AceShowbiz - Azealia Banks reignites her one-sided beef with Beyonce Knowles. The controversial femcee took to her Instagram account to share that she wouldn't hesitate to sue the Grammy-winning pop star and her daughter Blue Ivy if she does one thing.
On Monday, July 24, Azealia caught wind of a fan suggesting in a comment, "Beyonce should've sampled you on renaissance." However, the "Anna Wintour" hitmaker apparently wasn't happy with the idea as she replied, "she knew better."
Further elaborating in a follow-up reply, Azealia noted that she would take a legal move if the "Lemonade" singer ever sampled her music. "because I would have sued her, Sony, columbia, parkwood, tidal AND blue ivy. I would have sued the fake basquiat dreads right off [Jay-Z]'s head. I'm not the one," she stressed.
This isn't the first time for Azealia to put Beyonce on blast. Back in June, the Harlem star claimed that Queen Bey is trying to erase her contributions to house music after releasing her single "Break My Soul".
She first shared a quote from an anonymous source in a Metro U.K. article that said of Beyonce, "She loves the fact that so many Black writers and DJs are thriving in the dance scene over there and was paying attention to songs by people like MistaJam, David Asante, MNEK, Kamille and early Azealia Banks when brainstorming."
Azealia then added, "You're 'brainstorming' with six people to my early records." She continued, "Which are miles beyond whatever flaccid and insecure attempt you just made to try for an attention grab during pride month? When you don't give a damn about the gays any other time of the year?"
Not stopping there, the "Icy Colors Change" artist posted an audio of her going on a rant against Beyonce, whom she believed "has been trying to write me out of my own narrative for, like, years at this point." She went on to say, " Like, this is so f**king weird. So, early Azealia Banks records. So, what are you trying to do? Are you trying to encapsulate my music in time and say and say like, you know, it's vintage or something, as if my last three releases have not whooped your a**. Are you kidding? As if I'm not showing major versatility and all of that. You want me to not be Yemaya so f**king badly. You want it to be [Solange Knowles]. You want it to be Chloe Bailey, '[The Little Mermaid (2023)]' movie, and you don't include Azealia Banks. Like, oh my f**king God. You're a joke."
She continued, "You're so sneaky. You're trying to erase my contributions to house music, dance music, electronic music and all that and make it as if I'm...God knows who. Just encapsulate me in time. You're a f**king creep. You're a f**king creep, Beyonce...And you watch everything I do."
Recently, Azealia also went after Nicki Minaj over her "trash" collaborations. "Ugh Nicki PLEASE stop doing these trash collabs. Ice spice highkey ate you in your own space. The original of Princess Diana is better too. Desperation and defeat is not a good look on you," the "212" hitmaker wrote. "Please realize that the game being played against you is bigger than whatever flavor of the moment Girl hits the scene. Please stop trying to out hoodrat these new girls and get back to boxing these white pop stars out (sic)."
