Azealia Banks took to Twitter recently to discuss her frustrations with Lil Kim. A few weeks back, Azealia Banks paid homage to Lil Kim via her outfit at Coachella and stated that she and Lil Kim would be working on some music together. Now, it seems that Azealia has changed the way she feels about Lil Kim.
Via Twitter, Azealia hinted at a falling out with Lil Kim. This is what she had to say:
In response to Azealia Banks’ statements, Lil Kim’s publicist, CJ Carter, released the following statement:
Earlier today a press release went out making a claim that there was friction between Hip Hop Icon Lil Kim and aspiring hip artist azealia banks. The release comes as a surprise to our team,being that my client and azealia have NEVER spoke to one another or met AT ALL. Kim was actually very flattered azealia’s public admiration for her, which is why it’s so hard to understand how someone who claims to be a true Lil Kim fan could flip the script so easily on someone who was supposedly their idol. It is also VERY interesting that NO ONE from her team made any attempts to reach out to anyone from our team to voice any concerns or problems that they may have had. I have NEVER heard of anyone having a conflict with someone they have NEVER met with or personally spoke with. We have no idea what they are referencing and have no desire to discuss the matter any further as there is nothing to talk about. It honestly seems that someone from azealia’s team would rather have her fans buy into manufactured drama instead of buying music. Kim knows nothing of any beef, and furthermore has had nothing but nice things to say about her. We don’t know what this is and will not address this any further. It seems that this is another sad attempt by someone trying to use my client for publicity. We wish her nothing but the best.
Whew! This is too much! Again, I think Azealia Banks needs to think things over before she speaks. She has had a lot issues with other artists lately and this is all before she has even released a debut album! If she felt slighted by Lil Kim, I think the best approach would have been to address Lil Kim and her management rather than airing her frustration out to the public, especially on Twitter.
What do you think about this whole situation?
