"I didn’t want to see Giselle and Blue Ivy’s cabaret. I wasn’t leaving the comfort of my mansion to hear her sing Mary J Blige covers and literally watch the same show I can watch on Instagram."
Azealia Banks is back at it with (admittedly entertaining) vicious celebrity takedowns via Instagram.
This time, she’s once again taking aim at Beyoncé, while also contrastingly heaping praise upon fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj.
Saturday (August 26) Banks took to Instagram and reposted a headline reading: “Zayn Malik Charged: Singer To Attend Anger Management, Domestic Violence Program After Calling Yolanda A ‘Dutch Slut'“.
She then launched into a lengthy rant against Disney star Skai Jackson, Julia Fox, Managing Partner and CEO Matt Bates of Primary Talent International, Franz Ferdinand and rapper CupcakKe for defending the former One Direction star for defending Malik after she accused him of plagiarising her music video in 2016.
“Hahahahahhahahaha. Imagine anyone who had something to say in 2016, having the nerve to say a damn thing about me now. Skai Jackson is still in the trenches looking stupid…. And you all defended this wannabe at my expense. A woman’s intuition is always right.”

She continued, “I’ve literally grossed tens of millions of dollars for people like Matt Bates at @primarytalent agency for him to decide he was too proper to associate himself with my so called “bigotry” yet had NO PROBLEM profiting off of my extremely vulgar and explicit rap music,” she wrote.
“@rinsefm I’m looking DIRECTLY at you – wimpy, trash, need more riboflavin jumble tooth hot breath rolets pork rind scented, musty tea kettle tap water guzzling excuses of men who tried to Digitally lynch me for defending myself. @franz_ferdinand I remember you played out losers trying to jump in on it too! Oh and WHERE IS @cupcakkeafreakk??! Did u ever get the attention you were begging so hard for that day by defending this roach? Or did he ignore you and let you know, that you were also not good enough for his tweets?”
“As for Ms. Ratbreeder @juliafox … the girl who’s got mice running around pissing and pooping on all of her childrens toys and belongings thinking it’s CUTE – actually had the nerve to physically threaten me, (oh yes honey, you better have that same energy the next time we cross paths) do you think your 8 year late opinion on this is still warranted?lmao also, slow down on whatever stimulant youre on because you’re developing a tick. Drug abuse, and child neglect …. Lmao, trust that it will only take 3months for all of your worst nightmares to come true. “
But it didn’t stop there —she added: “And to All of you UK grime scene dirtbags – YOU ARE STILL unimportant and insignificant to the greater hiphop musical lexicon. Almost seven years later and every single rap artist to come out of the UK is a lack-luster facsimile of one of the UNITED STATES’ GREATS. Now, I’m going to need the entirety of the UK music industry to spit shine my capezio character shoes and get the fuck out of my way. You have ZERO CLUE, of the type of havoc I am about to cause for each and every asshole who thinks he’s “spittin,” fire. No, no no… I’m about to BREATHE FIRE IN THIS BITCH. JU HERD?!”
The real tea, however, was spilled in the comments when a follower her opinion on Queen B’s Renaissance Tour, asking, “How was Renaissance tour?”
Banks quickly fired off: “I stayed home. I decided I didn’t want to see Giselle and blue ivy’s cabaret. I wasn’t leaving the comfort of my mansion to hear her sing Mary j blige covers and literally watch the same show I can watch on instagram,” she said.
“In a big way I kind of got over her that night. For a woman who’s done so much nasty stuff behind the scenes to stifle other black female artists yet STILL is too afraid to come at adele for ki’ing on her little lemonade stunt and tearing a Grammy in half while she’s in the front row pregnant??? Lmao pfffft, literally she BEGS people like Dixie chicks, Shakira, and Adele for collabs but doesn’t pay the legion of black women who pen her songs. “

She added in a second comment: “HOW DARE SHE HAVE KEVIN JZ PRODIGY PERFORMING FROM THE PIT. but Always kowtowing to white women who probably aren’t even racist, they just smell the thirst and fakeness lmao. Lol sis tried to sell us workout clothes and never once – did we see her working out. B-day is an integral part of who I am as an artist and I really don’t want to ruin that precious piece of nostalgia watching her gay bait and do lil uzi Vert tiktok choreo. It’s whack. Just give all the songs to Chloe Bailey and stop trying to make blue Ivy happen because Chloe obviously makes u jealous. LMAOO.”
It’s not the first time she’s slammed Bey — back in June last year, she also slammed Bey for “erasing” her contributions to music after she accused her of biting her house sound.
“You’re so sneaky. You’re trying to erase my contributions to house music, dance music, electronic music and all that and make it as if I’m…God knows who. Just encapsulate me in time. You’re a fucking creep. You’re a fucking creep, Beyoncé. And you watch everything do,” she said at the time.

Meanwhile, in a wild change of pace, Banks “Like I would never even think you’d like something like this,” Azealia wrote on her Story when reposting an image of the Anaconda rapper wearing a saucy ‘fit for new single, Last Time I Saw You.
“THIS IS THE BEST LOOK I HAVE EVER SEEN [YOU] IN. EVERRRRRRR OKAY? Nicki I have never seen you this comfortable in your own skin… I’m not even trying to shade you… But you have never ever looked this chic, stylish, sexy, at ease.”
