Azealia Banks is at it again. After beefing with Cardi B and RZA, and apologizing to Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim, the New York rhymer has sparked a new feud with Remy Ma.
On Saturday (Dec. 9), Banks shared a quote from a recent Remy interview, in which the “All the Way Up” rapper said: “When I came home it was nothing. It was tumbleweeds blowing through as far as female artists in rap is concerned.”
Taking issue with this, Banks went on a lengthy Instagram caption, which has since been edited. The original note included slights like, “Remy — the hottest things you’ve release since you’ve been out jail are nicki Minaj love letters and she’s STILL mile more important than you.” She added: “Your obsession with nicki Minaj is VERY UNHEALTHY. YOU ARE NOT IMPORTANT TO FEMALE RAP IM NOT SURE WHO LIED TO YOU AND TOLD YOU. You are a confused nicki Minaj Stan at best these days. You are an auntie. You do not count in the real female rap conversation anymore. You are a reality tv star.”
Banks edited her post shortly afterwards. It now reads: “Remy … you absolutely must step your shit up. The music you have been releasing is some serious old head rap shit and it’s 100% unfair that you stand up on your reality tv booster seat and make any statements about female rap as if you have done a single thing to move the cultural needle since you’ve been home. It is not 2000… battle rapping is dead. Gun clapping is not chic .. you are struggling to keep up with the rest female rap and it’s time you seriously leave the nicki minaj subs and disses at home. No more auntie antics in 2018… for arts’ sake.”
But Reminisce caught wind the initial post and went to town, posting several alleged text messages from Banks on Instagram. These included Banks talking about her interest in being on “Love & Hip Hop,” her depression, and her money problems. “Dealing with so much depression lately,” she wrote in a text to Remy. “I feel so trapped and like I can’t get ahead…I haven’t been booked for anything in a long long time. And don’t have money for my bills or the studio or anything. And it’s just hard getting back in the game.”
Banks also slighted Nicki several times, writing messages like, “When you get a SECOND Grammy before she’s even gotten her first she will know what time it is.” Remy’s caption included a reference to Nas’ “Ether.” “Ayo, I know you ain’t talkin about me, dog. You? What?! You been on my dick; you love my style,” she wrote. “Ps: I know you don’t want no smoke so I’ll play ya lil social media games until I allow my team to convince me to stop.”
After seeing Azealia’s caption change, Remy added another series alleged text messages from Banks. These included Azealia’s hopes for labiaplasty with explicit photos and additional thoughts on Nicki. “No one cares about her since she fucked meek mill,” Banks wrote in one the alleged texts. “She has to get the scent dirty philly dick f her before I even care.”
Remy said that she has more Banks messages dating as far back as last year. “I’m ficially airing out ALL y’all chicks that was on MY line heavy when I touched down & now all a sudden got amnesia,” she wrote. “Operation NEVER taking my foot f they neck has commenced…(& normally I’m against exposing private sh*t when things go left but y’all broads crazyyy).”
