Teyana Taylor Has A Savage Clap Back For Azealia Banks

Teyana Taylor Has A Savage Clap Back For Azealia Banks

Oh, and she brought receipts, too!

Published May 15, 2018

Femcee star Azealia Banks found a new bone to pick with a fellow Harlem native Teyana Taylor by way of some thievery accusations.

She brought the statement to Instagram, beefing up tension with the GOOD Music singer and igniting a string of back-and-forths between Teyana and the man who Azealia deemed the original choreographer of her “FADE” music video cameo.

Anyone who really knows TT also knows that the chances of her holding her tongue against such shameful accusations is slim to none. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that she clapped back at Azealia’s allegations with the swiftness (and as soon as she laid her baby girl down to rest, she hilariously informed fans via Instagram) and with the receipts.

But the Harlem rapper isn’t the only one Teyana’s got choice words for.

  1. Azealia's obviously misinformed accusation held that Teyana stole her 'FADE' choreography from celebrity dancesmith Matthew Pasterisa
  2. But wayment, Petunia! Teyana wasn't let such loose allegations slide without letting the Ice Princess know to fact-check before flapping any gums...

    #TeyanaTaylor has time for #AzealiaBanks today!

  3. Pasterisa, who found himself at the center of it all, claimed that there was some truth to some (not all) of Azealia's allegations, however...
  4. Teyana made sure to gather his incorrect facts as well, posting a video of the two dancing to the choreography in question as a pair, and thus, proving that it was a group effort, not one man's work

    2011 👀👀👀 (video uploaded to YouTube a year later once we knew for sure it was not being used by bey) Why didn’t you respond directly to me Matt?? @bornready_matt First off, FADE was something that was VERY spontaneous! Anyone that knows how Kanye is, knows that spontaneous is his get down. Newsflash! I did “Dark Fantasy” 3 hrs before he had to turn in MBDTF, and guess what??? I was NEVER credited!!! That’s the difference, you were! But it was nonetheless still a good look & a Blessing for me, in which I recognized that, and didn’t feel so called “stolen from”. NOONE knew he was going to even put the video out! Therefore NOONE got paid!!! Not even Me!!! It was an amazing look for EVERYONE involved INCLUDING YOU!!! In which you prematurely jumped in your feelings thinking that you weren’t credited. Do I need to post screenshots of your apologies saying that you jumped to conclusions?? Do we need to open up that can of worms?? Do we need to post the screenshots of the convo between my mom/manager and your manager just yesterday?? This could have all been avoided if you would have checked your friend from the gate. And for the record, only a very small portion of our choreo that WE created that was used to present to Beyonce for “End Of Time”, but was never used because she got pregnant with Blu was even used. I was actually extending you a look, but you were being too narrow minded to even see your Blessing! WE’VE BEEN CREATING WHAT YOU CALL “our legacy” since 2005!!! Never forget! P.S. funny how you posted a video of you teaching a dance class doing this choreo, but if my memory serves me correctly, isn’t this the same time I submitted OUR video to @tytryone for consideration for Bey? 🧐 IT WAS NEVER A SECRET THIS PORTION OF THE CHOREO WAS OLD AND WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED FOR BEYONCE! IVE SAID THAT IN EVERY INTERVIEW! And GO BACK AND READ YA OWN INTERVIEWS OF U ADMITTING WE CREATED THE CHOREO TOGETHER. U WANTED CLOUT HERE U GO! Enjoy! And you was just smiling in my face at the @juniebeenails salon opening! Lol a couple of months ago.

  5. As for Azealia, let's just say she had far less tension to aim at TT after those receipts were pulled
