Azealia Banks Blasts Erykah Badu On Twitter, Calls Singer ‘Old’ & ‘Jealous’ Of Her Music

Published: Saturday 14th Feb 2015 by Rashad

Another day, another Azealia Banks Twitter tussle.

Thats right, even on Valentine’s Day the ‘ATM Jam’ diva isn’t exactly dispensing the love to her fellow artists – ask Queen of Neo-Soul Erykah Badu.

Earlier today the songstress was asked if she was a fan of the outspoken rapstress.  Her response obviously didn’t sit too well with Banks, who then went on a Twitter tirade to suggest Badu was not only ‘old,’ but also ‘jealous’ of her artistry.

See her full rant and Badu’s response below:

When Azealia caught wind of the response, she took to her Twitter page to say:

That wasn’t enough though.  She sprung into a full rant:

    Azalea Really (in Wendy Williams voice ) seriously girl u are as irrelevant as Ashanti, keri Hilson and those other washer up b******, ur last Album sold like 13k copies and u wanna drag an actual Legend, girl Pls

    • Jamon February 14, 2015

      You can’t put her in the same category as Ashanti and Keri!! They had success in Music. Ashanti has 3 multiplatuim/Platium albums

    • Black power February 14, 2015

      Dont you dare compare her to miss keri!

    • Paws February 14, 2015

      Keep Ashanti name out your mouth tho ugly ijs she is far from irrelavent f***** she’s an independent artist selling more than artist on major labels so be careful when u bring up her name she’s grinding and is the Guinness book of world record and has broken records something your fav hasn’t nor ever will do. #CarryOn

    YAWNNNNNNNNNNNNN that’s all this prostitute do is argue on twitter like really she beefing with erykah badu out of all people? shame because she’s actually a talented diverse/versatile artist

  4. mzindie1 February 14, 2015

    Folks kill me when they try to insult an arist’s sales..WHERE ARE YOUR SALES? She sold more than YOU! hahha…

  5. WashupSlayer February 14, 2015

    I really wanted to chime in on Twitter but by responding to her, it just makes her think she is worthy..She is just one of those people you just have to ignore cause clearly talent alone is not getting her anywhere…so perhaps she thinks controversy and social media will..Sad thing is I wanted to give her a try but she reminds me of S***** Garbaj with blatant negativity towards others but is so quick to yell victim to her few fans..smh

    • Faf February 14, 2015

      Nicki never said victim but she DID, however, s*** on u & ur bald head fave

      • WashupSlayer February 14, 2015

        She did cry VICTIM when she stated, “if it wasn’t me she would have popped off with any other girl, she picked a fight with Eve, then she picked a fight with Foxy” end quote, but she threw her subs……S***** NEVER shitted on anyone but her toilet seat when she couldn’t feel where to sit wit her FAKE ASS!! FOH

      • WashupSlayer February 14, 2015

        Suprisingly YOU KNEW who S***** Garbaj was! Hmmmmmmmm

  6. mzindie1 February 14, 2015

    Could gaf who Erykah is that was rude and uncalled of. Just say she listened, she cool. Shade much!

    • #JACKIE (Cici da baddest) February 14, 2015

      F*** that A**. Erykah all day

    • Jhene Aiko Stan February 14, 2015

      What? A fan asked and she answered. Simple. How is being honest throwing shade? Not everyone is going to be everyone’s cup of tea. This just shows how insecure and immature Azealia is

  7. #JACKIE (Cici da baddest) February 14, 2015

    Erykah is QUEEN and legend. Azealia is a f****** flop ugly b**** who seethes on twitter all day. F*** that A** #TeamErykah

  8. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT(Go Hard or Stay Average) February 14, 2015

    But will this twitter celebrity ever release another album though? I enjoyed those Uggly drags, but overall, she’s whack. I don’t know why she thought ratchet pop/EDM tracks will elevate her to new heights when she’s so ghetto. I’m ready for a new female rapper.

  9. FutureCIARA February 14, 2015

    Ok, Somebody just OWFF that disrespectful bittch!

  10. Jhene Aiko Stan February 14, 2015

    Azealia just showed us once again how insecure and immature she is. That wasn’t even shade, a fan asked and Erykah responded. She needs to get over the fact that not all music was meant for everyone. I’m honestly tired of hearing about her.

  12. DEL BEY February 14, 2015

    Omg azealia really makes it hard for me to stan for her. smh

    • TRUTH SERUM February 14, 2015

      Good look 😉

      • DEL BEY February 15, 2015

        Thank You Truth x

  13. Sarah February 14, 2015

    Iggy tried to warn everyone of her bipolar personality. Azealia has talent, but it will always be overshadowed by p*** poor attitude. Is there anyone Azealia hasn’t ranted about?

  14. C.J. February 14, 2015

    Between the two Azealia’s, I don’t know who I can’t stand more, at this point.

    Go Erykah <3

  17. Truth February 15, 2015

    She looks so stupid fighting with erykah badu on twitter..She is becoming a bigger cry baby than iggy wtf…Worry about your music woman!

  18. DanYiel Teflon February 15, 2015

    I “Roll” Badu Baduuuuuu Badu!!..:)

  19. XYZ February 15, 2015

    Ok, thats enough. Why Is this b**** famous?

    She needs to learn a little respect herself before always coming for others. Mad that not anyone likes her Music? Too bad, she’s in the wrong business, i guess.

    I’m really tired of this disrespectful little Girl and her foul mouth. She’s still New in this business and achieved nothing except one viral video, but acts like she’s f****** aretha franklin and is a queen or something.

    One things for sure, i’m not gonna support her, simply because she’s an unlikable brat.

    Erykah’s response was good, though…

    Jealousy…my ass, of what should erykah be jealous of? She, with her 37 years of age, still looks Way better than azealia ever could…

  20. umm February 15, 2015

    This what I don’t get how tf this bitxh find out she was talking bout her when she wasn’t tagged? She so consumed with herself she search for s*** that ppl say bout her. I’m like Ms Badu I tried to like her maybe if she didn’t mumble more ppl would listen.

  21. Yoncè February 15, 2015

    She threw shade and got caught! Banks is not different than us, anybody come at her she says something, something she don’t like she says something and people get upset but there doing the same thing

  22. Ramon February 15, 2015

    I am soooo tried of A.Banks ….no one cares,

  23. trellbeylike February 15, 2015

    The real tea is ms badu turning on her location!!! Queens lmaoooo

  24. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWeave February 15, 2015

    Literally the last straw for me. What in the hell was she thinking? This just clarifies that she really doesn’t have anything to do with her time and her career really isn’t taking off, since she has time to route through twitter for mentions. BYE! insulting one of the neo soul legends that paved the way. And this b*tch had the cheek to say Ms Badu was jealous of her! LOL delusion is real folks, and I’m beginning to wonder what drugs she’s on.

  25. tits mcgee February 15, 2015

    I love her artistry, but Azealia be on some ish.

    On social issues I agree with her rants, but on this type of nonsense, not so much.

    Erykah handled this with ease..
