Azealia Banks : “Nicki Minaj Invited Me On Tour – But I Can’t Go”

Published: Monday 30th Jul 2012 by David

 

Upon her explosive arrival on the scene, some were led to believe Azealia Banks was anything but fond of fellow Femcee Nicki Minaj, by way of remarks she had made on the latter’s ‘horrendous wigs‘.

However, in what marks a surprising twist in their unconfirmed feud, Azealia has revealed that she was invited by her former school mate to join her on the ‘Pink Friday Arena Tour, which hits the UK this winter.

Details below…

 

Referring to her debut LP ‘Broke With Expensive Taste‘, the Rapper’s decision not to tour with Minaj is believed to have led to Brit belle Misha B taking her place- in support of her debut album.

Quite interestingly, this marks the second the times the ladies have missed out on the chance to work together.

For, in 2009 and 2012 respectively, Minaj and Ms. Banks both made attempts (with the latter being more successful in her bid)  to secure management with Lady GaGa mastermind Troy Carter, with Minaj opting for ‘Hip Hop Since 1978‘.

The management company, with whom she once shared with Azealia endorser Kanye West.

    • Kingphoenix July 30, 2012

      • monstarebel July 30, 2012

      • Yardlowaa July 30, 2012

        true, but thats a MAJOR opportunity,but hey guess she knows best.

    • truth tea July 30, 2012

      no, because rihanna doesnt produce or write her own songs. azealia writes her verses which takes time and effort unlike rihannas music which is released every 12 months

      • stony July 30, 2012

        TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU TRUTH TEA RIHANNNA IS ONE OF THOSE ARTISTS WHO SPEND THEIR TIME ON VACATION WHEN PRODUCERS AND SONGWRITERS WORK ON HER ALBUM WHEN ALL THE SONGS ARE READY SHE JUST COMES OPEN HER MOUTH AND SING WHATEVER SHE HAS TO SING THEN MAKE HITS ITS VERY EASY TO PUT ONE ALBUM A YEAR WHEN IT WORKS LIKE THAT TRUE ARTISTS TAKE TIME TO MAKE SOME MATERIAL BY THEMSELVES

      • RICHANDBEAUTIFUL(JUST LIKE RIH)143 MILLION+++ July 30, 2012

        YOUR P**** IS TOO DRY TO KEEP RIDIN KING RIHS D***!! I LOVE MS BANKS IM ROOTING FOR HER TO SUCCEED OAN CONGRATS ON HER ENDORSEMENT DEALS!!

  2. Dollar$ign$kills July 30, 2012

    I love that she is committed to her music but that tour could have been a huge opportunity to increase her fanbase. Especially since 212 was a hit in Europe. But I’m sure she knows what she’s doing. She needs to build up her US fanbase anyways

  3. Sleazy July 30, 2012

    That would have been great I just started getting into azealia “212” “liqourice” is HOT! Atleast a Collab ?

  4. coco July 30, 2012

    Well im glad some black chicks can get along, but i don’t want Azealia too close to Nicki…She has too many hoodrats around her( Nicki alone i love)

  5. Iconic Iggy July 30, 2012

    Weak. Plenty of artist have worked on albums while on tour.

  6. Kingphoenix July 30, 2012

    Good choice, Azealia you did whats best for your career. Just like when Nicki had to back out of Rihanna’s tour for hers….Anyway Nick, maybe you can get Iggy to open for you…she needs a check, and we all know her album is indefinitely pushed back so…

    • Iconic Iggy July 30, 2012

      Iggy is on tour with Tyga so sit. And her album hasnt even been given a release date yet. Iggy is smart by releasing Glory and then Trapgold before he New Classic. She’s building up a fan base. Rushing into an album is pointless if you dont have fans to buy it. But I bet you already knew that since your always up to date on the latest Iggy news

      • Kingphoenix July 30, 2012

        I was just trying to be helpful hun…I mean really i didn’t even know Tyga was on tour. lmfao. And yeah its “smart” of her to realease an ep then a mixtape before her album, Just like Azealia did………..Anyway, was the Glory ep any good? I know yall iggy fans been waiting awile for it.

      • Kingphoenix July 30, 2012

        Iconic Iggy

        You don’t like Imma Read, Fierce, Aquababe, Runnin, Nathan, Luxury, Paradiso, L8r, Jumanji…You need to listen again babe.lol I can understand not liking the heavy house and electro stuff…but her mixtape is very satisfying. Sometimes it takes a second listen to really understand te grandness of her songs.

        I will give Glory a listen, and if i like it i will lay off the girl..but if i don’t imma just sublty throw shade when i see fit. She is boring me lately.

      • Iconic Iggy July 30, 2012

        @Phoenix

        Glory just dropped and Im definately impressed. Way better than Ignorant Art. Iggy goes in on the track Glory. Give it a listen, you may become a fan 😉

        Aquababe was good lyrically but the beat was messy to me. Jumanji was annoying. L8r was alright, nothing special. Fierece was great but the guy’s part ruined it. Us was the best. She has talent, im not gonna lie.

      • Kingphoenix July 30, 2012

        You didn’t like the guys part in Fierce! Have you ever watched Paris is Burning? You have to watch it and you will get it more i think….Not a big fan of US for some reason, and i love the messiness of Aquababe its raw.

        Imma check out Glory now.

  7. Truth July 30, 2012

    Two.nappy headed stink p**** h*** with tacky weaves amd.clothes on tour? Not! They both ook like they got yeast infections!

