Azealia Banks ‘Attacks’ Pharrell Williams In New Twitter Rant: ‘He Had A Lite Skin Comeback’

Published: Tuesday 12th Nov 2013 by David

As anyone familiar with her gift may agree, Azealia Banks is only one carefully executed album away from claiming the critical and commercial glory her talent deserves.

Alas, by way of a mouth that runs quicker than Precious post ‘Fried Chicken‘- gate, the Harlem belle finds her brand tarnished by Twitter rants that have done quite the number on her career.

Her latest beef? With Pharrell Williams, whom she blames for the failure of their collaborative single ‘ATM Jam’, claiming his decision to ‘ignore’ the single after enjoying success via Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines’ and the record breaker that was ‘Get Lucky.’

Her take on the matter below…

    Asszealia bitter banks makes it hard for anyone to want to be on her side… Plus she stays burn bridges she has to be the dumbest new artist to ever step foot into the industry.

    This is gonna sound crazy but that song mainly flopped because the chorus was too long, it was a 16 bar chorus when it should have just been an 8 bar because the phrase is repeated, that made it come across as very repetative and boring, there is no record label or industry person who would not have noticed that so the decision to keep it that way must have been Pharrells otherwise the track would have been edited so it sounds more compact, if it’s true that he then neglected the track then his off key! In Azealia’s defence during Madonna’s Hard Candy era, she also said that Pharrell was a Diva and had a bigger ego than her.

    but she put out a lp and it didn’t do well,so i wonder who she is blaming for that,you can’t do sh!t like that man if a song are album do well you take all the cred for it,but if it crash you blaim others,thats f-ckup what banks is doing sh1t like that will turn people away from her.

    yeah, I liked her EP, I was trying to put her out there all I knew, BUT things like this (Gaga, now Pharell), yeah she making me NOT like her, nor want to support her anymore…

    • TruthSpeaker November 12, 2013

      Same here… I LOVED THAT EP and was practically selling it to all of my people but its apparent that her EP is now the height of whatever career she was trying to have….

    It flopped because it was BORING! Get over it b****

    This h** has no one to blame but herself. When you beef with everyone and establish yourself as an immature and arrogant c*nt no one will want to associate with you. If I was Pharrell I would have made sure that song would’ve never seen the light of day. Not only is it trash but I wouldn’t want to be connected to this flop mess. I love how she’s blaming him though like its his fault it flopped. If it did happen to catch on it would’ve been because of him.

    Meanwhile Iggy just got done opening for Queen Beyonce in Australia and presenting at the EMAS and performing with Robin Thicke where she was nominated for 2 awards. Change Your Life is also gaining in audience and spins on rhythmic radio. Bankrupt must be seething now as her career continues to burn slowly.

    • Molly November 12, 2013

      Sweetie stfu Iggy aint made no type of Mark either ive yet to see Iggy have a US top 20 hit .

      • IGGY GODZALEA November 12, 2013

        She ain’t a US based artist though. Her main label is in the UK where all of her singles have been top 20. Where is Ci-error and all her promo? Not even Rihanna could revive her career with a staged beef 🙁

  8. RG2 November 12, 2013

    All her bridges burned down a LOOOONNNNGG time ago. Too many feuds with well known people will likely cause you to be rejected in this industry

  9. smh November 12, 2013

    She really had the potential to be the one to give Onigga a run for her money. Now that b**** gon be guranteed without competition for like another 5yrs. What a damn shame.

    • FAF November 12, 2013

      WHy do y’all keep saying Onigga like its a diss? 😆 Azealia tries to be “Black queen darkskin power” so if you stan for her, seems you’d tread lightly on the race jokes 😆

  10. Sha The Art Of DRAGGINGGGGGG November 12, 2013

    LOL this girl is soooo 2012 at first I liked her music then after hearing the SAME FLOW for twenty million times on edm beats I got bored…. like seriously switch it up!

  11. pon_De November 12, 2013

    Is there any actual person on the planet checking for this bitter bird??? Why are the ratchet and distressed always the most surprised to learn that folks ain’t got time for struggle attitude and hissy fits. *kanye shrug*

  12. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 12, 2013

    Does she have any bridges left? She seems content on her island of delusions. What is wrong with her?

