Fresh: Azealia Banks – ‘Yung Rapunxel’
Miss Azealia Banks has landed with the lead single to her debut studio album with Interscope, ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’. The 21-year-old’s track is produced by Lil Internet and hears the rapper spit over a powerful, bass-friendly dance beat before later roaring over the song. The track will hit iTunes on March 26, with her album being released (hopefully soon) afterwards…
Meanwhile, Azealia has been outspoken with her peers more often than not recently. Following several not-so-friendly online exchanges with Angel Haze, Perez Hilton and Shystie, the ‘212’ artist has tweeted about homegrown talent Rita Ora, as they both performed at Future Music Festival.
Banks wrote on Twitter: “Lol Rita Ora is so thirsty. She climbed over the wall of my dancers dressing room to snap photos… She’s been TRYING IT on this tour man” – she then took it further with the third tweet: “She’s mad she’s Rihanna’s understudy.”
Rita allegedly sent Azealia a text about the tweets, which the Harlem rapper screen grabbed and shared online alongside the caption, “Shut up Rita Oral. @ritaora” – the alleged text from Ora read: “At the end of the day I don’t know who the f*k u think you are secondly u don’t know me I’ve done nothing but try b nice to u 3rdly ur dancers were talkn to me further more ill see ur ass at the mother**kin concert.”
Azealia ended the rant by saying “@RitaOra try me if you like,” adding “Ever since I arrived on this tour Rita’s been going out of her way to try and intimidate me.
“Taking all these candids of me when I wasn’t looking, then posting and deleting them like a weak b***h.”
Rita is yet to publically respond on the incident – but watch this space. Back to the music - check out Azealia Bank’s single ‘Yung Rapunxel’ below.
