Azealia Banks Blasts Rita Ora in Twitter Rant

Bank’s latest tantrum is filled with personal shots at the pop starlet.

Published March 11, 2013

Get low! Azealia Banks is firing off shots on Twitter once again (what’s new?) and this time she’s got Rita Ora in her crosshairs. The Harlem MC has recently been on tour with the Roc Nation pop singer, but it appears things are not very harmonious between the two. Banks took to Twitter this weekend to slam Ora for "thirsty" diva-like behavior.

"She’s been TRYING IT on this tour man," Banks tweeted. "Ever since I arrived on this tour Rita’s been going out of her way to try and intimidate me."

Never one to back down from any kind of perceived bullying tactics, Banks went on the attack against Ora.

"She’s mad she's Rihanna's understudy," Banks wrote. "Lol Rita is so thirsty. She climbed over the wall of my dancer's dressing room to snap photos."

Banks even released a screen grab of a threatening message from Ora.

"At the end of the day I don’t know who the f--k you think you are, secondly u don’t know me I’ve done nothing but try to be nice to you, thirdly your dancers were talking to me, further more I’ll see you’re a-- at the motherf--king concert," read the alleged text from Ora.

This latest rant comes just a week after Banks aimed her ire at an unnamed female artist. The "212" rapper said then that she believed she had become a target of attacks from other female MCs.

"LOL I feel like every label with a new female rapper says start drama with Azealia Banks,” Banks tweeted. "Like these b-----s know they have no wins otherwise.... So they try and antagonize me. LMFAOOO."

Rita Ora has yet to respond to Banks, but you can rest assured that this is not the last we’ll hear of this.
