The rapper is now back at work on her music, having revealed last month that she had temporarily “cancelled” new album ‘Fantasea II: The Second Wave‘. She’d also said that she was looking forward to Grimes appearing on the record.
“Omg I’m listening to f2!!!” she previously Tweeted. “All the songs are finished except lorelei and grimes song. I have a session next week with Alex Carapetis to lock lorelei down. Then I go to LA to finish grimes and oh yes!! Finish Paradiso two! But daaaaaaaamn there’s some heat!”
Now, it looks as if they’ve hit somewhat of a stumbling block as Banks appears to be growing frustrated over waiting for the collaboration in the house of Grimes’ partner Elon Musk.
“Literally been sitting at Elon Musk’s house alone for days waiting for Grimes to show up and start these sessions,” Azealia Banks wrote on her Instagram story today. “I have no idea when she is coming back. I’m going to wait one more day then I’m going to go home.”
She later added: “Staying at Elon Musk’s house has been like a real life episode of ‘Get Out’.”
Banks later fired a string of insults (some of which have been deleted) at the couple via her Instagram.
As The Fader reports, she called Grimes a “dirty-sneaker-inbred-out of the woods” and labelled Musk a “trash ass beta male” with “pork skin”.
But Gizmodo revealed later on Monday (August 13) that Musk has denied any involvement with Banks.
He told the outlet via direct Twitter messages that he “has never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way.”
NME has contacted Grimes for a response.
Meanwhile, Grimes has also been collaboration with Youtube sensation Poppy on her upcoming album.
Speaking to NME, Poppy revealed that one song is about ‘destruction’ and another is about ‘power’.
“She followed me on Twitter, then I sent her a message and said ‘hi, I like you,” said Poppy. “We should make a song together’. Then we made a couple of songs together actually. She’s really talented.”
“It’s really great that she’s one of few female producers that is actively doing it right now. It’s very respectable. She’s really good with synthesisers and we wanted to take the song in more of a heavy direction. She’s great at melodies. I write pop music a lot. It’s her element which is a lot more abstract.”
