After revealing that she had set the next few months aside rebuild her brand, Azealia Banks was surprised to learn that she had been dissed in Nicki Minaj’s brand new ‘Empire’ game application.
In response, the entertainer penned an open letter to the ‘Shanghai’ lyricist which criticised her for what she believed was an unprovoked low-blow.
Little did she know that said letter, which compared Minaj’s material to McDonalds, would “encourage” the rapper’s fans to hunt for material to counter with.
What they discovered?
A video they say proves Banks’ critically-lauded material, which is often praised for its concepts and originality, is anything but original.

As fans of Banks’ music away from the brand, we can’t say that the clip above proves much.
The rapper, whose skills as a live act see her swim miles ahead of her more agreeable competitors, has made no secret of the fact that her work is often built with help from artists she believes in.
She shared in 2016:
I like writing with men just to…when they come up with things for you to say it’s just so bizarre. You know, it’s like a man’s interpretation of what this strong black female wants to feel like.
Hit the 6 minute mark…
Her new album ‘Business & Pleasure‘ is yet to receive a release date and is expected to drop after the release of her next EP ‘Fantasea II: The Second Wave.’
Its predecessor ‘Fantasea’ was mocked in Minaj’s game.
Minaj is yet to respond to Azealia or shed light on why she seems to have inspired a character in the project.
What the ‘Atlantis’ performer had to say about the lengths Minaj’s fans seem to have gone to to bash her?