    • TruthSpeaker November 12, 2013

      I would say that she needs a manager & a publicist but that would have been more appropriate at the start of the year.. Now; its just too late. She won’t EVER be the HIT she dreamed of and had the potential of being until she makes amends with herself & those she has already hurt.

  13. Tallb November 12, 2013

    i don’t know but i love her! hahaha she’s not scared to say what she thinks.

  14. TruthSpeaker November 12, 2013

    No b****, ATM Jam did poorly because it was worse than explosive diarrhea… This b**** really needs to-and i mean REALLY- calm the f*** down with this poor ass attitude she has before she scares away any fans who are still waiting for her ass to blow up. Its not going to happen for this dumb ass; just wont. Its sad too; I was actually stanning hard for her ass from the get go but this anger issue she has is just way too much for me to bother with. Its like having an ego bigger than Kanye only, WITHOUT THE F****** CAREER TO BACK IT UP! Talent only takes you to the doors of opportunity b****; you just couldnt control your mouth and now all of those doors (and windows…) are not only SHUT BUT BOARDED UP LIKE SOME CRACK HOUSE IN THE HOOD….

    • TruthSpeaker November 12, 2013

      You know; the last time a female mc’s ego overgrew her talent was Kia…. see where her ass is now? dropping mediocre rhymes over iphone created beats and STILL BLAMING JANET… f****** bitter b****** need to relax and focus on the art before the career!!!

  15. Tisha November 12, 2013

    You can’t get anywhere in life hating everybody Azealia.

    Light skin folks, gays, blacks, women, men. Who’s left that you don’t insult to actually but any of your work? That don’t give a f*** attitude will take you right back to where you started with nothing of substance to show for it.

    When a song does well you promote it, when a song doesn’t you make the choice to keep beating the dead horse or move on. You expected him to cling to your flop song while TWO of his songs had been getting massive radio-play? Delusional.

  16. L/O/V/E November 12, 2013

    I don’t think she’s in any position to “restructure the music industry” since she’s a mega flop. I personally really like a few of her tunes, videos and performances – but she needs to. Just. Stop. Talking.

  17. Gio88 November 12, 2013

    In the maintime iggy was slaying the ema’s with robin thicke …oopsss

  18. Mwah November 12, 2013

    Shes mad and bitter. Even Iggy got her ass a spot on Beyonce Tours.

  19. A November 12, 2013

    Whatever happened to her album Broke With Bitter Taste… At least that’s what she should now name it. This is the only way she can keep herself in the media as her singles that she’s putting out these days aren’t climbing into the top 100 let alone the top 40. Just Pharell’s name alone should have been enough to give her some success on the single but clearly no one gives a s*** about her since she left everyone hanging after 212. She had potential with her FANTASEA mixtape, but now she’s nothing but a sour little girl.

  20. EveRyder November 12, 2013

    Smdh at her just f***** it up for herself…….she had a lot of ppl rooting for her now she want even be the next big female rap star bcuz of that mouth of hers writing check she can’t cash. She was a hit and miss with me anyway bcuz I just couldn’t get into a lot of her music. She burned so many bridges with a lot of ppl with the beefs and fueds. I do gotta be honest tho and y’all can say what y’all want,pharell did give her a s***** deal on that song. It sounded repetitive and unfinished. He did managed to show up to the video sets to make cameos in all the other artists videos he has worked with like robin thicke,daft punk were his big money makers. He also showed up for nelly and 2chains songs which charted and some others why not do the same for her. I still like pharell tho and he s***.

    Is it always about Race ?

    The Song Flopped Because It Sucked. DEAL.

  22. Touché November 12, 2013

    I don’t know what made her such an angry person but she needs to talk to someone.

  25. FutureCIARA November 12, 2013

    Girl……. i’m over her

    Her fading away is taking far too long!

  26. Dreamlover November 12, 2013

    She has so much potential. She’s stunning, talented, and a refreshing change of pace from the current pop/r&b/hip hop soundscape out there right now. It’s so frustrating watching herself shoot herself in the foot. If she got her sh*t together she could really be an industry force to be reckoned with. Now no one wants to be involved with her because she has LITERALLY thrown everyone she has worked with under the bus (from Disclosure to Pharrell to Lady Gaga). She really is getting on my nerves. She’s running out of chances. For real. Get your act together girl.
