T.I. and Azealia Banks Exchange Insults Over Radio and Twitter

What started as a minor beef between Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea has now seemingly evolved into a feud between T.I. and Banks.

“I mean I know they’re going through their thing, but the fact that she’s speaking upon me and mine and – I never – I ain’t even see it,” T.I. said on WGCI’s Tony Sculfield & The Morning Riot show, after being informed about some of Banks’s previous tweets about him. “That is what I consider – And excuse my language, but that’s bitch shit. You know what I’m saying? I’m a man.”

Banks did not wait long to respond. “T.i …. Please shut the fuck up about this. Like seriously quit it,” the Harlem native tweeted Monday (April 23). “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.”

The feud between Banks and Azalea dates back to February 28, the day XXL’s 2012 Freshman Class cover was revealed. Banks was not pleased to see Iggy as one of the chosen artists. As a result, Azalea and Tip went on to address Banks’ criticism soon after, but would dismiss it afterwards, for the most part. That is when Banks really started to address T.I.’s involvement. A$AP Rocky, a friend of both femcees, campaigned for the feud to end, as previously reported by XXLmag.com.

Eve, on the other hand, did not comment on the feud between Banks and Azalea, but did give her synopsis on each femcee. “I like Azealia Banks. I think her style is dope. If you listen to her lyrics, she knows how to wordplay, and I think that’s cute.” E-V-E also went on to say, “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.”

Tip recently called into DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45 show and re-emphasized the same thoughts he spoke about on WGCI. “Listen, I really don’t know anything about like – Like, you know, blogs, gossip and that kind of stuff, man,” Tip asserted when asked if Eve’s comments were out of context. “I think that’s – Excuse my language, that’s bitch shit. You know what I’m saying? I stay true to the guy code. You know what I’m saying? And, I do what men do. That’s feminine.”

“You ain’t got no business addressing me,” Tip advised Banks, in his WGCI interview, before her most recent tweets. “Get your man to address me. If you got a man, get him to address me, and he and I can speak on it. But you and me, keep dealing with that woman. Y’all handle that. Me and you, we ain’t got nowhere to go with that. I do what men do.”–Christopher Minaya

    • Adam Banahan

      @bullets For that lil skank Azealia Banks to even start this shit is proof she is a chicken head hoe. She has nothing to stand on. She brings down what women in the past have established in hiphop…I don’t think talking about licking c*nt etc is lyrically dope. It just shows how simple she is. None of these people are true hiphop so wtf you on about? irrelevant

  • Oh Boy



    • RAw

      But he had no problem dissing flip, shawty low, or ludacris old girl isnt even making noise outside the east coast so wtf you talking about?

    For T.I. to be talking this stuff now he should have just stayed out of it from the beginning. That’s what MEN do, they don’t get between two women arguing from jump. I understand that Iggy is his artist but he should’ve let her speak for her self. Banks just pulled his card now he switching up his whole tune. T.I. made his self look like a clown in this situation.

    ” da streets already know what kind of person u are” lol… she really makin herself look like a str8 fool… gotta know better; summm bullshit is even off limits, n gotta be steer cleared of… sum dumb shit, so dumb n look so bad n ignorant – 1 may not come back from… n can be hard 2 know @ da time… kinda funny tho

    Trouble Man

    lets get a date 4 dat trouble comin


    My advice to T.I is that you say you’re keeping it how men do,
    Let me tell you how a real man would handle this situation.
    First,you wouldn’t have put yourself in a petty situation between two females.
    If you know Azealia is angry over being ignored then let her vent it out,in the end she’ll only make herself look stupid.

    Two,you don’t need to be talkin about if she has a man let me and him shoot a fair one.You know as soon as you do somethin your dumb ass is going right back to jail and then all that talk about how you’ve changed and how much you love your family will really seem like whatever you say is a lie.

    We all know you’re just eatin off of Iggy and we know after 1 album she’ll be in that Asher Roth box and Azealia will still be continuing on mixtape 280 making freestyle raps.Just get your money and keep your mouth close,you’re home now,don’t let someone who’s talking out of line make you blow your cool.

      First of all, who is azealia to even be starting beef anyway come on ma, It’s way to early in the game for you to be starting beefs with anyone. It just seems like a gain for her own Self-Notoriety.
