Insulting fellow femcees—like Iggy Azalea and Kreayshawn—in her relative age group is one thing.
But people really did seem to take offense to Azealia Banks blasting rap veterans like T.I. and most recently Lil Kim on Twitter.
When XXL posed the question to fans, ‘Is Azealia Banks out of line for blasting rap veterans like Lil Kim and T.I. on Twitter?’ on Monday (May 7), a resounding 68% responded, ‘Yes, she should show more respect and not handle matters this way.’
Thirty-two percent responded, ‘No, she’s young and entitled to her own opinion.’
The Queen Bee was the last known rapper that the Harlem rhymeslinger chose to air out via Twitter.
“Okay so true tea is that Lil Kim got mad that I wrote a verse for her on a record I wanted her on,” Banks tweeted out on Sunday (May 6). “Everyone 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.
“So….. My question was and is still… IS SHE DOING THE TRACK?” the feisty Banks continued. “Who cares about what you use to do…. WILL YOU DO THE TRACK??! All this extra sh-t is stupid. Keep closing your own doors ma. @lilkim. There is no beef. At all.”
Banks’ debut single, “212,” was released last December to solid fanfare.—XXL Staff
