Azealia Banks may have as many songs as beefs at this point. Following her recent spat with T.I. and Iggy Azalea, the super-sassy Harlem artist went on the attack against Lil Kim over a failed collaboration. Banks claims that Kim was unresponsive to an offer to appear on a record she was working on. Trying to jump-start the process, Banks ghostwrote a verse for Kim and subsequently suffered the wrath of her assistant.
“Okay so true… Lil Kim got mad that I wrote a verse for her on a record I wanted her on,” Banks wrote. “Everybody knows Lil Kim doesn’t write her own raps and I saw this as a faster more efficient way of getting the track done. She then had her assistant write me some long ass offensive email about how Lil Kim writes her own raps and doesn’t need anyone’s help.”
After the short tirade, Kim’s publicist released a statement dubbing the entire episode manufactured drama. “My client and Azealia have NEVER spoke to one another or met AT ALL. Kim was actually very flattered by Azealia’s public admiration for her, which is why it’s so hard to understand how someone who claims to be a true Lil Kim fan could flip the script so easily on someone who was supposedly their idol.”
Banks, apparently sick of the back-and-forth, called it quits soon after. “Another week, another Twitter feud,” she wrote. “I’m deleting it now.”
