A Brief History of Azealia Banks' Many Beefs

Another day, another Azealia Banks beef.

Earlier today, Azealia beefed with both T.I. and his wife Tiny. When will this girl stop? 

Banks has a bad attitude and by now, no one in the industry wants to work with her. 

Take a look at the brief history of the many Azealia Banks beefs:


Iggy Azalea

The two female rappers have been beefing for years now. It all started when Banks fired shots on Twitter, saying, "And **** Iggy Azalea, I had a song called 'P*ssy' before she ever did. Here's a link to my song. it's better."


Angel Haze

Azealia tweeted "Seriously, if you were not born and raised in NY…. DON'T CLAIM NY. YOU ARE NOT A NEW YORKER." This set off Haze who is not from NY, but just recorded a song called "New York." The two went back and forth on Twitter and even recorded their own diss tracks: (Azealia diss track) (Angel diss track)


Perez Hilton

In-between her heated beef with fellow female rapper Angel Haze, Perez Hilton commented "You got something against girls with small breasts???" Of course, Azealia popped off and started calling Perez a "messy f*****," and other homophobic slurs.

Baauer released the viral sensation "Harlem Shake." Banks did a remix of the track, and rapped over it. Baauer had SoundCloud take down the remix immediately. She tweeted asking why he was c***blocking. Baauer responded that it wasn't her song. Banks began calling him names, the usual.  


Rita Ora

Rita Ora posted a picture on Instagram with jelly shoes, claiming she was bringing them back in style. Azealia went off on Rita Ora saying she already wore jellies last year, then called Rita "Rihanna's understudy."


Lady Gaga

Gaga and Banks collaborated on a track called "Red Flame," which was dropped from Gaga's Artpop album. Banks remained bitter, and fired shots at Gaga for dressing as a mermaid, which according to Banks, is HER thing. *Sigh*

Azealia met up with Disclosure for sushi and music and things. She tweeted that they had the "greatest studio session EVAR. !!!!!" Disclosure killed the rumors by stating that they barely met once and the song doesn't even have a chorus yet. Banks responded saying she scrapped it from her record and that she had better songs for the LP. Etc., etc. 



November 2013

Banks fired shots at "ATM Jam" collaborator Pharrell, blaming the single's lack of success to the lack of promotion by Skateboard P. Banks insulted Pharrell and his light-skin.

Banks threw shade at T.I.'s wife Tiny on Twitter, saying Tiny has a "meth face" and can't read. T.I. responded with this Instagram picture. Azealia threatened T.I. back with a lawsuit. Jeez.
