Azealia Banks Collaborates With Missy Elliott, Talks Lil Kim Support

There’s no love lost between Azealia Banks and Grand Hustle’s T.I. and Iggy Azalea. But that doesn’t mean the Harlem MC isn’t feeling the love from all her fellow femcees out there.

A day after blasting Tip on Twitter, Banks shared the big news that she’ll be working with Missy Elliott.

“Going to NY Tonight to work with @MissyElliott!!!!!!,” Banks tweeted in total excitement on Monday (April 23). “I just did Coachella as my first official U.S gig, and am working with Missy Elliott! I have a lot to be proud of!!”

The love didn’t stop there, either. Later in the same day, Banks was geeked to find a direct message from none other than Lil Kim herself.

“OMG @LilKim just dm’d ME!!,” Banks tweeted out to the masses. “Hahaaaa it’s fucking on! !!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.”

Earlier in the month, Eve spoke highly of Banks, while sort dismissing Azalea.

“I like Azealia Banks,” E-V-E told The Women of Hip-Hop. “I think her style is dope. If you listen to her lyrics, she knows how to wordplay and I think that’s cute. I’m not really into the Iggy Azalea chick. I can’t really fuck with her music, but her look is crazy. I just can’t believe it.”

All the love was absent earlier on Monday, when Banks addressed Tip’s comments about her and Iggy’s spat as “bitch shit.”

Banks did not wait long to respond. “T.i …. Please shut the fuck up about this,” she tweeted. “Like seriously quit it. Funny how you have plenty of time to address me but have nothing to say to the dudes who been calling u at as a snitch forever. It’s dead… The streets already know what kind of dude you are. Stop making yourself look softer by dragging this out. What a fucking clown.”—Jakinder Singh
