MUSIC FAB: Azealia Banks' Drops "Yung Rapunxel" Single, BEEFS With Rita Ora & Calls Her "Rihanna's UNDERSTUDY"

Azealia Banks has finally released the first official single off her upcoming Broke With Expensive Taste studio album.  Listen to "Yung Rapunzel" inside and see Azealia's twitter beef with Rita Ora, whom she just called "Rihanna's understudy."


It's been a long time coming but Azealia Banks' debut studio album may actually see the light off day.  One good sign that the album is coming is its first official single, "Yung Rapunxel."  

It remains to be seen if this song, produced by Lil' Internet, will become a worldwide smash like "212" but it does keep in line with the Azealia Banks mantra of fiercely aggressive lyrics and a pulsating club beat.  And don't bother trying to compare Azealia to any other femcee in the game because this ain't old school.  It's hip hop from the future.

Listen to "Yung Rapunxel" here:


And in more A.B. Twitter beefs.....

Much like Chris Brown, we're beginning to think that Azealia should be banned from Twitter.  Now...she's beefing with the British bands she's currently touring with.  First, she went off on Stone Roses and accused them of trying to ruin her stage show. When some of the band's crew members began doing a soundcheck during her set at Australia's Future Music Festival on Friday.  Azealia accused them of working with her former manager (the one she fired), whom she said, "made a pact with the stone roses [to] sabotage my set because I fired him".

She continued,

"Wow! I must really fucking be a superstar. You've got an established band trying to sabotage my lil rap bitch shine … A bunch of old white men trying to bully a young black girl … Fuck those old saggy white niggas stone roses. I wish them nothing but excrement and death."

After her post, Azealia says she nearly got into a fist fight with Ian Brown, a member of Stone Roses (and it turned her on!)....

Sidebar:  You'll recall that Azealia accused her former manager of putting his hands on her, and now she's making subtle comments on Twitter that suggest she likes "aggressive arguments."  This won't help her case....

From there, she really jumed all over Rita Ora with a series of nasty comments.  First she called Rita "thirsty" and "Rihanna's understudy."

Then.....she accused her of "intimidation."

Then Rita responded in a text to Azealia, which Azealia posted for some reason.....

Azealia responded "Shut up Rita Oral"


We admit that sometimes Azealia does seem justified in some of her rants.  Her beef with the producer of the "Harlem Shake" caused a stir, and now the producer seems to be involved in his own legal mess behind his use of unauthorized samples. A few weeks ago,  he made her pull her version of "Harlem Shake" off Soundcloud, saying it was unauthorized.

We hope A.B. will step away form the computer and get this album done.  But with tweets like this....

It seems like Azealia LOVES the drama.

She's sort of talented, but

She's sort of talented, but clearly still young in the head. I don't see how pouring negative energy into allegedly negative people is going to result in anything but negativity lol. She's clearly not well. Why is it always the thirstiest thirsties calling someone else thirsty and trying to stir up any kind of press with the imaginary beefs? #urnot50centboo #actlikeamuffuccinlady

Okay so #1-that first pic of her scared the SHIZNIT out of me! #2-enough with the twitter-wars. Why choose high-profile careers if every lil thing someone says or does rattles you? Let your talent speak for you. Damn--do these artists have ANY managers or pr people???

Azelia, Kim Porter and Kenya.

Azelia, Kim Porter and Kenya. 3 chocolate ladies in a row!! They may all be their own special brand of crazy but they are beautiful and they are taking over the ybf headlines today. wow.

AB = Foxy Brown, her claim to

AB = Foxy Brown, her claim to fame is acting like a animal and beefing. As for Rita Ora, she is way more talented than Rihanna and has her style way before Rihanna bit it. People are just too lazy to do some research.

We the people are not hearing

We the people are not hearing or seeing the artist's talent because all her beefing is in the forefront. Azealia needs to get out of her own way AKA shut the fuck up.....and lets hear the music.

Eve was right when she said

Eve was right when she said AB was too much drama. We dont get a chance to know her or respect her because her headlines are always about nonsense. BUT Rita is a bootleg Rihanna....gotta agree with her on that. maybe she shouldnt have posted it but it is true.

I can't stand this bitch.

I can't stand this bitch. What the hell did i just try to listen to? She's wishing death on people. That's not cool. I don't believe for a minute that Rita Ora was trying to intimidate. if anything it seems as though she's intimidated by rita.

This UGLY looking girl will

This UGLY looking girl will do and say ANYTHING to get A BUZZ around her. The Rita Ora thang was a FAIL but at least Rita made it in the UK, this chick has to start shit w/ people to even be THOUGHT of! This chick needs to go have a LONG SOAK IN THE TUB w/ her dirty boy from Charlie Brown self! Sit all the WAY DOWN and have several GALLONS OF WATER FOR HER THIRST!
