Azealia Banks calls Miley Cyrus ‘whack as fuck’

Rapper also says both Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj are 'basic' in Twitter posts

Azealia Banks has described Miley Cyrus’s music as “whack as fuck” and also labelled both Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj as “basic” in a series of Twitter posts.

The rapper published a string of messages on the social media site earlier today (September 2). “Miley Cyrus HAS to know her shit is whack as fuck,” she wrote. “It has to be a joke… Isn’t she making fun of herself? Yes? No?” She then went on to publish several more posts on the site in which she namechecked both Minaj and Swift. See them below.

When several Twitter users asked her whether she had once been a fan of Minaj, meanwhile, Banks replied: “She’s great. Incredible even, I’m just…. Better.”

Nicki Minaj called Miley Cyrus a “bitch” at last weekend’s MTV VMAs. Miley Cyrus, who hosted the ceremony, had previously spoken to the New York Times about Minaj’s recent beef with Taylor Swift, saying that it was “not very polite” of Minaj. Cyrus was quoted as saying, “What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite.”

When Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ won Best Hip-Hop video gong, she said: “And now, back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?” Cyrus proceeded to suggest that her remarks had been taken out of context, but Minaj seemed to reject Cyrus’ excuses.

Earlier this month, meanwhile, Azealia Banks claimed she had been prohibited from releasing music until March 2016 due to a contract dispute with her label. Her debut record, ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’, was famously delayed for over three years, before finally getting a release in November of last year.