    • prettigurlrockD July 30, 2012

      Nicki more so. And no azealia has natural beauty and looks way better. Nicki don’t look that good without makeup and wigs.

      • miranda July 30, 2012

        Nicki looks gorgeous without makeup, f*** you talkin about?

      • prettigurlrockD July 30, 2012

        Nah I think her body looks better. Her face, to me, just doesn’t do the trick.

  8. Slayty Perry July 30, 2012

    Won’t make a difference. Her album will flop anyways. I predict she will sell less than Kreayshawn lmao.

    • Truth July 30, 2012

      Not possible. If she sell ONE cd she’d hav outsold that b****

  9. Truth July 30, 2012

    Two stimk p**** hoez with nappy heads and tacky weaves and outfit on tour? Not! They both look like they got yeast infections! Specialky icki.

    • Truth July 30, 2012

    Love them BOTH

    • Truth July 30, 2012

  11. who cares July 30, 2012

    She should maybe try and get on 4 the U.S. leg of the tour it will show female unity in hip hop and azealia could use the U.S promo cause she big in europe not as big here

    • Truth July 30, 2012

      Nicki doesnt sho unity tho

  12. prettigurlrockD July 30, 2012

    Nicki’s flame is getting weak. Soon enough no one gonna work with this flop h**.

    • prettigurlrockD July 30, 2012

      and let the thumbs down begin…LOL.

  13. LTM July 30, 2012

    Shouldn she be focused on gaining U.S fans anyways since no one knows her here?

    • Kingphoenix July 30, 2012

      The blogs seem to know her name very well…..

  14. FAFRELOADED July 30, 2012

    It’s nice of Nicki to lend a hand to up & coming rappers….. @ TGJ what you mean “former classmate” they didn’t go to Laguardia HS together Nicki is 8 yrs older than Banks…

    • Truth July 30, 2012

      • Truth July 30, 2012

        ‘punk’

  15. IM July 30, 2012

    i have to hear the other sides of this,nicki never say anything bad about banks and banks is fallowing nicki on twitter…it looks like nicki likes her,so like i said i hvae to hear the next side of this and don’t be surprise if there is a banks and nicki collab in the works…i have no prob with that and i am sure the barbs have no problem with that…but we all know who have a probs with that a certain set i won’t call no names though….and the reason nicki didn’t go on tour with Riri is because it was management issues with some permits,it,s not that nicki didn’t want to go she just couldn’t do anything about it.

    • Truth(will troll for that BITCG im and slay her bitchass) July 30, 2012

  16. the real xoxo July 30, 2012

    azealias mixtape was nice! im here for her album.
    nicki minaj is so 2010, ive moved on to azealia.

    • FAFRELOADED July 30, 2012

      Glad you and about 12 others have moved along to Banks.. the rest of the WORLD is still here for Queen Onika.. #BYE

      • prettigurlrockD July 30, 2012

        Naw nicki has turned white washed. Most of the black fans arn’t here for her coonery. Nicki has moved onto the pop world and is about making that bread which is good for making a living. But don’t expect to suck up to the urban fans again. She will turn into a hasbeen like lil kim.

  17. truth tea July 30, 2012

    azealia banks shows that you can be inspired by lil kim without looking like a copy and paste clone clown.

    • Queen Brit Brit July 30, 2012

      She looks and sounds like a Missy Elliot/Foxy Brown/Lil Kim hybrid.

    • Truth(will troll for that BITCG im and slay her bitchass) July 30, 2012

      believe it or not…i AGREE!!

      • FAFRELOADED July 30, 2012

        Azealia beefed with kim, though.. LOL

  18. Queen Brit Brit July 30, 2012

    LOL!!! This nappy weave wearing c*** is soo desperate for fans. She is constantly name dropping pop stars names for attention (Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Beyonce). Now she is lying about being asked to join Nicki her tour. Nicki clocked that on Twitter posting #ManTheseBitchesDelerious. Banks is a liar. Poor thing, her album will flop harder than her EP did.

    • Truth(will troll for that BITCG im and slay her bitchass) July 30, 2012

      Or harder than pfrr

    • RICHANDBEAUTIFUL(JUST LIKE RIH)143 MILLION+++ July 30, 2012

      B**** YO FAVE IS QUEEN OF NAPPY WEAVES!! BRIT IS A UGLY WHITE TRAILER TRASH WITH BODY ODOR PROBLEMS!!

      • prettigurlrockD July 30, 2012

        I bet this loser don’t look that good him/herself. That’s why it’s hiding behind her idol’s avatar. Convenient.

  19. QueenSize July 30, 2012

    If Azeilia would of joined Nicki on tour…how in the hell would they explain the opening act being better than the headliner? Nevertheless…i guess it would of been nice. lmao

    • Truth(will troll for that BITCG im and slay her bitchass) July 30, 2012

      B**** READ!!! Amen!

      • FAFRELOADED July 30, 2012

        How many top 40 hits has your leader had? I’ll wait………..

    • Kingphoenix July 30, 2012

      Lol, I didn’t even think about that s***. Thats like Beyonce opening for Rihanna. Or Gaga opening for Katy… Nicki really needs to work on her live performances because girl, it is not a good look.

      • FAFRELOADED July 30, 2012

        ^^ http://vimeo.com/45748826
        Shitted on ’em……….. When has Banks performed for Late night tv…. or on TV period?? I’ll wait…

  20. FAFRELOADED July 30, 2012

    • prettigurlrockD July 30, 2012
