Another day, another Azealia Banks beef with any given Hollywood industry mate of hers.
But her gripe with RZA, a member of hip-hop’s iconic Wu-Tang Clan, has lingered for about a year now after a messy 2016 incident at a private Hollywood party. And despite their recent film collaboration together, the Ice Princess is spewing some cold words at the famed movie director and music producer.
Captured by gossip site Baller Alert, Azealia took her scathing message for RZA to her Snapchat. She demanded that he keep her name from out of his mouth in the media unless it’s joined by an apology she believes is rightfully owed.
“UNTIL HE IS READY TO APOLOGIZE [TO ME] PUBLICLY, HE CAN GO BACK TO SUCKING RUSSELL CROWE’S D**K FOR INVITES TO HOLLYWOOD PARTIES,” she wrote, according to a screenshot from Baller Alert.
The apology Azealia feels is in order stems from the October 2016 run-in she had with film star Russell Crowe at his exclusive hotel suite party. Azealia showed up as RZA’s guest for the festivities, and when things went left (resulting in her being booted out of the party) the Wu-Tang Clan emcee released a statement scolding her “erratic” behavior. The most shocking of “The Big Big Beat” femcee’s accusations held that Crowe choked her out and called her the N-word in the process of ejecting her from his party, all of which RZA also said he never witnessed happening.
“Nobody understands how badly I wanted to die the moment rza LIED and told the world I deserved to be spat,” she continued in her message. “People laughed at me and said I lied. No one understands the amount of paint that came with and after that incident.”
After reinforcing once again that, above all, she wanted respect from RZA instead of references to her name in interviews, she spat a scathing message to him.
“@RZA I HOPE YOU DROP DEAD.”
Yikes. Let’s hope for a peaceful resolve between the two sooner than later, and especially amid their Love Beats Rhymes movie joint effort together.
