New York rapper Azealia Banks has publicly apologized to fellow musician Kreayshawn after taking shots at her earlier in the year and revealed just how much she co-signs the "Gucci Gucci" emcee.
Communicating via Twitter, Banks even offered to collaborate with Kreay.
Then, all of a sudden on Sunday, it was as if Banks had a change of heart and tweeted the following. "@KREAYSHAWN I apologize for coming down on you so hard earlier this year. I missunderstood that pornhub rt. I can be really defensive sometimes. I'm just naturally rude. LMFAOO it's a NY thing... I can't help it." Kreayshawn graciously accepted the apology by saying the following. "It's all G! I fux with you[r] music above all! You have those fire barz gurlll!" Then, Banks suggested a collaboration between the two and even invited another friend along for the ride. "@KREAYSHAWN lets collab. Let's throw @NativeRaeen in the mix there tooo," Kreayshawn sealed the deal with, "I'm down!!! FIRE FUEGO!!" (Karen Civil)
According to reports, their feud stemmed from a Twitter re-tweet a few months back.
Banks sent out a public apology to Kreayshawn for her harsh words earlier this year. If you remember, Banks went off on Kreayshawn for retweeting Banks' video from a PornHub link. Kreayshawn responded with a tweet, "Come on you mad because I retweeted your link? Because I like your music? Pffff get outta here! Not a fan anymore." Banks decided to clear the air last night by saying she didn't mean to come down on her too hard. She even hints at collaboration with Kreay and up-and-coming rapper Angel Haze. (Complex)
With the tensions now cleared, Kreay can focus on her upcoming solo debut.
In anticipation of her upcoming debut album Somethin 'Bout Kreay to be released September 18, 2012, Kreayshawn unveils the official album cover artwork. The graphic design of the album artwork, which expertly mixes imaginative photographs of Kreayshawn with colorful illustrations, shows Kreayshawn being pulled into an alternate spacey, fantasy world. "I wanted an album cover that would really help to represent me and who I am," notes Kreayshawn, explaining how she came up with the design ideas. "Something that, when people first see it, they'll say, 'Only Kreayshawn could think of a cover like that.'" (Columbia Records Press Release)
Midwest rapper Riff Raff recently said the 22 year-old's new album could potentially go platinum.
"A lot of people, I think, 'cause she did that one song all the way last year, so I think a lot of people are thinking she's a one-hit wonder or something like that. That's not the case. I've heard a lot of new sh*t, her new music, and it's excellent. I think when it drops, it's going to sell more than anticipated. I think she'll go platinum. ... People are anticipating her album. When it comes out, I'm going to go buy it." (FUSE TV)
