US band and outspoken rapper combine
Azealia Banks is reportedly working with Fall Out Boy on new music.
The controversial US rapper tweeted about her latest collaboration on Friday (October 16) and appeared to suggest that the recording session with the US pop-punk band had already happened, telling fans she “couldn’t wait” for them to hear the results.
Fall Out Boy have a history of collaborating with rappers, having previously worked with Kanye West, 50 Cent, 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa among others. The band toured with Khalifa earlier this year on the ‘Boys Of Zummer’ tour. Professor Green, meanwhile, supported Fall Out Boy on their recent UK arena tour which ended earlier this month (October).
Azealia Banks has kept herself in the news in recent months with a large number of disputes with fellow rappers and other musicians.
Minaj called out Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards in August for negative comments she made in the press, later telling The New York Times that if Cyrus “wants to twerk with us” then she also needs to know “what we feel is unfair to us”.
Cyrus had previously addressed Minaj’s recent beef with Taylor Swift, saying that it was “not very polite” of Minaj to involve Swift in a conversation about racism in music.
Banks took tis as an opportunity to accuse Minaj of hypocrisy, writing on Twitter: “I wish Nic would stop trying to turn this Miley thing into a race issue cuz she was mute about cultural approp. until she became “victim”… Plus how u gonna complain about a video with skinny women when ur body is enhanced… You too were once a skinny woman.”
