Azealia Banks takes a dig at Kanye West for 'starving' her and reveals the 'day the shade began' with Rihanna
The singer revealed how frustrating it was to watch Kanye eat his pricey food while the rest of the room watched and he did not offer anyone even a piece of the food in the studio.
Azealia Banks has not been known to take things lying down and when she wanted to make her thoughts heard, she made sure that Kanye West and Rihanna were listening. The singer took to Twitter to share her experience working with both of them. It all started when Kim tweeted about artist/songwriter Rhymefest after he spoke about Kanye abandoning Chicago.
"U haven’t been right since u got kicked out of the studio in Hawaii wearing fake Yeezy’s @RHYMEFEST You’re over leveraging Kanye’s name & asked Kanye to donate money to u so stop w your fake community politics & lies. Truth is you haven’t been able to sustain the foundation," Kim wrote in her tweet. Azealia was quick to hop in and tell people what she really thought about it.
"But it’s dedicated to Kanye’s mom... I would assume Kanye would be the one sustaining the foundation + not everyone can afford to pay loads of $ sneakers. I was at that session and Kanye had a private Chef cooking food for only him. Kanye had niggas in the studio hungry and broke," she wrote.
She added, "Literally the most obnoxious thing to watch Kanye eat a plate of cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto off Versace plates and 24k cutlery while not offering anyone in the room a single snack. Ni**as kept looking at him hoping he would offer and it was the most awkward s**t ever." Looking at Azealia's tweet, one could see how frustrated the singer was.
"Like Nigga. I Know I did not fly all the way to Hawaii to lend my creative energy just to watch you stare me in the eyes and eat cantaloupe," she continued. Meanwhile, she took her time to reflame the feud she once had with Rihanna. Rihanna and Azealia started having their differences in 2017 when she stated some names while saying that celebrities used their influence to stir the public. She then shared Rihanna's phone number with her 446,000 followers on Instagram.
Now, she is revealing how it was working with Rihanna. "The other person who starved me out on the studio was Rihanna. I came to her house in Malibu at 8 pm once and she stayed upstairs and partied while I wrote. The whole time her team brought us two beers, a can of coke, and a jar of peanuts. There six of us and no chairs either," she wrote adding that it was "the day the shade began".
