It seems to become a regular thing. Azealia Banks freestyles over a beat that ain’t hers, gets called back and then throws a tantrum. Earlier, Dutch producer Munchi found out about her view on copyright, but even more her inability to discuss it calmly. New victim? Youtube-made superstar Baauer.
Yesterday Azealia Banks released a freestyle on a track of Baauer, which blew up thanks to the brilliant Youtube-meme The Harlem Shake, named after and featuring his track with the same title. At this time there are probably more people that know the shake than people that know Azealia Banks. So, in this case, it’s not so much a case of using less famous tracks to gain credit yourself (as was the Munchi-case), though Baauer decided to let Azealia’s video be taken down.
@azealiabanks cause its not ur song lol
In consequence, not seeming to have learnt from earlier beefs, Azealia goes all out against Baauer and some of her earlier victims. To her those guys are “pussies” who “don’t belong in hip-hop”. Not even for a moment she seems to realize that without those pussies, she wouldn’t even have a beat to rap on.
Azealia Banks always gives the boys something new to talk about.
True. But wouldn’t she like it to be positive talk sometimes? She’d better make a good album some time soon.
