Azealia Banks finds herself involved in another beef with a female rapper after going at Lil Kim this morning via Twitter.
At the center of the beef is a song Azealia insists Kim was supposed to appear on for her new mixtape, Broke With Expensive Taste. Azealia claims Kim got heated at her because she wrote her verse instead of letting Kim write it for herself.
"Okay so true tea is that Lil Kim got mad that I wrote a verse for her on a record I wanted her on," Azealia wrote on Twitter. "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 a$$ 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?"
Lil Kim’s publicist CJ Carter. told Allhiphop that Lil Kim has never even spoken to or met Azealia and accused her of stirring up fake beef.
Read the full press release below.
Earlier today a press release went out making a claim that there was friction between Hip Hop Icon “Lil Kim” and aspiring hip artist azealia banks. The release comes as a surprise to our team,being that my client and azealia have NEVER spoke to one another or met AT ALL. Kim was actually very flattered azealia’s public admiration for her, which is why it’s so hard to understand how someone who claims to be a true Lil Kim fan could flip the script so easily on someone who was supposedly their idol. It is also VERY interesting that NO ONE from her team made any attempts to reach out to anyone from our team to voice any concerns or problems that they may have had. I have NEVER heard of anyone having a conflict with someone they have NEVER met with or personally spoke with. We have no idea what they are referencing and have no desire to discuss the matter any further as there is nothing to talk about. It honestly seems that someone from azealia’s team would rather have her fans buy into manufactured drama instead of buying music. Kim knows nothing of any beef, and furthermore has had nothing but nice things to say about her. We don’t know what this is and will not address this any further. It seems that this is another sad attempt by someone trying to use my client for publicity. We wish her nothing but the best.
