Azealia Banks started off her weekend by picking yet another Twitter fight. After performing at Australia’s Future Music Festival on Friday, the rapper accused the Stone Roses, who were also playing the festival, of intentionally sabotaging her set at the request of her former manager.
“Big apologies on behalf of the stone roses to my fans at the festival today,” Banks tweeted in the opening shot of her rant. “My ex tour manager made a pact with the stone roses saying they’d sabotage my set because I fired him.. And they decided to check their equipment behind me during my set. Fuck those old saggy white n***as stone roses. I wish them nothing but excrement and death.”
Banks, whose new single “Yung Rapunxel” is due out March 26th, then took a moment to reflect on what the band’s alleged actions indicate about her own status in the industry. “Wow! I must really fucking be a superstar… You’ve got an established band trying to sabotage my lil rap bitch shine,” she wrote. “Wow a bunch of old white men trying to bully a young black girl…. What the fuck else is new in this world ???”
In early January, Banks made headlines by engaging in an extended Twitter feud with rapper Angel Haze, which spilled over to include celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. In recent weeks, she also took on Baauer after the DJ had her remix of “Harlem Shake” removed from Soundcloud.
