Azealia Banks former business partner RZA has stepped out to share his side of her Russell Crowe-fronted story.
Banks accused him of doing nothing after Crowe is said to have picked her up, spat at her and called her the N-word.

Banks’ side of the story below…
‘ATM Jam’ maestra Azealia Banks has dispensed her fair share of verbal attacks over the years, but if her Facebook rants lifted to the social media outlet just moments ago is any indication, it appears someone has physically turned the tide on her.
“Someone,” in this case, would be Academy Award winner Russell Crowe. According to Banks, the actor not only physically accosted her, but also spat at her and delivered an onslaught of racial slurs.
Shocking rant inside:
Is Azealia Banks on the comeback trail?

Femcee Teams Up With Nicki Minaj’s Ex
After expressing regret about her angsty actions, Azealia Banks is back in the lab.
Interestingly, the fiery femcee has found an unlikely collaborator in Safaree Samuels – Nicki Minaj‘s ex-boyfriend and creative partner.
Currently a cast member on ‘Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood,’ 35-year-old Samuels has actively been trying to carve out his own success narrative.

Taking to Instagram, Azealia shared a preview.

When Azealia Banks dropped the blazing ‘212’ four years ago, she looked poised for superstardom.
From her flow to her unapologetic brand of feisty, she was hailed as a much-needed breath of fresh air on a scene that had become majorly mono.
Yet, as the story goes, the years that followed have seen the New Yorker lock horns with a who’s who of the music industry. She’s also made it routine to rile up various groups on social media.
Recent times have seen her plentiful episodes catch up with her; slots at festivals have been snatched back, sales are drier than the Sahara, and fellow artists seem to be steering clear. A stark difference to a time when the likes of Lady Gaga and Pharrell were dialling her digits.
Feeling the weight of her woes, the femcee took to Facebook (she’s been banned from Twitter) today to express regret.
Her words await below…

Remember when Azealia Banks was rap’s new “it chick”? Recall that brief window when her Twitter wars hadn’t eclipsed her star?
Well, we do.
There existed a short spell of time (following ‘212’) when the New Yorker was the name on everyone’s lips. Rumors of high-profile collaborations were plentiful, yet many never surfaced. A fact which left folk wondering whether it was her attitude or creative differences that caused the canning/s.
While many of those questions remain unanswered, one of her would-be partner’s has been revealed as none other than Lady Gaga.
A rough demo of ‘Red Flame’ – a song the pair collaborated on – surfaced today. And it makes for a unique listen.
Word has it the track was recorded during the recording sessions for Gaga’s ill-fated ‘ARTPOP’ album.
