After dropping her surprise project “Slay-Z” last month, Azealia Banks is back with the visuals for her track, “Big Big Beat.” She dances all over New York city without a care in the world ,and could give a damn about any lawsuits. Watch the video after the jump.
Azealia Banks is notorious for speaking her mind on Twitter about everyone and everything. When she made some homophobic slurs on Twitter, Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson was NOT here for it.
In 2015, Erykah Badu responded to a fan who’d asked if she listens to Azealia Banks, and wrote, “Tried.” Simple enough, but of course because Azealia is Azealia, she couldn’t take it in stride. She responded to Badu with, “…. Jealousy,” and then a brief exchange occurred, with Azealia actually wanting to fight Badu. SMH! Now over a year later, the pair have buried the hatchet, after Badu decided to extend an olive branch to her younger peer. “sis. 1 thing I know 4sho about YOU is that you r an advocate 4 your folks. For that I humbly apologize,” she tweeted. Banks then accepted the apology, an added, “i apologize for all the stupid things I said in response. I honestly look up to you and think your incredible.” Check out the full exchange in the gallery!
Earlier today, Azealia Banks read what turned out to be a satire (aka fake) interview with Sarah Palin. With the headline quoting Palin as saying, “Even The French Understand That Slavery Wasn’t Our Fault, Because The Negroes Liked It,” you can imagine how the piece went on from there. In a series of now-deleted tweets (as she must have realized her error at some point,) Azealia wrote that Palin should have a train ran on her by “the biggest burliest blackest negroes,” among other expletives. The tweets quickly went viral, and caused enough of a headline that it prompted Palin herself to respond. And while I can’t stand her either, she may be the lesser of two evils in this situation.!
Azealia Banks appeared in court today for a hearing regarding her December run-in with a NYC bouncer. The troubled rapper is being charged with misdemeanor assault, harassment and disorderly conduct after the incident at Up&Down, and now may face some new charges from her behavior while leaving court! Paparazzi were on hand to capture Banks as she exited the courtroom, much to her apparent dismay. She is captured on film detouring from her path to go at one photographer specifically, attempting to smack the camera out of his hand and then telling him, “Suck my d*ck, f*ggot!” She is such a gem, this one.
