It appears Azealia Banks has once again been struck by one of the arrows of cupid, the ancient Roman God of love.
On Thursday (May 19), the Harlem-bred rapper kicked off a wild Twitter rant by sharing her true feelings about Kendrick Lamar’s Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers collaborator Kodak Black.
“I got a crush on Kodak Black,” she wrote.
Kodak Black recently sparked a controversy surrounding Kendrick Lamar’s choice to include him as a featured guest on his fifth studio album despite Kodak’s South Carolina sexual assault scandal that culminated with the Back For Everything rapper pleading guilty to a first-degree assault and battery charge.
Despite the negativity currently surrounding him, Banks went on to praise the Florida native’s lyrical abilities by highlighting bars from his 2017 “Roll In Peace” collaboration, which also features deceased rapper XXXTENTACION in another tweet quoting her original message.
“Judge tried to give me 8, got down on my knees like Jesus please – you don’t even believe in Jesus, why you got a Jesus piece?” Is an excellent display of literary profanity and profundity in the art form,” she wrote.
This isn’t the first time that Azealia Banks has publicly professed her interest in another prominent rapper. Last year she expressed her desire to have a child with Kanye West because she believed their baby “would make the art world stop” and somehow serve as payback from the universe for each of them previously shit-talking JAY-Z.
Azealia Banks’ crush-driven high didn’t last for long, though, as she quickly pivoted and began firing off tweets criticizing Megan Thee Stallion and the aforementioned Roc Nation CEO following Meg’s odd encounter with European model Cara Delevingne at the Billboard Music Awards on May 15.
“Cara is not your fashion bitch sis,” she wrote. “Jay-Z’s female artist marketing tactics are so fucking played out. Drum up some domestic violence lie, garner public sympathy, strip the artist of her confidence, isolate them and use them as vehicles for whatever white think tank agenda ala mode It’s actually fucking pitiful.”
She continued referencing Meg and Tory Lanez’ ongoing shooting case. “Cara never had to lie about being shot and conflate the very real death of Breonna Taylor into an agenda to garner sympathy during an election year.” “That SNL performance with the glass bullet holes was tasteless, careless and opportunistic. Bad acting on the gayle clips.”
