I'm still trying to figure out if Twitter is the best or worst thing to ever happen to rappers. The ability to interact with their fans and connect with fellow artists is great, but it also seems like there are new conflicts constantly jumping off as well.
The most recent beef involves 22-year old Bay Area rapper Kreayshawn and fast rising 20-year old Harlem emcee Azealia Banks.
Banks, who according to MTV has been dubbed the “the future of music ” by Kanye West has a new song and video "212" in which she repeats the line "I guess that c*nt gettin eaten" several times.
On Wednesday (January 4) Pornhub sent out a tweet asking their followers if they had heard "212," and added a link to the video.
Pornhub's tweet was then retweeted by Kreashawn to her 575,000 followers. Azealia apparently didn't like being associated with a porn site and went off on Kreashawn.
@KREAYSHAWN “you think you're funny?,” Azealia wrote. “You're a dumb b*tch. And you can't rap. I'll sit on your face. ... Fall back sl*t Lol. This is how b*tches wanna start the new year ? They want their mics ate this early ? Oh man. I can't I can't I can't. Right now. I simply. Omfg. Why f*ck with me tho? What have I ever said about you or done to you for that matter? Lolololololololol Ok. Ok. I'm done. This is silly. cannot.”
Kreayshawn replied, saying she didn't realize she had done something offensive.
@KREASHAWN "Whatever. Of All the things to rt, u rt something from pornhub," Azealia shot back. "Didn't you just get your a** handed to you backstage at the vma's by one of Rick Ross' peeps? You're on video looking shook as f*ck. You're always tryna be cute and funny but your not built for it. Really you're not. Pick your fights more wisely. And when u do pick one don't switch it up once someone's at your neck.”
“Did I just get smashed on twitter because I was supporting a fellow female? I sure did... *confused*” Kreayshawn replied.
Azealia seemed to be ready to move past it after that.
“Lol. So sorry that I have wasted my energy. I'm better than this. ... I promise, no more acknowledging whack b*tches for 2012," she wrote. "These girls are trying to distract me. I have everything to gain. And they have everything to lose. From now on I will no longer react to any shade thrown my way. Especially if said shade thrower is trying to be subliminal and sideways."
On the music front, Azealia has been tapped to perform at this year's Coachella Festival.
