Azealia Banks Disses Angel Haze, Perez Hilton
Diss tracks and beefs have long been part of hip-hop, and Azealia Banks continues that tradition with two recent news items. One is an ongoing beef with female R&B performer Angel Haze. After Haze put out her own diss track directed toward Banks on January 3, called “On the Edge,” Banks responded the next day with a response as her own, in the form of a track called “No Problems.”
Banks, in writing about “No Problems” on Twitter, claims that the track is no longer a diss, stating: “Lol I def used that energy to write a fly new jam tho. It's not even really a diss anymore! Haha !!!”
Banks, in further statements, went onto claim that “On the Edge,” supposedly written in 20 minutes by Haze, took longer to create. Producer Diplo, contacted by Banks, apparently stated Haze took months to write it.
Haze, to Banks’ Twitter statements, responded with: “b*tch sounds like holiday heart rapping. strong ass vingh rhames faced b*tch...”
Later on January 4, just hours after “No Problems” dropped, Haze, sampling 2Pac, responded with another diss track, called “Shut the F—k Up.”

Aside from a musical beef, Banks responded to Perez Hilton, calling him a homophobic slur. Ironically, Hilton had been writing about the rapper’s beef with Haze and her refusal to work with Rihanna.
This past year, the rapper who refers to herself as Yung Rapunxel, has been working on a full-length debut album after the success of 212 and additionally collaborated with MAC Cosmetics on a new, limited edition lipstick.
