Azealia Banks Is Bored With the Music Industry and Would Rather Pick a Fight

She starts by saying RiRi isn’t “as fly” as Beyonce.

Poor Azelalia Banks is bored.

In the beginning of a now-deleted rant on Twitter, Banks got in a quick jab about Rihanna’s new visuals for her chart-topping single “Work,” saying that the video reminds her of Beyonce’s 2002’s hit "Baby Boy," but "not as fly." 

Her comments saying that RiRi came up short in comparison to Queen Bey then sparked a series of tweets calling out the music industry’s mediocrity.

"Me watching the mediocrity that is the music industry 2016," she tweeted, in addition to posting a photo of a woman looking unimpressed while smoking and wearing hair curlers. 

"Music is honestly so f***ing trash and boring," the rapper continued. "Let’s start a f***ing beef and make s**t interesting."

"Bring out the real artists!!!!!" she concluded.

Banks has famously started beef with the likes of Iggy Azalea, Lady GagaEminem and Nicki Minaj, but it doesn’t look like her latest target is interested in clapping back.

Rihanna has yet to respond to Banks throwing shade, perhaps because she’s been too busy celebrating the success of her 14th No. 1 single and out partying with Drake until 5 a.m. in London. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
