Updated: Azealia Banks Explains ‘Control It’ Controversy On Twitter / Spars With Shystie On Twitter

Published: Thursday 7th Mar 2013 by David

Last year, they were as thick as thieves. This year, they find themselves in the middle of a heated controversy with either citing the other as the cause.

We’re talking about ‘Murderation’ Rapper Shystie and ‘1991′ MC Azealia Banks of course, whose friendship reportedly turned sour when the video they shot for Shystie‘s single ‘Control It‘ was pulled from Banks’ label Interscope, seemingly damaging the campaign the Rapper had in place to endorse her forthcoming EP.

Now, in response to the drama, the Brit belle took to Twitter to confront Azealia, which resulted in the latter hitting back at both she and her manager.

Full story below…

One hour ago, Shystie sent the following to Azealia’s personal Twitter account, after thanking fans for supporting her during the drama:

Within minutes, Azealia took to the network to respond- blaming her one time collaborator and her ‘big shot’ manager for the mess, with:

While we think it’s insulting-and a little sexist- to hope and assume all female Rappers are meant to get along by default, it’s a shame that these two have seen their creative partnership turned to…well this.

Of course, if Camp Shystie did unveil the video with full consent from Interscope, it’s easy to understand why the label took such swift action in having it pulled, if they felt it interfered with Azealia’s brand and the campaign she is currently readying for her debut album.

In saying that-if  this really is the  case- one has to wonder why Banks agreed to collaborate in the first place.


In response to the ‘212’ Rapper’s remarks, the last hour saw Shystie add the following:

…to which Azealia responsed:

  4. Mother Mariah March 7, 2013

  5. muffinbum March 7, 2013

    you mean like when baauer asked her not to release her harlem shake remix cause he was gonna release it to itunes, then she went ahead and did it anyway? …..ya, that.

  6. DSTROCK March 7, 2013

    Yeah I wouldn’t even call this a fight, much less beef. Az Banks didn’t say anything negative about Shystie. In fact she practically complimented her by saying she had better songs than ‘Control It’. *shrugs*

    Still don’t understand how this interfered with her album campaign…

    Azealia has talent but she needs to focus on making better music and NOT burning bridges before they’re even built.

    As for Shystie – I sincerely CANNOT. I suggest she goes searching for a nice, comfortable, leather or suede, sofa, purchases it and has an ETERNAL SEAT for the sake of her wig.


    • Monstarebel March 7, 2013

    Lil Kim
    Nicki Minaj
    Iggy Azalea
    Angel Haze

    How are you supposed to have a rap career when every person you interact with ends up hating your guts? Folks usually only get this many enemies after years in the game, not months. Won’t even touch the male rappers that sparred with her.

  10. Slayty Perry March 7, 2013

    Hmmm. Azealia shows love for another female rapper who she considered her friend and then ends up beefing with them. Didn’t this just happen with my girl Angel Haze. History does repeat itself. Azealia is too much of a hateful b****. She’ll never make it in the U.S and her future in the U.K isn’t bright after she just dissed on of their top new female rappers. I predict she’ll do less than 20k 1st week sales

  11. dEE March 7, 2013

    Azelia Banks is such a low blowing b****!!!! She has some major artist for a minor a$$ artist!

    • dEE March 7, 2013

Plus interscope hires everyone I call it “Everyone’s label” I’m tired of her and her cockiness she is gonna fall and fall HARD! Always poking fun at people look and the b**** aint got no edges Have you seen her inperson her ass does not look like she does in the videos not that she is amazing looking but still I rooted for her BUT this is coming ridiculous

  15. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 8, 2013

    Twitter WILL be the fall of all ignorant musicians. Azealia, you have some serious issues. The lack of maturity at your age is pathetic. You a b*tch for real. You fought with 85% of the industry and you haven’t even put out that flop album yet! (and y’all know it’ll flop). Girl put out that album, let people bootleg the sh*t out of it and go the f*ck back to that roach invested home of yours, forever. I use to like this b*tch too but I’ll never support arrogance, especially a b*tch like Azealia, gremlin looking a*s b*tch.

  16. tits mcgee March 8, 2013

    i don’t get why azelia insists on being a twitter thug. she started with such promise. she has talent but that won’t matter because she is foolish..

  17. Lea March 8, 2013

    Your girl called her ” charcoal skinned b****”!! So that’s really not the case! Angel backstabbed her…

  18. you from f****** where? who r u? March 11, 2013

    uhhh girl…..i like 3 of her songs but she really is a hateful little b****…..but what do you expect when someone fabricates stories about their own mother
