KREAYSHAWN “you think you’re funny?,” she wrote. “you’re a dumb bitch. And you can’t rap. I’ll sit on your face. … Fall back sl– Lol. This is how bitches wanna start the new year ? They want their mics ate this early ? Oh man. I can’t I can’t I can’t. Right now. I simply. Omfg. Why fuck with me tho? What have I ever said about you or done to you for that matter? Lolololololololol Ok. Ok. I’m done. This is silly. cannot.”
Kreayshawn played the innocent card, writing that she couldn’t understood why Banks reacted the way she did. “Did I just get smashed on twitter because I was supporting a fellow female? I sure did… *confused*”she wrote. “Come on you mad because I retweeted your link? Because I like your music? Pffff get outta here! Not a fan anymore.”
According to Digital Spy, Banks pinpointed the issue in a tweet that no longer appears on her timeline, writing, “whatever. Of All the things to rt, u rt something from pornhub. pick your fights more wisely. And when u do pick one don’t switch it up once someone’s at your neck.”
After saying her peace, Banks brushed the issue off, continuing with more positive tweets. “In more important news. I came in #3 on the bbc sound of 2012 list. Yay!! Plus will be performing at coachella 2012!” she wrote. “Lol. So sorry that I have wasted my energy. I’m better than this. … I promise, no more acknowledging whack bitches for 2012. These girls are trying to distract me. I have everything to gain. And they have everything to lose. From now on I will no longer react to any shade thrown my way. Especially if said shade thrower is trying to be subliminal and sideways Subliminal shots are #pu–y …. And not the good kind. Only smiles and and accomplishments from now on. ”
