Detroit rapper Angel Haze has released a new video apologizing for her actions as of late, notably getting into a heated but short-lived rap beef with hip-hop artist Azealia Banks.
Although she did not refer to Banks directly, Haze told fans via a video she did not mean to come off as a bully.
“I really do apologize for all of the stuff that has happened recently,” Banks said in a video, “’cause like, I don’t like the fact that I was a bully in a certain way and I don’t like the way that I came off — I came off as a bully. I came off as a bully. Okay, whatever, anyway, thank-you and I love you and I thank you for supporting me and I’ll see you guys when I come out.” (YouTube)
While the tensions only lasted a few days, reports of sparked retail interest in Haze’s music surfaced last week.
Angel Haze also posted an overall gain for her available songs and “New York” EP; however, the combined sales for all her titles was below 1,000 units for the week. Last week, Banks and Haze exchanged insults on Twitter before lobbing hastily prepared diss tracks at one another. On Friday night, Banks then called the openly gay celebrity blogger Hilton a “f—ot,” a comment which has since received heavy criticism. Banks’ debut album, “Broke with Expensive Taste,” is due out in early 2013. (Billboard)
Earlier this month, Angel rapped over the late 2Pac’s “Ambitionz Az A Ridah” instrumental to diss Banks with her “Shut The F*ck Up” diss.
“Weak b*tch, Interscope be paying you to sleep/Meanwhile, I’m the one b*tch they praying you can beat/And to be honest, I really wanted to like you, but you ugly and you lame and your flow’s all recycled/And your broke a** is a broke b*tch with a fro b*tch/And I know some girls who knew you in like ’06/And they all say you was wild gay and wild lame considering you f*ck anything b*tch you f*ck in anything/I don’t have time for b*tches who be f*cking anything…” (“Shut The F*ck Up”)
A day prior, Haze dropped the anti-Azealia track “On the Edge.”
“B*tch I’m from the 313/Whip the f*ckin’ meat cleaver out like who want beef/F*ck you gonna do with this Diplo flow/Dissed you on own your sh*t, you should dip low ho/Wait, I want you b*tches so scared that your mental break/So you forever be broke with expensive taste/I bet you won’t leap, ol’ frog a** b*tch/P*ssy a** Courage the Cowardly Dog a** b*tch/Hold up” (“On the Edge”)
