New York hip-hop artist Azealia Banks may finally be ready to leave Twitter feuds alone after announcing an end to the publicized online incidents.
According to reports, Banks made a declaration to end her “terror” Friday (April 19).
Azealia Banks has made some waves with her Twitter rants, and it looks like the rapper could be ready to step away from her social media soapbox. The “212” singer tweeted (then deleted) on Friday: “My days of twitter terror are about to be over. I have to turn over my password.” It’s unclear why the Harlem-based artist sounds ready to relinquish control of her Twitter account, but perhaps it’s for the best. (E! Online)
Just last week, Banks went after fellow Harlem artist A$AP Rocky over comments he made about dark-skinned women wearing lipstick.
“Lol @ asap rockys lipstick advice.,” she tweeted April 10th.
“Some people should just come out of the closet.”
“So rocky takes a direct blow to my image about dark skin and purple lipstick, then as soon as I’m a offended …. I’m the bad guy.”
“Typical day in the life of AB.” (Azealia Banks’ Twitter)
Last month, Azealia publicly put her problems with Roc Nation’s Rita Ora on Twitter.
The rapper and singer have been playing the Future Music Festival throughout Australia. While they seemed to be getting along, their friendship quickly turned sour after Azealia suspected that the “R.I.P.” singer was trying to intimidate her. “Ever since I arrived on this tour Rita’s been going out of her way to try and intimidate me,” tweeted Banks, who just released her new single “Yung Rapunxel.” “Taking all these candids of me when I wasn’t looking, then posting and deleting them like a weak b*tch.” Banks called Rita “thirsty” and accused her of climbing over the wall of her dancers’ dressing room to photograph her.

Last summer, Azealia admitted she did not like resorting to Twitter to air out her personal issues.
“Of course, because it’s e-thugging… Who wants to look like that? But how else am I gonna reach y’all? I don’t have a T.I. to get on a radio show and defend me; I’m the one behind me. Y’all expect me to agree like, “Oh yea, I’m wack. I only have one song.” That’s one song y’all n*ggas don’t f*cking have. You might win some, but you just lost one.” (VIBE)
