Azealia Banks returned to usual form over the weekend, when she took to social media and sparked a new feud with Remy Ma.
On Saturday (Dec. 9), Banks shared a quote from a recent Remy interview, in which she said: “When I came home it was nothing. It was tumbleweeds blowing through as far as female artists in rap is concerned.”
From there, she went on a lengthy rant (since edited) and took a few swipes and Remy. “Remy — the hottest things you’ve release since you’ve been out of jail are nicki Minaj love letters and she’s STILL mile more important than you,” Banks wrote on the original caption. “Your obsession with nicki Minaj is VERY UNHEALTHY. YOU ARE NOT IMPORTANT TO FEMALE RAP IM NOT SURE WHO LIED TO YOU AND TOLD YOU. You are a confused nicki Minaj Stan at best these days. You are an auntie. You do not count in the real female rap conversation anymore. You are a reality tv star.”

Ahem…. let me rephrase … Remy … you absolutely must step your shit up. The music you have been releasing is some serious old head rap shit and it's 100% unfair that you stand up on your reality tv booster seat and make any statements about female rap as if you have done a single thing to move the cultural needle since you've been home. It is not 2000… battle rapping is dead. Gun clapping is not chic .. you are struggling to keep up with the rest of female rap and it's time you seriously leave the nicki minaj subs and disses at home. No more auntie antics in 2018… for arts' sake……
The edited version reads: “Remy … you absolutely must step your shit up.

Remy Ma caught wind of Banks’ original post and posted several alleged text messages from Banks on Instagram, where she appears to express her interest in being on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop, her depression, and money problems. “Dealing with so much depression lately,” she wrote in a text to Remy. “I feel so trapped and like I can’t get ahead… I haven’t been booked for anything in a long long time. And don’t have money for my bills or the studio or anything. And it’s just hard getting back in the game.”
Elsewhere in the texts, Banks also dissed Nicki, writing: “When you get a SECOND Grammy before she’s even gotten her first she will know what time it is.” Remy’s caption included a reference to Nas’ “Ether.” “Ayo, I know you ain’t talkin about me, dog. You? What?! You been on my dick; you love my style,” she wrote. “Ps: I know you don’t want no smoke so I’ll play ya lil social media games until I allow my team to convince me to stop.”
Remy Ma later followed with another series of texts after seeing Banks change her caption. It got even worse, with Banks expressing hopes for labiaplasty with explicit photos and more on Nicki. “No one cares about her since she f*cked meek mill,” Banks wrote in one of the alleged texts. “She has to get the scent of dirty philly d*ck off of her before I even care.”
Remy went on to reveal that she has even more texts from Banks messages dating as far back as last year. “I’m officially airing out ALL y’all chicks that was on MY line heavy when I touched down & now all of a sudden got amnesia,” she wrote. “Operation NEVER taking my foot off they neck has commenced…(& normally I’m against exposing private sh*t when things go left but y’all broads crazyyy).”
Despite Remy airing her out, Banks went on the attack, throwing more shots at Remy on IG stories, which you can view below. DAMN!
And then, Remy replied as well.
